    A Few Things You Might Not Know About Graceway Media

    When you consider our library of over 12,000 graphics, it’s no surprise why thousands of churches use Graceway to fill their design needs. But there are a few things our “power users” have figured out that make their memberships even more valuable.

    Click Here to learn more about memberships.

    See a visual you really like, or a sermon title that almost says what you want it to say? Download the Photoshop (or After Effects) project files and tweak away. For Unlimited or Graceway + Igniter users only.


    Scared of Photoshop? Or maybe you just have more important things to spend your time on? We have a team of designers that can tweak the text on any of our stills or motions so you don’t have to.

    Just click the “Retitle” button on the design’s detail page and let us know what you want to change. Available to any paid member via the purchase of credits. (Unlimited and Graceway + Igniter memberships include 5 credits to start).



    A Graceway membership can help you beautify your screens, but even if you’re not a member, we can also help you beautify your church’s physical space! We can turn any of our designs (or your designs, for that matter) into a banner. These are our most popular banner formats:

    Prices start at $64, which includes a “retitle” of the banner text, and again ANYONE can order a banner (even if you’re not a member)! But if you become a member, you can get 10% off your banner order when you mention code BANNER10.

    These are just a few of the add-on benefits of membership. One of our members said it best: “It's like having a full time graphics artist on staff for $399 a year.” 

    So what are you waiting for?
