Various standard formats or individual special format for 4-page place cards
Perfect for galas or balls
Grand balls or galas are all about formal dress, stylish tuxedos and famous faces. They also have a long tradition of pre-determined seating plans. Place cards are thus used to assign each guest to their seat on the main table or on the banquet tables. To ensure these cards look suitably exclusive and stylish, you shouldn’t just rely on plain paper, but rather also use refinements or special colours. The print24 printing options give you the chance to perfectly tailor your place cards to your exclusive social events!
Name tags and name cards for conferences or conventions
Conventions and conferences bring together many people who have never met before. Place cards can be used as identification at conference meetings or in the event of various speeches. They are discreetly placed in front of the respective participants. At large events, place cards can also be combined with a tent card, which can, for example, be printed with the programme of events or speakers.
Also ideal for small events
With a minimum order volume of 25 place cards, we also give private customers the opportunity to print place cards for birthdays, communion, anniversaries or confirmation. Choose an attractive design and suitable colours and refinements in advance, and you can add a personal touch to your event.
When you order place cards at print24.com, they’ll always come in a 4-page design. This is the end product when the card is folded. Before printing, please make sure you pre-assemble the multi-page folded place cards.
Various standard options, or special formats upon request
We print your place cards in seven standard formats, from the smallest DIN A7 to the large and effective DIN-Long format. The latter is particularly elegant for weddings or large gala dinners. You can choose the following standard formats for your place cards:
- DIN A7 (74 x 105 mm)
- 85 x 55 mm
- 90 x 50 mm
- 100 x 210 mm
- 105 x 105 mm
- DIN-Long (105 x 210 mm)
All these options are printed in landscape format. If you choose the square 105 x 105-mm format, you’ll later be able to rotate the card as you wish. Please remember to create your place-card print file with a 2-mm bleed on each side due to be cut.
Various types of paper to choose from
You can have all our place-card formats printed on the following types of paper:
- 250 gsm Coated art paper
- 350 gsm Coated art paper
- 400 gsm Premium cardboard
- 350 gsm Offset
- 300 gsm Recycled white
Using the particularly solid 400 gsm premium cardboard will give you an elegant matte finish. When it comes to the coated art papers with grammages of 250 gsm and 350, you can choose between matte and gloss. Your place cards will be both cut and creased, and are delivered unfolded. A note about environmental protection: All print24 recycled paper has Blue Angel certification, and the coated art papers are PEFC-certified.
Get more out of your place cards: Your colour options
As a modern print shop, we can offer you the full range of printing inks. It’s up to you whether you want to simply print your cards in black, or also want to use the one of the special colours of Pantone, or even gold and silver effects. You can perfectly tailor your place cards to your event through your choice of colour scheme. Gold and silver are particularly common on place cards for weddings or birthdays. At print24.com, you can combine black, silver, gold and the classic CMYK four-colour printing with another printing process, resulting in countless possibilities! The following options are available:

Place-card refinements for more than just special occasions
When printing your place cards on 250 gsm or 350 gsm coated art paper or 350 gsm premium cardboard, you can also choose to have them laminated. This involves applying an additional coating to the paper to give the place card a unique effect. Eight other options further modify both the look and feel. Choose from the following configuration options when laminating your place cards:
- Exterior gloss
- Exterior matte
- Exterior linen finish
- Exterior soft-touch
- All sides gloss
- All sides matte
- All sides linen finish
- All sides soft-touch
When printing on 250gsm and 350 gsm coated art paper, print24 also allows you to use UV varnish, giving your place cards a non-sensitive surface, and the motifs added depth. UV varnish can be applied in both matte or gloss style.
Curious to see what your place cards will look like at the end? That’s not a problem with screenproofs and paperproofs
To preview your place cards before printing, you can choose to receive a digital screen proof or a print-out (paperproof) for a small surcharge. The proofs also have another advantage. If you’re not happy with the final product, you can cancel your order at no extra cost. In the case of screenproofs, we create a digital preview of all sides in a resolution of 150 dpi, which we store as a file in your customer account. You can then view this at your ease on your screen. Please note that screenproofs are not true-colour, so the final product may differ.
If you choose a paperproof, we’ll print out either the front and back or the entire place card for you, and post it out to you the next working day. The Fogra-certified paperproof will give you a perfect idea of what your end product will look like, and, if you like it, you can start the print order straight away.
