Can I get some assistance on printing passport Invites. I've already created them in Publisher but when I do a test print I can never get the pages to fall in proper order! Also whats the best typw of paper and how do I make sure I cut it so it looks pro (ish)?

As far as paper goes you can use heavier paper...I think I used 60-70 lb for mine and 105 lb cardstock for the covers. For cutting you can buy a paper cutter from any craft store or in any scrapbooking section of a store.

 

I didn't use Publisher for my passport invites but hopefully others can help you with getting the paper to fall in order.

Getting the pages in proper order is tricky!

 

My suggestion is to cut a piece of notebook paper into 4, fold each one in half and stack them to make them into a booklet. The go through and number each page and write on the pages what is supposed to be on each one. When you're done, you can take it apart, and see what is supposed to be next to what, and printed on the back of what.

 

As far as paper - use a heavy cardstock (100# or more) for the cover, and a heavier weight page (at least 28#, 35# if you can find it) for the insides.

 

Good luck!

I have one for powerpoint, I tried printing through vistaprint but the pages just weren't think enough and I couldn't cut anything straight even with my cutter haha! It was just getting too late and I didn't have the time to dedicate to finish them but I hope this helps you out.

Megan your day is almost here! Congrats! I actually found your template a couple of months ago and used it for my invites too. For the life of me I couldn't remember where I found it and then this thread pops up. Thanks a million for sharing and now I know who to thank in my planning thread :)

 

I've attached a copy of my version of the inside pages of the passport. I purchased shiney white metallic paper from paperandmore.com then just took it to Kinkos and had them print it out. They turned out super cute!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
