A monogram is a design composed of one or more letters, typically the initials of a name, used as an identifying mark. The Monogramming feature offers a simple way to create personalized monograms using a selection of pre-defined monogramming styles, border shapes and ornaments, together with a set of tools to help you place these elements in creative and decorative ways.

Lower level products do not provide the full range of monogramming functionality. You may have access to lettering capabilities but not ornaments or borders depending on the product level you are currently using.

Monogram elements

The Monogramming feature creates a single ‘monogram object’ comprising some or all of the following elements:

LetteringA single lettering object (initials or name)
OrnamentsUp to ten ornament sets (each of which may comprise multiple copies of an ornament or embroidery design)

BordersUp to four concentric borders.

Assuming that all elements are present, the monogram is stitched in the following order: borders (1, 2, 3, and 4), ornament sets, and lettering object(s).
