Graduation Announcement- Some tips for the graduate

If you are graduating, it is a busy time. There are lots of loose ends that must be tied up around campus. Finals and term papers are taking up a lot of your time. But now is the time to put out a graduation announcement to proclaim your accomplishment and share it with friends and family.

Addressing the envelopes and announcements can be difficult for a beginner. On the outside of the envelope the address should be written formally. Use the full title such as Mr. or Mrs. and the full name of the recipient. Inside the announcement can be less formal. If you are sending the graduation announcement to a close family member, use their family name such as Grandma or Uncle Tom.

Knowing when to send the announcement is an important issue. The graduation announcements should be sent 1 to 2 weeks before the graduation date. This will allow time for people and family members to make plans to attend. It will also give people plenty of time to call and congratulate or send a card.

Graduation announcements are not request for gifts. Do not expect gifts from those to whom you send an announcement. In some cases, family members will provide gifts or throw a party. If you do receive gifts be sure to send a thank you note. It is a very nice gesture for those who have gone out of their way to congratulate the graduate.

Sending graduation announcements is a great way to present your great accomplishment. It is also the time to send your respect to those who helped you along the way.
