Ok so I haven't printed my invitations yet but I just finished designing them and the luggage tag RSVP. I think I'm going to go to staples and print them on card stock since my printer sucks lol. Let me know what you think! It took way more effort than I thought! Who knew picking fonts could be so tiring?!

@helenk....I used staples to print out mine also and they were very reasonable.  My printer didn't print the colors accurately and looked horrible.  When Staples did a test print, I was very impressed.

I also did boarding pass invites - everyone loved them!

 

Great job!!!  
One question - on the RSVP what is the 'm' before the ______________  (assuming it's the line for their name).

I am probably just having a blonde moment ...

 

 

Awesome job again!

Yea I printed this at home and the colors are really light so I hope when I go print them the colors pop more! Did staples test print it for free? Can you have them cut them for you also? I wonder how much extra that is

I'm not a crafty person either as this is my first DIY ever! Its def not a one day thing. I downloaded the template from aylee bits. The clip art I just googled and copy and pasted it but I had to resize and drag it into the template. The fonts are what took me the longest! I am weird about fonts and everything I was doing at first just looked bad to me. I ended up downloading the cursive font used for our names. It takes patience esp if you're not savvy with MS Word. It took maybe a few sessions of playing around to get it how I wanted. Since I plan to let staples print and cut them for me the work is pretty much done! Just have to arrange them in the sleeves I plan to buy can't wait to see the finished product!

Haha makes total sense!!
Fonts were the hardest for me too. Had to try a lot as some didn't space right, etc. I printed them at home and made my own ticket jackets. Was a lot of work, but thankfully fiancé was right into it.

How did you make your ticket jackets? I was going to buy some from a craft store or something, but I am obviously into saving money where I can....lol. I pretty much designed this myself with minimal input from the fiancee. He did help make the final decision on colors of the clip arts though. And he approves of the final design, lol. He's not into the wedding planning other than where I force it on him. If it were up to him we'd go to city hall and forget the destination wedding altogether. Men.  :lol:
