Taking the time to personalize your table with place cards is a great way to make your guests feel welcome and it’s a simple way to make the table feel a little more “fancy”.

While laminated place cards may look like they took loads of time to prepare – they only take a few minutes to make, and by laminating them, you can use them over and over again with a dry erase marker!
