HOW TO CREATE A CIRCLE MONOGRAM IN THE MONOGRAM IT! PRO APP

1. Once you have downloaded the app, select the middle chevron button on the bottom of the screen. Select “Simple” for a plain background & choose a color. It really doesn’t matter what you choose, I use the lightest color.

2. Select the badge looking button to the left of the chevron button. Move the slider all the way to the left & the frame will disappear.

3. Select the “T” button for text. Alter the letters here if necessary. Monograms go first, last, middle. Select the circle monogram font & adjust size/color if desired. It really doesn’t make a difference because size can be changed later & the color will depend on your vinyl.
