I have 8th grade penmanship, but will be writing out our escorts cards in fear of your situation. I’ll try to print them on my printer, but doubt the printer will be able to pick up something so small individually. Could you hire a calligrapher to do them 2 weeks prior to the wedding instead?

Could you order cards with the names and fill in the table numbers by hand?

I’m thinking of enlisting my grandfather – don’t laugh he has excellent printing.  Do you have any relatives or friends who’d be willing to do the handwritting?  It’s a pretty easy and fast project and would make them feel involved.

#1. If you like the look of handwritten – go for it!  It doesn’t matter that your handwritting isn’t formal or perfect, it’ll look more personal.  Do you know anyone who could do them for you locally?

#2. why are people going to change their rsvp’s?  Yikes I hope none of my guests are planning on that…

Also don’t do them too early. a couple weeks before I’d say.

We got our excort cards from Michaels.  I think they were packs of 50 for like $10.  Its a full sheet that you print on, and then tear or cut them apart.  That way we can print at home and then update any extra ones we may need. 

If you are doing a traditional card folded in half, you may be able to adjust your printer to print it.  The front is probably about 2″ by 4″ but when you open it up (Not folded) its more like 4″ by 4″ which should feed through some printers.

We are going to print out the names and table assignments on clear labels in a script font and stick the labels on the escort cards.

There is also a type of escort card that is an envelope. The outside of the envelope has the person’s name on it. Then there is a card inside with the table number, so you can switch them around if you need to.
