Instead of making individual sandwiches for each of your guests, put together one giant muffaletta (a sandwich that's native to the French Quarter and features layers of Italian cold cuts with cheese and olive salad) the night before the party. Slice it into three-bite triangles and set out on a platter about 30 minutes before friends arrive.

A few years ago I made mini-muffuletta sandwiches for a Fat Tuesday party that were a hit. Trader Joe's had (not sure if they still do) an antipasto packet of sliced meats that included salami, ham, and mortadellla, and they were perfectly sized for the sandwich. I like using Giardiniera and pickled peperoncini in my olive salad. Gives it a great tangy/spicy flavor and is super easy to quickly dice.
