How to choose a graduation invitation that stands out among the others

Graduation is an important moment in your student’s life, and friends and family should be there to help celebrate. With so many graduation invitations being sent out each year, however, it’s easy for them to get lost in a pile of junk or accidently thrown away. Make sure your student’s invitations are refrigerator-worthy and stand out among all of the others with these three ideas.

1. Don’t be afraid to be different

Why send out graduation invitations that look like everybody else’s when you can be different? Stray away from the typical graduation invitation and look for options more memorable. From photo booklet options to vintage style-invitations, there are now plenty of unique layouts and designs for your student to choose from.

2. Make it personal

Most invitations just provide the date and location of a graduation ceremony, but there are invitations that can do more. Choose an invitation that allows your student to share memories and future plans. Personalized invitations will seem more special to friends and family and they will be interested in hearing more about the graduate’s plans at the party!

3. Use unique or bold colors

There’s no rule that says invitations have to show school colors. Send out invitations that are more visually exciting instead. Graduates can pick out their favorite colors to make invitations unique to them or bold colors to make their invitations stand out.

With so many diverse styles and designs out there, it is now easier than ever to send out graduation invitations that are as special as your graduate.

How to pick the colors for your graduation announcement

Your college graduation is a major event that will celebrate all your academic accomplishments and get you ready for your next journey in life. Let your friends and family know about your big day with the perfect college graduation announcement, handcrafted by the artists at Pear Tree Greetings! Here are some ideas to help you customize your stationery with color so it reflects your grown-up style.

School pride
Show off your school pride by designing an announcement in your school colors! With Pear Tree Greetings, you can be as bold or as subtle as you like. Making Memories is a great design that lets you incorporate your choice of colors, and you have more than 70 options to find the exact match for your alma mater.

Show off your style
For a great way to create a sophisticated and cohesive look, select a color scheme that complements the photos you have chosen for your stationery. Pear Tree Greetings offers several layout options for you to include up to three photos. You can opt for a collage announcement with four or more pictures, like the Grad Snapshots design, and your color options can be endless! Or, pick a tone that will really pop on the recycled matte-finish to make a big impression. Pear Tree Greetings makes it easy for you to upload photos from your computer, Facebook or Instagram.

Ladies and gentlemen
Those grads who want a decidedly feminine or boldly masculine design, look no further than Pear Tree Greetings. You can create color combinations that reflect your style and who you have become over the course of your educational career. Add a touch of texture and interest to your announcement with Pear Tree Greetings’ foil stationery, which incorporates real gold or silver foil into your creation for a dramatic effect.
