Personalization Shop Style Guide

To help you get started, we've put together a guide with our designers' personalization picks. With several options available, it's easy to customize your signature style! Choose from personalized ornaments, heat pressed linens, and monogrammed or personalized pottery.

What do you want to personalize?


STEP 1: Choose Your Style

Personalization is applied with a paint pen in signature Coton Colors handwriting. Three styles are available depending on the ornament design you choose. See individual products for details.


Create your custom message with our Traditional Style personalization. This option allows you to personalize with up to two lines of text. Add a name, a special date or commemorate an occasion. This style accommodates up to 20 characters.


Scattered Names

Celebrate every member of the family! This option allows you to personalize with multiple names. Up to eight names may be added. Each name may be up to 10 characters in length. Name placement is determined to emphasize the artistic nature of the ornament’s design.



The perfect choice for gift giving, this option allows you to personalize with both the recipient’s name and the gift-givers’ name. Our special "from" signature is signed with love and showcases an endearing heart. A special date can also be added.


Commemorate It

Commemorate a year to remember! This option allows you to personalize with a year. This style accommodates 4 characters.

Linens & Pottery

Linen personalization is achieved through heat pressing. Linens can be heat pressed in a variety of colors. This process uses the thermal transfer of letters to create a flat, permanent personalization that is imprinted onto your chosen linen. With this application, linens are machine washable on cold wash setting. Air dry is preferred, but linens can be tumble dried on a low heat setting. Ironing on the reverse side of the personalization application site is recommended for all linen items.

Personalization is achieved through the application of custom cut vinyl lettering making it an ideal choice for décor! This application is food safe, though knives should be avoided to maintain integrity and avoid scratching. Hand washing with mild detergent and a soft cloth is recommended for all vinyl applications. Harsh cleaners and abrasives should be avoided.

STEP 1: Choose Your Style

Monograms are a simple and stylish way to make your mark. More than just letters, they’re an extension of individuality and mementos for the years ahead. Single initial, single name or word and triple-initial monograms are available for select pottery and linens. See individual products for details about color and font availability.


Single Initial

An ideal choice for an individual (Victioria Livingston) or couple with the same last name (Victoria and Quinn Livingston).


Name or Word

An ideal choice for first names (Elizabeth), family names (Smiths) or favorite words (Laugh). Think playful, fun or functional.


Classic Monogram

The center initial will be larger than the others, and the initials will appear in the following order: first name, last name, middle name. An ideal choice for individuals with a middle name (Amy Catherine Bates) or a couple with the same last name (Amy and Conner Bates).


Block Monogram

All three letters are the same size and initials will appear in the following order: first name, middle name, last name. An ideal choice for individuals with a middle name (Laura Kimberly Dawes) or a couple with the same last name (Laura and Kris Dawes).

STEP 2: Choose Your Color

Linens, such as hand towels and napkins, may be heat pressed with a monogram in a variety of colors. Pottery may be personalized with a vinyl monogram or in signature Coton Colors handwriting with a pottery paint pen. See individual products for details about color availability. Personalization with the pottery pen is available in black only.


STEP 3: Choose Your Font

Some items can accommodate a single initial only, while others can accommodate up to a nine letter name or word. Font availability is product specific. See individual products for details.
