Get Personalized This School Year


CULLMAN – The beginning of a new school year is such an exciting and sometimes stressful time. A new routine can be hard to get into, but it can become a comforting constant once it is set. Back to school shopping has been in full swing and most have taken full advantage of the sales happening. There is another way to send your kids into the school year even more organized and fashionable.


In the hustle and bustle of school it can be easy for kids to misplace items or for teachers to mistake one child’s items with another. To combat the confusion and make life easier, consider monogramming your child’s lunch box, backpack or nap mat, clothes and more. Some shops can even customize goulashes for rainy days. One business that is well known to do amazing work in the area is Mongrams Plus.


Monograms Plus owner, Margaret Hamm, says that while orders from this point won’t be ready for the first day of school, their three day turn around makes it possible to have items personalized quickly.


“We’ve been in business for 15 years, and we have a combined 45 years of monogramming experience,” said Hamm. “We offer some brands like Stephen Joseph that are exclusive to us, and they are a top selling brand for backpacks, lunchboxes and also nap mats. We carry the biggest selection in town of monogrammable back-to-school items.”


At Monograms Plus, a large wall in the store is filled top to bottom with adorable backpacks, lunch boxes and more. You are sure to find everything you need in one convenient location.


“We have been extremely busy and we are extremely thankful for that,” Hamm said. “Even though this is one of our busiest times of the year, we have still been able to keep that quick turnaround for our customers.”


Another great shop that customizes merchandise is C&C Graphics. This shop does some amazing work for their customers at competitive pricing. From rain boots to backpacks, they can take care of your needs. In addition to embroidery, they also offer screen-printing, which can be a cost effective way to customize clothes and other items.


“We are conveniently located in the middle of Cullman next to the Downtown Grill,” Amy Key, employee of C&C said. “We have some really great artists here who do amazing work. We can do anything; umbrella with pictures, clothes, bags, the sky is the limit. Anything that can get a logo on it we can do.”


These shops are ready and willing to help you with your back to school needs. If you are late getting your merchandise customized, have no fear, these businesses can help. Great pricing and quality work is their priority.
