I just made some place cards from a kit I bought at Michael’s.  There is an online template at the company site that does a really good job.  I kept their font choice and printed them out in ten minutes after inputting my info.  They are plain, but pretty… pearl white, silver edge.

When we went to look at invites they told us that a lot of the time the venues do it – so ask. Of course, when we asked – our venue doesn’t (boo) so we built the escort cards into the pricing of the invites from our printer. 

If we hadn’t done that though, I def. would’ve gone to Michael’s and bought one of their kits. Although I kinda hate her the Martha Stewart line Michael’s carries is really nice.

Our sounds just like FMILady except they have a red border.  Super simple to just print out on your own!  They’re folded/tent style too!

Mine are DIY.  They are 2.25″ tall by 2.25″ wide (the paper itself is 2.25 x 4.5 and folded in half).  I used a textured paper for the card. 

Then my “name plates” are on 2″x2″ squares.  Our logo is light in the background in green and the names are in black.  These will be glued to the front.

I have several pieces of paper with “table 1”  “table 2” and so on ready to go, so that when tables are assigned, I just have to glue the paper to the inside of the card.

I don’t have photos because they aren’t done yet, but that’s mine!

All the printing is being done by our little HP printer.
