Great Card

"I created these blank greeting cards out of my own illustration hand drawn and scanned from my children's book. I send these cards out to thank people who buy my book which supports a local charity. The quality is excellent, the colors are bright and the envelope and card are sturdy. I am happy to send out these high quality, beautiful cards to my generous donors and will continue to create more!"

Tips & Ideas for College Graduation Announcements

Your years of hard work are finally paying off with a degree, and it’s time to let everyone know the big news! College graduation announcements are a great way to celebrate a big milestone and keep your loved ones up-to-date on your latest academic achievements.

However, it’s been a while since you sent out your last set of announcements in high school, so you might need a refresher course on graduation announcement etiquette. Here’s a quick guide to the basics of writing your collegiate graduation announcements.

College Graduation Announcement Wording

In general, your college graduation announcements will be similar to the announcements you made when graduating high school. In case you don’t remember, a typical announcement template includes the following information:

  • Graduate’s full name
  • Name of school
  • Graduation year and/or date
  • Date, time and location of graduation party, if applicable

For the purposes of your college graduation announcement, you will also need to include another important piece of information your recipients will want to know: the degree you received.

Announcement Tone: Formal vs. Informal

The next step is to decide if you want to create a formal or informal announcement:

  • Formal: A formally worded announcement comes across as sophisticated and professional, and is the more traditional way to go.
  • Informal: An informal or casual announcement allows a little more freedom with your wording, so it’s a good choice if you want to infuse your card with humor or fun.

Still undecided? A good place to start is by finding a design you like. Browse our collection of announcement designs and choose your favorite. Some are casual in style and some have a more classic appearance. Your announcement wording should complement the card’s design.

Above all, you’ll want to keep your announcement clear, straightforward and expressive. Keep your personality a part of it even if you opt for a formal, traditional tone. To add some of your own personal expression, a meaningful graduation quote or saying makes a great addition.

Once you’ve chosen a personalized design and decided on the tone you prefer, you can begin working on your wording. See our guide to college graduation announcement wording ideas for both formal and informal announcement styles.
