Everything you need to know

Embossing is our name for monogramming; a way of personalising your purchase with us.
We’re all about personal touches here at The Cambridge Satchel Company and we think embossing your initials or a symbol on to your bag or accessory makes it even more special.


The font we use to emboss our bags is called Edinburgh and it’s available in four different styles:



Add a symbol to your bag for something fun and personal.
We offer the Latin Alphabet (A-Z in lower case and capital letters) and the following symbols:

Capital Letters 11mm high. Font for all bags.

Capital Letters 5mm high. Font for all accessories.

We offer complimentary embossing of our bike logo. The bike is has been part of our logo since the company began in 2008 because bikes and Cambridge have a special place in our hearts.

* please note, all of our bags come with our logo on the reverse as standard. Applying the bike logo is counted as personalising the product, it will appear on the front of the bag and therefore is non-returnable.


Scroll through the gallery below to see how your favourite bag will be embossed.

Due to the shape of some letters and symbols, they may appear to have wider spaces between them (this isn’t the case).
Please note the spacing and height of your embossing may vary slightly from what appears on the tool above as every character is on an individual block. Our team work hard to ensure your embossing looks as well space and aligned as possible. The depth of the embossing that is imprinted into the leather may also vary, this is due to it being applied by hand on an individual basis and also the variation in the depth of the leather.

Embossing alignment will be as pictured above, with the left embossing option being embossed on the left hand side of the bag as it's facing you.


Embossing comes at a charge of £7 per letter (upper and lower case) and per symbol.
The maximum charge for embossing is £28. Please see below for a cost breakdown.


Unfortunately due to size, design details and different types of leather, some of our products cannot be embossed.
Check individual product pages for any exceptions to the above embossing guidelines.
