Frequently Asked Questions

Can monogrammed items be returned or exchanged?

Absolutely! Every item we sell is backed by our legendary 100% satisfaction guarantee. Returns and exchanges are no problem – even if your item has been monogrammed.

How many characters can fit?

It depends on the item, as well as the style you choose. Some items have space to fit up to 10 characters, while others are limited to three. The maximum number of characters will be listed when you configure your monogram.

How can I tell if an item can be monogrammed?

If the item is monogrammable, you will see a checkbox marked "Add a Monogram" on its product page, above the "Add to Bag" button.

In what order will my initials appear in my monogram?

When you order monogramming, we'll ask for the initials in the order you would normally write them (first, middle, last). On some traditional monogram styles, the last initial is automatically placed in the middle. You will have a chance to preview your monogram prior to placing your order – so you'll see exactly what it will look like in each style.

Do you do monogramming at L.L.Bean stores?

Most of our retail stores have monogramming services available, with the exception of our store in West Lebanon, NH, and all L.L.Bean Outlets.

Monogram Character Sizes

Monograms take up approximately the same space on each product, regardless of the number of characters. As a result, the character size and presentation varies based on the style you choose and the number of characters. In general, the more characters you enter, the smaller each one will be. Please note For items with print or patterned backgrounds, we recommend bold or block font styles for best results.
