If you’ve spent the past four years in College Station, TX, chances are you’re readying to graduate from the one and only Texas A&M University. With Shutterfly, it’s easy to make traditional college graduation announcements, including your name, school name (that’s right, Aggies), school colors (maroon and white, anyone?), a photo (or three), and even school logo. Adding school colors to your cards lends them a classic, official feel and, of course, an infusion of school spirit. Let’s get right down to it and find out how to design your very own Texas A&M graduation announcements in two simple steps.
Step 1: Choose A Template For Your Texas A&M Graduation Announcements
To make Texas A&M graduation announcements in school colors—maroon and white—you can certainly browse our full assortment of photo graduation announcements for a design template that features those color options, but the fastest and simplest way to do it is to choose from amongst our custom color grad cards, which allow you pick the exact color combination you need to show your school spirit and commemorate your college graduation. You can identify our custom color grad announcement cards by their multi-color pinwheels—located beneath each design template enabled for custom colors (see below, highlighted in yellow). But if you’ve followed the above link to our custom color grad cards, you only need select a template from all available.
Step 2: Personalize Your College Graduation Cards
Now that you have a grad card template perfect for making TAMU graduation announcements, it’s time to personalize your cards, starting with adding Aggie maroon and white. Helpful tip: in the left-hand side column of our card personalization tool (or on the bottom if you’re using the mobile site), click the Layouts option. Sometimes, alternative layouts are perfect for adding custom colors, as they provide more design space. Additionally, some layouts allow only one custom color, and others two (often better for a pair of school colors). After toggling back to the Options tab in the left-hand side column, you can now select the multi-colored Design Color pinwheel. To make classic Texas A&M graduation announcements, choose maroon and white. Finally, upload a photo (or photos for a photo collage grad card), add your name, Texas A&M, your graduation date, and anything else you’d like, including your major, honors, or GPA. You might even want to add an official Texas A&M logo to your card. If so, perhaps select a template that allows at least one additional image on your card and add the logo there. Another option is to add the logo to the photo you’re uploading—something you can do with any image editing software.
