graduation announcements 2012

graduation is right around the corner, and i've noticed tons of cute announcements popping up around the web. here are a few of my favorites.

forget the traditional photo idea -- how about a vectorized portrait of your graduate? i think this announcement from posey papers is so cool!

minted has a whole bunch of new graduation designs for 2012 (including non-photo options if you're not into that kind of thing, like us) -- i especially love the coordinating envelope liners and skinny address labels!

love these typography-inspired announcements from wide eyes design, especially because they have such a unique shape:

brightside prints is giving 10 extra cards with every order placed before may 12 -- AND, since you work directly with the designer on every project, you can easily customize any card so it matches your school colors. plus, they give you a free backer so you can add an extra photo, an inspirational quote or whatever you want.

mk paperie has fun designs like this sketchy one -- you buy the PDF file, customize the info at home and send to your local printer. so easy!

so many fun ideas! i wish i needed to order some announcements this year ;)


  1. Thanks for featuring some of our designs Lyndsey!

  2. I do not remember announcements being anywhere near this creative when I graduated. I just sent the generic high school and college ones. I missed out big time!
