You had it all planned out. Walking across the stage. Sending out grad cards. Having the party. Saying goodbye to high school with your friends and family. And then, the world went nuts and now it’s all up in the air. Grad card ideas aren’t as easy as they were when you had it all planned out, but now, I’ve got grad card ideas for you.
I can imagine that seniors and their families must feel all of this so much more that the rest of us. Senior year has not gone as you expected and things are just up in the air.
One way that you can share this time with friends and family and celebrate is to send graduation announcements. This will keep everyone in the loop and is also a really uplifting way to use your images.
What do I put on my cards?
Idea 1: High School Highlights
Include some things that you accomplished while in high school. Your grade point average. A sports accomplishment. Maybe even states in band. It is a great way to include some of the best memories that your senior was a part of.
Idea 2: Future plans instead of dates and times
Instead of dates and times for information on the card, use them to announce where the senior plans to go to college or any plans the senior may have after high school. Tech school, college, job or traveling around the world. Inquiring minds want to know!
Idea 3: Add a meaningful quote
This option allows you to add a personal touch to the announcement. You could either decide as a family on a quote that really represents what your senior is all about or, the senior can choose a quote that helped get them through high school. Either way, it will add meaning and help add character to your graduation announcement.
Idea 4: Stick to your party plans
If you are planning your party for later in the summer, hopefully we’ll be back up and running as a society, you’ll still be able to celebrate your senior. Invite family and friends to celebrate with you.
Idea 5: Show off your senior
Sometimes, it’s enough to just celebrate your senior with your senior pictures. This is a great way to share their pictures. I like to encourage my senior families to use one solid image on the back and multiple images and words on the front. This allows family and friends to frame the single image and saves you in printing 5×7’s for family and friends.
Using this time to brighten your friends and families day (and their mailboxes) with your senior’s face could be just what they need.
