The New Rules of Monogramming
Make Your Monogram the Centerpiece
"We can’t get enough engraving, so we like to add more to a monogram than just your initials. You could try using the monogram in the center of the design and then including a special verse or a phrase as a border around it. For example, you can have a bride's monogram in the center of a silver plate, and then the first words of her father’s wedding toast surrounding it. It makes the design even more special."
