This time of year is full of excitement and change in Nashville as students graduate from their respective schools and head into their next phase of life. So it’s important we let all of your loved ones know all about the big day! So here are few tips to customize your graduation announcements for the graduate in your life.

 Here are some great tips to help you create the best graduation announcement!

 Tip 1: Include the date and location! It seems like an easy must-have but make sure you let everyone know the details of the date! If there will be a gathering away from the ceremony, be sure to include that as well.

 Tip 2: Include a press clipping from your local newspaper that discusses your graduation day. If you do not feel creative enough to draw or design your own invitation, this allows for a personal touch without the stress of creating something unique and pretty.

 Tip 3: For the ultimate personal touch, create a two picture collage using a baby photo and a graduation photo for maximum embarrassment/sweetness!

 Tip 4: Try rolling the invitation to make it resemble a diploma. Adding tassels completes the festive look!

 Tip 5:For easy replies, use envelopes with pre-printed return addresses. Your invitees will thank you.

 Tip 6: Most importantly, ask your grad what they think and allow them to be a part of the process. It is a celebration of their achievements after all!
