This is the ORIGINAL wooden monogram. We have seen so many “variations” of our name being used to sell wooden monograms. We are the original (we were literally the first to bring these to Etsy…check out our shop date) and can say with confidence that our quality is the best.

It can be hard to tell what you are purchasing from a photo online…in person, the difference in the quality is beyond comparison. We’ve been doing this a long time and know what we are doing.

Southern Nest monograms are all created using imported Russian Baltic Birch wood (not to be confused with many of the lower quality birch options.) This is important, as the script is very intricate and using the top quality wood makes it strong. Our monograms are cut with top of the line, professional machinery by skilled technicians. After they are cut, they are sanded professionally to make the edges very smooth. Since this listing is for the “unpainted” version, they are stamped with a signature “Southern Nest Blue” dot of paint on the back and tagged with instructions for how to paint and a story about the blue dot. Our presentation makes our monogram perfect for gifting. If you wish to purchase one of our painted versions (our finish is done by professionals using a gorgeous, lustrous lacquer finish) then visit our shop here https://www.etsy.com/shop/charminglittlenest and find our painted version.

Our monograms are more expensive than some of the others you can find online…why? Our quality is the best. We use extremely expensive wood to reduce incidence of warping, breakage, and produce a quality product. We’ve seen many other companies produce a product that “flops” when moved and has the most jagged, splintering edges we’ve ever seen. (This isn’t something that is easy to see in an online photo.) When you hold our monogram, the piece stays sturdy…this is due to the quality of our wood. We then sand it to perfection, making it ready for you to paint. Nothing else is needed. The grain of our wood is smooth due to the high quality so priming isn’t even necessary.

We also let our monogram be wider than the height. What does that mean? Many companies produce a “square” monogram, meaning the height and width are the same. Doing that makes it cheaper for the company (they can get more cuts on a sheet of wood) but results in a slightly “squished” looking design. We refuse to compromise the beauty of your monogram to save some money. Comparing Southern Nest to other online monograms is comparing apples and oranges…they are simply DIFFERENT products. Do not be misled by online photos. This is YOUR monogram and we believe you deserve high end design.

The monogram in the photo is the 18-inch (Large) monogram. It is about 21” wide (depending on initials) and is cut from 1/4" wood. The large monogram is a beautiful statement for your home. Just tie on your favorite ribbon and hang it from your front door. Put it over your bed. Hang one over your child's bed or crib. Prop it on a shelf. It will look fabulous in any room!

This monogram comes "ready to paint." Spray it with several light coats of spray paint in your choice of color!

Your monogram will ship 2-3 weeks after order is placed. Please put the initials you would like in the order notes. If you need your monogram by a specific date, please put that in the order notes as well so that we can “flag” your order with the date needed. We will do everything we can to accommodate you on event specific dates.

Traditionally, monograms go as follows:
For a couple: inital of wife's first name, initial of last name, initial of husband's first name
Individual: initial of first name, initial of last name, initial of middle name
If doing local pickup (we are located in Huntersville, NC) please enter coupon code PICKUP at checkout to pay nothing for shipping.

Southern Nest is recognized as the top quality wooden monogram. To help our customers distinguish a "true" Southern Nest creation, we have created Southern Nest Blue. Each Southern Nest creation comes with a card detailing the origin of the Southern Nest Blue dot, which has become the symbol of recognition of Southern Nest quality products.
