Budget Friendly Escort Card/Place cards

Hello All, 

I am looking for a budget friendly escort/ place cards idea. I tried Vista Print but MOH said it is tacky for me to write the names. Plus with that option, wouldn't I have to purchase a card holder? But they are expensive when you need to buy around 200. I am trying to find an option that will cost around $50. 

Thanks Ladies :)

    Im doing a ribbon board with the escort cards on it. Personally im handwriting the names. I think it gives it a personal touch. I have seen people just write out the names. Dont think its tackey at all.

    I ordered mine here: http://wedding-paper-products.com/Escort-Cards.php They were reasonably priced and custom designed to coordinate with my other wedding stationary. Service was fast and the designer was always responsive. I used flat cards and had card holders that held rows of 10 each. I think there is also the option to have her create a template if you want to DIY.

    Just saw this on Etsy.






    If I am reading it right the cards are on sale for $.50/each and includes printing.  That's a deal for sure!

    <div>I like both, I have seen some really nice ones made up, but im going to use the cards on a ribbon board. like this..Its pretty much the same thing of seating your guest just in different forms..the chart is probably less expensive since you could several names on 1 piece of cardstock verses indiviaual names on one car and buying packs of cards. </div><div><img src="https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQ2fGh4ceYiSSHylYmZljrMySvOWAWJ5qiozltHlde4hh5-BSGdzA" alt="" /></div>
