My sister just printed (on the computer) the names on cardstock and folded them.  That is what I am planning on doing too.

Try Avery. They have card stock that can make escort cards for about $12 for 160 cards. They do not have to be fancy. Generally people do not notice them longer thn a few minutes to find their table.

Scarlett11 :  I bought these from LCI Paper: http://www.lcipaper.com/foil-border-4up-placecards.html (I purchased the Ecru and Gold ones)

I printed them out in my regular printer, and they easily tore apart – couldn’t have been easier! I loved the foil border, which made them seem a little fancier.

Here they were on the day of our wedding:

This post just saved me $250! I was wondering about escort cards too and my calligrapher quoted me $1 per line so I budgeted about $300. Now $47 later I ordered the ones mentioned above from LCI! Im so happy to be saving some money!

Scarlett11 :  I DIYed my cards for a grand total of about $35 (: i really didn’t want tents, but actual cards, so I went to an office supply store and bought a pack of paper that was perforated as business cards- they’re the perfect size! I purchased a downloadable calligraphy font that I liked, and used the template on MS word for the business card paper. I also used some leafy wreath clip art on the cards on either side of the names, and they’re beautiful! Like I said, with the font download and the paper, it cost about $35. They’ll be placed in card holders, and each guest will have a succulent in a  small candle valence with the holder and the card- it doubles as a place card and a favor
