It’s due time I gave something away, don’t you think? You may or may not know that I am a graphic designer by trade, specializing in logo design. Therefore, I have an extensive reference library of related material, but one of my favorite collections of books are my volumes of vintage monogram designs. Monograms are essentially personal logos, after all, and I love any chance I get to use them.
A few months back, a JSIM reader asked about the CH monogram in my blog header and where it came from. I told her I collected monogram books and to email me her initials. I went through all my books, scanned and scanned, and sent her a sheet of monograms containing her two and three initials, as shown. I can’t possibly do that for everyone, but I can do it for a giveaway winner, right?! So let’s have a giveaway!
If you are the winner of the Vintage Monogram Giveaway, you will receive from me: One digital sheet of various monograms of your very own two and three initials. I will scout through all my monogram and cypher books, scan any that apply, throw in your name in some fabulous script typefaces- (why not!), and create a personalized sheet just for you. I will provide the art in various digital file formats for print and web. You can use your monograms for stationery, rubberstamps, pattern design, blog design elements, avatars, Etsy shop logo, signatures, and more! And, unless you plan on changing your name, you can use these forever!
To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is follow my blog (see link in right column), and post a comment letting me know you’re entering. If you already follow my blog, thank you, just comment that you are entering, (so easy!) You MUST leave a way for me to contact you in case you win. DEADLINE TO ENTER IS Midnight, Saturday, May 16. I will pick a winner and post their name on Sunday. Good luck!
