Classic Prep Monograms
Learn about the online business a local lady launched to help you gift thoughtfully, accessorize yourself fashionably, and decorate your home with a personalized touch.
From monogrammed plates and platters to jewelry and stationery, Cincinnati-based Classic Prep Monograms has all of your personalized home decor, fashion and gift needs covered.
Michelle Brinker, owner of Classic Prep Monograms, has “always loved a good monogram” and was inspired to start her business by “the new and creative ways they [monograms] can be used to showcase personal style.”
Being an Ursuline Academy Alumna, Brinker is no stranger to being surrounded by color-loving preps. And if you’ve ever asked yourself if you can go overboard with monogramming, the answer is “no!” she laughs. Brinker proudly displays Reese Witherspoon’s quote on her website, “My sheets are monogrammed, so is my silverware and pretty much everything else I own. My rule is, if it’s not moving – monogram it.”
Now that the fall season is underway, Brinker has a few trend forecasts for the upcoming winter season. Monogrammed Blanket Scarves continue to be big for 2016 as well as our Pom Pom Hats. They just make me smile,” says Brinker. “Also, our Beaded Monogrammed Bags are perfect for Holiday parties. Believe it or not, the camo is our best seller!” She adds that their Game Day clutches are a close second.
If you plan on hosting a holiday party this year, or at least attending a few, Classic Prep Monograms has all of your party needs covered! “We love personalized frost flex cups for Holiday parties and they make great gifts as well,” says Brinker. “We also offer monogrammed napkins, drink stirrers, and super fun Disco Drink Tumblers which would be terrific at a New Year’s Eve party.”
With the season of giving right around the corner, Brinker says she loves giving monogrammed gifts because it shows the recipient that you didn’t run out and get their gift last minute. That doesn’t mean getting a monogrammed item is time-consuming, though – at least not at Classic Prep Monograms. Brinker says her website allows you to easily find what you’re looking for, quickly personalize it with your favorite fonts and colors, and then it’s shipped to you in no time.
Her holiday gifts include Monogrammed Ornaments, which Brinker suggests for stylish stocking stuffers. Or, for your co-workers, Brinker recommends a monogrammed travel tumbler or coffee mug (because work is tough enough – you may as well have a cute coffee cup to brighten your day). Prices on the Classic Prep Monograms range from $30-200.
