Hello! For those of you who made your own passport invitations, did you print them on decorative paper or did you apply the "passport" background and then print on white card stock? I have been searching for the right background to apply to my invites, but have had no luck. Any advice you could give would be very much appreciated!!! Thank you!

from what I've read here it varies, some people print them on regular cardstock and use the background they want, others use colored or metallic cardstock (for the cover), some use plain printer paper, and others use scrapbooking paper that has a decoration they like.. as I just posted in another thread I'm going to try to print my pages out using vistaprint flyer pages and I applied a background I found on there because it didn't work when I uploaded my image. I think the paper is shiny so I don't know if I'll like it but I'm going to see what it looks like and go from there.

I'm currently trying to figure the paper out for my boarding pass invites.

I ordered some samples from paperandmore.com. I was worried that my old printer wouldn't print nice enough but I was pleasantly surprised with how nice the everything looked on a metallic paper. It makes the ink look a little shiny and nicer.

well we learned the expensive way that you cannot print on dark coloured paper. So I guess it depends on what kind of decorative paper you're looking at. In the end we designed the background we wanted and printed it on white cardstock.

so what pound card stock is everyone using. Is some of it too heavy. I like the idea of white because I think the colors will be picked up better. advice please

If you are planning on printing at home... 100-110 lb paper will be too thick. Places like Kinkos can print on this. You want the thinner paper like 90 lb I believe.

hmm I don't know about lbs but we used the paper that was one step thicker than regular paper and NOT textured. The paper was .99 CAD pre sheet if that helps.

I am still trying to figure out how to get the passport look for the INSIDE pages also. I don't seem to find an answer, can you actually buy that paper some where? If so, where? Please help!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
