When it comes time to address graduation announcements, the standards can been overwhelming. Start by choosing a design that fits your personality. A graduation announcement is less tied to the decorum of including school colors and emblems - you're free to do something fun, quirky and creative.
Once you've found the graduation announcement that you love, be sure to gather a list of people and addresses. You may want to consider sending your announcements to people who did not attend your ceremony, but you might also want to still send one to parents and grandparents as a keepsake.
A few quick tips for sending graduation announcements:
1. Show off your tassel. Customizing your graduation announcement with a photo turns your card into a keepsake.
2. Use recipient addressing services. Minted's complimentary envelope addressing will help you avoid spelling errors and give you an announcement that's fun to open. The names on our outer envelope should always be spelled out formally. You should use informal addressing only on the inner envelope.
3. Give gifting options. If you prefer not to receive any, its okay to say "please, no gifts" on your announcements!
