    This is probably a really rediculous question but I'm new to the DIY scene.
    I am trying to make my own boarding pass invitations and have started in microsoft word with a template i found on here (thank you). I am just wondering if there is a better program that I should use that will allow me to layer things and such. If so what program and where do i get it from?

      I used word and it worked just fine!

      I did use powerpoint though for my pocketfold invites...both worked just fine!

          I would stick with Powerpoint. That was how I made my first DIY project (boarding pass STDs) and I was over my head enough. For my invites I tried Photoshop, but I ended up liking Illustrator more.

          I used Word for all of my documents and it works just perfect. To place text over a picture you will need to use a text box. This is located in the drawing tool bar. it's a white box with an A in it. It automatically has a black outline, so you'll have to double click on the outline and remove that... but other than that it should work pretty easily.
