College or high school graduation invitations.
Use these to invite friends and family to the graduation ceremony or a celebration being hosted afterward. It’s important to clarify if the invite is for a private celebration that you’re planning, for the school’s graduation ceremony, or both. If you have a limited number of guests you can bring to the ceremony, and you need your recipients to RSVP, include that information. Get them printed and mail them, or send them digitally.

Graduation announcement cards.
A college graduation announcement is a way of letting your friends and family know you graduated and to signify your accomplishments, no event details needed. Print your announcement on high-quality card stock, and your loved ones can keep them as mementos. It’s not uncommon to frame and hang a nice photo announcement.

Who and what to include on your college graduation announcement.
Make a list of who you want to send your invitations or grad announcements to, as well as all the essential information you need to add to your design.
Create your send list.
When it comes to digital events, like graduation livestreams, the more the merrier. And if you’re creating a graduation announcement, send it out to a wide network of people; include friends, family, neighbors, teachers, and anyone who played a role in your success as a student. If you invite people to a physical event that has a limited number of seats, start with your immediate family and the people you care about most.
Remember key details.
Your invitation or announcement wording is just as important as the layout of your design and your send list. Here are some things to consider, including:
- Your full name
- The name of the school
- Your graduation year
- The degree you’re receiving
- The time and place of the digital or in-person event
- An RSVP request, if applicable
- Gift requests, if applicable
- A special message from you
