        nice work!!!!
        I finished my boarding pass STDs a few days ago, now I just have to post pics!
        I did use my inkjet printer at home and they turned out great, but I agree that metallic doesn't work well on an inkjet printer. . .

          Great job! We just started printing and cutting ours. It definitely requires a lot of time and patience. Your guests will really appreciate them though!

            I used beautiful (but expensive) cardstock that had a metallic, pearly finish. A little hint, don't waste your time trying to print them on an inkjet printer. They are your wedding invites! Take them to a printing shop and have them printed on a colour laser printer. At Staples, it was only 23.00 including tax and their "rip fee" to print 20 pages. Save your document as a PDF file though and bring it on a cd or USB because the shop might not have the fonts downloaded on their computer. That happened to me and I had to drive back home and re-save them as PDF files and drive back to get them printed!

            A big thank you to the many templates I looked through found on this site. There is no way I could have done it without them! So THANK YOU! Any questions just ask!

            I didn't take any photos of the invites in the envelopes, but I used red envelopes to pull together the colour scheme and printed address labels on my computer with the hibiscus flowers on them. I finished with some metallic tropical fish stickers just for fun.

            WOW, these look GREAT! Thanks for sharing. Good work on being done with them ahead of time too! :)

              Thanks for all the nice comments ladies! I did them a little early because I am due in 7 weeks to have baby number 2, so knew that I wouldn't have a ton of time for wedding projects soon.

              To answer about the cardstock...I bought it at La Serre in Vaughn Mills Mall...But it is a chain, so see if there is one near you!

                  A few PM's have come into my mailbox asking for the template I used. Feel free to use this as a guide. Again, a big thanks to the ladies that posted theirs on here because I used bits and pieces from a lot of them.
                  The boarding passes are using Microsoft Word (including a few fonts you will have to download)
                  The Ticket jacket is power point. Any questions just ask.

                    I have had a ton of requests for these templates to be emailed to different email addresses (usually because they have Noob status). I love to help people out, but it doesnt take a lot of time to get to the level of 150 posts to be able to open these documents. I had to get to that number before I could open up any of the templates as well so I would like to just respectfully ask everyone to use the attachments on this thread and not ask me to email them separately. If you have just joined the site, that means you are probably in the early stages of planning your wedding and have lots of time to be able to open the attachments!
