    We finally finished our boarding pass STDs last night and I love the way they came out! First I want to thank everyone on this forum for sharing theirs, it was a big help in putting mine together! Here they are:

    I used Aylee Bits :: Aylee on weddings, design, personal finance, travel, photography, the internet and more for the boarding pass template and used Microsoft Publisher to do all of the editing. I printed the STDs on white 65 lb cardstock with our home printer and they came out better than I expected! For the covers I used Wausau 65 lb cardstock in Celestial Blue and the envelopes were Harvest Orange in case anyone wants to know the colors. I used a rotary cutter to make all of the straight cuts and ended up cutting the round edges by hand because I bought the wrong paper punch! It ended up not being too bad.

    We also printed out our address labels. I was excited because I got to put our logo on our return address labels! Luckily a friend had packs of the Avery printable labels so we just stole one sheet of each since we didn't need a whole pack.

    Overall, I believe the invitations cost about $0.65 each in paper (including envelopes). We bought new ink right before this project and only used about 1/3 of it to print 25, so I think we did pretty well with the final price. Hope this information helps!

        You have the same color scheme as me! I did orange jackets and blue envelopes for my passes. They came out great!

              I NEED HELP! I'm trying to get the palm tree in the backround of the Boarding pass...and it's not letting me.i'm using the template...and it's not letting me make the palm tree see thru! argh! so aggravating.
              anyone have any tips? I also, can't change the color of the outline of the template. Anyone know how to adjust colors...it doesn't let me select thewhole outline, just certain parts.
