Custom Grad Announcements
A graduation is one of the most exciting events of a lifetime, and symbolizes the culmination of years of dedication and hard work. Such a monumental event deserves to be celebrated with the people who mean most to the graduate. Here are a few tips for planning a graduation party from start to finish. If you'd like to check out our comprehensive graduation party planning guide, click here
1. Select and Send Invitations
Once you know the date and time of the graduation event, you can plan when and where to hold the party and send out invitations. If possible, choose invitations that match the style and theme of your graduation announcements. This extra touch will not only impress guests, but will make also make it easier to arrange the two complementary announcements on the same scrapbooking page as a keepsake.
2. Decorate With the Theme in Mind
Rather than haphazardly throwing together random napkins, tablecloths and other party decorations, choose a color and style theme and find decorations that fit in with your theme. For example, if you choose a sophisticated black and gold color theme for the new graduate, our Splendid Divide
graduation announcements would look great paired with one of our black personalized napkins
decorated in gold print. Gold and black balloons can help tie everything together and complete the festive appearance of your event.
3. Plan Your Menu
No graduation party is complete without at least a few snacks. If you want to minimize your stress for the upcoming event, easy appetizers like pork sliders, chips and dip, and bruschetta are simple to make and require minimal time and stress. If your party falls during lunch or dinner hours, prepare something more substantial but still simple. Sandwiches, taco bars, pizzas and salad bars are all easy options that will keep your guests happy without taking too much of your time.
4. Don’t Forget Gifts!

Customer reviews of our Photo Graduation Announcements & Custom Graduation Invitations
June 3, 2015Grad Announcement
"The announcements came out wonderful. I was able to use my son's school colors. The paper quality was awesome! 100% satisfaction"
May 17, 2015Exceeded Expectations!
"I recently ordered Photo Graduation Cards for my son who is graduating high school. The design process was extremely user-friendly, and there were so many options to choose from. I was able to design several different cards with different pictures and I loved the "compare" feature where I could choose and compare my designs and easily scroll between my options. Because I had such a small amount of text on my card, I felt confident in choosing the option of sending it straight to print, without having someone proof it before it was printed which allowed for a quicker turnaround time. The card arrived when I expected it, and it was beautiful!! There is a nice weight to the card, and clear sharp photo quality. It really exceeded my expectations! Thank you!!"

"This was the easiest site to use and the best product I could have used! Very, very, very happy with this company and my product!"
April 26, 2015Nice, Simple Card
"I personally used the default flower colors, as the other colors didn't seem natural to me. The printing was beautiful, the design is simple but artsy, and the little pattern on the back of the card was just adorable! The only problem I have with this product is the card material. The pictures lead me to believe that it would have a bit more texture, and the options to change the card material where not very descriptive. Over all a great buy, will definitely be recommending it in the future!"

"My school's graduation invitations were so expensive and all of my friends bought them. They were plain and simple with only words, but I was able to buy my invitations from this site with my own picture and the cute fonts that they have available for way less than the boring invitations my school was selling."
