Fold-over notes

We offer folded notes on our Classic and Elegant papers as well as Crane's™. Additional options may be found in our store front. Traditionally folded notes have been characterized as either monogram notes or informal notes.

Monogram Notes

5.375” x 4” with initials embossed, engraved, letterpressed or thermographed on page 1— i.e., the front of the note after it has been folded. Monogram notes are frequently considered to be preferable to informal notes when it comes to acknowledging wedding gifts. The typical monogram format is one’s given name initial on the left, surname initial enlarged in the middle and then middle name initial or maiden surname initial on the right, but the initials may also be done in sequence (given name, maiden surname and married surname or first name, middle name and surname) with all the letters the same size. If you choose a combined monogram, the most correct method of choosing initials is to use the bride's first initial, the couple's surname's initial and then the groom's first initial.

We offer a variety of monogram styles and ink colors for your notes. Prices for the notes and an order form are available online.

Informal Notes

Fold-over notes 4.875” x 3.5” with one’s married name – e.g., Mrs. John Henry Smith – engraved, letterpressed or thermographed on page 1— i.e., the front of the note after it has been folded. Any of our typestyles may be used for the typestyle on the informal as well as adding a motif, embossment, ink color or hand calligraphy for a little different look.

The informal note, ironically, is considered the note that should be used to respond to formal invitations and correspondence. Some of our clients prefer the smaller size of the informal note to the larger monogram note (and some even use a monogram on the informal note instead of their name).

Prices for the notes and an order form are available online.
