We Make It Personal

At Initial Inspiration we strive to make your whole experience personal. The history of the monogram was simply to identify personal belongings. While the same is true for today, personalization has remained a popular and unique way to be identified.

We know that you want something to wear, have or even give that is meaningful and special. It is your desire for thoughtfulness that allows us to help you make something personal. Even beyond the traditional monogram, our services allow you show off your name, logo or memorialize a special event. The opportunity to personalize is all yours. Initial Inspiration is more than monograms. We want to help your business or organization look professional with logo apparel and items. Show your school spirit through the fundraisers we do with local schools. Support your favorite team members by wearing their name and number while at the field. Create those individual favors for your bridal party or that big birthday celebration. If you have the idea, we can help you create it.

We want to inspire you to be YOU by making it personal.

Our Story

Initial Inspiration originally started as Kids & Sew On in one room of my home. Inspired by a hobby in quilting, the desire for an embroidery machine, and the first person to ask if I would make a patch for their son’s backpack; I knew I could make this into a business.

Through small jobs and the desire for new products, it was time to achieve the dream of a store front. In Fall 2007 Kids & Sew On officially opened its doors in downtown Waynesboro. The hours were slim, but the products were plenty including clothing, bags, and a variety of children’s items. Growth continued, and it was exciting to add more decorating processes including rhinestones, vinyl and full color digital printing.

Even though Kids & Sew On was growing, the name did not truly reflect the business. It was time to “grow up”. In January 2011, the business moved to a new location and officially changed its name to Initial Inspiration where we reside on Main Street today. While our products are a little different and our hours are regular, you will find the same quality embroidery and individual service.
