With the winter upon us, thoughts of graduation may be far away. However, it is time to start thinking about graduation announcements or graduation invitations for you or your son or daughter. By thinking ahead, you will avoid the last minute rush and allow enough time to choose the perfect announcement and get them sent out, with more than enough notice prior to the graduation.
Once the details of the graduation are announced, you can start looking for your graduation invitation. First, you will want to know what you are looking for: graduation invitations or announcements. The difference between a graduation announcement and an invitation is how it is worded. An announcement lets friends and family know that you or your son or daughter is graduating, or has graduated. These can be mailed shortly before or after the actual graduation takes place. The purpose is to simply inform the recipients that the person has graduated from high school, college or higher education. Therefore, when choosing the wording for your announcement, you should include the name of the person who is graduating, what school they are graduating from, their degree (if applicable), the date of the graduation and the location of their school.
On the other hand, you may be looking for a graduation invitation if you are inviting guests to attend an event, such as a party, open house or dinner. When you choose wording for your invitation, be sure to include the name of the person who is graduating, the date, time and location of the ceremony. If you are hosting a post-graduation event, you may want to consider adding a reception card with this information as well.
Choosing the style of your graduation invitation or announcement can be easily overwhelming, so the best solution is to give yourself plenty of time.
