Here’s my plan.
I’ll take a number of our engagement photos (as many as there are tables) and assign each photo a number using Photoshop as seen in the photo below.
I’ll then affix the photo to a piece of cardboard just an inch or two large on all four sides than the photo itself. The cardboard will be wrapped in damask wrapping paper.
My question is, do you think people will notice the table # on the engagement photo? It will be “raised” above everything else on the table as it’ll be sticking out above the flowers in our centerpieces…

I think maybe using the numeral instead of the word may help…
And I know it would cover the image some, but what if it was really large and centered (and maybe semi-translucent). The picture would then become the backdrop instead of the focus

Great idea for your table numbers! I agree with lefeymw. I think making them numeral instead of spelled out will make the numbers more obvious. Also agree on making the picture the backdrop to the number instead of the focus. 🙂

Very cute! I was so busy looking at the amazing picture that I didnt really notice the number. You might move the lettering to the bottom left corner. Its gonna pop more against the dark color of the carpet. Also, if you’re using Photoshop you can do a drop shadow or inner glow on the lettering. This makes them stand out more.
Also, I would add a numeric 1- maybe in the top right corner. Some people dont really read words, but they might notice the number more.

So do you guys mean “Table 1” or just the number “1” ? I was going to do numbers 1-9 written out (like one, two, three, etc to nine) and then start doing “10, 11, 12” for all the numbers afterwards mainly because that’s “CP style” writing which I am used to using at work lol. But I’ll have to see what it looks like with the #s instead!
@JenniferEver: Thanks for the compliment 🙂 Our photographer is amazing!

I think if you replaced “table 1” with a large “1” in black it would be much more noticeable

@ChantelleyLace: I would do just the number- and a large one. No table (to me that is redundany and obvious and is unnecessary on this because the picture is so great, why cover up more of it)

You could always lower the text and indent slightly as it looks like it is a bit far to the edge. If the pictures are in little frames the current positioning could be dwarfed or obscured by the frame. Moving it slightly could alleviate that.
I also like the suggestion of simply using numerical figures.

Have you thought of using the photo on the escort cards, so that guests are not only looking for the number but the picture as well?

Yes, I think everyone will notice b/c they are going to be looking for it. It will be obvious that there is writing on the photos. Great idea!
