Advice on Personalized Napkins

Barret @ 3:37 pm had received this comment from Suzanne Connover last week and would like to feature her advice on personalized napkins:

I love to choose personalized napkins for an event. My job as an event planner enables me to make this choice for many of my clients and I’m more than happy to do this for them. I like the two-line napkins that are available at Invitepapers (and at their other site, Giftsin24) that allow me to put the name of the event on the top line and place the date of the event on the second line. I prefer this style to the monogrammed napkins which I think are most appropriate for rehearsal dinners and wedding receptions. Please remember to order enough personalized napkins. For the events I plan, I order 5 napkins for each guest. Although this might seem like a high number, let me tell you something — I always keep a reserve of blank napkins because even with the 5-napkins-per-guest ratio, I have run out of personalized napkins and had to rely on this spare case of blank napkins.  Sometimes the catering service will bring plain napkins with them, so you might want to inquire about this as part of a “backup” plan.

Planning with Personalized Announcements

Barret @ 10:08 am

It all starts with four words. “We’re having a baby!” Then there is nine months worth of activity, excitement and nervous anticipation. One part of that excitement is announcing to your family and friends that you are having a child.

My wife and I are expecting our first child soon. When we found out we were having a child, we were so excited! We couldn’t wait to tell everyone about the news. We phoned our family and blurted out the news. Soon after we announced the news, we kept getting inundated by the question, “When is the baby due?”  So, we brainstormed ideas as to how to make our child’s due date stick in people’s minds.  After looking online, we decided that a personalized announcement card would be perfect. We chose a green card that was gender-neutral.  We saved ourselves a great deal of questions after we passed those out.  Plus, we had a nice keepsake that we put into our child’s baby book.

Then, we found out that we’re having a GIRL!!  I went crazy wanting to tell everyone. My wife wanted to make the personalized announcement in a special way because giving out the personalized baby announcement cards went so well. We searched online again and saw all the very cute, very adorable ideas and options. Since we already had picked out her name, we decided on a personalized card.  We liked the one picturing a little dear surrounded by flowers with yellow border. Under her name I put, much to my wife’s delight, “Coming soon to the Quinones Family.” We landed on another perfect little keepsake for our daughter’s baby book! Everyone to whom we gave a card was charmed, especially the grandparents. Each card we gave them is still up on their mantelpieces.

My wife loves planning parties and being the hostess.  However, she is now seven months pregnant and can’t move about all that much.  She doesn’t have much energy to go out shopping for the baby shower either, let alone getting personalized invitations. It was a lifesaver for her to go online and order the baby shower announcements, along with the personalized napkins that matched.  I suggested getting the same kind of design that we had used for the baby girl announcement.  I thought it would be simpler.  But my wife chose differently because she found a design she liked better.  It was just as easy.  She had no trouble personalizing the baby shower invitations. We chose a striped pastel pink invitation with a small pink ribbon on the card face.  My wife received a lot of phone calls saying how adorable they were.

Choosing birth announcements was simple.  It was easy, and for a few extra pennies we created a few memorable keepsakes.  We are only going to have a firstborn once. We want to make every step of the way unforgettable.  We also gave our little girl some of our memories and keepsakes to ponder for years to come. Who knows?  Maybe she’ll do the same with her child.

Personalized Thank You Cards

Barret @ 9:40 am

You had a wonderful time at the wedding. The baby shower was more than memorable and you had the time of your life at the graduation. Personalized thank you cards or notes don’t need to be incredibly long. They, just like other first rate personalized stationery; need to convey the proper message coolly and effectively. Personalized thank you notes are a polite way you express appreciation for someone’s gesture, action, or gift. A thank you note is “a gift of gratitude” that lets the other person know their actions have been appreciated. A thank you note whether purchased along with other personalized stationery or hand written will relay your heart felt response to your host or benefactor  We often go through life and don’t savor moments as well as we could. Thank you notes often remind us and everyone else of their significance.

Thank you is such a simple combination of two words, so many people forget. Some people write thank you notes all the time. For others it is not part of their personal or professional protocol. A general rule is if someone can take time to do something nice for you then you in turn can take the time to send them a thank you note. In today’s job market if you’re lucky enough to gain an interview, a thank you note or letter is a really good way of standing out among the other applicants. For business etiquette in general taking the time to send a hand written or printed thank you note says that you appreciated someone else’s time, concern and gracious action. It also gives you the opportunity to create your own “personal brand strategy” with the thank you note you send. Go to and choose from the large supply they have to offer.

