Place cards can be made easily on a computer using Microsoft Publisher. They can also be made using a the more commonly available Microsoft Word.
The process for making place cards is easiest in Microsoft Publisher due to the templates already provided. Start by opening up the application and downloading the photo address label template. This template provides several small labels with a diverse selection of colors. Simply change the names on each individual label to the names of the guests for the place cards. Add small pictures or extra pages of labels if necessary. Print out the labels, cut them out and place them on the table for guests.
Place cards can also be made through Microsoft Word. Start by launching Word and clicking on the File tab. Select New and click on the Cards button. Double click the Name and place cards folder icon to sift through template designs. It is a good idea to pick a template with about eight to 10 place cards per page. After selecting the template, add text boxes to each individual card on the page. Write whatever information is required in these text boxes for the guests and add pictures if necessary. Print out these cards, cut them out and place them on tables for guests.
