When to send college graduation invitations

The timing of your college graduation invitations is crucial for the event's turnout. Generally speaking, we suggest sending graduation invitations at least three weeks in advance. This gives guests enough time to plan, especially as some attendees may be coming from out of town and will need to make travel and accommodation arrangements. Additionally, giving people plenty of advance notice can help ensure they don't have any scheduling conflicts on the big day.

College graduation invitation wording

When sending a college graduation invitation, you need to include all relevant information about the big day. Include the name of the guest of honor, the location of the graduation ceremony, and the location of the after-party if you are throwing one as well as any specific directions for the venue. Finally, include information like the graduate’s major and any special honors so guests can make reference to their accomplishments.

Thanking people who helped along the way

When you reach a significant milestone in your life, it's important to take the time to thank all of the people who helped you get there. Whether you are thanking tutors or family members, showing appreciation to those who supported and encouraged you along the way is a lovely gesture. At Paperless Post, we offer a variety of beautiful thank you cards that are perfect for letting everyone know how much they helped you along the way. The options are endless, from elegant designs with gold accents to simple and understated cards that are ideal for expressing heartfelt gratitude!