Thank you notes are appropriate for any gift or occasion. They are just as varied as types of events when any personalized stationery is recommended. You can purchase personalized invitations, personalized napkins and thank you notes all at the same time. Whether you’re opting to send formal thank you notes or cards for wedding invitations or retirement announcements, has the perfect thank you note for any occasion. Appreciative souls will send thank you notes for everything from money, gifts, get well cards, dinner, donations, participation, Christmas cards, donations, hospitality and much much more. has an extensive assortment of thank you cards and notes to express sincere appreciation in many ways, tones and colors: Colored Scroll cards, classic frame, navy, red, mocha, pink and blue just to mention a few. There are signature prints, embossed, monogrammed, and specialty brand thank you notes: Tiffany Sport, Sprightly, Newcastle, and Executive cards to name a few.

Business etiquette has engendered a whole new protocol regarding thank you notes and has met that need. There are literally hundreds of types of types of products that can express thank you or recognition for all you do. Thank you for your kindness and thinking of us. Thank you for your time, your gracious attitude and please do keep me in mind for your next function, only a few reasons for sending thank you notes. Executive Tables with holders, Monogrammed Bordered Notes, Impression Notes, Banner Notes, Name Notes, Eco Friendly Anthony Pads, Circus Notes, One line and a trio of Monogrammed Wardrobe Notes are a few options to meet your business or professional demands. You will be pleasantly surprised with all the ways you can utilize personalized notes, cards, stationery and personalized napkins.

Remember how you felt after you participated in the event, isn’t that a good enough reason to return the favor. Thank you notes were meant to let your host know you had a good time, thanks for the invitation, and to keep you in mind next time when they’re sending out invitations. Good hosts like good guests and professional people in general like to see that their hard work and efforts have not been made in vain. Thank you notes simply relay the genuine message that “I appreciate you for you appreciating me.”

Personalized Napkins For Summer Celebrations

Barret @ 9:57 am

The summer holiday season is here. Memorial Day has begun the summer barbecue season; why not start yours out with a bang? Throw the perfect barbecue, luau, or party? Send out personalized invitations and make sure your personalized napkins express the same sentiment. The first summer barbecue can lead to a string of celebrations worth talking about remembering, and repeating. The right personalized napkins and accessories can make a world of difference. Summer celebrations are the perfect time to reconnect with family and friends and cultivate new relationships, mix old friends with new. That’s the focus of most celebrations and good enough reason for making a celebration unique and memorable. Nothing says it better than personalized invitations and personalized napkins, nothing, see for yourself.

While guests sit, stand, or lounge around the buffet table, grill, or table settings nothing could be finer than the scene enhanced with personalized napkins. Red, white and blue are part of the traditional color scheme.  Can you picture checkered or square table cloth patterns? Why not be bolder this season and try something less conventional, complementary shades of the same color or something bright, brilliant, and unexpected that will further set your event apart. Embossed Personalized Napkins are recommended for Memorial Day and other national celebrations. Check out for what will come in handy for the summer holiday barbecue season. Monogrammed personalized napkins are widely used and display hosts initials, name, the holiday, the year and even the theme. Invitations, personalized napkins, guest towels and place cards work well if they are coordinated but there are no rules in the game of personalized stationery and personalized napkins. The more unique presentation the better.

A buffet filled with barbecued spare ribs, burgers, chicken, hot dogs, clams, a variety of side dishes, casseroles, desserts, and a separate table or bar for beverages, both alcoholic and non alcoholic can be assembled.  Personalized napkins strategically placed in these areas will not only set the event apart from dozens of others but will be fully exploited as guests walk to and fro serving themselves or as they are directed from one phase of the meal to the next. Combine graduations, weddings, baby showers and birthdays with other summer holidays. Setting your event apart will ultimately depend on how important you make it to the guests you invite. Personalized invitations and personalized napkins will have a profound effect depending upon how you tie them in with the lives of the guests. Personalized napkins, coasters, and guest towels can go hand in hand to custom dress a celebration that will be remembered long, long after the guests are gone and the fireworks have faded.

