first to note. expo disc is not a WB card, it's a white balance filter.

if you're talking abt card, kodak does produce 18% gray card. you might want to try?

I thought 18% grey is for exposure and not for WB? Or can it be used for both?

Hmm. But my cam's instruction manual states to "Frame a white object...." Grey works as well or better?

as long it is a neutral tone card, you use a it to do custom white balance.

18% gray card can use for doing white balance, and also use it for exposure metering.

custom WB filter is something which you take a photo towards a light source, to check the correct WB of the area. after which you've to set in your camera. =p
