Create your place cards

Open the card design template on Avery Design & Print.
HanukkahCards_OpenTemplate
 
Look up to the Sheet Navigator, found on the right side of the screen. Change the setting from Edit All to Edit One by clicking the tab to create a personalized card for each guest. Otherwise, all the cards on the sheet will be the same.
HanukkahCards_EditOne
 
Next, click to select the first card on the sheet.
You'll notice there are two sections for each card for each side of the card. It's an equal opportunity card, so it doesn't matter which side you call the front or the back.
You can choose to design and print one, or both sides. Click each side you want to customize and enter your text.

Use the text menu on the left to change the font, text size or text color. We changed the font to "Hogarth" for its sleek, elegant look (no offense, Bubblegum Sans) and increased the size to 32.
Now, over to the flip side...

...where we entered a personal wish for everyone. Hey, not too shabby, Bubblegum Sans!
