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.
Customer reviews of our Graduation Party Invitations & Graduation Cards
May 10, 2015Great for Party Invites!
"These cards turned out beautifully! We wanted to personalize them to use for our son's high school graduation party and it was so easy. We uploaded our favorite picture, tweeked the text a little, and we were done. I asked to change the font to match the font on our return address envelopes, and they did it no questions--fast and easy. I loved all the editing options and found them very easy to use. There are plenty of opportunities to review the final version before you order and to get proofs before they go to print. Customer service was prompt and so friendly, and shipping was really fast. Our invitations arrived in perfect order, packed with care. I'll definitely order again. We were thrilled with the beautiful quality and excellent service provided by Tiny Prints."

"Since I ordered a couple hundred dollars' worth of product, I was nervous. But these printed graduation announcements were so beautiful, and the text printed so well, I don't have one negative thing to say. I love the opportunities for personalization you gave me for these - we can now share each child's story and plans with those we love."
