How to pick the perfect monogram

Adding a monogram to your letterpress wedding invitation suite is a stylish and sophisticated way to personalize your paper goods. We offer a variety of options for 1, 2 and 3 letter monograms, and you can add a monogram to any of our 300+ invitation designs for no additional charge! Monograms can be created from any of our fonts for free, but if you’re looking for a custom, hand-calligraphed monogram, those are also available (additional charges do apply). Today we’re sharing some inspiration for monograms that will go perfectly with a destination, formal, modern or vintage wedding invitation set — use these ideas to help pick the perfect monogram for your own letterpress wedding stationery!

DESTINATION
This destination invitation not only uses sea-inspired colors, but a monogram created from the indigo font paired with star motifs. Both the font and stars of the monogram reflect the tailored look of a sailor’s uniform – making it a perfect addition to this nautical inspired invitation. If you’re having a destination wedding, consider incorporating a symbolic motif into the monogram.

FORMAL
Formal invitations tend to work best when an ornate, yet elegant monogram is added, so keep this in mind if you’re having a traditional wedding. Monogram 1o takes on the appearance of a royal seal and gives this invitation a completely dignified look.

MODERN
Bright colors and quirky, over-sized, hand drawn fonts can really modernize an invitation. We used monogram 2j on this wedding invitation for a fun, playful look that represents the bride and groom’s connection. If you’re having a modern wedding, consider a monogram that reflects the personalities of the bride and groom.

VINTAGE
This invitation encompasses the art-deco feel of the 1920′s, when flappers and speakeasies were all the rage. Using inspiration from vintage signage from this era, we paired the Strana script font and monogram 3e – a combination that will take you back in time. If you’ve decided on a vintage theme, be sure to select a monogram that reflects the old-fashioned feeling of your wedding.
