Where did you get your placecards?

Has anyone gotten their placecards yet?  I'm not sure if I want to go the business card route on Vistaprint or try to make them on my own or just buy them somewhere else. 
Do you plan on having all of the names printed or is someone going to write the names on the card?  I'm not sure which way to go.  For those of you that are having the names printed, how are you doing that?  Are you printing each card individually at home or somewhere else?  Totally lost on the placecards.

    I saw some at Michael's. I figure I may just use those or I can go the DIY route as well.  I get free printing on campus so that where I have been having everything printed for the wedding.  Ill probably just create a template mimicking those from Michaels and make some nice one's with all the RSVP'ed guests names printed on them.  HTH

    i found some on gartnerstudios.com. they are the company that does the "brides" collection at michaels i think. once you get the placecards in the mail, you go on the website and use the template and print them out.

    For my aunt's wedding last June I used cutcardstock.com.  We wanted a metallic look and they had those place cards.  The only "problem" was printing.  It took a bit more work than I thought it should but part of the problem was I wasn't using a computer/printer I was familiar with.  But these are tent cards so if you didn't print on them, you would have to write.  Also, a professional printer said they were too small to feed through their machines.

    A&M - do you have a pic of the satin seating board you're using for inspiration?  I love the sound of that and I've never seen one!

    We are using a seating board that I am creating.
