It’s no secret, the last few weeks leading up to your wedding can be surprisingly action packed! Even the most Zen personalities can find themselves overwhelmed by all the tiny details. It’s a story the wedding experts at Paper Source hear all too often. You may have booked the venue for your reception ages ago, but those last few straggling RSVPs have prevented you from completing the guest list. Before you know it your wedding is two weeks away and just thinking the words “seating chart” makes your temples throb. What to do? Where to turn?

Don’t fret! The design geniuses over at Paper Source have your back with the perfect solution to your pre-wedding woes. We are thrilled to (finally!) announce our new print-at-home folded wedding place cards! They come as 8.5 x 11 sheets with 4 place cards each in a creamy superfine soft white cover paper. Easy to use in Word, Pages, or InDesign (print templates available online) — on a Mac or a PC — these printable place cards are a cinch to punch out. Micro-perforation ensures a clean edge, and the fold line is scored for crisp, even folds and superior standing. These place cards are a perfect last-minute DIY wedding idea to add that extra touch of charm your guests will love.

Printable place cards

Quick tip for super savvy brides and grooms: These place cards easily do double duty as escort cards (as pictured). Long before your wedding, when you have ample time, print out all of your guests’ names in a decorative font but leave a blank space for their table number. When you get closer to your big day and know the seating arrangement, simply use a decorative pen or marker to write in each guest’s table number. Have all the place cards in alphabetical order on a table outside the reception along with your guest book. Watch in awe as your guests sign your guest book, pick up their place cards, and walk directly to their tables!

    Looks great! I can also use for the upcoming holidays with decorative clipart. Can you please tell me the name of the font.

    Being a graphic designer I think my priorities for my upcoming wedding are upside down. I dont worry about flowers, venue, food…I worry about invitations, envelope colors, embossing, etc. I am getting everything at the paper source for them. But they have so many beautiful colors it makes it hard for a girl to make a decision!

    So exciting! What PS color do these most closely match? I can’t find any details on the product listing.

  5. Sarah says:

    Bravo! So glad these are available now. Can’t wait to see them available in more colors.

    Vikki – the font looks like a Sudtipos font called Miss Le Gatees. They have a fabulous selection of fonts. But be careful – you can go broke if you fall in love with too many!

    Which printer would you recommend to print the placecards/invitations? I have an Epson Artisan 810, and the text quality is sub par. Any recommendations. Thanks.

  8. Bridget says:

    I am using this template to create the placecards for my wedding. I have a question about the template. Do you know how I can create this template on additional pages so that I can print all of my placecards in one document rather than deleteing names and retyping new names? Thanks!

  9. Tiffany says:

    I’m wondering the same as Bridget. The template paper-source offers is Adobe Reader but you can’t save it. Do you recommend using another program?
