      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 = )

        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 = ) I 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

            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.
