Graduation FAQs

  • When should I send graduation announcements/invitations?
    If your graduation announcements are doubling as party invitations, we suggest sending them 3-4 weeks in advance (no less than two weeks in advance). If you’re sending announcements without an invitation, you can send them anywhere from two weeks before the event to four weeks after.

  • Do I need to include a photo on my graduation announcement?
    You don’t have to include a photo although it’s an easy and fun way to add your own style. We offer graduation announcements and party invitations with and without photos. Use the refinement function as you shop. You’ll see that you can search by number of photos while browsing products (refinements are located at left of products).

  • Do I send an announcement for a college graduation?
    Yes! College graduation is a huge milestone in your life. Extended family members and friends you don’t see very often will especially appreciate receiving the update. If you choose to celebrate with family members and close friends, they would love to receive an announcement that doubles as an invitation.

  • How fast will I receive my order?
    Orders leave the facility within 1-2 business days and may take up to 7 days for shipping depending on the shipping method you choose. Check out our Shipping & Delivery page for more details.
  • Who do I send my graduation announcement to?

  • How long after my graduation can I send announcements?
    First of all, you don’t have to wait until after your graduation to send announcements. You can send them a couple weeks before the graduation date. If you choose to send them after, we recommend sending them as soon as possible but no later than four weeks after the graduation.

  • What’s the difference between an announcement and an invitation?
    Graduation announcements inform others about the event. Graduation party invitations actually invite others to the ceremony and/or party. Graduation announcements can be, and often are, used as invitations with a simple change of wording.

Your high school graduation is a big moment, and definitely one to share with family and friends.

Customer reviews of our Graduation Announcements

LOVED how they turned out. Wanted something unique. Purchased my daughters grad invites from you 3 years ago & really liked those as well. Cardstock was thick and foil look turned out well. Fast shipping - even to rural Montana. Very pleased.

I ordered my daughter's graduation announcements from Pear Tree. So, when it came time to order my son's I knew just where to go. I have been delighted with my purchase both times. I appreciate the large selection to choose from, and personalization couldn't be any easier. The announcement looks and feels high quality and the time from order to arrival was just a little over a week

I was looking for just the right template for my son's graduation announcement and wasn't happy with the ones I found on the typical websites. I kept looking and the Pear Tree site caught my attention! I found just the right card for my photos and ideas and using the template couldn't have been any easier. The process of ordering and the communication with Pear Tree was excellent and efficient and our cards came out exactly like we wanted.

After looking at several vendors, Pear Tree was by far the easiest to navigate. They were also the only vendor that had exactly what I was looking for in a tri-fold invitation/announcement. The quality is superior and we could not be happier with the final product. The shipping time was exactly as stated.
