What Is a Boarding Pass Invitation?
A boarding pass invitation is basically an invitation card meant to inform readers that they are expected to attend an event such as a birthday or a wedding. The only difference with this invitation card is that it is meant to resemble a boarding pass that is commonly seen when traveling by airplane or cruise ship. Other than that, a boarding pass invitation's content is similar to any invitation card wherein it simply provides the reader with details about the event.
How to Create a Boarding Pass Invitation?
Just because the theme of the event isn't formal, it doesn't mean you should take the boarding pass invites for granted.

1. Gather ideas about boarding passes and invitations
Most of us are already familiar with printable invitations, what's on them, and what they're for, but do we have the same knowledge about boarding passes? Although it's not necessary, you might want to make your invites look legit. Gather all the ideas you can from other boarding pass invitations, you might even want to get inspiration from actual boarding passes. Doing this can actually capture the attention of people very easily.
2. Outline the information related to the event
After getting the necessary inspiration from boarding passes and sample invitation cards (and also figuring out how you can incorporate themes into each other), you can start outlining the needed content that will be added to your boarding pass invitation. These details should be relevant to the event which include the host's name or title of the event, the date and time, the address of the venue, the host's contact details, and the RSVP.
3. Start writing the content of the invitation
By using a word processing application of your choice, you can start writing the content of the simple invitation. Aside from the details being outlined, you can also add more content that will actually complement the invitation card. One of the details that you can add is the invitation statement, which is a narrative message expressing the host's desire of wanting the reader to actually be present during the gathering. If you're making an RSVP (which you should), you should also write a short message with it.
4. Enhance the design by adding graphics
Most modern invitations may actually have no photos on them and boarding passes only contain text, you can choose to enhance the design of your boarding pass invites by adding photos or illustrations. Of course, your graphical elements should always be appropriate and relevant to the theme of the invitation or the event. If the invitation is meant to be used for a wedding, then you may add a photo of the couple on the front side or cover page.

While you can always save yourself time by getting your invitations printed by professionals, you can also do it yourself, just make sure to use high-quality card stock.
