hello…I am ready to kill someone…..including my FI who tells me he things our favors shoudl not have the ribbon around the box of candy….he thinks we shoudl just have a plain old box….I think its because he just can’t be bothered with tying some ribbon!!! soo annoying! anyway – does anyone have a template or know of an online source that I can do a seating board for display rather than place cards? I can only set the page on word to like, 20×22, but I need it to be 20×24. and even if I could, I have no idea where I can get it printed!
To everyone who says, "oh, I have plenty of time", do everything as early as possible!!! I have now less than 4 weeks, and have no idea how I will tell people where they are sitting!

I think that you mean you want the finished product to be 20 x 24? Any professional printer should be able to do that for you. You can make your chart in Word with a smaller paper size, and have them scale up to the print size you want. Or you can do it in Excel – since there is no theoretical paper size until you set the print area, you get to make it as big as you want.

I took the floorplan that the caterer gave me as a pdf to Staples. They were able to scan it in and blow up the picture to half the size of a posterboard. It only cost $2. I’m going to add numbers and go back and lamenate it so it is sturdy. I’d hit up office/print retailers they should be able to help you!

You can set up your Word page to 10×12 and when you’re ready you can take the file to Kinko’s and ask them to print it at 200%.

I am using the template at http://www.weddingwire.com and love it. It is very easy to use and you can print it out in different sizes. You can save it also if you wanted to take it to a printer to print it larger.

Does your venue offer you a table set up chart? Mine gave me one, and I just wrote over the table the names of the 10 people at it. Worked really well for me – well so far anyway as I’m still getting RSVP’s back.

Check out the other thread, seating chart vs. escort cards. I have my seating chart that I made in microsoft publisher then had printed at a professional printers, but any printing place will work, staples ect.
