Hi, Does anyone know of a place where I can order cupcake description cards for my cupcakes, you know the little sign that cupcakeries sometimes have with the specail name of the cupcake and small description of the flavors? I have been searching but haven't found anywhere that does something like this. Thank you for your help.

We made our own using business cards (they come in a variety of colors, themes) from Staples. Then you can use your computer to make your own labels, complete with description. Then we laminated them. It's nice because you can always add another flavor and you can change the labels around the seasons/holidays.

We made our own too. If you have a computer, a printer and some card stock you are good to go.

That's totally a DIY project.

I use placecards that stand up by themselves like you would use for a wedding. They work great!

We just used Microsoft Word, you can use the text box tool or just input the text directly in the Word document. Powerpoint would also work.

You can then print out the document on heavy card stock and cut out each placecard. A paper cutter and scorer like this would help make precise cuts and scores for folding:

Like everyone is saying DIY. I use Print Shop Deluxe 23. Absolutely love that program. And it is super cheap too.

I know this wonderful lady who is a genius at calligraphy - and cheap too! pm me if you would like her contact information. Once you have the words, you can reproduce them yourself 1000 times over. And if you want interesting fonts, google fonts and you can download free fonts from many sites! I like power point myself. However, since I own both, I prefer my Mac because "Once you go Mac, you never go back!" icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif They have the best program for stuff like this!
