Stationery Inspiration: Monograms
Posted by Lauren Richel Kelly
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.)
1 this is the lovely cover.
2 this page of cursive letter forms is very wedding appropriate.
3 this page shows different letters combining to create interesting monograms.
4 this is a grouping of fantastic letter A's.
5 another inspirational page.
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.
1 i love this sweet monogram by cheree berry paper.
2 a great example of how monograms can be used on wedding favors.
3 a letter M adorning a wreath on the way to a wedding location.
4 this cheeky monogram is from kate spade paper and would be a great for you to send thank you notes with your new married initials.
5 here a monogram is used on a lovely bridal umbrella.
What do you think? Are you planning to use monograms in inventive ways on your wedding day?
