    Okay I have finally finished my STD's. When people say "a labor of love" they are not kidding. The word "LABOR" should be emphasized, but I still love how they came out. I have to thank soo many brides on here and this site because I WOULD OF NOT HAD DONE THIS WITHOUT THIS SITE. A special thanks to all the brides who gave me the inspirations when making these.  I have to admit I did have fun making them. It was time well spent with my FI. My colors are Seafoam green and Palm Beach Coral. 

     

    I printed these from my own printer... I wanted a printer because I knew that I wanted to do a lot of the DIY gifts and my FI told me that he would get me one for xmas if I wanted but I also wanted a new phone so to say the least I choose the phone. Well I gave birth to my daughter on December 15th, got my phone for xmas and my FI surprised me in January with the printer as a "push gift" aka baby mama gift :)  (he also got me some uggs). Anyway the printer he got me was the exact one I wanted. I would have bought it myself but it was just too expensive to buy ($299.99). My finance had this huge coupon from staples and got the printer for $114.00. I love him sooo much, and he was so impressed with the STD he said he didn't think they would turn out this way. He also said he could never do this for a living (after all the labor). 

     

    Cost Breakdown for 100 STD's = $1.55 per STD w/o the brochures and magnets, 2.22 with.

     

     

    Save the dates  
    glue dot $3.85
    score $4.88
    cutterpede $24.95
    rounder $5.03
    perforator $5.31
    paper $45.00
    brads $6.00
    envelopes = liners $56.64
    Total $155.51
       
    vista print brochures (50) $31.37
    vista print magnets (75) $35.48
       
    Total  $222.36

     

     

    I want to include that I still have soo much material left over for my tags, labels, and invitations.

     

    I used "Crystal Metallic Cardstock"

        I forgot to say the boarding pass covers are Silver Metallic Cardstock.

         

        I shopped around to find the cheapest deals (and it was very time consuming but worth it)

         

        Here are the stores I used 

         

        Amazon  - Materials 

        Envelopper inc - Envelopes

        Cards and Pockets - Paper (silver and flame metallic paper)

        Eyelet Outlet & Brads - Brads 

        Paper Mart - Ribbon

         

        Printer I used was Canon Pixma MX882 -feeds through the rear end and I was able to print 10 papers at a time. I let them dry overnight before I printed on the back of the paper. sorry I didn't take pics of the back. It's also true to color because I thought because it was a ink printer it would absorb the ink and it would get lighter so I darken the colors on the template (mistake) it only absorbed some of the color. I'm still happy with the seafoam color I tried to match. 

         

        Hope you like.. and once again thank you!!!
