About MonogramExpress

Sales 44,567
On Etsy since 2012

Bringing the latest trends to you!

We started in 1995 selling online on our website WWW.ANACLAIRES.COM

We have grown since then and have found some great items our customers love. We decided it was time to open our shop on Etsy and offer our lightening fast embroidery. We can do large orders for cheer and gym teams as well as a small order of just one bag. We thrive on getting the job done quickly and correctly.

We ship all day every day, except Sunday. Usually we will get your embroidery out the same or next day. Our mail truck comes at 4PM, any orders in by 2 PM EST that all have all the information we need to sew, will be shipped in most cases.

We take pride in our brides! We love working with brides to make their day perfect and special. It is your special day and we work hard to get your bridesmaids gift "just right"

I design many of our items now while building our brand. So how do I come up with designs? Sometimes it is because I have a bag I use that just does not do what I want it to do. So, I sketch out what I want, send it to our plant, and make a few test samples. Then we monogram the item to see if it will sew like we want it to. Then we field test it. Will this item hold up? Is it durable?

Other times, I have an item in my mind that I want to make. I play with the design until I think it will work. There is a lot that goes into design. I have to make sure the webbing is the right size, that the fabric is the correct dernier. Where do i want pockets? I have to consider the monogram, we do not want a pocket where we will sew the monogram!

I also consider who I sell to. Since we do items for the Emmys, the Golden Globes and popular TV shows, I have to keep in mind that men are not going to want a flowery girly bag! Women are easy, we are versatile and like alot of designs. It is much harder to design one bag that I can change material on and it will suit a man as well. But we did just that for the Spring line! Did you know our double jewelry, cosmetic bag is the only one in the world? I designed it and manufactured it. The design has really taken off!

Once I narrow down the new fabrics for the seasons, we do test bags in the fabrics and bring them into our retail store. Some fabrics make it past our employees and customers, some do not. Some styles may not look good with a particular fabric. It takes 6-9 months from start to final selection for a season.

We are housed in a 7500 square foot warehouse. We have multiple commercial embroidery machines, that is our secret to shipping your orders so fast!

We have just added jewelry and T shirts to our line up. We make our jewelry in house and we design all our T shirts in house. We started with T shirts in our store. We sublimated right in the store and sold them in the retail store. That worked out well for us, but we needed a partner to print with a different process than what we do in house. We can now print on anything. We even print pillowcases in our store and pillows. Partnering with another printer opened us up to being able to print on a wide variety of substrates that our sublimation did not do well.

Thank you for stopping by our store! We appreciate your business.
We are open 9-4 Monday through Saturday Our Number is 843-947-0533

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Please review your order and make sure you have provided us with the information to sew your item. We need to know the last name initial for women as it goes in the middle and is larger. If the order is for a man, please tell us in the notes to seller as the last name initial is last and all letters are the same size.
We ship very quickly, changes to an order are not possible after an order is submitted. We may actually have your order in production in 10 minutes or less.
If you do not provide a font choice, we will sew the font that is in the picture of the listing. We will try to reach out to you via email. But we must have a response within 3 days.

Shipping charges are to one location only.

Sizing details

Specific sizing for all our clothing items is listed in the item itself under description. We also provide sizing charts when applicable. Once we monogram an item, it is not returnable.

Custom and personalized orders

Please make sure you give us all the info we need to sew the item. Review your order and make sure we have a name or initials, thread color and font selection. Not providing all the information will hold up your order. If you do not provide a font or thread color, we will use the font and thread in the picture of the item.
We need to know the order of the initials you provide. Please specify the last name initial. If we are unable to reach you via email in regards to the order of initials, we will sew in the order given. If the initials are DTP, we will assume the P is the last name and it will be placed in the middle and be made larger for a woman. Please review your order and make sure we have this information

Custom and personalized orders

We do not accept returns for used items or items that have been personalized unless we are able to determine that we monogrammed the item incorrectly according to the order. If we have monogrammed a defective item, we will replace it but we will not be able to change the monogram font or thread color
A defective item is one that comes to us in a defective manner, It is not a bag that has been ripped or torn due to too overloading the bag with too much stuff. At our sole discretion, we may request an item to be returned for a refund at the buyers expense. Defective items will be issued an RMA number and will need to be returned before we reship another item or issue a refund. We do not refund until the item is returned.

Custom and personalized orders

Size of Monogram

The size of the monogram of the items shown in the photos is approximate for the monogram. Short names will sew larger than a name with 9 letters. Our standard sew is approximately 2.5 x 5, which is standard monogram protocol, for a name unless the name has alot of characters, then it is smaller. There are thousands of combinations of fonts and letters. It is not possible to guarantee a sew size as it is dependent on the number of letters as well as the font and capitalization. This is all a function of the software and the length and height are dependent on each other. If we are given two names to sew, we generally reach out and ask if they can be stacked which allows us to sew larger.

Custom and personalized orders

We must now ship on the expected ship day. We can no longer hold an order waiting on a response to our emails in regards to your custom/personalized orders. We strive to offer excellent service and have over the last 7 years. Please check your Etsy mail as this is our only mode of communication on your custom/personalized order to make sure we are sewing what you asked for. We do have orders with no name or initials. no thread colors, no fonts. We want your order to be perfect, so we need your help on occasion. Thank you for helping us make your order perfect.
