Graduation season is quickly approaching and if you or a one of your children is graduating this year there’s a good chance you’ll be sending out at least a few graduation announcements, grad party invites, or graduation invitations.
I absolutely love the graduation season. From making graduation leis to planning that perfect graduation party there’s so many fun things you can do to celebrate your grad.
I’ve broken up these invitations into a few different categories so feel free to use the table of contents below to jump to the section you want to see the most.
As you'll see, all of the designs I've selected are available on Zazzle. This is my favorite place to shop for party invitations, baby announcements, and basically any other card you could send out.
If you've never used their templates I've created a brief tutorial to walk you through the process. Just click the box below and the instructions will expand.
Quick Guide on Using Zazzle
When you click one of the links below you'll land on that invitation template page. Once you're on that page you'll click the blue Personalize button.
Next you'll be able to start changing the fields on the card. Make sure you change the date, name, school, and any other info that's on the template.
Then you'll want to make sure you change any pictures that are on the graduation invitation.
Next up you can make more personalization options like changing the font and font color, and editing the size of the text.
Once you've finished those changes click done in the upper right corner. The last thing you may want to look at is changing the size, shape, or paper type of the card.
Once you're done with that just click add to cart. And remember to select the number of invitations you'll need. If you missed any of the personalization options Zazzle will warn you. Then you can go back and make sure you edit them.
That's all there is too it. It's really a simple process, it just takes a little time to make all the changes you need.
