Q. How many napkins should I order for my wedding?

A. When ordering wedding napkins the following guidelines are recommended to ensure you don't order too many or not enough napkins for every aspect of your reception or party.

Cocktail napkins are the most common napkin ordered for receptions and parties. These beverage size napkins measure 5 inches wide by 5 inches long and are most commonly used at the refreshment bar, hors devours table, and cake table. Because guests will make multiple trips to the cocktail bar or hors devours table, plan on ordering 2 to 3 napkins per guest.

Luncheon napkins are typically used at buffet tables and cafeteria-style breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. These napkins measure 6 1/2 inches wide by 6 1/2 inches long and are also used at the cake serving table. Luncheon napkins can be stacked or arranged at a buffet table or placed on the guest tables either folded or lying flat. Plan on ordering 1 to 2 luncheon napkins per guest when using at a buffet or cafeteria style arrangement.One napkin per guest is sufficient for the wedding cake table as most guests will be up for a slice of cake only once. When using luncheon napkins for for engagement parties, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinners, plan on order 1 to 2 napkins per guest.

Dinner napkins measure 8 1/2 inches wide by 8 1/2 inches long and are typically used for formal wedding dinners.Dinner napkins are normally folded and placed on the guest tables. Plan on ordering 1 1/2 napkins per guest for dinner tables. You'll always need a few extra napkins.

Disposable guest towels are typically used in restrooms or washrooms as a personalized hand towel for your wedding guests to dry their hands. Because of their rectangular shape, these 4 1/2 inch wide by 8 1/4 inch long paper napkins are also popular on the dinner and buffet tables. Plan on ordering 2 to 3 guest towels per person when using in bathrooms and 1 1/2 guest towels per person when using at the dinner tables or buffet.

Q.How do I view product personalization options when placing an order for personalized items?

Q. What is the difference between ink and foil imprint colors?

A. To offer the widest variety of color options for your personalized wedding and party favors, My Wedding Reception Ideas offers a variety of ink and foil imprint colors on many of our personalized products. The following descriptions will help you decide which imprint medium is best for you. If you still have questions, please give us a call at 1-800-605-3415 and one of our customer service specialists will be happy to assist you.

Ink imprint colors are applied to personalized products in liquid form. The ink is rolled onto products including napkins and gift bags. The ink is then allowed to dry before packaging and shipping. Inks create a raised finish on products like place cards, favor tags, and favor bags. Inks create a vivid color with no shine or glare. When printed on absorbent products like paper napkins, inks may bleed and fade slightly, depending upon the napkin color and texture. This 'bleed' may alter the color slightly depending upon the napkin color. It is best to choose a foil imprint color on paper products like personalized napkins.

Foil imprint colors are applied to products using a hot stamp method. The foils are impressed into each product by a hot stamping machine. Foils do not bleed or fade when applied to paper products. Foil colors are available in metallic, satin, and matte finishes. Metallic foils have a shiny texture. Metallic silver, for instance, has the look of shiny tinsel. Satin foils have a dull sheen that is noticeable when held at an angle in the light. Platinum satin, for instance, has the look of a new nickel. Matte foils have a smooth finish that does not shine.
