My Royal Monogram

August 1, 2010

The monogram commonly affiliated with Louis Vuitton, weddings, stationery and luxury cars, has its roots in royalty. Historically, a monogram was used as a royal signature. The Romans and Greeks used monograms as currency (transitioning from the barter system). High society Victorians adopted and personalised the monogram to signify their place in society. Fast-forward a generation or two.…then came the evolution of the distinguishable monogram – LV (and others in the world of luxurious fashion).

From L-R: antique coin locket, Louis Vuitton luggage, ananya correspondence card, ananya wedding cake topper, diapers and ananya monograms created for bridal couples

ananya loves the uniqueness of personalised monograms – from the most simple font to intricately designed logos incorporating the key initials. One’s royal monogram should be just that – Regally yours! Create a monogram that is timeless and multi-functional; your own personal brand. Even babies have monograms these days. The quest for establishing your regal brand is limitless.

ananya recently created a monogram commissioned by a couple for their multicultural wedding to signify the beginning of their life together as one. The monogram was not only used for the couple’s wedding stationery but incorporated as a cake topper (in Swarovski crystals), postage stamps, personal stationery, address labels, and custom made luggage, to name a few. The bespoke lives on in this one creation to represent them as Mr & Mrs!

Tell us about your royal monogram…. we’d love to hear from you!

Until next time…Namaste and enjoy ananya life!

    Beyond weddings, monograms are the perfect way to signify your personal signature! I love that ananya has incorporated our personalized wedding monogram into our post-wedding stationery that we always get complimented on. Thanks Ananya.

    I’m a Monogram fan myself!
    I first created one for my wedding and I’ve been creating new ones since that day. I’m trying to learn and grow in that area. In my opinion, a Monogram can express the union of to souls like nothing else. When well done they are harmonious, elegant and modern with the extra bonus of being graphically appealing!! 🙂
    All the best to you!
