If you love to create monogrammed home decor, accessories, and gifts, you are going to love this fabulous collection of monogram fonts. I’ve rounded up the BEST fonts to use for creating monograms. This collection includes free and inexpensive fonts along with tips on how to create monograms.
And, let me just tell you all – I LOVE to monogram everything and I especially love to create monogrammed gifts. I use my handy dandy Cricut to add monograms to gifts and if I can’t add a monogram to the actual gift, I create monogrammed gift bags and gift tags.
Over the next few months I will be sharing free SVG cut files for monograms so I wanted to share my favorite fonts that I use on a regular basis. All of these fonts are perfect for creating personal, couple, and family monograms.
What is a Monogram?
A monogram is a design or logo using the initials of a person’s name. Monograms are often used for decorative purposes, such as on a glassware, towels, clothes, and more. The main features of a monogram include font style, order of initials, and size of the letters.
Types of Monograms
Single Letter Monogram
Single-letter monograms represent the last name for single and married couples. If you are monogramming a single letter onto a gift for someone, use the first letter of their first or last name. For a couple, use the initial of their last name.
Two Letter Monogram
For individuals with no middle name, the monogram includes the first and last initial. For couples, create monograms using both first initials.
Three Letter Monogram
Three letter monograms can be displayed two ways: monograms where letters are all the same size and monograms where the center initial is larger. If all the letters are the same size, initials are in the same order as your name: first, middle and last. If the monogram has a larger initial in the center, initials are ordered: first name, last name, and middle name. To create a traditional monogram for a couple, begin with her first name initial, followed by the married last name initial, and end with his first name initital.
What Can you Monogram?
You can monogram anything! You can monogram clothes, towels, mugs – pretty much everything in your house. Use your Cricut to create monogrammed tote bags, wood signs, gifts and more!
