Graduation Etiquette // When to send what?

Graduation day is tough for adults. They go to the ceremony as parents. They come home as contemporaries. After twenty-two years of child-raising, they are unemployed. ~Erma Bombeck 

Graduation is an exciting and sometimes very hard time for parents! Our son graduated last Spring and he has almost completed his first year of college! How time flies. After graduation, it was wonderful to have all of our family and friends gather together to celebrate his huge accomplishment. And, it was a big deal, since both his dad and I were unable to finish high school. I was so excited to throw a big celebration for him at the local park. 

Tiny Prints Graduation Announcements and Invitations

The Tiny Prints Graduation Announcements that I ordered for our son’s party turned out just beautifully! There were so many options to choose from, so it took me a few days to pick just one out of the 300 different graduation card designs! The card I chose was perfect though — it really helped set the whole theme for the party.

I was so pleased with how easy it was to customize the cards with pictures of our proud graduate! It was simple to coordinate the cards with the school colors by choosing the font and colors for the cards as well. Are you unsure about when to get started with your son or daughter’s graduation celebration? Tiny Prints created this simple guide, so you’ll be prepared for the big day!

A great guide on when to send graduation announcements, invitations and thank you cards!

    I think graduation notices are so fun to make (and they’re one of my favorite keepsakes from my older two kiddos). It’s such a huge milestone, that finding the perfect way to announce it makes my heart happy. :) I will def. keep Tiny Prints in mind for future printing needs, the examples you showed look great. It’s awesome that your son’s in higher ed. now. My oldest is enrolled and doing military duty. The second oldest, I guess is just not ready yet. No pressure from me, I want him to be ready if he does decide to go. :)

    I did a graduation last year and have to do another one next year. I’m pinning this for later. Thanks for sharing.
