Handwritten place cards

When done right, place cards can make all the difference to your set table. They add a personal touch, showing your guests you’ve put thought into every detail. They can admire their names written in traditional or modern calligraphy, and many will keep it as a momento to keep forever.

My handwritten place cards come in a range of colour and materials. Personally, I love place cards that add a pop of colour to the table, or those that double up as favours (for example, if they are written on slate, or perspex, or even coasters!).


Place cards can be made to your exact specification – colour, material, style and ink colour


Who says place cards have to be card? Other materials like perspex, agate, slate and even leaves can work too and really add a uniqueness to your setting.


All of my place cards are handwritten – no printing here. This means no two names are alike, a truly personalised service


Why not combine a place names and favour? By creating a coaster, luggage label or anything else for guests to take away.
