Our leather monogramming service saved the day for a young wife in Atlanta who wanted to surprise her husband with a special leather planner before his upcoming business trip. The only problem was the planner had someone else’s monogram on it and the wife had tried to remove it with rubbing alcohol. The result wasn’t pretty as you can see from the picture above. Although the monogram was removed completely, so was most of the leather dye used to originally create the planner which left a big gray smudge on the bottom right hand corner.
Her husband was leaving for a trade show later in the month and she really wanted his initials monogrammed on the leather in place of the now smudged area. She was devastated when she saw the dye come off while she was working on it and calling us was a last ditch effort to just cover it up.
We were able to take on the challenge! Not only did we cover it with a new monogram, we fixed the leather area and brought it back to its original state.
We covered the area with a black leather dye marker to neutralize the gray color. Then we treated the area with black shoe polish and leather cleaner to get the leather condition back to it’s original state.
Desiree hot stamped a new gold foil monogram over the newly refinished area. The result was amazing! You couldn’t even tell the leather had been damaged. See the result below.
Our leather monogramming service goes the extra mile to not only ensure a beautiful monogram, but we also ensure the item itself returns back to the customer in even better condition than we received it. We always clean every item until it shines. This was an extra challenge for us, but the results were worth it and the client was very, very pleased. She couldn’t wait to give the “new” planner to her husband before his trip. It’s a great feeling to know we were able to turn her mistake into a treasured gift.
