A Brief History of Monograms

Monograms first appeared on Ancient Greek coins to mark the city where the currency originated from. Through the ages, the monogram motif became a sign of nobility and aristocracy, and many artists used them to distinguish their work as well. Today, everyone from fashion houses to individuals can have a personalized monogram. These symbols play an important role in branding for business and in customization for personal housewares and gifts.

Handmade by Stamps

Handmade by stamps add a final touch to any handmade gifts or items, connecting the crafts person to the recipient of the gift. These monogram stamps aren’t just for handmade paper goods, either. We carry ink that can print onto a variety of surfaces, including wood and plastic, so you can leave your mark on all your handmade products.

Monogram Stamp Body Options

We carry several body styles for your monogram stamp that you can choose from based on your needs. If you’re not sure which style is best for you, read below to learn some of the distinctions.

Wood Handle Monogram Stamps

Wood handle stamps are excellent for custom monogram stamps because they provide a classic look and feel, hearkening back to the early days of the monogram. These options are economically friendly, and they give you the option to switch ink colors between impressions. However, if you don’t want to use a separate ink pad, you’ll be better off with a pre-inked or self-inking option.

Trodat Monogram Stamps

The Trodat stamp is a high-quality self-inking stamp that allows you to choose your ink color at the time of your order. These products are good for at least 7,000 ink impressions before you’ll need to re-ink. Trodat monogram stamps are excellent for wedding or invitation monograms because you’ll be able to send out all your custom stationery before needing to re-ink.

MaxLight Monogram Stamps

MaxLight stamps are pre-inked with your choice of ink color and can print over 50,000 impressions before the ink runs out. These are the best choice for high volume stamping, so if you’re printing your business logo on packing materials, for example, a MaxLight will be up to the task.

Whether you need to add personalization to your business’s order packing slips or to the books in your home library, we have a custom monogram stamp that’s perfect for the job. You can go with one of our stock designs or upload a custom-drawn image for your monogram. Either way, these stamps will leave a good impression--wherever you choose to use them.
