VIP Badge passes and Invites PARTY STORE tutorial

I love love this!!! What a original way to hand out invites... I also carry just the VIP passes for party favors!! Choose between invites or passes. These come  in any design and style!! BOYS OR GIRLS!
Please do not give to toddlers or infants because of the strap!!

Use for Party invites or hand out as VIP pass Favors!!!

Each designs comes on a 8.5 x 11 JPEG page. You get 8 passes to a page!! If ordering invites you will get 4 invites (front and back) to a page!
Print on photo glossy or matte paper. Glossy Card stock looks great!!

Find all invites or just vip passes on my website at

Home Printing

The full printing looks best printed on photo glossy or matte paper. It gives the best quality and weight.
8.5 x 11 JPEG format at 300 dpi.
I have two papers I love
The dollar tree paper works wonderful if you want a glossy beautiful image. (I know..DOLLAR TREE...It is fantastic!) The dollar tree paper also has blank on the back!
 Kodak gloss paper works great. It prints perfect. Not  glossy, but with the perfect amount of shine for crystal clear images...They also have the perfect amount of thickness for a nice professional looking print. 
These can also be printed at your local printing center that prints on full sheets such as 
(Kinkos...Office max....Staples..etc...on glossy card stock looks great.....)

These are to print and add to the plastic. You only need the plastic insert. How EASY PEAZY.
You can print these at any copy center that prints on cardstock ( depot..or home printing) Just remember that any laser printer will print darker than screen on page and I would use a glossy or matte card stock!

I do not print back to back. It is super easy for the paper to shift and not be perfectly even. It is why I advise to cut and line back to back.

I only use one size of VIP pass. This can not be altered without asking first. This is the most common size of VIP pass. They can be found in office supply stores, walmart, hobby stores, and is the most common size. 

These are made for the AVERY 3 x 4 lanyard plastic badge. I buy the generic version at Walmart. *in the stationary/office supply area*  The plastic pieces are 3 x 4.  When printed each insert is  2 1/4 by 3 1/2. They are made to fit inside the plastic pieces.  They are the same size as the printable tags for Avery inserts. You need the VERTICAL size 3 x 4 size. (12 pack at walmart for 1.88)or the Avery 3x4 size *vertical size* found in office supply store.

Lanyards can be expensive. So use ribbon as an alternate for your badges!!

Find invites and passes at

You can also find my valentine VIP passes. Great for Valentine's Day

Just print, cut, and add back to back in your vertical badge! Print on glossy or matte photo paper for best quality!!
You only have to print one sheet for 4 invites or 8 VIP passes to hand out as favors. How awesome is that!!!
