Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you do the engraving? 

My husband and I engrave all knives in our home office. 

Which the most popular monogram-style used?

Roman monogram, circle monogram and interlocking are all very popular and the most recommended.

 What is the difference between monogram and initial engraving?

With Monogram style, the last name initial is placed in the middle (instead of at the end) and displayed larger than the other letters. Example: “William David Smith” would have the letters arranged in the following order: WSD

Monograms for married couples: One spouse’s first name initial first, the couple’s last name initial in the middle and larger, and then the other spouse’s first name initial last. So if Sara Jane Morgan married Jack Cooper Brown their monogram would look like SBJ.

Initials are in the standard order (first, middle, last) and are the same font size:  Example: Jordan E. Sullivan would be, JES.

What do you recommend for initials?

For initials, we recommend Roman or Goudy fonts. 

When do you use Script style for engraving?

Script should only be used for text writing – i.e. names and dates.

What are the common text phrases you recommend with the 15 character limit?
  • Special dates & anniversaries: January 12, 2017
  • Couple names: Ann & Jeff (a wedding)
  • Phrases: Shovel and Shuck, Shuck You, You’re My Pearl, Mother Shucker, Shucking Crazy
