How do I select a Personalized Napkin?

26 May

Napkins for All OccasionsIf you are planning an upcoming event, a popular addition to your party supplies will be personalized napkins.  There are many styles, colors, and materials of napkins and while the selection is large, choosing can actually be very easy. Selections have been carefully curated to provide ideas and styles appropriate to your event.

To begin, select consider the theme of your event and how you will be using the napkins.  Next, determine the style napkin you like.  We offer everything from our party-quality 3-ply napkins to a number of luxury napkin styles including masslinn napkins made of 100% rayon fibers, air-laid and patterned napkins by Caspari, luxurious DeVille napkins with a linen-texture finish, embossed Carte napkins that are strikingly beautiful, thicker linen-like printed napkins and more.  All these choices offer quality and style.  But you may visually like one over another as they offer different finishes, colors and styles, some more elegant, some more basic, but all personalized perfectly.

Generally napkins come in 4 sizes (beverage, luncheon, dinner and guest towel).  Beverage size is for cocktails & appetizers.  Luncheon is for heavier appetizers or desserts.  Dinner size is for meals.  And guest towels can be for meals or for washrooms.  You will select a size and a style when you view your napkins online.  Browse by the type of event you are planning (such as a cocktail party, Halloween party, baby shower or wedding).

When it comes to your imprint, there is no right or wrong but we would suggest that you stick to something appropriate to your event.  Perhaps you want a happy birthday message or an happy anniversary sentiment, a formal wedding imprint including the wedding couple’s name, or maybe just a monogram for a great classic statement.    There are casual fonts and formal fonts, logos to provide accent artwork, photo napkins for a personal touch, or modern or traditional monogram.

Once you make a selection, utilize the proofing tool and add your own text to see how it will look.  You will be able to select color options for many of the napkins to generate the perfect look for your celebration.  When selecting personalization colors, generally darker imprint colors work well on lighter napkins.  And lighter imprint colors work well on darker napkins. The color of your napkins can be an accent to the event’s theme, such as black & orange for Halloween or gold for a 50th wedding anniversary, or perhaps you simply want to select napkins that are classic sophisticated accents such as navy, black or ivory.

If you are planning a larger event it’s fun to mix colors such as navy & ivory, or hot pink & lime.  But if you do mix colors, consider keeping the same imprint color on all the napkins.  For example, if you select hot pink & lime napkins, perhaps imprint them all in white.  They will all tie in together if one element stays the same.   Or, another option is to select the same napkin color and then imprint in different colors – for instance all white napkins but imprint some in orange, some in hot pink and some in turquoise, as an example.

Enjoy your upcoming event and happy party planning!

Best wishes,
