I’m looking for ideas of some places to get place cards. I am also fine with DIYing it, so that I can accomodate people who tell us they are coming last minute. In reality I am fine with just black cursive ink and some design on it.
So where did/are you getting yours?

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.
