THREE LETTER MONOGRAM - STRAIGHT ACROSS
TWO LETTER MONOGRAM - CYPHER
A cypher is a decorative two letter monogram that can be used to combine a first and last name (dropping the middle or maiden initial) or two different last names when the partners both keep their last names.
Example – Mary Baker, Lauren Morris & Robert Bell
TRADITIONAL TWO LETTER MONOGRAM
A two letter monogram in traditional format will place both letters side by side the same size, and like the cypher can be used to either combine a first and last name or to combine two last names.
Example – Megan Patterson, Samantha Matthews & John Palmer
A single initial can represent either the first or last name. Single initials are a nice option for a guest room or for informal table linens.
Example – Mary Smith, Thomas Moore
