Graduation stands with pomp and circumstance on the timeline of life. For years a student, now the hard-earned title of alumnus is awarded, the right to be called a graduate. Express your best wishes with a composed design of images and text that honors this major milestone. Here are a few study tips to help you pass the test!

  • Congratulate your graduate with themes that give a nod to their personality and preferences. What are their interests? Hobbies? Future plans? Not sure? Remember, this isn’t a stress test! A graduation card suitable for anyone still shows you care.
  • This is an ideal opportunity for a card with photo uploads. A photo of you together or one of the grad from the archives just might elevate your greeting to a keepsake.
  • It’s not perfect words or fancy words but heartfelt words from you that make this card special. If you choose a pre-written message, add a few words of your own as you sign.
