Composite Design Tips
1. Composite Background and Borders
Choosing colors can be tricky without any guidelines or tips. We recommend that you reference previous composites or use your organization’s branding colors. Get hex color codes for your background and border colors. Enter the hex colors into myGYB to ensure the perfect color match for your sorority or fraternity composite. Also, make sure you choose contrasting colors for your background color and border color so the border stands out as a nice enhancing detail.
2. Photo Shapes, Border Options, and Drop Shadows
We offer four different photo shapes for your composite: rectangle, rounded rectangle, oval, or octagon. Most sororities choose an oval shape for their composite and fraternities often choose to use a rectangle or octagon. Photo borders are nice options to contour each photo, or you can go without a border for a modern clean look. Drop Shadows are also a nice option that can add some dimension to your composite.
The fonts you choose for your sorority composite or fraternity composite will affect the look, feel, and readability. We recommend that you choose a more detailed and intricate font for large focal points, like your Organization Name, University, and Year. Then you can choose clean simple fonts for your chapter name, founded date, member names, and titles.
4. Matting and Framing
It is always good to plan where your new composite will be hung and choose matting and framing accordingly. If your new composite is going to be hung next to other composites in your sorority house or fraternity house, then choose a frame to match. Also, consider the decor and style of the room where your new composite will be hung! Custom composite matting is a recommended upgrade that adds a touch of class to your composite. And we offer a wide variety of frames, from classic to contemporary, to fit the look you’re going for.
With all of the design options available to you, we want you to feel confident and in control when creating your composite. And with myGYB, you can be in touch with your designer directly and get any questions answered. We are always committed to helping our customers receive gorgeous composites that represent their sorority and fraternity traditions.
Hello, my name is Tyler Blitz. My friends and I are looking to make a composite, however we are not affiliated with the school’s chapter. Is there a possibility if I were to collect the photos and send them over to you guys, you would be able to simply place them in the template with all of the other amenities? Also, would I be able to get a price quote for this, given its possible. Thank you so much for your help.
Hi Tyler, thank you for your comment! Our Business Development Manager will be in touch soon!

Hi! I would like to create this for a class of 74 nursing students. Could you please email me with a cost estimate for a photo and frame to be placed in our hall of nursing classes? Could you do something framed as small as 8×10? Or what sizes could be available? What if students wanted to purchase the photo of their class- how much would individual photos of the class cost please?
