About This Class

What is a monogram? A monogram is a design overlapping or combining two or more letterforms. It’s essentially a fancy way of saying a Logo using Initials or an acronym. Monograms have been around since 350 BC. They’ve been used in religion, war, currency, and as a way for a craftsman to mark their name.


The best part of a monogram is they stand the test of time very well. You can create a beautiful monogram now that will still be considered beautiful in 100 years. Regardless of trends.


In this class I want you to use your initials and create your own monogram. You can use it for your company (like me!), or to stamp envelopes or whatever you want.


That brings me to the contest. For the first 2 weeks of this class, you will be eligible to win your monogram as a stamp. Just post your project to enter! See more details in the discussion.


I hope you'll enroll, and make a sweet monogram with me!

The class is straightforward, fun and full of tips. I’d only added the hints when particular buttons are clicked, not always easy to get the shortcut (English is a second language to me).
