The next time you’re in a Coach boutique, ask (politely, of course) to see their 100 Monograms personalisation service, which is in a nutshell their complimentary offering if you are a Coach customer. Let me explain. You know all those little leather hang tags that are now synonymous with the American leather goods maker? For the longest time you could have them monogrammed, but it was only recently that they added more designs to the repertoire that currently stands at about 100 different designs.
Besides the usual suspects like alphabets and numbers, there are now 4 different Coach Beasts (you know, Rexy and gang), New York City icons (hotdog, taxi and of course, the Statue of Liberty), Coach Emojis (remember those funny wacky faces?) and wait for it, even all 12 animals you’ll find in the Chinese Zodiac (no, not kidding). Then there are the familiar and the fun, from a donut to lighting bolt, the choices are literally endless.
And after you’ve settled on the design (or designs, since you are allowed up to 3 different characters/icons/numbers depending on the size of the hang tag), you can then decide on the colour, which ranges from the most shimmery of metallics to the brightest of fluorescents, or even blind embossing if you so choose.
So how do you get to enjoy this personalisation service, you ask? Well, in order for your hang tag to be personalised, you’ll need to get a bag that comes with a hang tag first, right? Yes, all Coach bags come with one, but if you don’t want to experiment on it just yet, ask (again politely, of course) if you can select from the seasonal hang tags that come in 2 sizes. Yes, there’s no additional charge, but like I mentioned earlier, it really helps if you already bought something, with this additional goodie to be considered the icing on the cake.
