These terms are confusing to most. Embroidery is the stitching. Monograms are the three letters that are your initials. People often ask us to "monogram a name." A name can only be embroidered, not monogrammed. So, when you are choosing fonts or monograms, please keep in mind to only choose a monogram style if you are submitting initials. If you are submitting a name, choose a font style.
