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 11, 2015Senior Invites
"I have gotten so many compliments on the invitations for my sons upcoming graduation. I love the design and the ease in making the invitation so personal."
November 17, 2014Awesome!
"I chose this card design because of the amount of photos I was able to use on the front. It came out great! My only tweak would be to have the card fold from the top instead of from the side, since it is so long. Other than that, I loved it! Photo quality and card quality was awesome."
May 13, 2014Exactly What I Needed
"Bought this party invitation to slip into my sons graduation announcements. Saved postage from a second mailing. Tiny Prints was awesome. I added a note asking if colors could be changed so invitation would match school colors. They not only did that, but gave me an opportunity to review the changes before they went to print. I will definitely use Tiny Prints for future printing needs."
April 26, 2014The Best
"I absolutely loved the way my graduation invitations turned out. They were exactly what I wanted and ordered. I received so many compliments on them and they brought my mom to tears. I wanted to do something with a ton of pictures for me to sum up my undergrad from college. The invitations did just that. I will be ordering from here from now on."
June 18, 2013Nice Card
"I receive my order on time and I am pleased with the results as well. The card invite is perfect and color combination is also nice and give a sense of casual-formal invite. I got a lot of nice complements and asks where and who made this card. I definitely recommend this Dapper Diploma Postcards!!"
