Graduation is right around the corner. Every senior in the country is counting the days and making plans to celebrate.
Here at JG Imprinters, we want to make sure you have everything you need to make that celebration as memorable as those seniors are dreaming it can be.
Graduation Invitations and Graduation Announcements
Gathering the family together for a celebration takes plenty of planning so be sure to order your graduation party invitations early.
Graduation party invitations should be sent three to four weeks before the party. You should give your guests plenty of time to RSVP and make any necessary travel arrangements.
Include an RSVP card if you plan to have the party catered and send the invitations earlier to give the guests time to respond.
Graduation announcements should be sent directly following the ceremony. Graduation etiquette dictates that announcements should never be emailed. This is a formal event and requires a formal announcement.
Unlike the party invitations, you donʼt have to be selective about whom you send an announcement to. Graduation is something to be shared and celebrated.
You should plan on sending announcements to all your relatives, friends and associates.
Donʼt forget to order stamps and envelope seals. Customized postage stamps that feature the graduateʼs picture will grab attention and become a keepsake. Envelope seals and labels will add a personalized touch of class to your invitations and graduation announcements.
Gear up for the Graduation Party
Give your graduate a party they wonʼt forget with plenty of personalization. You can have all of your party favors printed with the graduateʼs name, congratulations or any other special message.
Here are just a few suggestions of customizable items to look for to get you started:
- Plastic Silverware
It is customary to put together a scrapbook or picture board to honor a graduate. You can turn your pictures into an impressive keepsake display by having them printed on a vinyl banner instead. The banner will make an impressive display at the party, and it can be easily stored away for later. Make one banner for high school graduation and another for college. When you place them both side by side it will create a fantastic display that will get people talking.
Thank You Cards
Thank You Cards are just as important as invitations and announcements. Your graduate should write a personal note to say thank you for every gift they receive. This will not only let family and friends know how much they are appreciated, but it is also great training in etiquette for the business world that your graduate will soon be jumping into. Thank you cards should be sent no later than two weeks after graduation or immediately after the gift is received.
