Steph's DIY passport invites - pictures, instructions and advice

Recommended Posts

KrysP - for STD's you should send those as soon as you set the date (or at least within a few weeks of that) whether this is 6 months or 18 months ahead of time.  For invites it really varies - I sent mine 4 months ahead with RSVP 2 months ahead.  But a lot of other brides are doing it much earlier.  I think it depends on the type of event - mine is just a weekend, no travel agent involved, people picking their own travel dates.  I think the people doing a week with everyone coming and going on the same date and from the same place need to send earlier.

 

harkatea-the seal is wax and a stamp.  I forgot to add that to the list at the beginning.  I got the wax and stamp at Sam Flax (an art supply store).  Micheals has some but is pretty limited - just gold and silver wax and initial or heart stamps.  You can also do a search on line.  The wax comes in little candle sticks and you just light, drip some on the envelope and then stamp.  Some of mine came out nice and round but the majority were a little off.  but I think that gives it character.

These are amazing! I am starting to make passport STDs & was having the same debate about printing gold/silver on navy paper. Thanks for the heads up!

Fantastic job! My FSIL (who makes stationery for a living) will be making my passports, but I definitely want to include the envelope liners and wax seals - at last - something I can do myself!
