MONOGRAMMING, DEBOSSING AND PERSONALIZATION
How do we monogram?
We use a process called debossing which stamps the shape of your chosen initials into the leather. This process involves pressing a heated die into the leather to create a lasting monogram or logo.
What options do we offer?
Due to the restrictions of the equipment we use to deboss leather items, the initials you choose will be all the same size and will be stamped in the order of first name, middle name, last name. We use capital letters for the best effect. We do not have lower case letters. We offer three sizes of fonts which our monogrammer typically chooses to best fit the item to be debossed:
- Large letters (36pt) are 0.39 inches tall (1.1 cm) and we use these for larger items such as briefcases & luggage.
- Medium letters (24pt) are 0.31 inches tall (0.6 cm) and these are usually used for portfolios and accessories.
- Small letters (16pt) are 3/8 inches tall are usually used for wallets and personal leather goods.
We offer the understated and classy “blind” debossing where our monogrammer debosses your leather with no added color. On most leathers, a blind debossing results in a crisp, clean look so we tend to recommend this look on many items. For a more noticeable, bolder effect we can foil stamp the letters in gold, silver, black or brown.
We have two fonts to choose from: Arial and Times New Roman.
What products do we offer that can be personalized?

For our internet customers, many of the leather items on our website offer monogramming. Click here to see a wide selection of products we carry that are eligible for monogramming.
Many of the products we offer are monogrammed in-store. Our monogrammer will decide on the best placement of your initials. If you would like to request a specific placement for your monogram or have any questions, please give us a call before placing your order at 1-800-720-2928 or leave a comment when placing your order. If your suggestion is not workable we will always contact you before monogramming your leather item.
Monogramming for internet orders is usually done without color, but on many products you will be able to select your font and monogram color. Please note that while we may offer several colors and fonts, our monogrammer may contact you to recommend what he feels will work best with the type of leather and construction of the bag you order after he inspects the item. Once a product is monogrammed, it is non-refundable and cannot be returned.
Please note that monogramming may add 1 - 4 business days to your order's shipping/delivery time. If you need your order sooner please give us a call at 1-800-720-2928.
What will it cost you?
There is no charge to personalize items bought at our Atlanta store that cost over $100. There is a nominal charge for items bought at our store that cost less than $100. We also monogram items that you already own. Prices for monogramming items that you already own vary and start at $25 for 3 to 5 characters.
For leather items bought online at AtlantaLuggage.com, many offer free monogramming. However, this rule does not apply to all our leather products and you may see prices ranging from $10 - $25 depending on the brand and item cost. You will see the cost on the product description page under the color choices.
What about logos and corporate orders?
We also offer corporate logo debossing. Call 1-800-720-2928 and ask for Lewis or email Gill at email@example.com. We will handle the entire process from making and setting up the die to monogramming the items that you or we provide. Turnaround time for corporate logo monogramming is typically less than 10 business days. The turnaround time starts when we receive your EPS or PDF file containing your logo and payment of a $35 deposit.
You will need to provide us an image of your logo in a high quality PDF file, or an EPS vector file. The maximum size we can make your logo die is 1.25” high and 5” long. The cost of making your die will be $125. The cost to stamp each piece is $10 - $15 per item depending on quantity and placement.
