Would you pay for calligraphy for placecards?

I like the idea of putting them away for a few days and if you don't like them then...bite the bullet and buy new ones and have them done.

I hear what you're saying. I'm not sure what I'm going to do because I think deep down inside, they probably won't matter, but I'm not 100% convinced of that yet !
Considering I still have to spend $ on my BD pics (i finally found a photog I liked!), alterations, and my FI and I are purchasing a 2nd home (woo hoo!), I can't justify on spending one more dime on the darn sand dollars!
So, I think what I will do is take them with me and if I hate the way they look when all the decor is put together I'll just have them removed.
(That's what I'm saying right now, so incase I change my mind I'll advise you!!!)

And honestly, no one is really going to care about them. They are there to see you and FI get married.. not how their name is printed on a sand dollar

Nobody will see them side-by-side with your inspiration pic except for us. I think your guests will appreciate the creativity more than they'll worry about the handwriting anyway.

Buy the sand dollars again and instead of spending 90$ on them to have names on them, thread a little pretty ribbon through them, add a little tag with the guest's name and present them at the table as place cards so that they can all take them away with them and use them as ornaments when they get home!
I'm doing something similar, so I'm biased, but that way they will actually get used afterwards (in theory); I wouldn't keep a sanddollar with my name written on it.
It's a totally DIY-friendly project.
