    I have been searching for basically 2 full days for an alphabetical seating chart list template similar to this one:

     

    http://www.etsy.com/...g-chart-digital

     

    This is for our Jack and Jill bridal shower which will have about 150 guests in total. I can't see paying $50 for a template. I'm not very good with photoshop, powerpoint, publisher, etc. By not very good, I actually mean terrible/no clue...lol. 

     

    I'm about ready to shell out the $50 even though I think it's ridiculous, but figured I would check on here first. I would prefer a vertical over horizontal (like the one in the link) but I'll take what I can get. Beggers can't be choosers.

     

    If anyone has a template, or knows how I can go about this, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks so much!

      You can easily do this yourself in any document...even Word.

      Type in all the guests and put them at a table. Do something easy like Word Art for the letters. Then you can just select all and put it into columns so that it fits one page.

      Add a page border and voila!

      Take it to Kinkos and have it printed in the size you need to fit the frame.

        I could probably handle that, but the fonts in Word just look a little generic for my liking. I guess I'm too picky.

          Go online and download new fonts for free.

          OR...just create a logo for yourself that you can use on everything to brand your event. Use your names, initials or whatever. Save it as a jpeg and use on everything.

          I did one on a free website. I'll look for it and let you know. I actually created the invite on the site but then just did one with only our names and it works great on everything!

            This is the link I used. If you just play around with it

            IE; just put in your names or just enter the date etc you have a lot of options and can make a nice header for your seating chart. The site has alot of free templates too. Makes our lives MUCH easier.

            Hope it helps!

                Failed miserably...lol. I did successfully create a logo, but if I print it in a larger size it distorts. The format doesn't look great in Word either. It's not Word it's me. I'm just no good at this stuff.

                    I actually didn't save it because it just wasn't working. My heading was so big that I never would've fit the rest of it on 1 page. I ended up finding one on zazzle that was about $18 that I can just input my info into. Seems worth it in my situation...lol. Thanks for offering your help though. I appreciate it.
