Morgan's pre-wedding welcome letters & template for making a brochure

Recommended Posts

Hi

Im new and saw this thread and thought maybe I could do this. But I am unsure where to start. I saw something about powerpoint and photoshop, then go to vistaprint to have them printed. SO to make this brochure, I would need to have photo shop?

Im not the DYI type of person. But its worth a try.

 

Thanks

this is just how i did it because these are the programs I have & was familiar with. Something like publisher would probably be more suited for this project.

I definitly didn't go about this the best way. I was very happy with the product, but made it in a pretty round about way.

In Vista Print, how do you know what your resolution is? Ive been working on this for like 6 hours strait and finally have it uploaded to VIsta, still says resolution is too low...how do I know what it is exactly?

 

thanks

the resolution will be 150dpi when you save it from powerpoint. that is why i would then take it into photoshop & up the resolution to 300dpi. I know 300 dpi is not necessary for a good print. you can probably order it as is from vista print & be fine. I can't guarantee that though, because I haven't done it.

 

I'm sorry for sharing this PITA way I did things! I wish I made it a simpler way with a template people could use. If i have some free time I might try to put together a better template eventually. or maybe someone else who is trying this project will make something like that.

I love this thread. I found it when I was a true noob and bookmarked but couldn't find it in all of my wedding stuff. I only have 1.5 weeks before we leave; i am SO far behind on everything but I'm still going to attempt this! I have a good friend who will let me use her photoshop and I actually figured out a way to get the lighter text boxes but didn't play around with it enough to figure out how to change the opacity. It took me HOURS to figure it out as well. Thank you for the template and inspiration!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
