Customised Wedding Placecards
Placecards are used to help your guests find their seat at your wedding reception. All our placecards are designed, printed and shipped from Mosgiel, 20 minutes south of Dunedin, NZ. Check out our wedding stationery timeline for when you should order your placecards and other stationery items.
Each order receives personal attention to the design, with tweaks and colour changes made to suit you. Each place card is double checked and tweaked to ensure longer guest names fit! You receive an electronic draft mockup of your placenames before they go to print – so you can see how everything looks, check guest name spellings and request any changes. More information on providing guest names for the placecards here.
Printed Placenames: Size Guide
We have a range of different types of place cards to suit:
Measuring 90x55mm (the size of a typical business card). These cards are a simple, straightforward place card option.
Flat Placecards with Holepunch
These are also 90 x 55mm in size, but with the addition of a hole (in the centre left, or in any other position by request). Tie these to a bottle or wedding favour.
Long Tag Place cards
The long tag place cards are 70x35mm with a hole punch at the end. You can use these to embellish your wedding favours and sit each of them at their table.
Small Folded Place Cards
Our small folded placecards are a folded piece of card that sits up, making it easy to find individual seats. The card is 90x55mm when unfolded, so the space available for the guest name is 55mm wide (45mm high).
Folded Place Cards
Our standard folded placecards are 105 x 74mm when unfolded, so each panel is 52mm high by 74mm wide. This bit of extra space gives room for names to be printed larger.
Shaped tags are 50mm long by 36mm wide. These pretty tags are a great embellishment for wedding favours.
Measuring 50x50mm, these square tags are a simple option for marking their place at the table.
As lovers of stationery, we also have lots of pretty accessories available
- Opt to attach your tag-style placecards to larger pieces with eyelets or Teardrop Paperclips (in black, silver, rose gold or gold).
- Wedding Menus (like pictured above) provide every last mouth-watering detail of the meal
- Wine Labels to personalise the bottles of wine on your tables
- Vow Books and Guestbooks for special keepsakes, paired with luxe Rose Gold Pens and Black Pens
- “Congratulations” cards and giftwrapping for stress-free, thoughtful gift-giving.
Wedding Placename Card Choices
All our placenames come printed on your choice of cardstock with a weight of 300gsm.
If you have purchased wedding stationery through Be My Guest, you should pick the same card to match the rest of your stationery pieces. Order the wedding invitation sample pack for physical swatches of the card options on offer:
I like this design but I want to change colours/customise it, can I?
Yes! Changes to the colours, layout and wording of your placecards is not an issue. One of our designers will be in touch with a draft before it gets printed (within a couple of working days of your order). As these are customised to suit, there is a minimum order of 40 placecards required.
