What is Personalization?

Personalization is the process of adding words, numbers, designs and other characters onto specially designed products through engraving, embroidery or other personalization techniques. This allows you to create gifts with names, dates, poems, sentiments or any other message to make the gift unique and memorable.

Personalization Pricing

The following prices apply to each gift you have personalized. Minimum charge is $6 per item for any message (if message is only one word, letter, number or initial).

Premium Fonts are $3.00 additional charge. Our premium fonts will stand out more than traditional lettering on any product. Your message will look darker and easier to read because of a special engraving technique we've perfected. For more information, see Premium Fonts below.

For more information on fees associated with engraving gifts purchased elsewhere, please visit your local store or call Customer Service at 866-902- 4438.

Premium Fonts

Our premium fonts will stand out more than traditional lettering on any product. Your message will look darker and easier to read because of a special engraving technique we've perfected. With these fonts, we'll engrave more of the surface area where each letter sits, creating an overall deeper feel that will set your message apart.

These fonts are multiline fonts, more surface of each letter is engraved, so it appears darker. The premium fonts have more lines making each character than our standard multiline fonts.

Thread Colors

We offer a variety of colors to embroider our soft items such as throws and blankets. Our personalization experts have only chosen options that look great when embroidered. So choose whichever color you like, and rest assured we' ve taken the time to ensure it will look great when complete!

Monogram Etiquette

When engraving a monogram for one person, we recommend placing the first initial of the last name in the center (and making it larger) with the first initial of the first name to the left and first initial of middle name to the right. So

Jennifer Ann Smith would appear as JSA.

When engraving a couple's monogram for a wedding, anniversary, etc., the first initial of the couple's last name should appear in the center, with first initial of the woman's first name to the left and first initial of the man's first name to the right. So

Jennifer Smith and Ken Smith would appear as JSK
