Monogram Etiquette

The Traditional Monogram

This is the most common form of monogram. The traditional monogram set up is as follows: First Name Initial / Last Name Initial / Middle Name Initial. So if your name is Jennifer Marie Smith, your monogram would be JSM.


The Couple Monogram

This monogram is for couples who want to incorporate two names into their monogram. The order is as follows: Husband First Name Initial / Last Name Initial / Wife First Name Initial. If John and Jessica Smith want their monogram together, their initials would be JSJ.


Monograms for Men

The typical suggested monogram for men is the most straightforward of all the monograms. The order goes First Name Initial / Middle Name Initial / Last Name Initial. For John Andrew Doe, the monogram would be JAD.
