Such a great idea–

You know what… I know DIY can be tedious, but I remember a post somewhere about making them from scratch. -Just a thought in case you find all the other options to be too pricey…

DIY Custom Matchbooks

Otherwise, I am sure you can google some vendors without difficulty!

I saw a vendor on etsy that does these, search for her there and i think a bee blogged about it too, I want to say Miss Fondue but I am not sure.

you could make a custom rubber stamp and buy some white matchbooks which you could then stamp the monogram on.

Try http://www.foryourparty.com.  They did custom matchboxes for me, and they turned out great.  I think they also do matchbooks

I love your family tradition!  Such a neat keepsake.  How about Gocco?  I just did my STD postcards and tested them for waterproof-ability and they were prefect.  Possibly you could Gocco them?

For Your Party has a 50 piece minimum order, and their prices are basically 50-cents each for match books and $1.00 each for match boxes.  They will send you samples if you want to check the print quality, but basically it’s waterproof – anything that would damage the printing is also going to make the matches useless (say, if you drop them into a water glass).

Most of their site is designed around using pre-loaded elements to create your design, but they will also custom print with your design at their "sister site":

Hey Stargirl,

If you are worried about ink running, then use an oil-based stamp ink. It takes longer to dry and you will probably have a tabletop full of drying matchbooks for awhile, but no running afterwards. Speedball also makes a blockprinting ink that would work.
