Creating a Unique Image with Napkins

2 Jul

Looking for unique napkins to give as a gift or to use at a party or corporate event?  Consider printing a custom logo or artwork on a set of napkins for a very special touch. From corporate events to conferences to in-office appointments, providing your guests with printed napkins featuring artwork or a logo is the perfect opportunity to enhance or introduce a brand or create a special look at a social event.june-photo-napkins

If you have a wedding logo or custom-designed monogram, using it on a set of napkins can add a very personal touch at an engagement party, bridal shower, rehearsal dinner and/or at the wedding.  And for special celebrations like anniversary parties and 50th birthday parties, unique artwork or a photo can make a statement and set the tone for the event.  Even kid’s artwork can be printed on napkins and will make your little artist feel absolutely proud of his or her masterpiece.

Digital full-color napkins are personalized on white or ivory social-quality napkins in beverage or luncheon size with a high quality 4-color process.  Our napkins are recyclable and made & printed in the USA.

Wonderful uses for custom napkins include featuring a picture of a favorite pet, showcasing an image of a boat or rendering of a home for a one-of-a-kind housewarming gift, introducing a new business logo at a corporate event, or printing an image of someone’s painting can make a thoughtful present.   Personalized full-color napkins provide a wonderful addition to special celebrations and event planning needs.

Why Personalized Everything is So Popular

16 Jun

june-personalized-giftsOf all the niche markets, the personalized segment continues to grow annually.  From home decor to stationery to party napkins and more, personalization is key in creating the wow factor.

A fresh box of personalized stationery, an stylish address stamper or a perfectly printed box of notepads will easily become a beloved gift.  When someone takes the extra time to order something personalized, it adds something special to the gift and is usually really appreciated.  For kids, personalizing an item for them is exciting as they instantly become a rock star.  And for adults, a great monogram or name imprint on a classic gift will be surely appreciated and will become a present well used and remembered.

Never before has it been so easy to order from thousands of Gift Ideas.  From embroidery to engraving, thermography to embossing, the choices are plentiful.  Whether you are looking for birthday gifts, teacher gifts, graduation gifts or holiday gifts, there are so many choices that finding the perfect present at the right price point is simple.

Today, creating a unique look or “brand” for occasions like a wedding, anniversary party, holiday party or birthday celebration helps set the tone for the event.  Taking a special phrase, classic or custom monogram or design and having it foil-stamped on napkins, party favors, disposable drinking glasses and stir sticks can set the color theme, the style and the extra detail necessary to make the party memorable.  These are the sort of additions to a party that will create a splash with minimal investment.

For all your upcoming celebrations, take some time and look through all the options. Think about the gifts you want to give for upcoming occasions and about what the recipient might like.  Perhaps they love to entertain and a fresh set of engraved wine glasses would be enjoyed, or maybe they love to have pretty paper on their desk and a nice set of personalized post-its would be well-used.  These are the type of gifts that someone might not necessarily pick out for themselves, but would love to receive and would truly enjoy.  From gifts to party supplies, personalizing is an easy, fast and unique option.

Best wishes,

How Many Napkins Are Needed for a Party?

1 Jun

may-napkins-004We absolutely love personalized napkins!  They are an affordable way to add some panache to your party and also very useful!  If you are wondering how many napkins to order, determining the correct number of napkins to order is easy!   First consider how the napkins will be used for your event.  Napkins generally come in 4 sizes.  Beverage size (also knows as Cocktail size) are a smaller square size and used for drinks and appetizers.  Luncheon napkins are a medium square size and often used for desserts or heavy appetizers.  Dinner napkins are a large square and used for meals.  And Guest Towels are longer rectangles and used for either a meal or in the washroom.may-napkins-003

For smaller events, such as a rehearsal dinner, bridal shower, birthday party or cocktail party, you can count on using approximately 2-3 beverage size napkins for drinks and appetizers per person. For the meal, normally cloth napkins are provided by the venue or you might want to order guest towels or dinner napkins, about 1 per person is sufficient.  If you are having a sweet table selection add 1-2 cocktail or luncheon napkins per guest.

For larger more formal events such as weddings, bar/bat mitzvahs, corporate functions or fundraisers, we suggest ordering at least 3-4 beverage napkins per guest as there are generally more appetizers, bartenders generally give out a napkin with each drink.  If there are several bar stations, add an additional 1-2 napkins per person to account for supplying the bars with ample napkins.  If there will be a sweet table add 1-2 more beverage napkins per guest or luncheon napkins are nice too.  Typically outside venues will provide cloth napkins for the meal.  If there is a private washroom order 1-2 guest towels per guest.

For semi-casual parties or casual events such as a 50th birthday party, a pool party or a graduation celebration, we’d suggest ordering 2-3 beverage napkins per guest for appetizers and drinks.  If also using for desserts add 1 beverage or luncheon napkin per guest.  For the meal itself, either use cloth napkins or order 1 guest towel or dinner napkins per guest, with some extras.

For washrooms, as an extra nice accent, order guest towels for the washroom(s). If you are at an outside venue, and if you have private washrooms for your event, it’s nice to order 1-2 guest towels per person (place a few more in the ladies room than in the men’s room).  If you are planning the event in your home, place a stack of guest towels in your washroom for your guests to use.

Printed napkins are one of our favorite accents for all types of celebrations.  They set the tone, a theme, and of course, they are just so pretty!  And if you keep the imprint neutral, such as a monogram, you can certainly use any leftover napkins around the house for when guests drop by!
