Escort cards

Escort cards show the name/number of the table a guest is seated at. An escort card is usually inside a small envelope with the guest's name written on the outside. You can also use a blank business card and write the name on one side and the table number on the other. Escort cards are very common in the USA. Whether you prefer a seating chart or escort cards is a matter of personal preference. Escort cards have the advantage that they can be changed up to the last minute, whereas a seating chart may need to be printed days or weeks in advance.

Escort cards can be as artistic or as plain as you like. If you choose an artistic font for your seating chart or cards (e.g. script or gothic), make sure it is readable by all your guests.

Escort cards are normally placed on a table, in alphabetical order, at the entrance to the venue.
