In 2023 we noticed a few key trends in our overall business:
- Monogramming your own goods, which we refer to as BYO ("bring your own") is more popular than ever. The range of BYO goods we monogrammed in 2023 was vast... from embroidering vintage Madeira linens to laser-etching Hermes AirPods to foil embossing champagne bottle cooler bags. And everything in between!
- Our clients have frequent gifting needs and are therefore looking for accessibly priced goods that look far more luxurious than their price point. It's a sweet spot that we've nailed, if we do say so ourselves.
- Minimal, recyclable and/or reusable packaging is highly desirable, with our reusable cotton drawstring gift bags added to almost every order.
- Experimentation with more elaborate monogram styles is on the rise; we saw an incredible variety of fonts and thread colours in 2023.
And finally, while there's always an appetite for something new, our classic bags and accessories remain your go-to favourites.
