Yours look so good! Very neat and polished.

 

I have mine designed BUT now I need to buy the paper, print them and make them- ugh! My Mom is coming to visit me within the next 2 weeks to help me.

 

I have a question- I know you said you used paperpresentation.com

 

For your boarding pass envelope (you used flame) what kind of paper did you get:

8.5 x 11 Text 32 lb.

OR

8.5 x 11 Cover 120lb. ??

 

Also, what paper did you get for the actual boarding passes?

 

Sorry, if I sound stupid BUT I have never made invites before and I'm cluless on what paper to get = ) smile35.gif

No problem at all, Monica. One thing that I really liked about the finished results was that I had them printed and cut at a printing shop. I have a friend who got me a great deal ($115 for 300 pages, all cropped/stapled/perforated). If you can find a shop to do that for you, I would say that was a HUGE help. Even if you can't get them to print it for you, but you can get them to crop it... Anyway, see my answers below in green.

8.5 x 11 Text 32 lb. - I used this one, and the only reason I know is b/c it was sold in packages of 50, not 25

OR

8.5 x 11 Cover 120lb. ??

 

Also, what paper did you get for the actual boarding passes? The paper that I used for the actual boarding pass was from Office Max and I just found a color that I wanted and opened packages until they wre the weight that I wnated them to be. It was a package of 500 sheets in a plastic wrap. It was actually one of the cheaper versions, but I thought it was best for what I wanted.

 

Sorry, if I sound stupid BUT I have never made invites before and I'm cluless on what paper to get = ) smile35.gifI don't think you should stupid at all! I don't know a lick about paper, so I understand your confusion! I ended up having to pay .58 postage though for the envelopes as well as the RSVP return postcard, since they were a little heavey and then the postcard wasn't the right size. Oh well, you live and you learn!

They look great Carly! Love the color combo. And I hate how photobucket deletes the images when all you are trying to do is organize the pics you have stored sad.gif

Thanks so much for your advice! Yes, I know I can get them printed at Kinkos but I need to look into having someone crop, cut, perforate for me = ) May have to do it myself. We'll see. Atleast now I know what kind of paper to get! Thanks!

Kinko's quoted me almost $600 to print them for me! That was just printing! I kinda think they might've made an error, but that's insane. Good luck!

Dang that's crazy!! You got a great deal from your friend!!! I only need 60 pages and at .49 a page. Another question I have for you = )
What were the deminsions on your reply card in order for it to qualify as a postcard? I want to do mine as a postcard but I'm afraid it will be too small.

The last page was an RSVP postcard. I had the printing compnay that I used perforate it and I used labels for the return address. Hopefully people will understand what they are. I did have to pay $.58 for the postcard though since they weren't "postcard" size, so that is something to be aware of.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • 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.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
