Clients are asking about eco-friendly ideas, and even more so the venues are boasting about what they do to be environmentally friendly.

The San Diego Based Graphics Company Canyon Graphics is announcing the availability of its new Pic Plates to event planners and wedding planners looking for unique party supplies. Not long ago, Canyon Graphics took an interest in applications for in-mold decoration and labeling processes. As a result, they started printing full color digital photos onto high quality, plastic plates. Imagine an event where guests walk in, sit down at a table, and who is staring up at them from their plate? The guest of honor, or bride and groom, and maybe the image is complimentary and dignified - or maybe it's comic and cartoonish.

Here are some useful tips from Joel Kaye, a professional event planner and vice president with Hospitality Performance Network on how to use Pic Plates to create a memorable occasion.

Tip 1: Table Decorations

It's this type of personalized product that excites Kaye because it includes an element of surprise, serves as an ice-breaker, and keeps the conversation going when brought home. For corporate events there is also the opportunity to create a lasting impression with logos and product photos.

Tip 2: Conversation pieces

Personalizing an event is vital for companies that must "top" last year's gala. Give-aways - humorous or serious - are a great way to get the conversation going.

Guests can have a lot of fun with a photo of a CEO transposed to another figure. The plate images can poke fun at the serious nature of their work or even "roast" a top achiever or executive, all within the bounds of good taste.

Tip 3: Fun, Fun, Fun

A must-have party product - at a reunion, birthday party or baby shower - can make a game or contest sparkle.

To keep the buzz going long after the cake has been eaten, it is important to choose a product that is more keepsake than gag. Unlike thin, generic plates, the PicPlate disks are available in a 7 ½ inch diameter size; they're made of a rigid, heavy gauge, injection-molded plastic suitable for home or office display.

Tip 4: Party favors

Among party supplies, party favors are a popular way to express thanks to guests.

But a mug or flute is oh so common. When guests take home a gift it will be a reminder of not just of the event but the host. So personalize it for your friends, family or company with unique party supplies, event planning or corporate events. Ideally, these will be memorable and displayable on a wall or shelf.

Tip 5: Eco-friendly, please

Yes, even party supplies must be eco-friendly. Kaye looks for unique products like PicPlates by Canyon Graphics that are durable and yet can be properly recycled and are therefore environmentally safe. "Clients are asking about eco-friendly ideas, and even more so the venues are boasting about what they do to be environmentally friendly."
