Ok, ok.... so we don't own and operate a monogramming mill, but some days it can feel that way except everyday is a custom creation FUN day around the "mill!" We believe in shopping, great customer service, personalized products and quality merchandise. And that's what we specialize in, hoping that you like the same things!
I'm Ashley Miller Rice and Miller Monograms is me (and a village of employees -- employees I like to call family, they are nothing short of amazing!)
Welcome and thank you for joining us.... it all started in October 2012 when I was laid off from my corporate job of running sales for a national children's retailer. I wanted to take my hobby and love of creations to the next level. I wanted to make it a full-time career and then, BAM! overnight, here it is www.MillerMonograms.com (haha, well not really! It took long hours, research, registration, state and federal licenses, late-night web developer and graphics meetings, product how-to's and endless YouTube videos, but you get the picture) then, 10 months later, MillerMonograms.com now employees four others besides myself, Hallie, Kayla, Kristy, and Amanda. (they save me everyday! and to learn more about these gals, visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/MillerMonograms) whereeveryday is FUN!
We want to give our customers the opportunity to design, create and personalize our products as they wish while bringing you stylish and fabulous clothing and accessories trending today.
Meet the Staff
Ashley Miller Rice (Head Monogram Chief)
I am a southern girl at heart; born and raised on the coast in Eastern North Carolina. I love america, denim, diamonds and music! I am happy to be where I work because I laugh everyday, solve problems and create the most fabulous personalizations! I am loud and sometimes and get a lil' crazy not to mention outgoing, talkative, energetic, random, a good listener, and I like long walks on the beach, haha! I would rather sit on my deck with music than be anywhere else in the whole wide world, unless of course I am tropical bound with a drink in my hand--yea, that could top it! I often break out into spontaneous dance parties and singing, I bake when I'm bored, I dance when I bake. I twirl my spaghetti, not cut it, my left shoe goes on first.
Over the years, I've received a whole new part of sunshine to life by creating a life being a multi-business owner---it's not bossy, it's leadership skills! I dig the beach like its my job and have discovered how bee-you-ti-ful the mountains are! My mother is my angel on early and my grandmother is my angel in heave....I idolize my brother for his success and motivation. p.s. I love fried southern food, therefore, I must workout, occasionally!
That's me! In the summer, on a boat or in the water....heaven on earth to me!
Meet Hallie (Junior Monogram Chief, Sales Associate)
I am the blonde Miller Monograms Gal. At MM I manage all the social media accounts, organize donations, create custom quotes and estimate, work as a sales associate, and occasionally embroider and vinyl when needed.
I was born in Knoxville Tennessee, but grew up right here in North Carolina. Even though I've always lived in the south, I so enjoy the fall and winter months! I graduated high school from Caldwell Academy in May of 2014 and I am currenty taking classes at UNCG.
My favorite place is Charleston, SC because it's filled with quaint little shops and just has that older southern town feel. Hopefully one day I'll be living down there.I had to think about this one, but my favorite monogrammed item is a toss up between my gold cutout monogram necklace or my monogrammed Longchamp bag. The necklace goes with just about everything and the purse i carry basically every day!
Meet Amanda (Head Embroidery Juggler, Font Specialist, Embroidery Machine Mechanic)
I am Amanda Becker, and I can honestly say I am all things embroidery at Miller Monograms. If we have it or you bring it we will find a way to monogram it!
I was born in New Haven, Connecticut. As my mom always says she got me to the south as fast as she could. I lived in Baltimore, Maryland for the majority of my childhood. My mother is a true southern belle! She has always shared with me all things sewing and embroidery. I have had the gift of learning how to sew and use an embroidery machine from a very early age. A talent that today is not as big as it once was. It helps me to be a one of a kind person in this day and age!
I am also the proud mother of 5 fantastic children. As a mother I have used my talents to make sure my kids have a shirt or outfit for every holiday and season! I am thankful to have kids that love the things I make for them. I was a stay-at-home mom for many years. I never knew my passion for embroidery could have brought me to a job that I enjoy every day. Personalizing all the fun new things is a very exciting part of my job!
If I had to pick one item that was my favorite monogrammed thing, I would have to say its my car! I only had it for less than a day and I had to put the biggest monogram I could on my back window. As for something that I wear, it would be my monogrammed mother pendant necklace. Not only does it have my monogram, but it also has the names of all of my children so I can keep them with me wherever I go.
Meet Carolyn (Manager, Head Juggler Junior)
I’m Carolyn and I’m happy and amazed to be apart of the Miller Monograms family. I’ve been brought on as the retail specialist and will be helping you pick out the perfect gifts whether they be for yourself or someone else.
I was born and raised right here in Greensboro, NC. I went to school at UNC Greensboro and studied Consumer, Apparel and Retail studies, concentrating on the retail marketing aspect. Retail is what makes sense to me and what makes me happy. I live for helping y’all leave with a smile.
I love travel and adventures. My favorite place is anywhere near the water, and even better if I’m SCUBA diving and getting to explore under the sea. My favorite SCUBA adventures so far have been in the Florida Keys.
I have one beautiful daughter who is my whole world. She keeps me busy and smiling whenever I’m not at work. She loves the outdoors, so most weekends we’re out in the yard or walking around a park in the area.
My favorite monogrammed item is my white v-neck tee with green monogramming. My daughter has a matching one with her initials and I think we are too cute when we wear them on the same day. In a world where so much of what we buy is being mass produced, I love how your monogram makes something distinctly yours. It’s your way to show the world who you are and what you’re all about!
Meet Cathy (Store Cheif, Sales Associate Specialist and Fabulous)
I'm from Greensboro, NC (good ol' native). I used to be a teacher, then a Mom, now my kids are adults so I've been back in the job market for a few years-- My passions are loving to market products in retail environments and Miller Monograms gives me the perfect opportunity.
I've been married to my handsome husband, Michael for 26 years and we have three children: Patrick, Tommy and the baby girl, Bonnie! I'm an avid tennis player in my spare time and wish to take up more design projects. One of my biggest accomplishments is starting the First Step Project in Greensboro where we collect supplies for those in needs as the need arises.
I'm the main sales associate in the store and I would love you meet you---come on by and say hello! I might give you a hug too!
