Cost of Boarding Pass Invites?
Posted 15 December 2007 - 07:28 PM
I am trying to keep my budget down and was planning on making my own invites. I love this idea and am trying to find the best (and cheapest) way to move forward with it.
So for everyone who has made them...would you mind approximating how much it cost you to make your boarding pass invites (paper/ ink/ accessories/ postage) and the time it took! And if you have any tips for those of us who are just starting them?? Thanks so much!

paper and printing from kinko's - $40
eyelets and envelopes from paper source - $25
ribbon to tie the pieces together - $5
but then i also bought a paper cutter because i will use it again and that was $40.
i made about 40 of them so they came to about $1.75 a piece.

envelopes - $15
Paper cutter - $20
Postage for them I believe was less than a dollar each.
It took a while to make them all but it was worth it in the end.

cardstock for envelope: free (1 pack from mom's work)
#10 envelopes for mailing: free again from mom's work
print at home: free
stamps: $110 i believe (we needed double postage since one of the passes doubled as a post card/reply for a prelim rsvp)
rotary cutter: $30
I don't know how many I made but I assume about 120?? I still have supplies left over (including stamps).
I guess I spent a little over a dollar for each and most of that was due to postage.

As far as costs - I think I spent about $15 on paper (plain white cardstock and blue cardstock for the holders); $40 on 2 packs of #10 red string-tie envelopes from paper presentation; $30 on the papercutter plus perforator and scorer attachments; and maybe $5 on the corner cutter?; I think postage was $0.55 each. I didn't add in the printer cartridges b/c I have them stockpiled --- and, I didn't use entire ones ... --- so definitely less than $3 a piece.
