Party Signs: A Simple Idea to Cheer Up Your Guests

Photographing striking and special moments is a great way to perpetuate facts and feelings present at the instant of the photo and build a palpable and unique reminder of the framed moment.

For this reason, the practice of recording in life's most important celebrations (birthdays, weddings, births, graduations) is very common, in which family, friends and other loved ones are gathered because of a special event.

One of the tactics for making records even more fun and spontaneous and even sweeter memories is to invest in accessories and photo tags. The idea has been gaining popularity in celebrations and creativity rolls loose in the choice of accessories or phrases and models of plaques.


Here are tips and inspirations for choosing amazing little signs to liven up your party. In addition to ready-to-buy or print templates and various tutorials for you to create your own.

Fun little signs for yourself to print and make

The model

The first step in producing the nameplates is to choose their designs. You can find ready-made templates online, but there is also the option to create custom templates for your party.

You have to choose the shape of the nameplate, speech and thought bubbles and arrows are common models. After defining the format it is time to define the colors and font to use, ie the design of the board as a whole.

It is important to consider the occasion and the color palette adopted in it, as well as your personal taste and the visibility of the image or phrase contained on the plate, after all there is no use defining a layout that will not be apparent in the photos.


If the plate represents any specific shape (mustaches, mouths, smiley faces) it will correspond to the contents of the plate. When the intention is to add phrases to the plate, you need to think about the content that will be allocated on each plate (in this same article you will find 60 suggestions of phrases to "fill" yours).

You can create your little plates through different editing programs (Photoshop, Photoscape, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Power Point, among others), just choose the one you prefer and define the steps mentioned above (format, design and content).

The paper

The choice of paper is very important because it greatly influences the quality of the plate. It is recommended to invest in a thicker paper with a weight between 120g and 200g, so your plate will be more resistant and well finished.

Some paper options that offer a good result at an affordable price include:

  • Sulphite paper
  • Couche paper
  • Canson paper
  • Paper card

The difference between the papers mentioned is just the texture and the price, the factor that most influences the final result of the plate is the weight. It is important to remember that paper thickness also affects printing, as some thicker paper does not run on standard printers (the ones we have at home), so if you invest in thicker paper you need to get a print shop.

The size

One other thing that makes a difference in the final result and the type of print is the size of the plates. It is important to invest in medium to large size plates so that they appear well in photos. A good base is to invest in widths greater than or equal to 20 cm, as well as A4 sized images.

The impression

As has been said, the type of print is influenced by the choice of paper and the size of the image. Consult your printer's manual to confirm the paper weight range it supports, as in addition to the possibility of paper jamming in the middle of the printing process, there is a chance that the image might be misconfigured.

If you do not have a printer at home or would rather not risk it, take your nameplates to be printed in a print shop. To add an even more special touch to your plates, invest in finishes such as lamination and varnish, which can add matte, glossy or texture effects, and make the printed material stronger.

The firmness

After choosing the model of your plate and printing it, we will go to the assembly and finishing part of them.

In addition to investing in a thicker paper to make your plate more beautiful and sturdy, you need to give it more firmness to ensure that it will last the entire party.

This can be done by adding a sturdier base to the back of the board. Cardboard, parana paper, E.V.A., Styrofoam, feather paper? Just choose the one you prefer, fix the printed design on the firmest base (remembering to use a suitable glue to the chosen paper) and cut the excess paper from the edges.

The support

Once you have your plate firm and sturdy, just decide how your guests will hold them, because, depending on the mode you set, the process can take one more step: fixing the stand.

It is possible to create brackets with wooden sticks or plastic straws. To fix them the use of hot glue is indicated. You can also add a personal touch to the holder by decorating it with colored tape, paint or glitter.

Essential materials

To produce your nameplates you will essentially need good scissors or stylus, glue (the type depends on the nameplate model you choose) and paper of different types, again according to the model in production.
