The talented embroiderers at The Monogram Studio artfully stitch beautiful motifs onto household items, clothing, and office supplies. After dropping off or sending in any item of their choice ($20+ for three-letter monogram, $25+ for names), customers can sport their monikers on terry-cloth robes, or legally claim rights to lost wallets by having their initials professionally sewn into them. Because The Monogram Studio eschews the use of embroidery hoops, each fabric surface remains unsullied from unsightly folds or circles. The studio's online emporium tempts shoppers with sundry items for personalized stitching, such as golf towels ($35), suitable for thoughtful gifting, or quilted saddle pads ($60) for helping horses to remember their riders' initials.
