Cards & Invitations

Share news with stakeholders and customers. With custom greeting cards, give your announcement the gusto it deserves and reconnect with recipients.

Encourage Connection

Custom cards and invitations build personal connections with your stakeholders, customers, and potential new clients. When you share news, send warm wishes, or promote an event with a printed card or invitation, it’s more likely to make an impact than an Instagram post or email. To increase engagement, boost excitement, and encourage recipients to mark their calendars, give your announcement the spotlight it deserves with custom cards or invitations.

Avalon Apartments Parking Pass Project

The leasing office at Avalon Apartments reached out to AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington and asked us to redesign their parking passes. We used die-cutting and sequential numbering. The cards are 3.5" x 8.66" and printed on a 65# cardstock. The new parking passes created a more orderly and efficient parking situation at the apartment complex.

Customer Project: RAW Athletics

Raw Athletics has a cool product that they wanted to market to all the different gym franchises. They wanted to do a personalized mailing called versioning. 
Each franchise they targeted received the same postcard, but the different franchises had a special coupon code just for their franchise. Attached are two different cards with different coupon codes, along with the mailing panel that was the same for all the cards.

Quinceanera Invites and Party Favors

Alma Amaya has been a long-time employee of AlphaGraphics—over 18yrs. So long that we have seen her children grow up through the years and reach many milestones.

As a Graphic Designer, she was able to bring her creativeness to life by creating the vision she had for her daughter’s long awaited Quinceañera Party.

Her theme was “Enchanted Forest” and she was finally happy to be able to use her resources at AlphaGraphics and get creative her own way. She designed all the artwork and all of it was printed in house.

  • Stickers for Party Favor Tags
  • Small “Message in a bottle” notes that were inserted into tiny glass jars
  • Signs: Outdoor Banner, COVID Poster, Signature Poster, Seating Poster, and Floor Graphic
  • Invite Package: Metallic backing for invite, Invitation, Reply Cards, COVID note cards, Translucent Vellum Sheets
  • Table Place Cards

A Quinceañera, also known as a Sweet Fifteen, is an event that symbolizes a little girl stepping into the shoes of a young woman. It is a time where family and friends can gather and celebrate a milestone such as turning 15 for a young lady.

Most of these celebrations are meant to honor the young woman turning 15 years of age because she has respected herself and done well in her studies. Quinceañeras are mostly celebrated by Central America with each country having a slight variation in traditions.




Paintings into Postcards Project

For this project, the client is a local artist who has been working with AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington for many years. We were tasked with taking over 40 of her original paintings and turning them into beautifully crafted notecards.

Client Project: Senior Services of Alexandria

For over 20 years, AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington has printed everything for Senior Services of Alexandria. This project is an invitation to their annual meeting. We design\layout an invitation, reply cards, reply, and carrier\invitation envelopes. 

Since SSA is a non-profit organization, we printed the envelopes in black ink to save costs, while the invitation and reply cards were printed in full color. 

SSA mails the invitation themselves.
