Are you looking for something a little different for your event stationery? Caricatures are a fun way to let your guests know where they should be seated and provide an ice breaker!
We provide personalised caricature seating plans, guest books and place cards which your guests can then take away as special momentos/favours from the event. You simply upload photos of your and your guests and we'll complete and deliver the stationery before the event.

Caricature Place Cards/ Wedding favours
"To say the caricatures went down amazingly yesterday would be an understatement. Everybody was talking about them and so many people told us that they were the best favours they'd ever seen at a wedding! Even the venue said that they'd never seen that idea and they loved it!"

Invitations & Greeting cards
"Exceptional work done by the team at MKCaricatures turning around our order on very short notice and yet with excellent quality. The guests were thrilled at the work and apparently many of these caricatures are on people's mantlepieces at home. Really good work; the compliments are still coming in on how innovative this idea was for the wedding. Thanks to the team for helping to make the wedding reception special."
