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.

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
