Art By Susanne McGinnis
A monogram brings a classic expression of individualism that’s at once personal and warm, gracious and refined. The following tips and pointers make it easy to make it personal. The following outlines various styles appropriate for today’s couples. Whichever approach you choose, a monogram is more than just a combination of initials; it’s a way to give your own individual stamp to an everyday item – or to make a gift especially personal.
A Guide to Monograms
FOR COUPLES WITH THE SAME LAST NAME: Traditional 3-letter monogram for a couple with the same last name, i.e. Carol and Ethan Manning: CME For names with a prefix, keep it simple and elegant. We recommend using “M” for McClean, “O” for O’Connor or “V” for Van Dyck. Using the entire family name is an elegant option (Miller), or perhaps the use of a single “M”. FOR COUPLES WITH DIFFERENT LAST NAMES: For couples with different last names, such as Emily Rogers and Carson Miller, a 2-letter monogram in the order of their choice is recommended: RM or MR FOR COUPLES WITH HYPHENATED LAST NAMES: For couples with the same hyphenated last name, such as Emily and Carson Rogers-Miller, a 2–letter monogram in the order of their choice works best: RM For couples with different hyphenated last names, such as Emily Rogers-O’Connor and Carson Miller-Smith a 2-letter monogram in the order of their choice works best: RM
Our paper ketubahs (papercut ketubahs included) are printed on cold press, acid free art paper, the standard in artistic reproductions. This paper is slightly textured and can be ordered with or without name printing.
Canvas ketubahs have a glossy look with texture and shine. The canvas can be framed behind glass or can be stretched by a framer. Our canvas ketubahs require name printing.
We offer the canvas stretching feature in house as well. When ordered this way, the ketubah is stretched by hand on a specially built frame in a style known as gallery wrap and comes ready to hang complete with a wire at the back.
