Monogram Guide

People often ask ‘What is the difference between a monogram and initials?’.

Initials are the first letter of each one of your names combined in order. For instance, John Thomas Hancock’s initials are JTH.

Monograms are also the first letter of each name but the order is different. The last name initial goes in the middle and is slightly larger. For instance, Katherine Marie Hancock’s monogram is KHM.
