Where did you get your place cards/escort cards?

Originally I was ruling out any that you had to print out yourself because I was thinking that cardstock wouldn't be able to go thru my inkjet printer very well...but has anyone been able to do this without a problem?
I found a couple sites that will print them out for you if you send them a list in Excel:
Place Cards - Personalized with your guests' names
standard tented escort card, custom escort card, custom place cards
This one has some designs on them and for an extra charge they will print them out for you:
I was hoping that I could use Vistaprint so that I could upload our monogram onto each one, but it turned out they don't have any cards that are small enough to be escort cards.
Some websites had some place cards with cute designs, but you have to write in the names and tables by hand, and I have terrible hand-writing!

But to answer your question about card stock and inkjet printers, you should be okay to use them! I printed all my invites on cardstock and it seemed to work just fine! Because they are fed through more slowly than a laser printer/copier the paper doesn't seem to jam as easily. Sometimes I would print a group of pages (say 10) then let my printer sit for a few seconds before sending off the next group to print. This helped keep the quality consistent as sometimes when you're running a large number of pages through the ink doesn't quite seem to keep up and just needs a few extra seconds to get back to full strength. The easiest way to do this was in your print menu instead of selecting 100 copies, select 10 copies and hit okay 10 times. Then you're not stuck sitting there the entire time hitting 'ok'.

That's good to know that my printer can probably handle the cardstock printing. Definitely gives me more options!
Melindel, those calligraphy place cards are pretty and a lot cheaper than I would have expected.
