DIY Passport Wedding Programs

UPDATE: Order these adorable Passport Wedding Programs for YOUR wedding at my new Etsy shop, Becky Seymour Designs!

You may remember my exciting purchase of a Print Gocco last summer. I had many elaborate plans for using the adorable Japanese screen printing machine for wedding projects. Unfortunately Adobe Illustrator and my home printer won out and the poor Print Gocco was only used once. But the results were lovely and well worth the splurge to buy it!

What IS a Print Gocco, you ask? Check it out online here.

I used mine to print the covers of my passport programs!

We designed the cover and inside pages in Adobe Illustrator. The cover I screen printed with my Gocco. The inside pages included our wedding party, ceremony outline, in memorial and a list of things to do between the ceremony and reception (always important when there is a gap!). We scattered vintage passport stamps throughout the pages. The inside pages were printed on my home computer.

My husband (then fiance!) and I had an assembly party with our DVR and a glass of wine.

And here is our finished product!

I love them! And they fit our theme so well. Success!

What size paper did you use for these? I'm hoping to do my own. I loved yours!

Becky said...

The final dimensions were 4.25x5.5 - a quarter of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

reebs said...

Hi,
Quick question, did you use normal paper or cardstock for the outer cover? I just want to make sure before I buy paper and then it doesn't work as well with the print gocco. Thank you!

Becky said...

Hi Reebs! I used an 80 pound cover weight card stock. It's a heavier paper, but still easy to fold.
