    HELP !!!

    I am wanting to create Boarding Passes for my invitations. I thought about doing STD and then invitations, however I think I may just do one and have a little booklet of Boarding Passes with brief information about different categories: Invitation, Accommodations, Travel Agent Info, RSVP. What do you think? Wedding planned for February 2014.

     

    I am still trying to plan and design it all out, with the help of all the beautifully created Boarding Passes posted on this site!

     

    I just had a couple questions:

     

    How do you use the DaFont fonts? I have tried downloading it however it seems to be zipped? There is a palm tree font that I want :) Would someone be able to just email me the palm tree font so I can copy and paste it?

     

    How do you make a picture look faded? If I were to use a picture as the background of my Boarding Pass, I have seen some that look faded into the background. Unsure how to accomplish this look.

     

    Any help and advise would be great!!!!

     

    THANK YOU

        I have felt the same frustration of finding ideas I like and not being able to figure out how to do it.  Good luck.

          I had the exact same questions when I first started.  I made a promise to myself that if I ran across someone who had the same issues I would help!  My posts for help was kinda overlooked too.

           

          Okay so...the font for all sorts of "trees" is called "wmtrees1".  After I download the zip file, I hit "export" at the top left of the screen...second tab from left I think.  I chose a file folder to save it in and hit okay.  After that I opened up Word or PPT and scrolled down the font list to "wmtrees1".  Each letter in the alphabet corresponds to a "tree".  The letters (G) and (H) are the most common "trees" seen on templates from here.

           

          Hope that helps!

            Hopefully I can explain this For the fonts. After you download the file open 'my computer' and find the file. It is a zip file so you have open it. When you right click on the file there should be a export option in the menu, after you export it you then goto the exported file right click and hit install. For the picture. I'm not sure what program you are using so I only know publisher which is what I used to design all my paper items. So in publisher when you insert a picture. On the top tool bar there is a tab called design (I think that's what it's called or it might be tools) but under one of those tabs on the far left side there should be 'recolour picture' there there are many options to play with. Color, brightness, contrast, just play around with it until you get a water mark like look. To place it in the background under one of those same two tabs (tools or design) there are 'send backward' and 'send forward' buttons. Just send the picture backward and any new text or picture boxes you add after are brought forward. But if your not using publisher I'm sure non of that helps lol
