    I used the brochure template on Vistaprint. I put in a black background, then added the text box and the Mexican themed artsy thing at the bottom. I copied this to all three panels of the front of the brochure, and then did the same process on the back. We got 25 brochures (they come in batches of 25), so we have 75 door hangers. Steve took them to work to cut them and run them through the laminator. If you can laminate them, they are a little stiffer and will likely hold up through travel, etc, a bit better; however, the brochure paper was surprisingly sturdy so I wouldn't say it is necessary.

        I've used Vista Print for business cards before but never even considered them for wedding stuff. I think i will have to look into it :) Everything you made came out great!

                  Not at all! Most of it I got free with my weekly "Best Deal Ever" emails from Vistaprint, so most was just shipping. I don't have exact numbers, but everything from VP was around $50-70. The cardstock and ribbon are both from Michaels and were pretty cheap (like $1/sheet that will do 3 menus). The badge holders for the luggage tags were around $25 with shipping from amazon. The pens from OTC were $6/dozen and I bought WAY too many - and of course, no one else wants them since they are personalized!

                      How did you get your monogram on the stuff? I've been trying to figure it out but I can't! I have a Monogram from Powerpoint I did but I can't get it to transfer and when I do it shows up as the entire business card instead of just having it in a little corner! :-)
