- Wedding: June 2012
My wedding is a mere 8 days away, and throughout the planning process, the one thing I couldn’t find was a good template for a seating chart poster. With 180 guests, I needed something that was straightforward, easy to follow, and easy to edit. While I found great designs on Etsy, the artists were asking $55 for a digital design and over $100 to have it printed…..I couldn’t justify spending that much on a poster, especially when I was planning on framing it anyway.
So, thanks some free vector art I found online and my limited graphic design skills, I came up with my own. It took a lot more time and effort, but the fact that I simply had to save it as a PDF file and have it printed at Office Max for $35 made it worth my while.
If any of you are in a similar lurch, I just posted a .doc template (Microsoft Word) on my blog. Please feel free to use it, but please, DO NOT use it for your own financial gain or business. It took me many hours to tweak it and I’m happy to share, but just for personal use only, please.
