Have you considered a seating chart in lieu of escort cards?
Posted seating charts have been around for a while but they seem to be gaining in popularity.
There are a few benefits of a seating chart rather than individual escort cards. The seating chart can be completely organized (written out, printed, etc.) prior to the wedding day, meaning less set up on the big day. Guests don’t have to carry anything to their seat. Depending on how your organize it, it may be easier for guests to find out the others at their table.
For some examples of well-executed seating charts, read it and see it at Amanda Jayne Events.
