          I was just going to suggest these. They are really easy. I did 40 of these and it took me less than an hour to print, fold, cut and glue.

          Let me know if you need any help.

            Oh no! Too bad. But I used 110# for everything because I think it looks and feels so nice.

              This is going to sound HILARIOUS to all you DIY'ers...but...I don't even know where to look for paper lbs...What IS the best "weight" of paper to use for the boarding pass envelopes, and what will fit in a #10 size envelope?

                I used the 100lb card stock for the folder thingy and printed the actual boarding pass on 80 lb paper (text weight according to paper and more). The 110 paper is VERY thick and would not feed in my work copiers so for the fact that color laser copies are at least $0.50 a piece, I saved some $$$ by using the 80lb paper that I could print on at work. I took the 110 lb paper to kinkos to print out my folders.

                To answer the q... using the 110lb paper for the folder and 80lb for the boarding pass (I had 3 pages that printed out on 1 sheet of paper) and the envelope that used the same 80lb paper, it weighed exactly 1 oz, so I only used a $0.42 stamp... using the 110lb may have pushed it over and costed more in stamps, idunno, maybe becks can say.

                I would have prefered to use the 110lb all around. Its nice and thick. I like it. I will use that for my invites.

                I think the original q was what "weight" means... Its just the thickness of the paper. I think 110lb is hardcore thick. Thicker than regular scrapbooking cardstock. 80lb is not exactly really thick, but its good enough. Not recommended for invites(unless you back it or something)!!! Regular printer paper is 20lb or 24lb.
