Hi! I’m getting ready to make my escort cards. I’m using cards I bought from the store but I’d love to see how yours looked .. individual or the layout of all of them.
Did you write your names on there? did someone else write them?
Did you print names off? If so, what did you use?

I made mine as wine charms for the champagne flute favors, but they were printed out. I just designed them all in PowerPoint with the little paisley swirl on one side, chopped them up with my paper cutter and glued the linen card stock to a backing of brown card stock. They looked great!

I don’t have a picture of them here, but we named our tables after racetracks. The cards were printed with an outline of the track and the couples names. Those were put in little magnetic frames which were stuck inside a bigger frame that we had on a stand. We cut down a magnetic whiteboard to put inside the big frame.

I haven’t made mine yet but this is what I’m planning on doing for our outdoor rustic/vintage wedding:
And here’s a Pinterest board I created with a bunch of other inspiration before I decided on that style:

I printed mine using an inkjet printer, then we used a stamp with embossing ink and powder, which created the darker blue shape.

I printed ours out onto white cardstock with my inkjet. The card had the person’s name and table number and a color border that signified their food selection. Then I cut those out and placed them on the folded over colored cardstock in a coordinating color for their food choice. We arranged all of them on two tables in alphabetical order so guests could easily find their card. (These are the extras for the guests that didn’t RSVP or came as a surprise date, that’s why there’s no individual name or table #. Glitter was for food allergies/gluten free folks to make sure the servers took note.)

I printed mine – and don’t have a good pic of them, but they were very simple & I added a small little olive (that was an abstract image from my invitations that had an olive branch.)
I then slipped them onto corks.
Here you can see some of them that were left on the table, in the background a bit

@iarebridezilla: O.M.G. That is amazing. Would you mind terribly if I stole it?

@Nurse_Bee: Haha go for it!!! I figured out how to make the wine charms from a DIY tutorial here on the Bee so I can hardly take full credit 🙂 I got the champagne flutes from discountmugs.com and with our names and the date and a little graphic etched on them, plus shipping, they worked out to be about $2.50 each!

Here are ours. We printed them onto Paper Source’s printable escort card sheets, then glued the black swirly designs onto them. We cut out the swirly designs using a cutter from Michael’s. The cards matched our invitations, which had the same fonts and black swirly thing.
