It's on the inside of one of the straps - that's where the crafsman recommended it was put. I got to see it being done - fascinating!! We were lucky to have a craftsman visit the store last year, and I had it done then...it was free of charge. They do it in the colour to match the bag. ie: My Kelly has a silver stamp, so the monogramming was done in silver-leaf. They have gold, silver, marron fonce, rouge H, noir...can't remember the rest.

One of my bags is just heat-stamped with no colour, but has gold hardware, and when I asked about that one, they said they would heat-stamp the monogram, if I ever decide to have that one done.

no problems. I love monogramming...I'm a bit of a Martha Stewart, in that regard......

By the way, they can monogram lots of things. Wallets, keyrings....the whole shebang.

I don't intend selling my bags, so monogramming isn't a problem, but I have seen Kelly's online that have the monogram front centre of the flap, and they don't fetch a good price, generally.

I have a vintage Kelly that is monogrammed under the flap, so it doesn't show....

Living in the "wild west" I asked about having a bag monogramed. They have to be sent to either New York or California. I think they look great.
