With graduation just around the corner, now is the time to start thinking about your teenager’s graduation announcements. Let family and friends know about the big day with announcements that stand out and capture your attention. Graduation announcements have come a long way in recent years and many of the newer trends offer a unique way to share the big news. If you’re looking for some suggestions and inspiration, consider these five creative graduation trends.
1. Instagram photos
With Instagram, it is now easier than ever to take and send out artistic photos without even hiring a professional photographer. This has caused the app to increase in popularity and now students have the option to take their favorite Instagram photos and make them into graduation announcements. Look for announcements with small square photo areas specifically designed for small Instagram-size photos.
2. Bold colors
Don’t let your kid’s graduation announcement get lost among all of the others. Modern-style announcements stand out with bold colors that create a striking appearance. Whether you choose to match the school’s colors or feature your kid’s favorite colors, the bold look will certainly impress.
3. Polaroid-style snapshots
The Polaroid-style photographs are making a comeback, which is evident if you browse through some of the newer graduation announcements. This is a great idea if you want to keep within the traditional announcement format, but are looking for a way to spice it up and take it to the next level.
Your student took all of these amazing senior photos, so why just choose one to feature in the graduation announcement? With collage-style announcements, graduates can send out all of their senior photos for friends and family to see.
5. Photo books
Send close family and friends more than just a simple announcement – send them a photo book! Photo book announcements are a fun way to collect memories and share them with the important people in one’s life.
Graduation is a big deal, so help your student pick out an announcement that is just as unique and special as they are.
