DIY Graduation Cards

Do you have a student ready to graduate, but don’t want to pay the outrageous graduation card fees through the school? Then this DIY Graduation Cards tutorial is for you.

My son’s graduation is coming up and being the frugal mama that I am, I decided to design his graduation cards myself instead of going with a professional service. Designing and printing the cards was easy once I decided on a style. For this project, I started by logging into YORK Photo and looking through the pre-made designs. There are hundreds to choose from starting at as low as $0.29 each with envelopes this 70% OFF with coupon codeGRAD2018.

I was able to add photos, images and text for free, plus choose from glossy or matte photo paper. I chose a glossy finish for my sons Graduation Cards and I love how the two styles I created turned out. I made these two for him to review and he decided on the card without a picture of himself on it, plus he liked that it matched his school colors.

Once the design was complete, I approved it and went to the checkout area on YORK Photo where I entered my 70% off promotion with promo code GRAD2018. My total was initially $18.99, but dropped down to $5.70 + shipping after the discount.

  1. I love the red and gold version a lot! Great job Mama! I can’t wait to see what school he picks…I know you and your husband are proud.

    1. Crystal we are beyond excited. This does something for my soul. I truly feel refreshed being I homeschooled him through 5th grade. I feel like I took part in this success and am so proud of him. We will definitely announce the school one we know. We’re waiting to hear back from Princeton and Yale on the 28th.
