Years ago when luggage stores were filled with cigarette smoke and it was normal to find a shop keep with cocktail in hand, monogramming was commonplace. If it was leather, it was stamped. Here at Kaehler 1920, we are proud to say that our stores no longer smell like cigarette smoke (and we usually hide the cocktails) but we do offer complementary in-house monogramming, as we have for over 90 years.

Monogramming (we also call it hot stamping, embossing or branding - it's similar to how cattle is marked) is taking the letters of your initials, heating them up to about 250F and pressing them into your leather product.

All Kaehler 1920 products can be embossed and all Kaehler stores have the equipment and trained individuals who can personalize your leather goods. If ordering online, don’t hesitate to call or email to discuss your personalization options. Otherwise, embossment is done on the interior pocket or monogram patch.
