Since graduation day is such a momentous event in your student’s life, it’s important to announce their outstanding achievement in the proper way. First and foremost you will want to start with chic graduation announcements or invitations that reflect your student’s personal style. A bold and eye-catching design adorned with several sweet senior photos will certainly make a lasting impression on friends and loved ones.
Once you’ve settled on a design, it is then time to direct your attention toward what your cards will say. While your graduation invitation wording should include specific details such as the date, time and location of the ceremony or party, announcement wording is simply meant to inform recipients of your student’s accomplishments. Also, the tone of your wording will vary based upon the education level of your grad. For example, college or high school graduation announcements should be more formal than middle school announcements.
Also, knowing when to send graduation announcements is another important detail that needs to be taken into consideration. For friends and family members who will be attending the ceremony, proper graduation announcement etiquette dictates that your correspondence should be sent at least a month before the commencement exercises take place. On the other hand, you can wait up to two weeks to mail graduation announcements to anyone who was not invited.
And to complete your grad’s big day, be sure to plan a fun-filled after party. You can inform loved ones about all the details with some stylish graduation invitations that will really get them excited for your celebration. Or if you want to do something really special and completely unexpected, throw your student a sneaky graduation surprise party that they won’t see coming.
Finally, when ordering graduation announcements and invitations from Tiny Prints, our design specialists and etiquette experts give each card personal attention so you can rest assured your student’s graduation stationery will look nothing short of stunning. This also means that you can spend more time savoring your grad’s success and less time bothering with all the minute details.
