Using an Arch Shape for a Classic Wedding Style


Envisioning a timeless wedding style? Having your celebration in a ballroom or historic venue? Consider incorporating the trending arch shape with a monochromatic color palette and a font that speaks to the style. Greenery in your florals also always looks fabulous with this setup! You can either stand your table number up next to your centerpiece or place on a small gold tabletop easel for the ultimate classic look.

On CraftCuts' website, select white acrylic/plastic arch shapes and choose a metallic hue (like gold) for the vinyl lettering. All custom vinyl includes transfer tape for perfect application to your table numbers. Just peel and stick! No fuss, no weeding, no last minute craft store visits. This is the literally the easiest kind of DIY ever, especially if you don't have the time or space to use a Cricut or electronic cutting machine at home. It's not needed when you can get this ready-made vinyl delivered right to your doorstep!

And after the wedding, our favorite part about using vinyl is that you can also peel off the stickers and reuse these table numbers for home signage, gifts, and more!

Using an Arch Shape for a Boho Wedding Style


Getting married under a forest of stars or with the sand between your toes on the beach? Boho dreams go perfectly with the arch shape in any size or color, and we especially love the natural grain of wood. This kind of neutral complements any other color that you may introduce into your wedding theme.

On CraftCuts’ website, select an unpainted wood arch shape and an unpainted wood number and add on "hanging strips" to your order so the numbers are ready to be adhered to your arch shape to give that lovely dimensional look. You'll need to trim the hanging strips to the width of your numbers. After a few snips, peel off the backings and attach! These are freestanding display signs, so no other accessories needed to complete your guests' tables.

We recommend painting your number in a color that matches your wedding party’s attire or your centerpieces. If you're undecided or prefer the colors to stay with your florals, white or unpainted numbers also goes very well with the whole neutral boho vibe. With wood materials, there's also no waste, making it a very eco-friendly wedding detail! Either resell your numbers after the big day, donate to your local thrift shop, or even use as firewood. These table numbers will always be upcyclable.

Using an Arch Shape for a Modern Wedding Style


Having an art gallery or museum wedding or just really love bold colors? Modern themes are right up your alley, and the arch shape is literal perfection since there are so many ways you can personalize it to your wedding!

Pantone’s 2023 color of the year "Viva Magenta" was our inspiration when putting together this modern style for our table numbers made by CraftCuts. When selecting birch plywood for your table number, you get the option to have it painted for you by CraftCuts. There are 35 colors to choose from, so yet again, another no fuss, no mess, and all yes kind of idea to help your wedding prep be super easy breezy!

We especially loved the painted arches with a crisp white acrylic number adhered onto it. Acrylic numbers arrive with an adhesive backing already on it, so peel off and stick for minimal work and maximum visual impact.

Tips on Creating Your Own Table Numbers


Our sizes, materials, font, and color choices are found under the Materials list above, but if you decide to go another route to match your style better, these top tips will make sure your reception signage is perfect when displayed.

Make your table numbers the thickest available if you’re wanting freestanding signs. If you’re wanting them to be supported by another material (like displayed on a mini tabletop easel or stand), you can make yours thinner with a lighter material, of course! Just keep in mind physics is at play no matter which setup you choose.

Make your actual numbers large enough to be seen from a distance. At the end of the day, while gorgeous, these signs are meant to communicate where your guests are seated. This can mean painting your number a contrasting color or just sizing up.

Make your table numbers proportionate to your table size and centerpieces. There is such a thing as too big and too small for wedding reception tables! Balance out your signs with what’s on the table. For a 60-inch and 72-inch round table, a table number no taller than 7” would look best. Equally important, any smaller of a sign might make your numbers not visible at a distance.
