• About Top Notch Monogramming

    At the urging of his parents Annita and Giuseppe (1931-2006) and with their generous financial backing, Antonio (Tony) D'Aiuto established Top Notch Monogramming on August 31, 1992. At first, Top Notch Monogramming was located across the street from where Aladdin's Natural Eatery is currently serving on Schoen Place in Pittsford.

     

    Two years later, Top Notch Monogramming moved to its current location at 50 State Street in Northfield Commons at the East End of Schoen Place.Tony is the sole proprietor of Top Notch Monogramming and has been serving the Pittsford, Rochester and Monroe County for 26 years!
