History of the Monogram

The Monogram Wedding Invitation Printable is a great way to display your initials in a classic, yet understated way. Monograms can be seen everywhere you look, but did you know they have been around for centuries? Where exactly did the trend of monogramming paper, jewelry, and other items come from? Many historians believe early Roman and Greek rulers were the first to use the monogram. Coins were monogrammed to recognize the ruler from a particular area. These marked coins were initially created to help with the transition from a bartering system to a monetary system.

How Monograms Were Used

Monograms were also used by local artisans and craftsmen during the Middle Ages to mark their work. Today, art curators are able to identify when artists created certain works by observing their monogram signature. European feudal lords also used monograms to mark their heraldic symbols, tartans, and family crests. Monarchs used monograms as the symbol of their kingdom and could be seen on everything from police badges, armor, flags, and important documents.

Monograms were first used for personal use during the Victorian Era. Monograms were often sewn on linens so they would not get lost during the wash process. Later on, monograms were used for decorative purposes, as well as for status and family. A family's place in society could often be denoted by their monogram.

This Monogram Wedding Invitation is very elegant. I grew up seeing so many of this kind of wedding invitation at home when my parents get invited to weddings. This was also the kind of invitation I had in my own wedding many years back. I will not hesitate to have this kind of invitation again for a relative.

This Monogram DIY is literally every sorority girls dream! I was so excited when I found this! It was perfect for my friend!
