The blackboard look is a hot trend at the moment so these chalkboard seating plans are right on point. Hand drawn and illustrated wedding signs and seating plans are beautiful, but also come with a hefty fee and design lead in time (i.e. you need to have your seating plan sorted really early!).
Digitally printing a chalkboard look is a great alternative.
Here’s an example of a seating plan that’s been printed onto photo paper and framed by the couple.
This beautiful vintage chalkboard style seating plan has a simple, elegant style. The style matches the Chalk it Up range of wedding stationery in the Be My Guest collection – and this seating plan is a beautiful addition to an elegant, vintage style of wedding reception.
Pricing includes two rounds of revisions, additional revisions are $25 per PDF proof issued.
Chalkboard seating plan for Holly and Matt’s wedding
For the evening’s events, I put together a blackboard seating plan, which also included details on the next day BBQ. The clever groom made the frame himself.
How long will my signage take?
Please order three weeks prior to when you need to receive your seating plan i.e. If you need your seating plan to be with you 2 days before your wedding, then you need to order 3 weeks and 2 days before your wedding. If you need your seating plan a week before your wedding, as you’re travelling, then you’d need to order 4 weeks before the wedding (or, be prepared to pay the urgency surcharge to get it to you in time).
As stationery for a wedding reception is a time sensitive item, the following deadlines apply, to ensure you receive wedding stationery in plenty of time (so you can relax and know you’ve got everything you need for your wedding day):
- To receive your wedding stationery before your wedding day, all information required must be received at least three weeks before you need it to arrive.
- If the information is supplied after three weeks, but before two weeks, a surcharge of $30 may be applied.
- If the information is supplied between two weeks and one week before, a surcharge of $100 will be applied. It is up to Be My Guest’s discretion whether the items will be able to be supplied if information is received after this time. Please contact us directly to see if it is possible to help in this instance.
Weddings close to holiday weekends, Easter and January weddings need to allow extra time as printing and deliveries will be held up by public holidays (printer closes late Dec to early Jan).
Any urgency fees necessary will be charged separately after your order has been received and your unique situation is considered (the timeframe, time of year, courier requirements, design requirements etc).
Purchase a printed version, either printed onto a fine/light canvas stretched onto a pine frame, or printed onto high quality paper and delivered rolled into a cardboard tube, ready for you to frame.
Please allow up to three weeks from order to delivery.
