Grad Card Etiquette

March 10, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

LET’S TALK GRADUATION CARD ETIQUETTE! Did you know that there’s a right way and wrong way to send your grad cards and party invites?!? I’m here to help you out & give you the details on the dates!

INVITATIONS: Graduation commencement and grad party invitations should go out 3 weeks in advance! This gives everyone time to clear their schedules and make plans to attend.

ANNOUNCEMENTS: Now, these are A LOT less formal when it comes to timing. Some of our clients like to send them out a few weeks before their graduation events and we even have some clients who send them out post-graduation as well!  Sending our announcements up to four weeks after the event is acceptable.

WHO GETS ONE:  Obviously, family members will be the first ones on the list - including extended family as well.  Family friends, teachers, coaches and even classmates can be included.  Don't forget to save one for yourself to add to your keepsake box! 

WHAT TO INCLUDE:  Feel free to include information on your future plans or college name, along with any high school honors.

THANK YOU CARDS: If you are sending announcements or invitations, you are bound to receive GIFTS! Woo hoo! Because of that, thank you cards are a must have item in your grad collection. Thank you cards should be sent within one month of your celebration or from the date you received your gift.  Be sure to keep track of the gifts you receive and send proper graduation thank you notes in a timely manner. If you order your thank you cards the same time that you order your announcements they’ll be ready to go as soon as you receive gifts.
