Modern Monogram Stationery

Monogram letterpress printed in gray Shadow + Cocoa ink on heavy coaster paper

Wardrobe of stationery by Real Card Studio includes square notecards, notesheets and gift enclosures.


For many, the word "monogram" conjures up images of fancy initials in a swirly script. Now, I'm not saying that there is anything wrong with that of course, there is something quite special about letterpress printed ornate letters. But script isn't for everyone.

This customer, of Watermark Stationery, sought the class and elegance of monogrammed stationery in a style more suited to her modern preference. She found what she was looking for in Real Card Studio's stationery album with our "Pamela" style monogram. Her selection of these contemporary ink colors in a natural palette of light shadow gray and cocoa brown were the perfect match with the gray envelopes and looked just delectable letterpress printed on this very heavy textured Anisette stock. (It didn't hurt that her last name, and thus the most prominent letter in her monogram, was an "O", such a beautiful letter form to work with.)

Color palette: Gray and Brown
