Collins Pre-Orders - Managing Your Place Cards

Place cards can be printed off from your Diary or Run sheet page. For any booking that has Pre-orders added, with a 'Name(s)' associated to the order (either entered manually by one of the team or via our Collins Pre Order System), Collins will automatically create Place cards.


Go to the Diary page or Runsheet for the relevant date and then click 'DOWNLOAD/PRINT' > Place Cards:

Once you click on the Place Cards button, you have the option of choosing all bookings or just a select few to print off.

You can then include just the names of your guests on your place cards or include their pre-orders (from starter to dessert), so they appear under the name.


The Place cards can be downloaded directly into PDF form or as an Excel spreadsheet where you can customise the Place cards to your liking.

Please note that the recommended paper to print these off on can be found below:

When printing from PDF form - to ensure the place cards fit perfectly onto the paper we don’t allow you to add your logo to the place cards within Collins as the different sizes may mess up the paper matching from Collins to the printer. We recommend setting up your own template with 6 logos on in the correct place cards then printing these first then put the paper back into the printer to print the place cards.

Print Settings - When printing your place cards, please do ensure to set the Scale to 'default' to ensure the place cards correctly fit the paper.
