Add a Monogram

There’s a new way to personalize your new bag… …With brand new monograms! Made a lot like how we make our logos right here at Frost River, heat and pressure make a permanent and good lookin’ impression on our premium leather. It’s a nice touch and makes for a great gift:

  • It can be a handy badge for you to identify your bag without a doubt on a luggage carousel.
  • Mom would be touched to receive such a personalized gift.
  • Most any new grad would love and cherish a new brief with their initials, they’ll be geared up for success entering a new workplace with a personalized, handcrafted-in-USA bag.

It’s a handmade, personalized match made in Duluth! A simple order system: Pick the bag you want, type your characters (up to 4) into the space provide to add a monogram and add the whole kit’n’caboodle to your cart. Where do we sew ‘em? Some bags will have several options for Monogram placement, others will be limited as to where we can place the patch. You can make a request on placement in the “Order Notes” area of the checkout page when you place your order, but ultimately it’s up to us as to where the monogram will go. If you have any questions about placement etc. be sure to get in touch or let us know in the Order Notes at checkout, as once we build your custom bag with a monogram, it is not returnable.

  • Cost per monogram is $25
  • Add a Monogram by selecting up to 4 letters of your choice and then “Add to Cart”
    • If monogram isn't an option for the softgoods you’re selecting:
      • Select your pack, bag, or accessory to be monogrammed then “Add to Cart”
      • Head over to our Monogram page, choose up to 4 letters, then “Add to Cart”
  • Complete your order, give us up to ten business days to get your custom bag built
  • Get out with your new, stylin’, personalized bag!

How we make ‘em: We’ll load your letters (all upper case) in a carrier which looks a lot like an old printing press. The whole works gets heated up, and when up to temp, is pressed with a pneumatic ram into a patch made from our premium leather, and voila! A custom branded patch emerges!

What’s Available? We’re able to add a monogram to many of our packs and bags after they’re built, like we do for our Canvas My State buckskin patch program. That allows a quicker turnaround time for you as we don’t need to build a monogrammed bag from scratch, so you can expect a new monogram order to ship out within ten business days of when you place your order. If you’d like to add a monogram to a bag that doesn’t have it as an add-on option, that’s a possibility too, you’ll just need to add the item you’d like to get monogrammed to your cart, and then add the separate Monogram product to your cart. If you’ve got more than one piece of gear in your cart, please specify in Order Notes at checkout which one you’d like to get monogrammed.

The Fine Print: Monogrammed bags are considered a custom item and therefore are not returnable. But why would you want to? The monograms turn out nicely, the font is professional, and adds a nice touch to any of our Reliable Softgoods. By using heat combined with pressure, it will look great for years and won’t harm the integrity of the leather as simple hammering sometimes can. Note: We reserve the right to refuse a monogram request at our discretion. If there are any issues, we will contact you via the email address or phone number you provide in your order. Details:

  • All monograms are stamped with an upper-case, serif font. See photos for examples.
  • 4 character maximum
  • Letters are approx 5/8” tall
  • Leather patch is approx 1” x 2.5” Leather is full grain, oil-tanned and premium quality sourced from the S. B. Foot Tannery in Red Wing, Minnesota. It’s the same stuff we use for our trims, bag bottoms, and lighter duty straps. It’ll match well because it’s the same stuff. We apologize, but at this time we do not offer embroidered monograms.
  • The Frost River Monogram Alphabet. Take a look at how the letters look to get an idea of how your monogram will turn out. For reference, each letter is just under 1/2" tall while the leather is roughly 1" tall.

    Wowza! I purchased a messenger bag as a graduation present to a college student who is getting ready to start his teaching career. The monogram was the perfect touch to an already stellar product. It just can't get any better than this!

    Really like the final look. LOVE that it would take four letters when so many places only do three. Needed four for my company name and this worked out great! Super helpful in positioning on my bag as well. All in all, another super Frost River experience!

    Purchased the Zippy Tote for a gift and added a personalized monogram. Well executed and looks great on the bag. Wish I would have purchased this for my bag:)
