A Little About Monograms

I was curious as to the reason for monograms.  I have an old linen table runner of my grandmother’s with her initials sewn into the middle.  People began using monograms to make their linens identifiable on wash days.

Monograms mean class.  Way back when, it was only the upper class who had monogrammed items.   Embroidered monograms for wedding gifts began with the families adding the embroidery themselves by hand, but now they can be purchased on silverware and many household items.  Couples getting married often like to have monogrammed items given to them as wedding gifts.

If the towels hanging in your bathroom are monogrammed, then you probably already know all about monograms, but there are plenty of people who are unfamiliar with the set up.

See the example below.

For the newlywed couple, the grooms last name initial – S- will be in the center, with the bride’s first name initial on the left and the groom’s first name initial on the right.

Zazzle ProSeller

Zazzle is an on-line, POD (print on demand) store where I currently run 7 shops (as of summer 2010). By constantly creating and promoting my stores, I made Bronze ProSeller status in June 2009 and now…………….

ProSeller Silver

Thank you to my wonderful customers for making me a Silver ProSeller in May 2010!!

At the end of 2008, Zazzle began a program called the ProSeller program and this title is awarded to any contributor averaging $100 (and up) a month in commission money, for 3 months in a row. We all set our own percentage mark-up, so it’s up to us what we make from each sale. As we sell more, the ProSeller levels increase from Bronze (making at least $100 month), to Silver, Gold and all the way up to Diamond (making $25,000) an month!

………………… I am pushing towards that Diamond level !!!
