PlaceTiles® were created by Kristin Bowen in 1998 when, in an effort to add a finishing touch to guest tables at her wedding reception and provide a unique and thoughtful party favor, she resurrected an idea from the past — ceramic place cards. Since then, the company and its product line have expanded to include a variety of fine ceramic tableware and gifts, notably erasable ceramic products. Brands include PlaceTile ceramic place cards, MessageTile™ message/menu boards, HangOver Tile wine/gift/decanter labels, and CheeseTile™ cheese/food markers.

As featured on T.V. and media worldwide, PlaceTiles Designs' product line encompasses fashionable accessories for table from place cards, buffet cards, menu boards, cheese and food tags, napkin rings, knife rests, serving pieces and message boards. Being erasable ceramic, these products are reusable and eliminate the use of paper, thus saving trees.

With a special felt-tip marker, the erasable products are easily written on and erased. They are ideal for hostess, bridal shower, wedding, holiday and housewarming gifts.

PlaceTile Designs' products are distributed in select specialty gift, gourmet food, stationery and bridal retailers, as well as via event planners, caterers, interior designers, and e-tailers throughout the world. To see the full line of products, go to
