Here is my DIY boarding pass invites - at least, a rough draft.  I'd love some suggestions/feedback!

 

Our colors are Royal Blue, Teal and Sangria, so I thought I'd make each pass in one of the colors.  I've blacked out our "personal" information, so it's not as nice looking with the big black marks, haha.

 

What are your thoughts/feedback?  Anything you would suggest I change?

Those are super cute! Did you make them yourself?

I did - I used the Aylee Bits template for the outline, and put in the words/graphics/etc.  I'm going to get them printed on shimmery champagne colored paper.  I had to find transparent images, as I'm not handy at photoshop to make them.  I'm trying to do one now for the envelope (make an image transparent so I can print on colored paper) and it's a PAIN!

Where are you printing them? I'm debating if I should do my own invitations but my printer at home drains the color ink quick so I'm afraid I would spend a ton on color ink to print all of them. Is there a way to print them at like a fedex/kinko? And the template you just downloaded to your computer and you were able to edit and customize it? I'm new to this whole DIY thing, lol.

My FI is printing them on a color laserjet at work, but you can get them done at a Kinkos or similar type of printing place.  I printed out 2 copies on my home computer so I could practice, and definitely takes a bit of ink!

 

I saved mine as PDFs after I was done, and just made sure to uncheck "Fit to Page" on my printer options (it distorts the size - was worse when I was trying to print chapstick labels!).  

 

I'm planning on writing an instruction sheet to my FI on what goes on what paper, and what is doublesided.  I would suggest doing the same thing at a Kinkos, and seeing if they'll print out 1 for you first so you can check it.  They probably do things like this a lot :)

 

I gave the 2 I printed to FI's parents & sister (who are staying with us this week) and they LOVE them.  I'm so happy :)

 

 

For the template, I downloaded it in Word to my computer and customized it.  It was kind of a pain, not going to lie!  I'm not sure I followed the instructions...but I figured it out :)  Once I had it how I wanted it, I saved it as a PDF and test printed it in B&W (to make sure it looked good).  

 

My suggestion is to search google for transparent background images, unless you're planning on printing on white background pages.  You can search to see how to removed a background, but that seemed complicated to me lol

@helenk thanks for the info I found a really nice background , based on your infromation. I must say for a not so DIY person, I think my boarding passes turn out really nice. Now I am trying to figure out how to upload the picture.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
