Very often, the reception hall will provide place cards for the event. This is great, in that it saves families time and money searching for and purchasing their own! However, there is no guarantee that the cardstock will be the same. The place cards that the banquet hall provides all look the same, but could very well have been ordered at different times, on different qualities of paper – some that bleed the ink, and some that don’t. Using these can therefore result in the ink flow varying from card to card for the same event. Only you can decide whether or not this matters.
