Boarding pass wedding invitations are ideal when you have guests that will be traveling to your wedding — it can be a destination wedding or something local with out-of-town guests. Your custom boarding pass wedding invitation should coordinate with your wedding colors and incorporate elements of your wedding theme — starfish, sand dollars or perhaps an elegant damask design. Our boarding pass wedding invitations can be vintage, modern or retro and are modeled after an actual air plane ticket.
THE BOARDING PASS CARDSTOCK: We do not print metallic inks or do any gold foil with our Boarding Passes, we can print metallic/shimmer cardstocks and papers, which gives the appearance of metallic ink. The metallic cardstock has a slightly shimmery finish, the more ink coverage, or the darker the inks, the less apparent the shimmer is. We can also print on a matte cardstock, which is great if you’re wanting more of a vintage look. Either option — metallic/shimmer or matte will look great! Both stocks are a heavy 110 lb cover weight.
THE BOARDING PASS SLEEVE CARDSTOCK: We can create single-fold or double-fold boarding pass sleeves. We can print on both options, however the color of the printing must be darker than the color of the sleeve for guests to be able to read it (for example, if you select a kraft brown sleeve, the text must be black, dark gray or dark brown to be seen). The double-fold sleeve is printed on both sides, so you can provide your guests with additional wedding details. Since both types of sleeves are cut and folded, they are a lighter weight paper than the boarding pass invitation. Both types of sleeves can be metallic/shimmer or matte, depending on the overall look you’d like.
THE BOARDING PASS JACKET: Your boarding pass invitation slides into the short end of the jacket, more like an enclosure invitation. Boarding pass jackets cannot be printed. They are available in matte or shimmer heavy 110 lb cover weight.
INK COLORS: All of our inks are custom, so please provide swatches or inspiration boards if you want a specific color scheme – we can match to almost any color. You can email us the inspiration boards or color ideas to us with your design questionnaire and template.
ENVELOPE COLORS: Envelope colors can be matte or shimmer, depending on what matches your colors the best. When designing your invite we can recommend your best options or you can select a color from the options available.
RSVP (if applicable): Your RSVP can be a travel postcard or luggage tag (templates for these are also in the Client Resource Center).
ROUNDED CORNDERS: Rounded corners are included for every boarding pass — there is no extra production cost to have the corners rounded.
MAPS: We can provide any maps – you do not need to provide this in the template unless you have a specific map you would like us to use.
SEAT NUMBER: This section is to help replicate the look of a real boarding pass and is typically your wedding date with the first initial of your last name. Sorry, we do NOT know your guests’ seat numbers and cannot change this for every boarding pass invitation in your order.
EMBELLISHMENTS: You can certainly add embellishments to your boarding pass wedding invitations! Several of the boarding pass wedding invitations on our site are pictured with embellishments — such as raffia and a wooden charm.
One last thing… we can create a boarding pass invitation for any type of event — retirement party, birthday party or even a save the date!
