Unique Monograms combining multiple styles.
Monogram Styles Used:
Eileen Roche, the Editor of Designs in Machine Embroidery Magazine, writes a weekly blog online. In preparation for her 4/27/11 post, she contacted us regarding the wedding of Kate Middleton and Prince William, and Royal Monograms.
Richards Jarden's response:
The intertwined monogram on the Royal Wedding commemorative items for sale is fine - stately, traditional, serious.
No one asked me to design one for them, but if I did it would be interesting to try to incorporate some aspects of the couple themselves:
**She: a regular person, college graduate, has worked as an accessories buyer in the clothing industry. Fashion conscious, fashion icon. 5'10" tall.
**He: a member of the British Royal Family, Kings and Queens for the past 1140 years. College graduate. President of the Football Association, the governing body of English professional soccer. 6'3" tall.
Overall, a vertical monogram seems appropriate.The initial C comes from our Arabesque Monogram Set 7 - symmetrical, graceful, with a stylish but not too feminine quality. The W comes from our Diamond Monogram Set 6 - balanced, traditional with a modern, all stature. The crown is from another source.
The overall size is 5 7/8" (148 mm) tall by 2 1/8" (54 mm) wide.
How we made these monograms
Embroidery software programs make it easy to delete elements, copy and paste elements from other designs, resize different aspects, and merge elements together into one new design. Each program is a bit different in how the Edit functions are managed. Once you have learned to use yours, creating new monograms from other monogram parts is creative and fun. Experiment with different arrangements and colors.
