For most formal sit-down meals, place cards are a must, and a wedding reception is usually such an occasion.
In many cases the reception venue will provide menus and perhaps even a seating plan, but you will usually need to organise place cards yourselves. Choose blank or printed – see options below.

Option 1: DIY Blank cards

The “Classic” ones (with borders) are our own exclusive range, available in ivory, white and cream and cost 80c each blank. They’re also available in white with a silver or gold foiled border or cream with a gold border. These are pictured: front right – ivory embossed, centre – cream/gold, centre right – cream embossed, back 2nd from left – white/silver, back 2nd from right – white/gold, back right white embossed.

You can also have a plain tent-style card (pictured on the left – front to back: ivory, cream, white). They are available in matte, pearlised and textured finishes in many different colours. Plain cards (without borders) cost around 50c each, depending on the stock, or you can buy them in packs of 25 to save even more.

For printed place cards, see below.

Option 2: Printed place cards

printed place cards for Sydney weddingsWe can print the names and even an extra flourish or small image on your place cards. All you do is select the colour and style of place card you’d like (Classic 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 place cards is around $1.10 each for the plain ones, $1.50 each for the ones with foiled or embossed borders, but is dependent on quantity. Expect to pay more for small numbers (minimum 20) because there is a built-in print set-up fee, which applies regardless of quantity.
