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 20, 2015Beautiful Csrd, Well Done
"We were impressed with the selection Tiny Prints offered, and decided on a fun and yet sophisticated card. Personalizing the cerd was simple and straight forward from changing the name font and size to uploadng and positioning the photograph. The option to have Tiny Prints mail the cards to their recipients was a bonus. The price and quality were excellent, and the price was made even better by promotions that saved us more money. Also, we had announcemets made which were equally as beautiful, and they arrived on the day expected. We would definitely use Tiny Prints again."

"I was looking for an invitation that was fitting for my sons Trunk party (going off to college). Since, I couldn't find anything like that I decided to go with his school colors and this was perfect."
May 27, 2013Quick and Elegant INvitation
"I chose studio basics for a graduation invitation that I needed to turn around quickly without sacrificing style, and wow, did I hit the jackpot. The design was sleek and elegant and the personalization with four photos made the high school graduation invitation a memento for recipients and my family."

May 6, 2012Perfect card
"I haven't sent out the Graduation invitiation but I can only say that on 3 different occasions on the day I felt I had to get the card ordered that all TinyPrint staff members were helpful, knowledgeable and creative. One of the first members I dealt with I believe that was Daniel who was able to take the picture of my daughter which happened to be with her younger sister and crop it and take her out of the picture so I had a solo shot of the graduate. The picture turned out amazing. I have used your company for the last 2 years for Christmas cards and I can only say all my cards going forward will be from tiny prints. Again, thank you and your staff. They can answer any question and are most pleasant on the phone."
