I just used Artscow.com, also using Googled images with text. Although a lot of people will say to make your own for prototype/playtesting, I'm trying to make for a pleasant experience for my playtesters

There's a coupon for Artscow through tomorrow:
Coupon Code: 25OFFTHINGS
Expiry Date: 11/26/2012

They seem to have a coupon each month - Last month I used one for a 2x54 card deck order, the total was $16.49. Shipping took roughly 2 1/2 weeks. Quality of the cards was a lot better than I expected.

There's a couple more places listed in the forums for places to get cards printed along with how to make your own quality cards, but Artscow is the only one I've had experience with.

I used The Game Crafter to make cards. With them you are not limited to sets of 54 cards.

I was pretty happy using card stock and putting them in sleeves with playing cards

I also really recommend using just cards of other games in sleeves with a self printed frontside!

Once the design is reasonably set, then print on thin card double sided, laminate, cut. Before that, print on paper, put in sleeves with cards from another game.

Printing them and sleeving them is the best and cheapest option for the initial playtesting.
