Frequently asked questions

Simply put, graduation stationery is all the stationery needed to announce or celebrate a student completing their studies. In addition to formal graduation announcements, it includes invitations for the official ceremony plus any party you may throw.

It also includes thank you cards – we highly recommend sending these to anyone who attends the party or gives gifts. (Pro tip: Having younger grads send thank you cards is a great lesson in adulting.)

In general, graduation announcements are for sharing the grad's achievement with family and friends, while invitations are more about inviting folks to attend the ceremony or celebration. Here's a rundown of what information you might want to include on both graduation announcements and invitations:

Graduation Announcements:

  • The graduate's name
  • The name of the school or university they are graduating from
  • The degree earned (if applicable)
  • The date of graduation
  • Any special honors or awards received

Graduation Invitations:

  • The graduate's name
  • The name of the school or university they are graduating from
  • The date, time and location of the graduation ceremony or event
  • RSVP details (if necessary)
  • Any additional information or instructions for guests to keep in mind regarding the event

This timing for sending graduation announcements and invitations can vary depending on your specific circumstances and preferences. Here are some general tips for when to share the exciting news or invite loved ones to join in:

Graduation Announcements: Since graduation announcements are typically sent to inform rather than to invite, you can send them before or after the ceremony. However, it's common to send graduation announcements after the grad has officially walked across the stage, turned their tassel, received their diploma – all that good stuff.

Graduation Invitations: If there's an upcoming graduation that you want people to attend, it's important to send out invites with sufficient notice. For high school graduations, we recommend sending out invitations at least 4-6 weeks in advance. For college or university graduations, send your invites out a bit earlier – 6-8 weeks in advance. Since college graduations often involve more out-of-town travel, spreading the word with ample notice can help guarantee no one misses the special occasion.

Deciding on the guest list for a graduation party will depend on a variety of factors, like the size of the venue and personal preferences. However, aside from the obvious guests like immediate family, extended family and close friends, you may want to consider other people that have been influential throughout the grad's academic journey. This can include any teachers, mentors, coaches or community members. After all, a graduation party isn't just a celebration of personal achievement, but also a tribute to the supportive network that's been there along the way.

Money is by far the most popular gift. That said, it’s nice to give something a liiiittle more personal. We recommend a crisp photo book, full of feel-good pictures and moments they can flip through. Or, if the grad is headed off to college, create some custom décor, like a soft blanket or pillow to keep on their dorm bed.

The depends on the type of party you’re throwing – a large backyard barbecue calls for different supplies, than say, an intimate gathering with the besties. That said, here are a few essentials to get you started:

Food & drinks: That could mean a few apps or a catered feast depending on the party. Either way, be sure guests have something to nosh on – no wants to be a hangry partygoer.

Plates, cutlery & serveware: Having food means guests need a way to eat it. Oh, and don’t forget trays, platters and bowls for serving!

Décor: Even small touches go a long way. Streamers and a few well-placed balloons are great for cozier gatherings. For big celebrations, consider a bold banner for some color or a foam sign to mark the gift pile.

Cleaning supplies: They’re not exactly fun, but they’re life-savers for during and after the party. Extra paper towels, for example, are mighty handy for surprise spills.

There are so many ways to celebrate this occasion – one of the most traditional is a graduation party. If you go this route, feel free to really do it up! Hang signs and banners featuring the grad’s portrait. Create an entire party look with matching supplies: think cocktail napkins, gift bags, balloons and more. And of course, no party is complete without gifts.
