When it comes to wedding planning, I’m all about opportunities to save a few bucks. In other words, if it’s something that I can make, rather than buy, the odds are good that I’m going to give it a try.
That’s exactly what happened when I was searching online for gold foil placecards, recently.
In my mind, guests will enter the reception and find their placecard – organized alphabetically on a table – to locate their table.
I’ve been loving all of the gold-foil options on Minted.com, but good Lord, the cost adds up quickly.
Instead, I crafted a simple placecard template using a faux gold foil look that printed out beautifully on cardstock and creates a larger, more luxurious feeling card than those sold at the craft or office store.
I’m pleased with how they’ve turned out, and I can’t wait to start printing out the finals (just waiting on the envelope tool that I’ve ordered for the cleanest, sharpest folds!). I’ll post more – or better – photos once it arrives!
If you’re interested in doing the same, I’ve listed my template in the Etsy shop for a cool $5. You simply download the PDF or Word file, type in four names and/or table numbers per sheet, and hit print. Voila! Beautiful place cards for your next event, and all of those afterward, since you can use this as often and whenever you’d like (think: Thanksgiving dinners, NYE soirees, corporate events).
