4 Ways to Get Graduation Announcements that Rock |Prickly Pear Design Co. |graphic design & small business marketing | web & logo design



We’re getting to the end of the school year, and for all those high school seniors and soon-to-be college grads that means graduation. It takes quite a bit to manage the after party, the cap and gown, inviting guests, and figuring out the details about life after graduation.

With an ever-growing to do list, the stress levels start to increase and distract from the celebrating. I’m finding that more and more grads and their parents are opting out of the formal announcements beforehand and choosing to send online invites or call those that are invited to the ceremony and do an “after the fact” announcement, that may or may not include a party invite, instead.

It cuts down on the stress of getting it designed, printed, and mailed early enough that guests can plan accordingly, and it also allows for you to cut down on the need for an additional photo shoot, because you can easily use a photo of your graduate in their cap and gown.

I personally love these announcements. They provide more details about the grad – where they’re headed next, their contact information, and it keeps things simple so that the event can be truly celebrated.

Whether you’re choosing an “after the fact” announcement or a traditional graduation announcement that includes the ceremony details and any after party invites you can still make sure you get a grad announcement that rocks by checking out the full article on graduation announcements and invites here…
