Create place cards yourself

Individual place cards from ifolor photo products for your next party

Whether for a large celebration with many guests or a small get-together just with family or friends - place cards are as useful as they are decorative, and add a personal touch to your table decoration. Your guests will not only find their place quickly, but also feel welcomed with a personal touch.

We show you how to make your place cards yourself and how to design them in a particularly creative way.

Design folded greeting cards as creative place cards

Design folded greeting cards as creative place cards

A small folded stand with the name of the guest on it - the classic among place cards. You can create landscape place cards from ifolor's folded photo greeting cards and add your own individual touch. Design a single folded greeting card for each guest with a photo of them and their name on it. You can address each guest personally and relive a memory together. If you have a large number of guests, the set of 10 folded cards is perfect. Design it with images and matching text or simply add the title of the party and write the names of your guest’s underneath by hand.

Design modern place cards from square and retro photos

Modern look: Square and Retro Prints

Square photos and retro photos are in trend and versatile too. Use them for modern place cards by ordering photos of your guests as square or retro-style prints. Let the photos speak for themselves or use family photos or photos of you and your friends and write their names on by hand. The Retro Prints have the perfect place for your caption on the bottom border strip. Lay the place cards on your guest’s places or use small photo holders to place the photos.


With free photo editing programs such as you can add the names of your guests directly to your photos and have your creative place cards printed with the edited images.

Original look: Photo coasters and photo mugs as place cards

A creative place card and a small gift for guests at the same time! Design the ifolor photo coasters or photo mugs as original two-in-one place cards for your party.


Design photo coasters as place cards

You can order the trendy personalised coasters in sets of 4 or 8 - ideal for small parties. For more guests, simply order several sets. You can design the square coasters individually creating an individual coaster with a photo for each guest. After the party, your guests can take their place cards home with them as practical gifts.

Design photo coasters as original place cards

The coated photo coasters are also great as reusable place cards. Create a generic design, for example, use summery photos for your garden party. With wipeable pens like whiteboard markers or chalk pens, you can write the names of your guests on the coasters, then simply wipe them off and keep them for the next party.

Photo mugs as creative place cards

Use the wide range of design templates to turn the ifolor personalised mugs into original ‘place cards’. You can insert a single photo of yourself and your guest or create a colourful collage of shared memories to suit the occasion. Some templates also contain text placeholders in which you can enter the names of your guests in any font and colour.
