I found printable ones at Staples, which I like.  🙂  They’re simple, though seem like they’ll be nice.  Ivory with a silver border.  They also had gold border option.

I’d say if you’re looking for nothing SUPER fancy, check out office supplies stores.

I bought cardstock from Paper Source (in Boston, they have locations in Coolidge Corner and one on either Newbery or Boylston, can’t remember which,b ut it’s by the Public Garden).  I just made a template in Microsoft Word, based loosely on this one (http://www.stylemepretty.com/2009/06/10/diy-project-custom-place-cards/ )  I then used a paper cutter with a scoring blade to make the folding easy.  I was so glad I diy-ed them, because our guest count (and table numbers) changed twice in the week before the wedding, and then I ended up accidently leaving them at home and having to reprint them all at the hotel! Definitely cannot recommend the scoring blade enough–it makes diy place cards SO much easier.

I bought purple placecards from CutCardstock.com. I used my paper cutter to cut rectangles of orange cardstock, slightly smaller than the place cards, rounded the corners and glued them to the placecards. I plan on printing the names and table numbers in a nice font on clear labels, since I have terribly handwriting and don’t trust my printer to print directly on the cardstock.

I went the easy/lazy rout and got some from Hobby Lobby when they went 50% off. Iam happy with them they even have some damask on them!

I made mine and they were super easy, just a corner punch and some cardstock.
