Graduation Announcements

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

She did it…she graduated!  Graduation season is well underway and now is the time to pick up your last minute graduation invitations and graduation announcements so that they’re ready to send just as she tosses her cap.  Graduation announcements are a great way to share the news of your student’s graduation with family, friends, co-workers and neighbors.  It’s also a great way to let your family members from afar share in on your celebration, as they may live too far away to attend a graduation party for your son or daughter.

Graduation announcements should be sent out on the day of your child’s graduation or within a few weeks after the graduation…so if you’re late on the ball, you still have plenty of time to order your graduation announcements!  Your graduation announcement should include the parents names of the graduating student, the lucky graduate’s name as well as the school she is graduating from.  If your child is continuing their education in the fall at a college, grad school or university, you may also want to include information about the new school they’ll be attending in the fall.

Need to double your graduation announcement as an invitation as well?  No worries.  Announce the graduate’s graduation at the top of the card followed by a few lines inviting your guests to celebrate with you just after the graduation.  Be sure to include a time, date and location of your graduation party.  We’ve seen a lot of orders come in lately missing the party location, and this is an essential part of your graduation announcement and invitation.  If nobody knows where the party is, how will they know where to go to celebrate?  Not everyone remembers your street address!

When choosing the perfect graduation announcement, you’ll have many options to choose from.  Our designers have compiled specific designs for boy graduation, girl graduation and Class of ’11 graduation.  We also offer graduation announcements with school colors so that the graduate can share their school pride.  Want to share a photograph of the graduate to show how much they’ve grown over the years?  We also have an abundant collection of graduation photo cards which feature your graduation details along with your digital photograph.  If your son or daughter is graduating from a medical, dental, nursing or law school, we also have career specific graduation announcements to help you commemorate.