Personalized beverage napkins are perfect for all kinds of drinks; will you be serving cocktails before you eat as the guests arrive? You could have a bar that serves everything from soft drinks and juices to lemonade and ginger ale. Your personalized napkins may be just as creative as your offerings. Whether you’re offering a full choice of cocktails, wine coolers,  spritzers, rum and Coke,  champagne, non alcoholic options or other mixed drinks your brand of personalized napkins will set your event apart. A unique idea for personalized beverage napkins I recently came across uses a simple logo like a rose, a butterfly, or   American Flag. The host’s initials are dotted underneath it along with July 4, 2010 or whatever date you’re going to use. Preparing well in advance for the season with personalized napkins will be significant reminders of how the event ran its course.

Make your summer celebration memorable.  A little planning can go a long way. Any type or combination of personalized napkins will turn your celebration into an unforgettable event. Luncheon and dinner napkins are larger and thicker than beverage, specially ordered and embossed with initials, dates, and memorable phrases, logo, or images to create a uniquely individual statement for your barbecue or celebration. Four lines of custom print can provide a uniquely personal touch. As with most personalized napkins they can become unique keepsakes that can be added to scrap books or memory albums providing links to the summer that was and summers that will be. If you plan ahead and pay attention to details you’ll create an event with little things people find worth remembering. has 48 items listed under personalized napkins in unique colors like Lavender, Apple Red, Sage, Candy Pink, Magenta Purple, French Lilac and many more.  If you are going to take the time to invite guests it makes sense to make the time to prepare to meet their expectations and allow time to make changes if needed.

Golf themed retirement parties are gaining popularity, along with sailing boating and fishing.   Retirement announcement cards introduce you to the idea, mood, and activity. Order your personalized napkins at the same time you get your retirement announcements. They often focus on activities you may have more time for once your work life is complete.  They could also focus on what you do well, what people at the company will remember you for. A general rule for retirement announcements is to deliver the message of how you’d like to be celebrated and remembered. has a variety of personalized stationery that covers as retirement announcements.  Personalized announcement cards generally have six lines for a print message and color designed envelopes. Start the first line with a simple invitation, a joke, a wry comment about the guest of honor or however you’d like to lead the ceremony. Retirement announcements list the guest of honor, venue, date, time, the high point of the evening and theme. With the first thought, first initial contact you would have your guests recalling special moments from your career and the company’s.

Personalized Napkins for Summer Events

Barret @ 11:24 am

Ok, summer is here!  Fourth of July, picnics, cookouts, and other such fun events fill the summer days with laughter and enjoyment.  Planning for these parties and events can be a bit daunting, but it also can be fun!  Among all the parties that your guests may attend over the summer, you will want to set your party or event apart from the other festivities.   One easy way of making your party special is with personalized napkins.

Now is a good time to think about the theme of your upcoming event.  Personalized napkins can bring out the extra touches of that theme.  Some people are not aware of the options that are available to them, and so they go with the standard monogram or name of the event.  However, with a little insight you can put forth an idea or concept that will be appreciated by all and forgotten by few.

Picking out the napkins can be fun and are very easy to design. You can have personalized napkins with an elegant monogram, a funny phrase, or a family crest that your guests will certainly remember. For instance you might consider a picture of fireworks blasting in the air, the American Flag, or the Statue of Liberty for an upcoming Fourth of July party. You might have a deck of cards or a pair of Ace’s showing for a poker party.  You might even consider using your company logo for your company picnic. Whatever the occasion, personalized napkins are just perfect for such an event.

You might say to yourself that people won’t notice the napkins.  However, compared to regular napkins, personalized napkins are proven icebreakers. Picture the difference: Your guests sit down for the meal.  They either see just the food you have lovingly prepared, or they also notice everything tying the theme together: the food, the decorations, and especially the embossed napkins. You have carefully planned the theme ahead of time, and there is an immediate response to your specially designed napkins, an instant conversation starter.  That conversation will surely revolve around the theme of the event, thanks to the personalized napkins.

You might think that the cost for personalized napkins may be exorbitant but not so.  They are very affordable and can make an ordinary dinner into something really special.  And they are so easy to design!  Make it novel, make it special, make it funny, but most of all make it important to all the guests, including yourself.  At the end of it all, you are planning an event for your guests.  Aren’t your guests worth the simple effort of picking out something that will make them smile?
