Stationery Inspiration: Monograms

Posted by

One of my favorite books to look to for typographic inspiration is Elsie Svenna's A Handbook of Lettering for Stitchers. I happen to do needlework, but you don't have to be a sewer to be inspired by this great book. It's a fantastic resource if you're thinking of using a monogram in your wedding. (Unfortunately, it's out of print, but you can find several copies for sale online.)

The great thing about monograms is that besides being a classic addition to your invitation suite, they can play a larger role in your wedding day.

  • Using monograms dates all the way back to the early Greeks and Romans. They are an elegant way for a bride and groom to create a personal symbol that represent their union. It can later be added on towels, napkins, pillows and a host of other things that represent their union.
