Personalising your placemats
Handy Tip: The placemat is your canvas so go as mad or as mellow as you like! The edges are hemmed which means only a fraction of your design will be lost, so try to keep main features of your photo away from the hem areas.
Print a placemat for each family member, featuring their face and name. This will put an end to any disagreements over who sits where! You could even go down the star sign route and print each fabric tablemat with everybody’s individual sign and characteristics. For families with duplicate signs, customise it to the person, so Dad and Son, or His and Her.
For unique wedding favours, personalise these gorgeous fabric placemats with your guests’ names and a thank you for helping to make the day extra special. To customise it even more, feature a monogram of you and your partner’s initials, keeping it in line with your wedding colour scheme. Because they are easily folded, they’ll fit into most handbags so guests don’t need to worry about carrying round an extravagant favour.
The imagination of a child is something beautiful, so encourage creativity and learning even at the table by designing a fun game to print on your custom fabric placemat. For fussy eaters, this could turn dinner time dramas into tea time triumphs!
When the festive season is near, these make great personalised Christmas placemats. Choose a traditional nativity scene – perhaps a photo from your child’s school play – or create a set, each one printed with a different image relating to the holiday season, i.e. snowman, elves, Christmas pudding, drummer boys etc. And because they’re easy to clean, it doesn’t matter if a little cranberry sauce tries to escape your plate!
