  1. I'm cleaning out some of my old supplies and have a bunch of luggage tag holders in two styles that I no longer use. I have approximately 50 clear hard plastic holders - something like the image below. Note that the loops that they come with are not particularly elegant, so you will likely want to replace those with ribbon, which is what I normally did for my clients: I also have about 100 of vinyl/flexible tag holders, something like these, except that they are more of a clear frosted rather than the gray color shown here: Each tag takes and insert the size of a business card (3.5 x 2 inches) If you are interested, please PM me with the number you want and style you prefer (and whether you will take the other style if I've given away the ones you prefer), as well as your zip code so I can tell you how much the shipping will be. Payment for the shipping will be accepted by paypal.
  2. DC meetup: Montreal Mission, March 3
  3. Thanks! I can't tell you all what a pleasure it is working with you on your wedding planning! And you guys have some amazing ideas. I can't tell you the number of things over the last two and a half years people have asked if I could produce that have become a main part of my collection - everything from chapstick labels and tops for goody bags to ID badges! That and all of the amazing new takes on invitations... you guys are the best! At some point I'll post some photos of the really custom pieces you all have inspired!
  4. Most of my clients (and us, too) send them prior to the wedding with a brochure or newsletter with general information on the location, what to pack, etc. I think the nicest thing about the luggage tags is they help your guests recognize each other as they are at the airport or standing in the customs & immigration lines, so having them before they travel is a bonus.
  5. I just wanted to let all of the DIYers know that another forum I'm a member of is having a "Garage Sale" tomorrow, Saturday August 20. Stationers from all over the country will be participating, selling off unused and overstock paper, supplies, equipment etc. at (or below) wholesale cost. I have seen some of the items for sale, and many of them are things that aren't available without a wholesale license, so if you're in the market for cardstocks, or other DIY supplies, here's an opportunity to save a bit. Again - it won't be accessable until Saturday (probably at midnight Friday). Setup day is today so it's asking for a password, but that will be removed when the sale is open. Enjoy! http://letstalkstationery.com/garagesale
  6. It looks really great! I agree that the introduction of a second (script) font to highlight certain elements could give it a bit of a pop. Also, if it were me, I'd move the second paragraph up a bit (you can add space between the other paragraphs), move the "to" that's on it's own to the line above or below, and adjust the wording so it doesn't read "honor and celebrate... celebration" You might also want to add your wedding date - lots of people like to know that information. Fabulous work!
  7. I had a friend ask about this invite and the only place I could think to find it was BDW. And then I realized that it's still just as funny and needs to be bumped!
  8. Here's my suggestion - figure out what you're planning on printing first... If you are going to use metallic paper for anything a laser is your best bet. But if you're going to do iron-on transfers, you'll have to have an inkjet. The other thing to think about is whether the printer can handle heavier cardstock - a manual feed tray that doesn't require going through lots of rollers is your best bet. Go to Staples, BestBuy, or wherever and take a look at them. I suggest taking a page with text and an image on a USB drive and printing one on the demo models. Take a look at the consistency of the color, the tightness of the print, etc. And take along a few sheets of cardstock and see if the pages get stuck (just use the manual feed option). As far as brands, Epson has excellent color coverage, HP is really user friendly and has gorgeous, tight printing. those are the only two I know anything about. And take a coupon with you! I know Staples is running a 15% of any in-store purchase right now. Good luck!
  9. I have a stock of cardstock cut to size for boarding passes for sale (I've switched my cutter and can't use these any more). They are pre-cut to 3-1/4 x 8-1/4 inches, in premium bright white matte cardstock (100#). These can save you quite a bit of time and effort in cutting if you are making DIY boarding passes. I will sell in batches of 50 sheets for $3.00 plus shipping. PM me if you are interested.
  10. I have about 200 clear plastic luggage tag straps in a style I'm no longer using - similar to those pictured below. I will sell them in batches of 25 for $1.00 each, plus shipping. PM me if you are interested.
  11. You can find a huge variety of "free for personal use" fonts at dafont.com. Download the zip file, extract the .ttf file and copy and paste it into your fonts folder (in your windows folder). Then you can access them in any program.
