It’s that time of year when many people are graduating. From pre-school to college and all other ceremonies in between. This is a time of joy, merriment, and congratulations.
Soon invitations for the open house events and other parties will be going out. Why not take a look at all the different invitations that American Stationery has to offer? They’re much easier to customize and can give the look of personality that a simple school color invitation does not offer.
For instance the item number 2434 aptly named the Grad Flair invitation is a terrific choice for the graduate who wishes to show off some style. The landscape printed card offers a variety of designs on graduation caps at the bottom, a thick border and plenty of room to include all of the important details. For $36.00 you will receive 20 cards with plain envelopes.
But, you can’t stop there. Throwing a graduation party is a hectic time! Make it easier on you with matching return address labels! Item number 2439 matches the dotted hats perfectly and provides plenty of space for the address. You may think return address labels aren’t important but, they provide a way for an invitation to come back to you if someone moved or you write down the guests name but, not the address (it’s happens trust us!)
If your graduate prefers something with a bit more flair then choose the grad flair labels with the swirly design item number 2435. These labels come in sets of 60 for $12.95! You may think you’ll end up with extra but, you can’t forget the all-important thank you notes. You will definitely be able to use them up that way!
If you want color on your invitation then you have definitely come to the right place! Take a look at item number 2408 and you will see that it’s easy to combine multiple colors into a fun and unique design that will please any aged graduate. The invitation features two large graduation caps where all of your information is printed. In the background is a colorful polka dot design. With your choice of ink color and typestyle you can truly make this invitation all your own. For $36.00 you will receive 20 landscape printed cards and plain envelopes.
Once the party is over and the leftovers are eaten and the gifts are counted it’s time to sit down and write thank you notes. Whether they are graduating from pre-school or high school it’s important to send a note to all of those who came and celebrated. Typically everyone should have received his or her note within one month after the party (not the graduation).
Make sure that the writer explains what they are thanking the person for. “Thank you for attending my graduation party and for the gas card. The card will definitely come in handy for trips back home.” Something short and sweet is just fine. Once written hurry up and get those notes in the mail. I don’t know how many times I’ve had notes written and addressed just waiting by the door and took forever getting them in the mailbox!
Item number 2401 is a set of 20 fold notes for $32.00. These fold notes are the perfect 5.5″ by 4.25″ size with plenty of room to write your personal thanks. With several graduation caps in different colors appearing as though they’ve just been tossed in the air, this thank you note is both whimsical and practical. The graduates name appears centered at the bottom and is printed in your choice of typestyle. Each set comes with matching plain envelopes. If you’re into saving time (and who isn’t?) consider having your return address printed on the back flap of the envelope. For $18.00 more you can have just that.
If you really like this design, you are in luck. We have matching address labels item number 2402 comes in a set of 60 labels for just $12.95. These digitally printed labels have one graduation cap to the left hand side and all of your address information printed to the right in the same font that matches the thank you notes. With extra you can keep them on hand for the cards that you receive in the mail from the folks who were unable to come to the party.
To complete the look you simply must go one step further and order the sticker seals item number 9226. These simple yet very colorful stickers have three grad caps inside a thick circular border. These 1.5″ stickers are sold in a set of 70 for $27.95. There is simply no match for a completed look. Your guests will feel special knowing you took the time to pay attention to detail when sending out your notes of appreciation.
There are also matching invitations. The item number is 2400 and again you will receive 20 invitations for $36.00 these invitations feature hats in the air with the hands at the bottom shown as though they have just tossed the cap up high. Printed digitally in full bright color your guests will know this is a happening good time.

With a variety of color and design choices to choose from it should be a snap to find the perfect choice for you. For example, item number 6106 is just $24.00 for 24 digitally printed folded photo cards. For this item you may change the accent color, the wording, the font and upload your favorite photo. The inside of this folded note provides ample room to write out your words of thanks to your guest.
