It’s true: Around here, everyone has at least a handful of customized creations donning their initials. From simple to sassy and everything in between, people make it their mission to create monograms as unique as they are. Here are our favorite local spots to call on when we need monogrammed goods.
The Loveliest Company
These monogram mavens have set up shop in an Uptown abode that is just the loveliest. And while they can embroider basically anything under the sun, we are suckers for their guest towels, napkins and coasters. With more than 40 monograms to choose from and an in-house embroidery machine, there is no excuse not to walk out with a chic customized creation or two.

Lover of snail mail? Having a big party that calls for impeccable invites? Need custom gift tags for holiday presents for friends and family? Whatever the case may be, this is our definite favorite for personalized paper. (Especially if your taste skews more timeless than trendy.)

Skyler Baty Monograms
This one-woman band has become quite well known in the Park Cities for her magnificent motifs. And while we’ve liked every Instagram picture that’s popped up on her feed, we can’t stop drooling over her elephant napkins. They’re not the literal definition of a monogram, but we just had to include them since they’re so damn cute.

SEW STICHIN’ FANCY
Instagram is the platform of late for appealing to shoppers, and Samantha Wortley found that it was also the perfect place to set up her modern-day monogram shop. Although she has been in business for only a few months, the proof is in the puddin’. Her work is both darling and speedy, which is the best kind of one-two punch.
