6 Must-Haves for an Amazing Graduation Celebration
Graduation is a monumental event; it's essentially a rite of passage into adulthood, where work replaces school and priorities begin to shift.
And that means it's definitely worth celebrating.
With the right tools, you can pull off the most memorable celebration of all time - and set your favorite grad up for made to order success.
This list of 6 must-haves for grads this year will get you on-track.
1. Graduation Announcements
Let everyone know that your favorite graduate has made it through years of grueling study and come out on top with made to order graduation announcements designed to highlight this tremendous accomplishment. Choose a collage layout filled with senior picture poses or pick a single-photo layout with elegant foil accents, an ultra-modern font or a fun, fresh design. To really stand out, select a magnetic graduation announcement.
2. Graduation Invitations
Bring everyone together for the celebration of the year with custom graduation invitations that coordinate with your announcements to include all the important details. Choose something that matches your grad's style, right down to the font, whether it's a collage or a single photo with text overlay. Pick from traditional rectangular invitations, square, round and even ticket-shaped invites that are sure to wow your guests-to-be.
3. Graduation Books
Give your grad the gift of reliving years of friendship, special events and educational pursuits with a personalized graduation book. These beautiful mementos make excellent gifts from family or friends, and they're even better when you pass them around the graduation party so everyone can add a note or a fond memory.
4. Acrylic Blocks or Metal Prints
Add style to every table (or just the gift table) with custom acrylic prints that your grad can take home. Photos of friends and family sharing special memories are ideal because they make great decorative pieces in the grad's new dorm room, apartment or house. Metal photo prints are amazing, too, and you can display them on easels or the wall - and there are even curved prints for tabletop display.
5. Photo Prints
Upload photos from your phone, tablet, laptop or desktop to create beautifully colorful photo prints you can share with guests in a scrapbook or display at the graduation party. Either way, you or the grad will have a series of great pictures as mementos.
6. Thank-You Cards for Graduation
Say "thanks for everything" with themed, personalized graduation thank-you cards straight from the grad. Add photos and text to a foil card, a flat or folded card, or one with a unique shape that recipients will really remember. The right thank-you cards are memorable - especially because they're a great ice-breaker for networking.
