When we first heard from this grad’s mom, she was in tears. “I just received my order and I have sat at my desk crying for 10 minutes because my daughter’s graduation invitations are so beautiful and perfect. I am a paper products snob and there is no way I could be any happier.” We get a lot of compliments from customers, but we don’t hear that one very often! So we contacted her to find out more.
Can you tell what this grad’s favorite color is? We love the way her bright pink jacket stands out against the snowy background, and how she used the color as an accent throughout our Favorite Photo Vertical Invitation. “My graduation invite was inspired by the color pink, as it is my favorite color, and it is my grad party’s theme,” says Katie. “I just wanted something fun to preview the party for my friends and family.”
The graduation announcements are pouring in and this one stood out for its bright red color and fun, candid photos. (Plus, the matching yard sign is hard to miss!) We asked Tristan’s proud mom to share a little bit about her son.
