    Place Cards/Escort Cards/Seating Cards

    For clarification purposes I consider Escort or Place cards as having the guest's names and table assignment. Seating cards are name only cards that will be placed at the individual seats. I mention this in hopes to avoid confusion when discussing projects.

    • with names(s) and table name.....$ 0.75 each
    • with name only ..... $0.50 each

    Envelopes
    Please provide approximately 10 extra envelopes per 100 envelopes (10% additional). Mistakes in spelling can occur because I'm concentrating on letter formation. You will not be charged for my mistakes.
    NOTE:  If you have dark envelopes or darkly lined envelopes please provide 20% additional envelopes.  I tend to make more mistakes on these type of envelopes.
     
    Discount
    You'll receive a 10% discount on additional projects.  If I address your envelopes and write your place cards, you will receive the discount on your place card costs.

    Addresses
    Please provide a typed, finalized list of all addresses as you would like them to appear on the envelope. Below the address please have the inner names written as you would like them written. See sample below.
    Unless otherwise requested, virtually all address wording will be to the left and indented several spaces for each line.

    Sample of how address should be typed for your envelopes

    It is acceptable to use a combination of the inner envelope formats depending on your relationship with the guests.
