Choosing a photo for your high school graduation announcement

In this digital age, we all have plenty of photographs, and it can be hard to select which one(s) to feature on your high school graduation announcement. Here are some popular options to consider when selecting a graduation announcement photo:

  • A spoonful of nostalgia - Feeling a little nostalgic thinking back over your fondest memories? Consider choosing a template that will allow for two photos, add one from when they first started high school and a second more recent one. For a seamless look, why not try and recreate the first picture, find a similar outfit, head to the exact location, and get them to strike the same pose as their younger self did? This will provide the perfect opportunity to show how much they have grown over the years!
  • Silly shots - Looking for something that will show off a slice of their true personality? Why not select a goofy photo? It can be anything from a picture of them pulling a silly face or an accidental image that caught them off guard. Pair it with a template that features charming illustrations or fun patterns, and add some funny high school graduation announcement wording. You'll have a graduation announcement that will have everyone chuckling!
  • Professional portrait - We know that your child’s professional graduation photograph wasn't cheap! So you should get your money's worth by showing it off at any opportunity! Choose a beautiful, sleek template adorned with gold accents and add in your professional image for a polished look.

Remember: this announcement is bound to be treasured by family members so they can reminisce about this accomplishment for years to come. Keep this in mind when selecting a photo, be sure to use one your child won't mind being added to the memory box!
