Monograms, you can't get much more personalized than that! A Monogram is most often created using the initials of a person's name, including first name, middle name, and last name. The order of the initials depends on the type of font used, script font vs. block font.
For example, when using a script font for a monogram pattern, you use First Initial, LASTInitial, and then Middle Initial, with the Last Initial (middle letter) as the largest. With script font monograms, these letters are often intertwined. When using a block font and all the letters are sized the same, you would use the initials in the order they are usually found: First, Middle, Last.
However, you land on order; you're sure to have fun with a monogram in your craft and design projects. You'll find monograms in these different types of designs: wreath, circle monogram, split monogram, monogram SVG frames, and more.

When using monogram SVG files, the type of font used varies. As mentioned, script fonts are pretty popular for monograms, as well as block fonts. Split monogram SVGs use a single letter, usually Serif Fonts such as Times New Roman, and have a "split" through the center of the letter, creating space for a name to be entered.
Split monograms can also be super creative and include flowers, flourishes, and other fun embellishments. One other type of monogram SVG you'll find is the single initial monogram used in conjunction with last names and is popular with sign makers.
