The Punctilious Mr. P's Place Card Co.. Old Chatham, New York
Inspiration + Color: watery aqua blues evoked by the cool, smooth edge of glass with a variation of old masters oil paint color yellow lake.
Only 20 packets of this Collectors Edition will be made. Each unique marbled paper place card will elevate any classical or modern tablescape and give your guests a personalized keepsake they will truly cherish and remember for years!
Our collection of marbled paper place cards are not printed— they are all beautifully hand marbled in collaboration with decorative artisan and marbler Theresa Cheek. It was a collaboration made in heaven.
Marbling goes back to the 12th century and are some of the most stunning and eye-catching papers in the world. These papers are often used in book bindings to give them an elegant and elevated feel. As handmade papers, you are assured to get a truly one-of-a-kind design, and like any handcrafted or handmade paper, marbled papers are unique pieces of art on their own—MONOPRINTS— and no two pieces are ever the same!
For the holidays, our iconic packets of place cards come wrapped in cheerful 'holly berry' red grosgrain ribbon and packaged in our signature 2 piece hard-shell gift box with gold label.
Conversation Sparker: Did you know that in 1775, Benjamin Franklin provided the Congressional Congress with a special paper (marbled left border on the face) to prevent counterfeiting? This note is called Continental Currency.
