Celebrating 100,000 place cards made with a look at the most interesting ways people use Place Card Me.
Today marks a big milestone here at Place Card Me: 100,000 place cards made!
To celebrate we thought we'd take a look back on some of the most beautiful, strangest, and most unique place cards that people have made on the site.
Place Card Me was originally intended to be used primarily for weddings, but that doesn't keep people from finding other creative uses for it!

We'd like to close with possibly our favorite cards ever made. Someone just wrote a bunch of names of different people, and for each person wrote something they loved about that person.
It warms our little heart!
