I was in the same boat...I REALLY wanted boarding pass STDs....but given that I needed 100 of them, it was just toooooo expensive.
I went with postcard STD's from Vistaprint and I was really happy with them. I got a lot of compliments, and that made me feel good! You could order the envelopes to go with them, as well as return address labels to match too....so I think they turned out ok. I'll attach a pic of the front - on the back I paid the extra for colour printing and wrote some more details about our plans, put our wedding website address, etc.
I am going to do passport invites for sure, but only to people who are likely to be coming, and I'll send them out after most people have booked (about 4 months prior to the wedding).
@ Chula I found some on Etsy ( Sproulliedesigns) for $3.50 per STD but I need a whopping 100. I only need the pass ($2.00) and sleeve ($1.50). Is it me or do you agree $350.00 is a lot for STDâ€™s
Hey Chula and Missjade, Whoop Whoop to us 2013 Brides!!!!!! Ok Ladies I having a problem, the vista print STDâ€™s are sooooo cheap but I want those boarding passes BAD. I would try to make them myself but if I spend the money on all the supplies and they donâ€™t turn out right I will be beyond ticked off. Iâ€™m very picky!!!!!!
