About Us

Monograms, initials, logos, icons…you name it, we create it. Since opening in 2010, Monograms on Webster’s embroidery and vinyl machines have put a personal touch on thousands of gifts. Our store has a wide selection of items for babies, toddlers, children, adults, and the home. However, if you can’t find exactly what you are looking for in our store, we welcome you to bring your own items in for us to personalize. After all, there's nothing better than seeing the excitement on the faces of those who receive the gifts we have personalized just for them. We hope you have fun shopping with us.  If you are ever in the neighborhood, stop by and see us!  We are located at 1214 West Webster Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614. 

Meet Maribeth, Owner

Maribeth began her small business journey in March of 2014 when she bought into Monograms on Webster as a partner. In March 2017, she wanted to give it a go on her own and she has successfully grown Monograms on Webster into a thriving neighborhood business over the last four years.

Most often, you'll find Maribeth at the store doing everything from helping customers, sourcing products, managing the team, and spending lots of time shoveling snow and mopping floors! Her favorite thing about owning Monograms on Webster is knowing her customers, and their favorite fonts and thread colors, by name.

Maribeth lives in the neighborhood with her husband David, her two kids Andrew and Elizabeth, and her dog Midnight, so you just might find any one of them in the store too!

Behind the machines, she works diligently to individually personalize each unique item that comes across her desk.
