They weren't exactly what I wanted only because I had to get the STD's out so quickly that I didn't spend much time on the design and I'm not computer savvy. You just solved my problem on the brochures by generously giving me the template! It's like free candy

    I do have a question. I opened up the backgrounds you provided with the text boxes in powerpoint. If I type what I want in the boxes and save it can I then just upload into vistaprint?? That would be too easy or do I have to change resolution, etc. like you had mentioned before?
    I think it should be fine right out of powerpoint. It will be a little less than 300 dpi, but it should still look good. I took it from powerpoint & then opened it in photoshop to save as a psd. If you get stuck, send me your ppt file & I can convert it.

          I did a google image search for "riviera maya map." There are different versions of that same map all over.

            Morgan,

            Thank you so much for posting your brochure template. It's awesome! I have been going back and forth on what to do for a pre-wedding welcome letter and this really helped give me some ideas! Thanks again this is such a cute idea.

            Also, I've heard about Vista Print but have never used their service. It sounds like you had a good experience going through them and their prices were reasonable. I'll check them out since I don't think my printer will be able to handle the graphics quite that well.

            Thanks again,

            Amy

              A lot of us use vista print. Just be sure you are getting a sale price. You can google "vista print coupons" and find tons. I really have been happy with the quality. I also like that I can use all the color I want & not have to worry about using my ink. I can get stuff from them cheaper than I can print it myself & it looks a lot better.

                Wow. Thanks for the suggestion. I just googled "vista print coupons" and got a ton of coupons for some great deals. This is great. Is it silly I'm getting excited about this?

                Thanks so much!

                  Hey Morgan,

                  Sorry for so many posts but I have a quick question on Vista Print. I was just looking through their products and I did come across the brochures under their Marketing section but it looks like you can only order 25 at a time. Am I looking at the right thing? I really only need to order 10 though I guess taking in to account how much it would cost me to do it at home buying the 25 wouldn't be all that bad.

                  Thanks again,

                  Amy

                    I like this link www.vistaprint.com/minicatalog

                    I always get the uploads for free with that link. So shipped 25 brochures came to 35 cents each. Also, a home printer cant print all the way to the edge. I think 25 is the minimum. They usually arrive in 2 weeks even though slow shipping says way longer than that.
