For all of you brides that have done your own Boarding Pass Invites. Help!!!

Recommended Posts

I'm attempting to do my own boarding pass invites and I would like to use metallic card stock to dress them up a bit. I went onto paper and more and when i went to purchase the metallic card stock it stated on the bottom that this cannot be used in a laser or ink jet printer sad.gif For all of you girls that have used metallic card stock for your invites, where did you buy it from?

 

I want to use metallic or a glossy cardstock for my boarding passes and metallic card stock for the ticket jacket and envelopes.

 

Oh and what size envelopes did you use? Im not sure what size to buy for the invites and for the RSVP cards.

 

 

Thank you so much!!!

I just put mine in the mail today and will post pics in a couple of days but I bought the cardstock from paper-papers. They had the best prices plus I found a coupon code online. I bought the AZALEA for the jacket and CRYSTAL for the boarding passes. I used a laser printer on the crystal cardstock and they were fine except it did curl the paper a little bit but just put something heavy on top of them and they flatten out. Also I bought A8 size for envelopes as I had a postcard as the RSVP card (only 28 cents for postage) so I had to buy a little bit bigger envelope so it would all fit.

Take a look around there are lots of places that sell metallic papers that are okay with laser printers. I know that the Stardream and Curious Metallics are okay for both injet and laser printers - assuming your printer can take the thicker paper.

 

Good luck!

I didn't actually USE the metallic for printing, it was just the little slotted envelope that the boarding passes were inside. I used a midweight cardstock for printing.

if your laser printer loads paper from below (the tray is below), then the cardstock will curl. If you can load your paper from outside, so it feeds straight, then the cardstock will most likely stay straight. I have a Phaser 8560 so my printer prints it fine. don't bother to try to have Kinkos print it, because they will refuse to print on metallic cardstock. You may find a local mom and pop printer, who can give u a good deal. you can bring your own paper that you already bought. just a thought if it gets too frustrating.
