          They look amazing!  How much do you think it cost you to make each invitation?  Where did you get the palm tree stamp for your wax seal?

            It cost about $200 to make 50 invitations and literally half of that was the printing on the blue paper - so I can't stress enough - don't use dark paper.  i had too much vested at that point to change it.

             

            I got the palm tree stamp and wax from Sam Flax which is a large art supply store - I think they have locations nationwide.  It was in their paper/invitation department.  I've also seen some on line with just Yahoo searches - don't know exact names but had contemplated ordering it first.  Michael's only had the standard heart or wedding themed ones.

                These are great!!  They looks so professional and all your little touches really add to it.  Thanks so much for sharing.  My passports are about done but you have made me think of some things that I might want to change.  Thanks again!!

                    SUCH a great job!  And thanks for the details on materials especially!  I have been trying to figure out what thickness of paper to use and you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find that info!  They look so awesome!
