3 Ways to Upgrade your Senior Grad Cards

Senior Grad Cards

Greater Houston high school seniors and parents, have you thought about everything you’re going to need for your pre, during, and post grad festivities? Sure, you’ve taken or at least scheduled your senior photos by now, but once January hits of your graduating year, time will fly by and before you know it, you’re panicking because you forgot to order your grad cards. YIKES. And guess what? Grad cards aren’t the only thing you may want to consider getting for your graduation festivities! 

At Amanda Holloway Photography, we LOVE senior grad card season! It’s so exciting to get new card designs in every year and see our seniors’ faces light up when they see all the awesome options they have to choose from! We really strive to offer a one of a kind collection to our seniors each year so that their grad cards can be special! We can also reassure you that none of the other photographers in the Greater Houston and The Woodlands offer our designs! Why? Because they’re proprietary to the Amanda Holloway Photography brand! This ensures that your senior cards won’t look like anyone else’s! 

What else makes our grad announcements so special? 

1. All of our cards can be CUSTOMIZED to exactly what you want! We can change the text, font, colors, and even the elements to match your outfit, school colors or college elements! We can even design a card for you from scratch! 

2. We have ALL KINDS of cards to match ALL KINDS of different personalities! Whether it’s simple and modern or whimsy and boho, we have unique designs that will help you stand out from your friends!

3. We have ENTIRE GRAD CARD COLLECTIONS that include custom cards, thank you’s, labels and seals! Why just send out one card when you can send out an entire cohesive collection?!?

And let’s talk about customization! All AHP seniors get to customize their senior cards to their heart’s desire! 

Here’s THREE favorite ways our seniors like to make their announcements their own:

1. COLOR: we can change the color on all our cards to match whatever clients want! We can match to their image outfits, their school colors, and so much more! 

2. QUOTES / SCRIPTURE: we can add any phrases or scriptures to any of our cards! This makes them so much more personal to our clients! 

3. FUTURE PLANS: let everyone know where your next adventure lies by adding your college & major aspirations to your card! 

We can also UPGRADE your announcements to the LUXE COLLECTION! With graduation comes graduation gifts, naturally! What do you plan on sending to your loved ones to let them know how much you loved their gift? Why not send beautifully custom thank you cards that match your grad cards?!? They’re a great way to send out more senior pics that didn’t make the grad announcement and such a wonderful keepsake for your friends and family too! Don’t stop there! With our luxe card collections come customized labels & seals! You’ll have the most beautiful graduation stationary your loved ones have ever seen!
