Graduation is quickly approaching! As a result, print services are in high demand during this time of year. If you're planning a graduation ceremony, celebration, or want to acknowledge graduates, you'll want to make sure you have all the necessary print materials on hand. If you aren’t sure what printed items are available, or you’re looking for ideas, keep reading!

Announcements and Invites

Graduation Ceremony Invitation

Invitations or announcements are among the first items you’ll need for graduation events. Whether you’re inviting guests to a graduation ceremony or party, a well-designed invitation or announcement can set the tone for the event. It is important to choose a design that reflects the ceremony or party's theme and captures the occasion's spirit. For schools, printed graduation ceremony “Save the Date” invitations and graduation tickets are needed to share the details of the ceremony. Invites should always include the date, time, and location of the event, as well as other important information.

Choose from various substrates (matte, glossy, linen, satin) and embellishments (foil stamping, embossing, debossing, metallic ink, etc.) to make your invitations stand out amongst the crowd.


High-quality certificates and diplomas are an essential part of any graduation ceremony. They serve as a tangible reminder of the hard work and dedication that students have put into their education. Schools should use a high-quality substrate and design that reflects the level of achievement being recognized for the certificates and diplomas. The quality should make recipients want to keep and display the recognition they worked hard to earn.


Graduation program booklets are utilized to share information about the event, such as the order of events, speakers, and graduates. Presenting this information in a structured manner will ensure a seamless flow of the ceremony. Many programs are produced on low-quality paper stock. However, a better quality card stock can make the program a keepsake to reminisce over, years into the future.

Banners & Signage

Custom banners and signage are a staple for all graduation celebrations, regardless of event size. For schools, banners can be used to celebrate the graduating class throughout the halls and at the ceremony. Custom large banners and signage can create excitement and clarity at graduation events.

Schools can get custom lawn signs and posters to celebrate each recent grad. Yard signs can be as small as 1ft wide, or as large as 3ft and personalized to include the grad's name, school, and even photos.

Achievements should not go unnoticed! Creating personalized graduation print materials is crucial since they serve as physical mementos. Whether you’re celebrating the graduation of a preschooler or college grad, be sure to make the most of this special time with high-quality print materials that will be treasured for years to come!
