What’s the difference? And which one should you order?
A graduation announcement is basically just that. An announcement of your graduation, whether from high school, college, even kindergarten.
A graduation invitation is again…just that. An invitation to your graduation party or open house party that you typically send to all of your family and friends to come celebrate with you. Sometimes invitations are included as part of the announcement…sometimes they’re separate. It all depends on your style.
That said, you can create either graduation invitations OR graduation announcements with ANY of the designs in the graduation collection at Pear Tree.
Take our graduation pocket invitations, for example. They feature a little more formal look that would work great as a traditional announcement, just with a stylish spin. But they also feature enough space for personalization to include your party details if you choose!
Our trifolds, collages, and two-sided graduation announcements offer room for personalization on the front and back (for the majority of them). Just wanting to create an announcement? Simply leave the text areas blank. Simple as that!
Send graduation thank you cards. Your guests will appreciate your thanks for any gifts that you receive. Also consider sending extra cards to your teachers, coaches and mentors a personal, handwritten note in each of these cases is a classy move.
Remember to save at least one of each announcement and/or invitation for your scrapbook. Graduation portfolios are the perfect place to display these items.
Pear Tree Greetings also offers matching profile cards, everything you want people to know on one simple card!
