I am the Advancement Chair for our pack, each year we have over 100 scouts advance to the next rank. I have struggled with facing the task of handwriting all of these cards (I no longer own a typewriter). I have spent a few hours working on a template that can be used to print out the full cards.
You will still need to purchase the 8 card sheets from your scout supply store, but I created a MS Publisher Template that will allow you to print the cards from your computer. If anyone is interested in using this file let me know and I can share it with you.
