INSTRUCTIONS FOR PRINTING AT HOME

USING REGULAR PAPER

  1. CHOOSE YOUR PAPER


    We recommend using a 110lb heavy weight white card stock.


  2. EDIT YOUR TEMPLATE


    Use the template marked as “full page”. This file is specifically set up to print multiple place cards on one 8.5" x 11" paper. The bleed and trim marks are there to help you achieve a perfect cut after printing.

  4. CHOOSE THE BEST PRINTER SETTINGS


    Ensure your setting is set to your highest printing setting to ensure the best quality print your printer can print.

    - Set to “Scale 100%".
