Has anyone attempted to make these, and if so please share your experiences.
It’s either make and print names, or buy some from the store and attempt to write them out nicely (too small to print). I don’t have any friends / family with nice handwriting who are willing to help either.
Advice would be much appreciated.

I’m having my made for us because I’m in awe of the work over at Momental Designs, but if I hadn’t found Kristy I would probably use a free print, check out:
They have escort cards on there you could easily use as placecards. I’d find a nice font and print the names on too 🙂
Let us know what you come up with!

@pink_sherbert: i bought some that i could print off on the printer. they were ok but imo the template never really lined up perfectly so i had to do a lot of tweeking. if i had to do it again i would just make mine with coloured card stock and print the names out on white labels. i’ve seen some nice ones on the diy section on wb.

Thanks girls. Lots of great ideas. Wish I were more creative!
Have just made some simple ones on A4 sheet split into 6. Edwardian script names with simple boarder 🙂

I made my place cards like the ones above. (I never took pictures though!!!). Our theme was Christmas- green and ivory. We used different green plaid and striped ribbons and different shades of green card stock. I bought an oval punch to punch out the oval shapes. Then we used a regular holepunch to punch out the holes on each side to string the ribbon through. We used fine point markers (black) to write the names in script. They were really cute! It was also fun to make them with my family and bridesmaids. Good luck!

I just did ours, last night. :] I designed them as 4×4, so when foled they’re 4×2. I don’t think the pic shows it very well, but we distinguished meal choices with the colour of the border (blue for chicken, silver for beef, and pink for children–just our 7-year-old DD, and 4-year-old niece).
They match all of our other stationary, and were a lot less hassle than I was expecting them to be.. thank goodness!
