We asked ourselves a simple question: "Why does a place card have to be plain & white?" Our answer... "It doesn't."
Discover a new brand revolutionizing the place card. In today’s hectic-digital-virtual world, sitting together to a meal with friends and family is truly a celebration. And what better way to add flair to the theater of the table than with place cards. Unable to find something more enticing than a white place card, or a folded white card, Mr. P invented the illustrated place card—a place card with a beautiful ‘curio’ image printed on the face with the option of complimentary digital calligraphy on the back.
