Graduation Invitation Theme

Choosing a theme is the first step when making an invitation. Talk to your child and see which they prefer—colors of their current alma mater or colors of their future college or university. If your child is going to serve in our U.S. military, maybe a more patriotic theme would be more fitting. Whatever you and your graduate decide, count on a professional printing company to print your invitations so you can ensure the colors are top quality.


If your child took graduation photos, a graduation invitation is a perfect time to put those pictures to use! Many families want to show off their graduate and put an image of them on the front or inside of the invitation. This helps cut cost of photo printing and allows everyone who is invited to the event see those wonderful pictures.

Date, Time & Location

Before you print your invitations, ensure that the date, time, and location are completely set. The last thing you need is sending invitations to find that the date needs to change. Triple check to ensure all info is correct before you print your invitations.

Use a Printing Company

After you have decided your invitation theme, photos, and event details, it’s time to take your ideas to a professional printing company and have your invitations printed. When you hire a printing company, you can ensure your ideas come to life on quality paper using the best ink.
