When you hold a reception or event, being able to feature place cards generated from professionally designed place card templates makes it that much more special. Place cards add that personal touch. They make guests at your party or reception feel welcomed. And place cards also of course help to keep everything organized!
Don’t worry however if you’re not an expert in graphic design. Creating a place card from a template is an affordable and still beautiful way to mark any occasion. So even if you have absolutely no design experience of which to speak, you still have the necessary tools at your disposal. And the best part, you are not starting from scratch. A graphic design expert has already done the bulk of the work for you. Now it’s your job to customize your chosen template and enjoy the printed place cards at your convenience.
Perhaps one of the most common uses of place cards: wedding receptions. Generally speaking, you’re going to have a number of guests present for your big day. Having a seating chart and corresponding place cards can certainly help things run more smoothly. You can even accent your place card template with your wedding colors. From the font to the background, you have the ability to really make them stand out.
Other popular events where place cards truly do come in handy and add that extra special touch: graduations, dinner parties, retirement receptions, proms, and other formal functions. Again, a specifically designed place card individualized with your guests’ names goes a long way toward making those guests feel far more welcomed.
Versus strictly DIY place cards, starting with a Design Wizard developed place card template really does make easy work of your place card project. Depending on the theme of your event, you will want to choose a place card design and layout that complements it. Our library of templates offers fully customizable options so you can be sure that your place cards perfectly fit with the motif of your party.
Background for instance can be adjusted to suit the color palette of your event or reception. You might even opt to include your wedding colors as part of your place card background. The easy-to-use editing tools make it super simple to change the background of any of our templates.
You will probably also want to experiment with your place card font style. After all, the primary element of your place card is the writing. As with background and color, font should also play into the overall theme of the event. With place card fonts, it is often a good rule of thumb to go with cleaner and simpler styles. Too ornate fonts make it difficult for guests sometimes to identify even their own names. You can still have an elegant font for a wedding reception for example, without making it too difficult to read.
Once you are done designing, you have a few options as far as place card printing goes. You can always download your place card design and using card stock, print right from your home computer. There is also the choice of having a professional printing company handle the order. Design Wizard’s place card templates are sized according to standard measurements making the design and printing process that much easier.
With Design Wizard’s professionally created place card templates your dinner party or reception is sure to be a hit. And your guests will love that special touch!
