This is a must! anything that has to make a sharp turn won't work. I got that printer at Wal-Mart for about $50 I think.
The inside sheets are HP brochure paper. Kinda slick and about 28 lb I think. No see through at all. Those I printed on a color laser printer but an inkjet would have done them too.
I used Word to print the envelopes, again must be on a printer that feeds from the top and comes out the front or you will have marks on the envelope. I stamped the back and used a pretty stamp.
Any other questions please ask. I cannot take credit for all of this as I learned and borrowed from others on here!
Question: The paper that is on the inside of the Passport - did the blue speck pattern print out as well? Or did you buy paper like that and then print on the paper?

I am going to make up for it by posting these instructions on how to make passport covers yourself that look like the one below (I found it on the DIY Ntwrk). It is a great alternative for trying to make one's that are thicker than paper. I am going to attempt them and I will post them once I do!
