I got the free templates from here:

I got some inspiration from here:

 

http://www.projectwedding.com/forums/sunnydbride-s-diy-passport-invitations?page=2

 

This had information:

We were thinking about getting 46 invitations, boarding passes, and envelopes from here:

 

https://weddingpassports.com/passport-gallery/

 

It was almost $400 for 46 passports (!) Admittedly, 12 pages, but with shipping it probably would have been over $400.

 

So I decided to make my own.

 

I ordered stamps from here:

 

https://store.usps.com/store/browse/productDetailSingleSku.jsp?productId=S_681004

 

60 because they come in packs of 20.

 

I also ordered 60 Coastal Birds Postcard stamps. I can't link it because their site is down right now.

 

The stamps haven't arrived yet.

 

I went to FedEx Kinko's and I got proofs made, twice.

 

The first proofs, I bought a special stapler that would fit the passport invitation (from Staples). At the same time, I bought multi-colored pastel envelopes.

 

The second proofs didn't fit the stapler (which means more cutting).

 

I bought a special corner rounder.

 

My friend helped me round a lot of the corners.

 

All in all they are not perfect but I think they are fine. I don't want to pay any more to re-print them.

 

I bought a calligraphy book, pens and calligraphy paper. I figured if I do the calligraphy myself it will save money but still not look too bad. 

 

Well that's it!


Oh yes. The boarding passes are RSVPs and I will put the postcard stamps on those, except for the international guests.

 

I plan to buy a rubber stamp to stamp the back of the invitations... not sure how long that will take... may have to get one custom made here.
