Meet Skyler Baty of SB Monograms in University Park

Today we’d like to introduce you to Skyler Baty.

Skyler, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
People always ask me how I got started doing SB Monograms and I thought since today marks two years since my dad passed away, I would share this amazing story! 💙 My dad was put into hospice care in 2016 and I moved to Waco for several months to be with my parents during this time. While I was there, my dad encouraged me to take up a hobby. I honestly couldn’t think of one for a few weeks, but then it came to me! I love gift-giving and anything that has a monogram. After brainstorming with my dad, he said we needed to call my new company SB Monograms! I then took sewing lessons in Waco for the 10 weeks I lived there. A few days after my dad passed away, the sewing store I was taking lessons from called me and said I had a brand-new machine ready for pick-up. I explained I hadn’t purchased a machine, but it was then they informed me that my dad had called a few weeks before he passed away to order it for me. I couldn’t believe it! My dad knew it would bring me comfort to create custom gifts for others. He was a fighter, an encourager, a great dancer, and an amazing dad that always brought a smile to others. Without him, SBM would not be here today. We donate $1 of every order to cancer research at the end of each year in honor of him. I am thankful for my dad and hope I can continue bringing joy to all of you through SB Monograms! 😀

Has it been a smooth road?
Starting any company can have its challenges, but I have had such great mentors that have encouraged and helped me along the way!

We’d love to hear more about your business.
Whether you are looking for something to spruce up your cocktail party, or a sweet gift for a friend or baby, SB Monograms helps create a personalized embroidered gift for any occasion! We also do corporate gifts and weddings as well. I think what sets us apart is we embroider items that are not just ours, we embroider outside goods. Also, we use Robison Anton thread, which is the best thread on the market so your items will last a long time!

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes, I do. Low taxes, a low cost of doing business, and a business-friendly environment that sets Dallas apart. Nearly 40 companies among the Fortune 1000 call the Dallas region home. I think that says something! Also, the southern hospitality in Dallas makes it a friendly city!


  • $55 for a set of 4 cocktail napkins
  • Large monograms run around $100
