You must enter your initials exactly how they should appear on the item.
Traditional monograms for women are in the order of first name, LAST NAME, middle name, the last initial being larger than the first and middle.
For example, Theresa Claire Baker would be TBC.
Traditional monograms for men are in the order of first name, middle name, last name with all initials being the same size. To enter initials for a male you must enter it in as all capital letters in the text field.

For a couple's monogram, the wife’s first initial is first, then the last name initial then the husband’s first name initial.
For example, Rachel and Eric Smith would be RSE.
For a single initial, choose Single Initial when you are adding your personalization.
For example, Macie or McCarthy would be M.
Two lines of text is always an option at no additional charge.
The size of the monogram will be approximately 2.5 in X 5 in. Please keep in mind, the more characters the smaller the personalization will be. The height will depend on how long the text is that we are monogramming. For example, a long name like Samantha will be smaller than a name like Ava.

The pattern on the product I received has a different placement than the one pictured on the website. Why is this?
Our bags are made from large spools of material. Depending upon which area of the fabric your bag was cut from, the pattern placement will vary. We recommend you choose a monogram thread color that will look good on any area of the pattern. Pattern variance is normal and returns will not be accepted.
I ordered two of the same product monogrammed, in the same font, why do the names appear so different in size?
We have a fixed monogram area of approximately 2.5 inches x 5 inches. A shorter name like "Sam" will appear larger than a longer name like "Miller". Also, if the name has a descender (a letter that has a tail dropping down below the baseline) in it the name will also appear smaller. For example, a name like Dylan or Maggie will sew smaller than names like Amber or Hannah.
