What cardstock are you using and what kind of ink are you using? Is your printer laser or ink?

Did you put it straight into your bag after printing? We had to let ours dry for at least 2 hours before touching them.

Could be that the paper is slick and the ink is not adhering well or taking a long time to dry. Maybe give it another test and a long time to dry. Otherwise I have heard of people using a spray fixative to seal the ink to the paper, you might try that. One of the options is hairspray, though the paper may yellow over time (wouldn’t affect things for your guests, only if you were wanting to save a copy for yourself in a scrapbook/box or something) http://piddix.blogspot.com/2011/02/how-to-prevent-smudges-and-bleeding.html
