Check out Picaboo's Stationery contest…
Picaboo (www.picaboo.com) is a premier provider of photo books, cards, calendars and more. With Picaboo, anyone with digital photos can create beautiful keepsakes. Unlike photofinishing websites, Picaboo does not force you to spend hours uploading photos before you create a project. Rather, with Picaboo installed, you can make a complete, ready-to-order book in minutes. The technology behind Picaboo is comprised of an elegant client-side application and back-end network that makes creating, sharing, buying and updating photo projects simple.
What's your vision?
Picaboo is looking to add several new Flat 5”x 7” Graduation Announcement designs to our card collection. These will be used by customers to announce the graduation of their children from high school or college/university. Designs can include photos or just have text and design elements. All designs should include space for the traditional announcement details (graduate’s name, school, class of [year], special honors). We are looking to award up to 15 winners if there are enough designs that we like so submit as many as you like. • Designs must be created in Illustrator using the attached templates. • Card designs can be portrait or landscape orientation. • Designs must be created in exact dimensions: o Portrait 1538 x 2175 • Crop zone 38 o Landscape 2175 x 1538 • Crop zone 38 • The design must bleed full to all edges. Note the crop zone area and be sure to keep important details of your design away from this area. •Keep every element separate. • Name each layer. • All layers should be submitted in AI. • If you create text as a fixed design element layer (meaning it will be the same for every customer and will not customized by the customer), it can be any font. • If you create text that will be variable and editable by the customer, you must be an allowed font. Use allowed fonts (in attached zipped list). • Create thumbnail of design in JPG format in addition to submitting the AI file. • All designs must be created in RGB. • Designs may include 1, 2, 3, or 4 photos or no photos at all. Photos can be different sizes and orientations. • Photos can be square, rectangles, circles, ovals, or hearts. Other shapes are not permitted for this contest. • Elements may overlay on top of photos.
Our customers are educated, married, working couples with children. They are sophisticated, creative, technically-minded, and artistic. Our design style is chic, clean, modern, fresh, beautiful, and unique. It is not cartoonish, quirky, old fashioned, cutesy, or busy (too many competing design elements). Themes we love for graduation announcements: School colors, full bleed photos with overlaid text, monograms, preppy. Your designs must be yours. Design elements from clip art, Pinterest, Google images or other sources will not be awarded. We are looking for great designs created by you! Need more inspiration?

It all began with a design brief.

Designers across the globe delivered design magic.
Picaboo collaborated with designers to refine their ideas
