Copper ink place cards

I made these place cards for Ritz-Carlton in Hong Kong and they wanted Chinese translations of their guests’ names included. My Chinese isn’t the best in the world but I do have a little experience so I agreed. They ran the guest list through an online translator and I thought it’s gonna be all weird, but actually the translations were pretty good. I used a copper ink, though it looks kind of red in this pic.
