Graduation Announcement – Guides On How To Write Graduation Announcement And The Examples 

The graduation celebration is considered the most joyous moment for every individual who has completed their studies. It is a significant accomplishment that one can take pride in and cherish. The occasion calls for a family gathering to commemorate the success of the graduate.

Creating a card can be a hassle-free option if you’re planning to throw a party for your graduation and want to announce it. Here are some guidelines on how to include your wording in the card.

1. The Grad’s Full Name

One important thing to remember when creating a graduation announcement card is to include the graduate’s name. For a formal announcement, it is recommended to include the graduate’s first, middle, and last name. However, if you prefer a casual approach, you can add a nickname if the graduate has one.

2. School Name

It is advisable to add the complete name of the educational institution from which the graduate has graduated. In the case of high school graduates, you may also mention the name of the college or university where they plan to continue their studies.

3. Parents’ Names

Adding the parents’ names to the announcement is a way to express your pride, and the method for adding them is illustrated below.

4. Major Or Degree

In case you’re making a college graduation announcement, mentioning the field of study the student pursued is important. And if it’s a graduate school announcement, you must inform your family and friends about the degree your graduate has earned.

5. Graduation Year

Include the year of graduation as a design element in the announcement card.

6. Back Of Card

The rear side of the announcement card can be used to add a personal touch. Choose a layout that allows for sufficient space on the back, allowing you to share details about the graduate’s dedication, school experiences, interests, and aspirations with loved ones.

How To Address Your Graduation Announcement

To address your recipients, you can either write or print their names and addresses. If you send it to a family household, you can write “The Brooks Family” instead of listing each family member.

For a more formal approach, you can address your recipients as Mr. and Mrs. Brooks. The family name should be on the first line, followed by the street address on the second line, and the city, state, and zip on the third line.

Minted offers an address collection feature to help you keep track of all your loved ones’ contact information. Additionally, you can choose to handwrite your return address or use a return address label. It’s important to note that return address labels are cost-effective and can save a lot of time.
