Custom Graduation Invitations for an Unforgettable Party
When your hard-working son or daughter makes it to graduation, the achievement is worthy of shouting from the rooftops. In your excitement, you may be tempted to invite everyone you know to the graduation celebration. However, if you are planning an after-graduation party where food is involved, you may need to be more selective about who you invite (unless you don’t mind feeding hundreds of people). Many families find that it is best to be more inclusive when inviting guests to the actual graduation ceremony, while reserving post-graduation party invitations for close friends and family.
Making a Graduation Guest List
It may be difficult to think of excluding anyone from attending the party, so we suggest taking an attitude of inclusivity rather than exclusivity when creating your invite list. Rather than writing down the names of people you do not plan to invite, focus instead on the people who mean the most to your graduate. Who will be most excited to celebrate this achievement in your son’s or daughter’s life? In most cases, only close family, friends, colleagues and perhaps bosses make it to this list.
Chances are good that your graduate will receive a fair amount of cash or gifts at the party, so be prepared by pre-ordering customized thank you notes
that can be filled out and sent in the mail after the event is over. You can design them to match the theme of your graduation invitations or go for a completely unrelated theme. Try to send the notes out no more than a few weeks after gifts are received.
Lastly, don’t get so caught up in party planning that you forget to create your own personalized gift for the special graduate in your life. As your son or daughter prepares to move out on their own, they will love being able to decorate their apartment or dorm room with customized wall décor
. You can also send them on their way with desk accessories
and personalized pillows
that will help them remember the comfort of home no matter where they may be.

"This card was easy to personalize and I paid for fast shipping and we received it within 48 hrs, perfectly printed. Great service, this is the second time I've used Tiny Prints for invitations and was happy with them both times."
May 13, 2015Exactly What I Wanted
"I am so delighted with my graduation invitations! The cards have a beautiful design and excellent quality, and the process was easy with quick delivery and a fair price. The only thing I wish I could have changed was the text boxes in the template. I would have liked to have had more flexibility with the layout. However, that is a minor detail compared to my satisfaction with the finished product and the overall experience."
May 1, 2015STUNNING!
"This invitation was for our daughter's graduation, and everything about it was elegant and stunning! The cardstock quality was VERY thick and sturdy. We opted to have the back of the card be a solid gold (as opposed to the checkerboard gold pattern that they show), and we liked it very much! The photo was bigger once we saw it in person--(as opposed to the computer screen as we were creating the order)--so it was great to see how big it was without it taking over the whole card. The gold and white lettering (and the while frame with gold corners) on the black background made the whole card "pop" and gave it a really elegant feel; plus, it was still easy to read. I felt the colors "in person" were very true to what we saw online as we were ordering, and the whole order (of 40 cards) arrived within 3 days of when we placed the order--a full TWO days ahead of when they were expected to arrive!!"
