Guide & Tips: Online Monogram Maker / Generator

1. Use this free online Monogram Maker to create your own personalized monograms. Learn how to monogram. After entering one, two, or three initials, the monogram generator allows you to select a frame (border), the font type, and color of the monogram. Use your custom monograms for weddings, for cutting machines (Cricut and Silhouette), for stencils, for painting and coloring, for sewing and quilting, for wood working projects and patterns, and other DIY arts and crafts. Your monograms can be printed or downloaded in PNG, JPG, PDF, or SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format.
 
2. The number of initials entered determines the monogram displayed.

4. If "Preserve Aspect Ratio" is set to "Yes", then the "width" of your image is automatically calculated. Changing the "height" will automatically change the "width". Your image will be scaled porportionally. The size of your image may change, but the overall shape will not change.
Monogram example
Height: 150 pixels.
Monogram example
Height: 100 pixels.
 
If "Preserve Aspect Ratio" is set to "No", your new image will match the values entered in the textboxes for "Width" and "Height."

Width: 150 pixels.

5. Images can currently be sized to a maximum width or height of 3000 pixels (or a minimum width and height of 10 pixels).
 
6. For images that will be used for print (e.g. coloring sheets), either save the images in PDF format, or specify a large pixel value. Keep in mind, most printers use a resolution of 300 dpi (dots per inch) or ppi (points per inch). If you want your final image to look sharp at 5 inches, then you would want to specify a pixel size of at least 1500 pixels (5 inches * 300 ppi). The PDF files are automatically saved at 300 pixel per inch (ppi). SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) can be scaled to any size without losing quality.
 
7. For best quality, save images in SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) format. Once saved, you can open SVG files using a web browser (Chrome, Safari, FireFox) and print them. SVG files can also be opened and printed using Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, CorelDraw, and the free programs Inkscape and Gimp.
 
8. See resizing and printing images, if you need help with printing images, resizing images consistently, or printing images (on multiple pages).
