Shortbread Placecards

I have a fun idea for placecards at my wedding but I'm trying to figure out how feasible it would be and how to best execute it. I would love to do something edible so I was thinking of getting number-shaped cookie cutters and doing shortbread placecards. The names would be written on the number so you'd find your name, and the number of your cookie is your table number (our wedding is small so 9 table numbers would probably be the max). I guess my concern is writing the names on the cookies since the text would need to be small. I'm not the most gifted when it comes to lettering with writing, but I've also never had great tools. Is it feasible to take this on if I get a fine point icing tip? What about those edible markers? My concern with those is whether they would write on the surface of shortbread -- I'd probably need to put a layer of icing on it first, I guess. Any thoughts or suggestions appreciated!
