One thing I have seemed to notice that has become a huge trend is monogram items. They are everywhere! From shirts to necklaces(I wear an A necklace myself) to iPhone cases to planners. You name it and you can get it monogrammed. The days of only having your initials on your LL Bean canvas tote is over. You can go wild and even get your Louis Vuitton. It is all matter of style, taste and design. Once you know what you want and how you want it you are good to go. With that said there are a TON of websites out there that you can find exactly what you are looking for. Below are a few of the ones I have come across and are favorites of mine.
Logo designer, Mica May, was always a notebook junkie – but couldn’t ﬁnd the PERFECT one. On a whim, she began designing them for herself, with patterns + insides she wanted. Clients & friends wanted them too, so she threw some patterns up online and May Books was born nearly overnight.
Dear BaubleBar Shoppers, our story began seven years ago in New York City, where we became fast friends after bonding over our love for afternoon shopping breaks at Saks Fifth Avenue, located a dangerous two blocks away from our demanding jobs in finance.
In the midst of a shopping spree, we had an epiphany: despite owning piles of shoes, closets full of handbags and fistfuls of pashminas, fashion jewelry was the one accessory that had yet to capture meaningful space in our closets.
We began to wonder why…
Swanky Press is your one-stop shop for all the latest invitations, party goods, and hip, personalized gifts. The majority of our designs are exclusive to Swanky Press, so you won’t find them anywhere else.
Swanky Press believes that you should get exactly what you are looking for – not the closest thing that a big retailer happens to sell. We are happy to add touches and tweaks that make your personalized items unique to you. All of our designs include font and color changes at no additional charge.
After ordering, you are sent digital proofs by a real designer, not an automated ‘bot. Swanky Press never charges extra for proofs and tweaks. Your designer will work with you until your proof fits your style perfectly – offering any special touches you need. Unlike the big-box sellers, your personal designer will hand-typeset your order, making sure the layout & design perfectly complement your greeting and/or photos.
