How to Size: Due to the varying shapes of letters and the lengths of names, the monograms will be sized from length or width, whichever is greater. Generally the shorter the name, the higher the probability that it will be taller than it will be wide. "SMITH" for instance has 5 characters and would be greater in height than width. "SIMPSON" is 7 characters and would more likely to be somewhat equal in its height and width. "SAMUELSON" is 9 characters and will more likely be wider than it is tall. If height is more important, when you are ordering a monogram, please order it one size larger if your name is longer.
