@birdy88:  I would highly recommend using photoshop or InDesign or basically anything other than word.  I think Adobe does a free 30 day trial.  This is a boarding pass invite that I did for funsies (we ended up doing something different) using those programs to make the template.

@birdy88:  Well I have zero graphic design training, so I figured everything out on my own (I’m not particularly techy either).  Do you have an idea of what you want?

@birdy88:  Using InDesign or Photoshop it really wouldn’t be hard.  adobe does 30 Day Free trials.  The biggest advice I can give you is managing the layers on something like what you’re proposing and making sure you label/name them.

@birdy88:  I did not make those . I thought they were nice. They were posted by another bee. You can get info from the link.

@birdy88:  Since what you’ve picked is mostly text, you could probably do the majority of it in InDesign.  I honestly think the most difficult part about this would be the thinking of what to write.  Do you know your wedding colors?

@birdy88: I did baseball ticket invitations, but I’m at work and don’t have the template on me. I can certainly post it when I get home and you can let me know whether it will work. EDIT: I based my ticket loosely off of the one you posted.

I used Photoshop, and I’ve used Photoshop for over 10 years, but I was a rookie when I started.

@birdy88: We had a baseball themed wedding, so I created the invitations from scratch in Photoshop. It’s not exactly the same at the Ticketmaster one you posted, but it’s a start at least.

If you want more information on sizing, our envelope, cardstock, printing etc, let me know, either here or with a PM. I have all of the raw files that I can send you and you can manipulate them. 

Also, here is a decent font that looks similar to the Ticketmaster font: http://www.dafont.com/fake-receipt.font

@birdy88:  Wow, that’s wicked. I’d suggest you study a ticketmaster ticket real well. Find fonts that closely resemble the ones used and use your wedding colors in place of ticketmaster’s yellow and blue. Use Photoshop to create the layout of the card and Illustrator or InDesign to lay out the text.

@birdy88:  Definitely use Illustrator as opposed to InDesign or Photoshop.  If you have specific images you need to use/tweak, you could always use Photoshop and them import them into Illustrator once they’re how you need them.

Illustrator is a vector based program, as opposed to Photoshop which is a bitmap based program.  When you make things in vector, they are much crisper and can be scaled indefinitely without losing quality.

InDesign is similar to Illustrator but is more suited for laying out books and multi-page documents.
