Is it a gel? epoxy? Looks neat however they did that!

It looks laminated.  That’s an interesting idea though.

That’s a really great idea! I haven’t seen that before at all.

Hmm… all the “home” laminating I’ve ever done is definitely not water tight.  I’ve had ink smear over time as moisture seeped in.  I guess having it submerged for a few hours isn’t long enough to seep through?

to me it looks a little out of place.  i’d want to pull it out.

wait, so every single person would need an extra glass by their place setting for their name card?

I have a feeling if I tried to do that it would just look cluttered, but I have faith in your creative abilities (which are WAY higher than mine, haha).

I’m not too excited about the seating card, but I love the flower in the background!

One of my friends told me about a wedding she was at a few months ago and they actually incoporated this idea… the table numbers were actually photos of the couple (laminated) and then submerged in water like the picture. I think they put a little weight/clamp on the bottom so the picture remained upright in the water… but they used different pictures of the couple to differentiate the tables (instead of numbers)… very cool concept. I think it would work for a centerpiece, but I think there would be too much risk of spillage and work with having individual ones for each guest place setting.

Those look awesome.  How do you prevent the ink from running though?

its definitely a cool idea… i think it could work if there was more of a “concept” to it and not just a card under water. Like more of an aquatic reference or something. BUT def good to see a different approach to a place card!
