I can’t decide which version to go with for my escort cards. I really like the color ones (I designed them), but it may become a hassle to print ~60 of these and have them come out good. The color design matches our table numbers, but as I was printing those last night when I looked closely the color wasn’t as perfect as I would like. We have a pretty good and new printer, so unless I use the color lasers at work, or find somewhere to print these for me, they may not come out as perfect as I would like. But they do match best.My other option is to just use the same font and print it black.
Bees – what do you think?

If the color not being the same will really bother you (you will more then likely be the only one that notices, lol) don’t go through the headache of getting them printed elsewhere. But, if you don’t mind the color being off, then I would go for it, b/c I like them more then the bottom option.
Or, like you said, do the same design, but in black.

I really love the black and white ones. But I typically fancy simple and minimalistic designs.
Besides, if you’re worried about the color printing the same on all of them, I’d skip the hassle of the color.

It sounds like you would prefer the color ones to match your table numbers. I would either ask permission to do them at work, or get them professionally printed.

If the colour will be hard to match, could you print the first one on a gray scale?

Have you tried one of those cheap printing sites like Vistaprint? They often have pretty good deals every once in a while and print colors well.

I, personally, think the plain B&W is more elegant. If you want them in color, I would do as a PP suggested and try to order them inexpensively from an online printing site.

Thanks everyone you’re giving me lots to this about!
@CrazyCoffeeGeek: So the problem with Vistaprint is that they can’t merge in the names, so I’d have to hand-write them in,which I absolutely don’t want to do. I think I’ll probably try printing the color ones here and see how they look.
