You might do better to use Inkscape and maintain the vector art (which
is what fonts are, at root). Make the individual cards as SVG, and
they will print crisply at any and all resolutions, with no
pixelation. Barring that, at least make them 100% quality (no
compression) JPGs at the highest resolution for the printer you intend
to use (probably 600 dpi).

Seems a shame to use card stock and color ink to print JPGs that will
be sampled at (probably) 96 dpi if you just use screen-grabbing.
