DODGEVILLE, WI--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2016) - In 1963, the United States Postal Service introduced ZIP codes so that mail could be delivered with greater efficiency.

Personalization Makes Any Gift Special
"There's nothing like giving a gift knowing a little extra thought was put into it," said Gebhardt. Lands' End offers thousands of items that can be monogrammed, embroidered, heat stamped or etched.
Lands' End is working with Nachtmann, a German crystal house that has been producing world renowned crystal for nearly 200 years, for a collection of barware, bowls and votives that can be etched with an initial. Sets of wine glasses and whisky glasses, a decanter, a carafe and more are elegant options for hostess gifts or to deck the halls.
Expert monogramming and embroidery is available on just about anything that will take a stitch, from scarves to totes and bedding, starting at just $6 and adding only 1-2 extra business days for delivery for monogramming and 3-5 extra business days for intricate embroidery icons including a new nutcracker, Scottie dog and skiing snowman. Look for heat stamping on fine leather goods including valet trays, buttery soft gloves, a leather wristlet and more.
