This feature requires the Cloudbeds Plus plan or higher/equivalent.
Registration cards allow you to have a physical record of a guest's accommodation information for non-digital storage. While your guest's information is also stored electronically in the Reservations section of myfrontdesk, registration cards are also a great way to double-check information or receive details you may not have asked for during the booking process. It also allows you to accept a signed signature from the guest.
