To perforate or not to perforate, (boarding pass invites) that is the question

Recommended Posts

I am almost done the design phase o f our boarding pass invitations (not STD) smile41.gif. So I am beginning the planning phase, the paper has been ordered, scissors purchased, and I bought a perforating tool. It is one of those hand rotary wheels that is supposed to trace patterns on fabric, so I thought it might work on 110lb cardstock. WRONG! Good thing I only paid $1.50 for it at Fabricland! foshizzle.bmp

 

Our invites almost look like most (with the bar code) except I would have to fix up the cutting template because as of now it is a bit different.

 

So my question is, should I bother to perforate the invites?? We are not having a detachable RSVP postcard, since we figure that most will not return them.

 

Do most of your guests rip them or not? Since there is no RSVP, I am having a hard time justifying the extra expense this perforator-cutting tool would cost.monkey.gif

 

 

Side note; anyone know why a bar code would be printing funny (it comes out looking staggered)frown.gif

 

Your opinions & help are welcome and appreciated!

I didn't perforate. We didn't do an RSVP so I didn't see the need to do the extra work. Most people that I know just stuck them on the fridge as a whole.

 

I did have some trouble with the barcode but don't remember how I fixed it. It might have something to do with the font if you aren't using one that is standard on your computer.

I bought a blade for my rotary cutter that perforated. Maybe it was too sharp, but it just but through the paper and it tore off with just a gentle touch. After that happening to one, I decided to not perforate them. I didn't have an RSVP either, but it was an STD. The blade cost like $5-7ish.

The best tool for perforating is the fiskar rotary trimmer. I use mine for scrapbooking and used it for the first print/rough draft of my STD'd, worked great! Not only did it make them easier to cut out but made the perforating so easy. Besides the trimmer, all you need to buy for a couple dollars is the perforating blade that just slips right in.

I only perforated the RSVP card and left the others alone. I wouldn't bother with it since you don't have an RSVP card.

    • Let me know if it works. I'm really curious to know
    • I believe that it is absolutely not important what kind of gift, the main thing is that it was presented with all heart. For example, recently my friend had an anniversary and I gave him an original painting in word art style. He really liked it, as I found the right words. Hmm .. Finding out where their first kiss was will be a real problem, but I think it can be solved. Just arrange a walk with them and ask more about how they started dating, where they first met, etc. They themselves will reveal all the secrets to you. I hope you can make an amazing gift for them. Good luck !!
