    Has anyone done a welcome magazine for their oot bags? Mine is designed to look like a bridal magazine (complete with upc code & all lol). It has info and pics about the bridal party, family and friends, personalized crossword, word seek, itineraries, resort info etc. After reviewing it, it seems so far so good, but now I'm second guessing myself on whether it would be enjoyed by the guests as much as i think... :|  Any ideas, advice??? Thanks :)

          I am doing it using Scribus (free software) & its not completed yet.  Not sure where to get it printed but there are alot of printing places around that I can bring the converted .pdf file & have it printed in glossy mag paper. I can't upload/view anything on this site yet cuz Im so new :( but when I get enough replies on this site & they give me my big girl panties I will certainly post it! lmao cheers :)

            Wow I love this idea! Does the scribus software have magazine templates built in?

              no, they dont :( The only reason I am using it is because it was highly recommended by desktop publishers but I find it cumbersome to use for laypeople.  Its more for people who have experience in DP tools.  Now that I am used to it, its not so bad. I like it because it gives you total control over what a project will look like |& it has a wiki. :)

                That's too bad, but it still sounds really cool. I'll have to see if FH wants to do something like that (He would be in charge of designing it, he is far more likely to do it well than I am lol)

                      I've been wanting to do a welcome magazine as well! How are you thinking of binding the pages together?
