Types of Graduation Cards

Graduation Cards

Graduation is a special day. Many of us look back fondly on our own graduation days and remember all our hopes and dreams for the future. Make your friends, family, neighbor, or whoever a special homemade graduation card to help them celebrate their big day. Over the years, Papertrey Ink has produced many graduation-themed stamps and dies to help you create a special card for your loved ones.

Graduation Invites

Graduations are really just one big celebration! Instead of basic graduation invites handed out to you by your school, create beautifully handcrafted invitations for your family. I’m sure grandma will love a special graduation invitation that comes from the heart.

Not only will you need graduation invites, but you’ll need invitations to your party afterward! Invite your friends and family to celebrate the big day with custom graduation party invitations. Many of our stamps and dies will help you create the perfect personalized graduation invitations.

Money Cards

What graduate doesn’t want (need) money? Whether it’s $20 for pizza or $200 to help buy dorm supplies, every new graduate will be thankful for a little green in their graduation card. In the past, Lexi has shown us how to incorporate money into your cards in a creative way. Use dollar bills to make money origami, like a graduation scroll or shirt!
