Graduation Announcements 101

What Are Graduation Announcements?

The purpose of a graduation announcement is to inform your friends and family of your success. The inevitable presents that follow are just a happy bonus.

When to Send Graduation Announcements

Etiquette dictates that graduation announcements be sent approximately one month to two weeks prior to graduation. This means that the design and printing should probably start somewhere around two months prior to graduation.

What to Include in Your Graduation Announcements

Graduation announcements are a formal affair.

  1. Language: Include your full name, graduation year (i.e. “Class of 2015”), name of college, and date of graduation.
  2. Outer Envelope: This is the mailing envelope. It should be hand-addressed using black or blue ink and should be formal.
  3. Inner Envelope: The inner envelope holds the actual announcement, graduation picture, etc. This envelope should be informally addressed by hand.

How Much Should I Spend?

This all depends on two things. 1) How many announcements do you plan on sending? This is entirely up to you, but should include close family members and friends. The general rule is don’t send a graduation announcement to anyone you or your family wouldn’t send a holiday card to. 2) Design: there’s a multitude of options and choices to suit every budget and personality. The choice is yours.
