Our boarding pass STD - Finally done! (pics + links)

Recommended Posts

I can't even remember when I started to work on our STD, but it was months ago! This project dragged on forever based on quite a few different things (such as delays in getting our booking info from the resort, my mad skills at procrastination, my OCD with details, issues with the printer...). Anyhow, I wanted the STD to be done a long time ago, and when it became clear that this was not going to happen then at least I wanted to have them done by the end of the year. They were mailed on the 31st of December, so we made it just in time!

 

I designed the tickets based on the boarding pass template by Aylee (www.ayleebits.com). I wanted a very sleek, modern and minimalist design, and I think that we were able to achieve that. The sleeve was designed from scratch by myself. The labels were modified from Martha Stewart's template (www.marthastewartweddings.com). Due to an issue with Kinko's, they could not cut the project so I had to do it all by hand. I used a rotary cutter and score as well as a corner punch. The corner punch was not the same size as the template, so I used it where I could to save time and cut the rest by hand with scissors. I also didn't like the stamps currently available at the post office, so I tried to vary it up best that I could. Otherwise, it was either a stamp of the Queen or of the 2010 Olympic mascots!

Overall I'm pretty happy with the end result, but I find that it wasn't really worth all of the work and the expense in the end. I would have cost just as much to pay a designer to do it all, so had I had to do it all over again, I'd do things differently! I will still most likely be designing the invitations, menus, etc myself, so we'll see if I really learned from my mistakes in the end!

They look great! My favorite is the outer envelope that says "Save the Date." I'm sure your guests will be delighted to receive these!
