I printed all my invitations and programs on my inkjet printers, I have an Epson and a Kodak, both photo printers. Cardstock works fine with most inkjets, I used plain cardstock and textured linen cardstock and it turned out great. If you plan on printing pictures on vellum, I don’t suggest an inkjet. I would use a color laserjet somewhere if you have access to one because pictures printed on vellum with inkjets will smear. The laserjet worked great for the vellum. If you can I would get some sample sheets of different types of paper and test them out. I think most cardstocks should be fine. I really loved the linen cardstock that I used for the invitations. I think a cool textured cardstock would work great for the escort and place cards. I got all my paper from hobby lobby during the many times the scrapbook paper was on sale. They have different types of cardstock that you could try out. Is the last part of your name your wedding date? I’m also getting married 9/6/08 if it is, lol.

I do alot of scrapbooking and can tell you that a printer that feeds from the bottom may have problems pulling stiffer paper. If you have a choice of a printer that will pull from the top you might want to give that a try

we had an issue with 120lb cover (too thick) but found that we can feed 80lb cover into the printer.
