Order of Service Signs Size Guide
Order of Service Signs can be produced from a teeny A5 (1468x210mm) all the way to a huge A0 (841x1189mm). The most popular size is A1 (594x841mm).
The tips for working out what size seating plan you will need apply in this situation too. I.e., taking into consideration where the Order of Service sign will be sitting and how far away guests will be viewing the sign from. You may be better off organising individual Order of Service cards and having them handed out to each guest so that they can browse the information at their leisure.
