A monogram is a unique motif made by overlapping or combining two or more letters or other to form one symbol. Monograms are often made by combining the initials of an individual or a company, used as recognizable symbols or logos. Why a Monogram? An individual’s monogram is often a very fancy piece of art used in heraldry, for stationery, jewelry, adorning porcelain, dinnerware and crystal sets, or for embroidery on clothing. They also look also nice as tattoos. Monograms may have two or three letters. Married or engaged couples may use monograms of their entwined initials, for example on wedding invitations. And some companies and organizations adopt a monogram for a logo, usually with the letters of their acronym.
