Monograms are increasingly becoming a popular and very stylish part of our everyday lives. From bath towels to luggage to…you guessed it…stationery, modern women and men are seeking monograms as a fun and unique way to personalize the goods in their lives. In a world of mass-produced, similar looking products, monograms offer a means of creative individualization. Monogramming is simply the process of marking an item with an individual’s, couple’s, or company’s initials in a stylish way. A personal monogram serves a practical purpose: to identify the owner. And, often times more importantly, a monogram serves a decorative purpose: it allows the owner to send a message about her or his personal style. Specifically when it comes to stationery, monograms send a message that the owner (or writer) knows who he or she is. When you have plenty of tasteful monogrammed stationery on hand, you’ll be able to send a message about your own personal sense of style each and every time you send a note in the mail. With a variety of monogram styles and colors, you can add your own personal, elegant touch to your correspondence cards, notes, address labels, and so much more. Monogram FAQs: What’s the...Read More

Men do not typically sit and write letters for hours about personal matters. Most men prefer to write quick notes and be done. If they need to write a letter, they typically go for more formal stationery options. We have put together a quick reference guide if you’re looking for a nice gift for the man in your life. Correspondence Cards Men usually prefer flat stationery instead of folded note cards. Correspondence cards are generally in the 4″ by 6″ size range, made from heavyweight card stock, come with or without a border and are typically used for brief notes. They are simply flat cards that are used for shorter correspondence. Social Sheets These sheets are perfect for men, measuring somewhere around 6″ by 8″. Social-sized stationery simply folds in half and slips into matching envelopes. Excellent for quick letters. Men do write an occasional long letter. Be sure to order blank second sheets.
