Monogram Rules

Monogram Rules; Engraving standard initials

In order to engrave a person’s initials on a gift, we don’t have to follow the standard monogram rules. When we engrave a person’s initials into a gift, the font size of the initials stay the  same size. The first initials of the person’s first, middle, and last name are not set up in any special way. It is pretty standard.

For example: Henry James Carter. We would engrave all initials in the same font size; “HJC” as on the Crystal Decanter.

Monogram Rules; Engraving a monogram

When we engrave a monogram, we have to follow the monogram rules. We suggest placing the first initial of our client’s last name in the center and engrave it in a larger font size. Then we suggest placing the first initial of our client’s first name to the left of the center initial and placing the first initial of our client’s middle name to the right of the center initial; those two initials are identical in size, but smaller than the center initial.

For example: Lisa Grace Carter. We would engrave the monogram as the engraved compact  below.

Monogram rules; font styles & sizes and  gift ideas

Depending on what you are engraving the monogram to, typically the font size of the left and right letter is 24-point while the center letter is a bit larger with a 36-point font size.

We typically engrave monograms on a variety of products such as wine glasses, compacts, trays, jewelry, as well as beer mugs.

The client can choose from a variety of font styles as well as sizes based on their creativity and liking.

It is a great gift to give to a loved one or even yourself and can last a lifetime!

Engraved Surgical Instruments – Los Angeles

2_personalized-gifts-2sWe Do Surgical Instruments Engraving!

Recently we did an interesting project for UCLA Hospital’s OB/GYN Department. We were approached by UCLA’s surgical equipment sales rep, seeking a solution to nurses’s complaints that their surgical equipment was not being returned to their department.

We solved their problem by hand “micro engraving” “UCLA OBGYN” on both sides of every piece of surgical equipment. As you can see from the photo – the engraving is roughly the size of the word “LIBERTY” engraved on a United States Dime!

This solved their problem! If you have a unique engraving need, we have an engraving solution for you. We can engrave any size object – from very large to micro small!
