College graduation announcements

It’s that time! Graduation day seemed so far away once upon a time, and now it’s upon us! Announce your accomplishments to your loved ones with online college graduation announcements.

No matter where you went to college or what you studied, a degree and a diploma tell you one very important thing: you did it. You made it through your final finals. You’ve checked off every requirement and you’re ready to move into the next chapter of your life, which might include a career or specialized degree. Whether you’re inviting loved ones to the ceremony itself or a post-ceremony party, you can build your college graduation announcements from either our classic Card invitation offerings, or animated Flyers (up to 50 email invites free). We’re continuously adding new designs, so we’re here to help you party and we’ll track your RSVPs.

So, what’s your graduation celebration style? If you’re browsing our Cards, popular choices include college graduation invitations featuring balloons, tassels and tinsel, and classic photo cards. If you’re looking to bring your invitation to life, browse our animated Flyers—there’s waving bunting banners, dancers, bubbly at the ready, a smoking brain, of course more tassels, tinsel, and beyond.

The thing about graduation parties, which is true for many celebrations, is that there are so many ways to celebrate. Maybe you’re hosting a BBQ or pool party in the backyard, so you incorporate flames or grilling action into your college graduation invitations. If you go with a night on the town or a day in the sand, you can pump up your guests with a design featuring a rippling glass of wine, a glistening beachside cocktail, or a bubbling bottle of beer. If you’re a dancing queen (or king!), you can go with an animation that displays some slick moves and dancing shoes. If you’re into the more classic pomp and circumstance, go with an elegant diploma or cap and gown animation. Looking for inspiration? Head to our blog for a list of imaginative event ideas.

Having a virtual ceremony, dinner, or happy hour? No problem, you can include the link to your virtual meeting room. We also make it easy to customize a design with “make your own” invitations and photo invitations. You can take advantage of the wording included with the designs or rewrite a message in your own voice. You can also edit the type spacing, pick new fonts, and choose your favorite colors for the type. The envelope is important too! You can select matching liners and digital backdrops to match your party decor, and even customize the stamp design.

Custom college graduation announcements

Suffering from decision paralysis or simply not finding a design that speaks to your vision? Good news: our Personal Design Services team is here to enthusiastically help. Whether you’re looking to put a graduate’s face on a digital cake, add customized text or work with different languages, or even modify the colors on a design to fit a particular scheme, we can create original designs to capture the personality of your newly minted grad. Don’t hesitate to contact a specialist for complimentary custom college graduation invitations for both Cards and Flyer.

Once your college graduation invitations are ready to go, you can move into the planning phase. We can help with that, too! Included with your design is built-in RSVP tracking and guest reminder messaging which helps keep everyone on time and abreast of all the important logistics. RSVP tracking is good for more than just collecting names for your list. You can also use your running guest list to plan ahead on food and beverages, gifts, and other party materials. Don’t forget to take photos and capture the memories!

So, go on and get started by picking out an invitation that shows how ready you are to be done with school. Did we mention that you can send up to 50 free email invites? Flyers and Cards are easy to personalize, and you can add animated stickers and GIFs to any of the Flyer designs. We got you covered after the party is over, too—browse our selection of online thank you notes to thank all your party people for joining your milestone celebration. Congrats, grad.
