Escort vs. Place Cards: Escort cards include table numbers along with guest names, and place cards include just guest names. Table numbers will be added on bottom right edge of card. Please indicate card type at checkout.

Pointed pen vs monoline: Pointed pen refers to shaded script written using a traditional calligraphy holder and nib that is dipped in ink. Monoline refers to a script written with a marker or pen that has a single, consistent line weight. Monoline lettering is a budget-friendly alternative to pointed pen calligraphy.

Customization options: Lettering can be done in lowercase or title case script.

Ink Color: Base pricing covers black ink only. If you'd like metallic/custom ink, please add the ink add-on listing before checkout.

Pricing is per place/escort card and includes cost of paper.

Turnaround: The average turnaround for place cards is 1-2 weeks. As soon as you place your order, please email a spreadsheet to with guest names formatted exactly as you'd like them written on the card (all titles, spelling, etc). Include table numbers on a second column if you're ordering escort cards.
