Escort cards direct and escort your guest or guest(s) to their assigned table. Place cards designate an individual's assigned seat at the table.

What ink colors can you print?

We can print any color you want! You can pick a popular color from our Color Chart or we can color match to any color you want (this is considered a custom color). For a custom color, you must provide us with the Pantone or CMYK number or mail us an actual color sample (paper, ribbon, fabric, or paint swatch).  An additional cost will apply for this color matching service. Cost is per color.

It is highly recommended that you order a Sample Packet, as it will include our Color Chart.   This will allow you to see the true printed color, as colors viewed on a computer screen are not a true representation of the actual color.
