Wedding place cards are extremely important at the reception, not only for your guests but for the venue waitstaff and caterers. In many cases the reception venue will provide menus and perhaps even a seating plan, but you will usually need to organise wedding place cards yourselves.

Choose blank or printed – see options below.

Option 1: DIY blank place cards

place cardsYou can buy these simple, elegant place cards blank from our office in North Sydney.

The “Classic” ones (with foiled borders) are our own exclusive range, and cost 90c each blank, while stocks last! Unfortunately, once they’re gone, we cannot get more. They’re available in white with silver foil, cream with gold foil or ivory with a pearl foil border. Shown here: ivory embossed (sorry, this is now discontinued), white with silver foil.

Plain tent-style place cards (without borders) are also available in matte and textured finishes for 60c each.

For printed wedding place cards, see below.

Option 2: Printed place cards

We can print the names and even an extra small image on your wedding place cards. All you do is select the colour and style of place card you’d like: Classic (the ones with the foil borders) – or plain, choose a font for the names to be printed in – we can send you some to choose from – and provide us with your guest list. It usually only takes a day or two, depending on our production schedule. We’ll always send you a proof with a sample name first, so you can check how it looks.

You can put your guests’ full names on the place cards, or just their first names. For people with the same first name, you can differentiate them by adding the initial of their surname if you wish, but this isn’t really necessary unless they’re sitting at the same table.

Average price for printed wedding place cards is around $1.40 each for the plain ones, $1.90 each for the ones with foil borders, but is dependent on quantity. For most orders we produce around 100 place cards at a time. Expect to pay more for small numbers – and note the minimum is 20 – because there is a print set-up fee ($15 for names only, $20 for names and graphics / logos etc), which applies regardless of quantity.
