The Front:

Make sure to include the following basic information on the front of your graduation announcement so that friends and family can celebrate you accordingly!

  1. Your full name.
  2. Some form of celebratory copy: “Graduate!” “Class of 2021” “I did it!”
  3. The school you are graduating from.
  4. Show off your smiling face! Your friends and family will love to see an updated photo of you.
  5. Extra information can include your degree from your high school, college, or master's program you attended.

The Back:

The back of your announcement is the perfect place to share more details of your high school experience, college plans, or job offers accepted. You may not get to invite everyone to your graduation party or may just be keeping it low key with family so use this space to brag on yourself!
