It sounds like it took Ms. Hummbird a long time to make those. Maybe pm her for tips.

I would start by making a list of each game and its characters, and then from there start collecting high res images of those characters, game logos etc. I’m thinking you will need a designer to help you with this if you aren’t design savvy, so that all the escort cards are consistent.

CpnToad:  If you have the right editing software, a task like that shouldn’t be too tricky. I’ve done some signage and escort card stuff using Photoshop and InDesign for the wedding. However, as MsBear said, you might need to enlist someone else’s help if you aren’t as design savvy or don’t have the right tools for the job.

CpnToad:  If your Fiance uses InDesign then you’re all set, have him create a template and insert whichever character and guest name is necessary and either print on pre-made tentcards, or get them printed custom. It’s pretty cheap to have them done at Catprint for example.

CpnToad:  Ditto what MsBear said. I only had 7 to make (used escort card tents as signs to indicate dessert options), so I printed them on nice cardstock and cut and scored them myself. I used the dimensions of pre-made cards online so went with 3.5 x 2 for the front and then when I went to print, made sure it was 3.5 x 4 so that I could fold it into a tent (blank space on the top). Sounds like you have all the resources at your disposal! 🙂
