Graduation Announcements for 2022: Mark a Once-in-a-Lifetime Achievement

Yes - receiving a diploma is one of the most significant events in a young person's life. That’s why you should make the graduation announcement memorable— it commemorates a once-in-a-lifetime achievement in academics that should be shared with the people you love and care about the most.

At Jostens, we provide each student with everything they could need to create special graduation announcements. Even though it may seem like there's still a lot of time, sending out announcement invitations for your graduation needs to be done in advance, so it's a good idea to start planning early to ensure that people are informed (and impressed by your invitation).

Your family and friends want to be made aware of when your big day will happen — naturally they will want to share it with you and be there for the commencement ceremony. This is especially important for those living far away who need to know ahead of time so they can plan their trip to celebrate your success.

A graduation announcement is a perfect way to commemorate a truly special occasion and thank those who supported you and helped you get there. With busy schedules, make sure that people can mark the date on their calendars so they can be there to watch you cross that stage and get your diploma.

And grad announcements aren’t just about the invitation itself. Even many years after graduation takes place, it can serve as a beautiful reminder of the milestone that you were able to reach and will serve as a source of pride for years to come.

The majority of the etiquette around senior graduation announcements revolves around the format. Certain details are part of a tried and true high school graduation invitation tradition, which is why it's a good idea to follow these main principles if you want to best commemorate the special occasion.

● Use two envelopes, one inside the other. The outer envelope is for the address and the personalized return address labels. The outer envelope should be sealed with the grad seal. The inner envelope protects the high school graduation invites and should only have the recipients' names on it. The inner envelope should be sealed with the monogram inner seal. 

● As you're putting together your graduation announcements for 2022, consider whether you want to add a tissue insert, name card, photo card with grad party details, or other personalized additions. This should be placed together with the main announcement in the inner envelope. Don't forget to include the tickets to the event if they are required.

● Another consideration is how many people you can invite, especially with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines in place at ceremonies. If there's a limited number of tickets, make sure to send high school graduation announcements for 2022 at least a few weeks in advance and explicitly state that you require an RSVP to plan their attendance.

● While RSVPs are important, give your invitees enough time to consider and plan ahead themselves, informing them of the graduation early enough and providing them a timeframe to look at their calendar to determine whether they can make it and respond.

● If you want to include a nice personal touch to your graduation announcements for 2022, consider adding a formal senior picture of the graduate sending the invitation. This might seem like a minor detail, but many family members will appreciate having high-quality pictures of all the graduates in the family over the years.

● When it comes to how you should address people, there are also rules you should follow. Make sure you spell their names correctly and in an appealing font.

● Finally, don't be afraid to add your own personal touches. Even though graduation announcements are somewhat formal, you can enhance them using technology-enhanced features. At Jostens, we offer ANNOUNCEMENTS+, which can bring your graduation announcements to life using personalized videos that can be accessed via a QR code that can be placed inside your traditional announcement to be viewed by family and friends.

At Jostens, we are committed to providing you with a great experience when creating and sending out your graduation announcements for 2022.
