Hey Ladies 🙂
I am having a terrible time coming up with a stylish monogram that I can have stationery printed up with because of the letters in our monogram. First of all, our last name will start with a T which is bland in most scripts and then WAY over the top in others.
More importantly though, my name starts with and A and his with and S. No big deal right? WRONG! Try and find a script that has them be anywhere near the same level of embellishment or width. The A is always much larger. This makes it hard to make things symmetrical and I found a border that I love, but it is too obvious when things aren’t centred perfectly.
So, I present to you my latest attempt (the only one worth passing on). Please be honest.

please don’t get discouraged..but to me that looks like a J.

I read it at a T, but I can see how it might look like a J.
Have you tried mixing and matching fonts? Perhaps you could find the letters that look best from several different fonts that comliment each other. Especially if you will mix and match lower case and capitol letter, it may not look like they’re from different fonts.

i can see your dillema. did you try using the s first and then a second? i think compositionally that would look more aesthetic because the s would lean towards the t and the a because of the shape kind of closes the whole thing.i dont know how to articulate it but it just seems like the a’s belly would look better on the outside of the t rather than before it.. the way it is now, it doesnt really flow… i really think it would look so much better if you switch them… and maybe use a font that has less of a slant.. one that the letters would be more upright. and my last suggestion is that the border should not touch the a, or if it does then it should touch the s too, but then it may look too cramped.
or you could like what rosychicklet said- play with different fonts, maybe a non-cursive t with italicized a and s would work? i could kind of see that actually…
thats just my 2 cents. i hope it helps!!!

No worries V, that’s exactly the trouble I was having with things… Ts are difficult!
Anyway… I think I came up with something that will leave no confusion and also works with the banner idea I have for the church. Let me know what you think.

that’s a cute idea with the established dates 🙂 I think it works, but i’d suggest making the "a" a bit smaller (maybe just one or 2 points smaller) and move it a little more left from the "t" so there’s some more space like there is between the "t" and "s". I really like the fonts you use!

I absolutely LOVE that final monogram you’ve come up with. The combination of fonts is perfect.
