It’s graduation time! Here’s an idea for those of you who want an announcement option that is different from the standard choice given by the school.
It’s simple to create. Here are the Do-it-yourself instructions.
First I purchased the gold tri-fold at the local FasClampitt Paper. A great DIY resource in Dallas. The Announcement can be created in the program of your choice from Word to Illustrator. Create the copy you want . I used Bickham Script which has a simple classic look.
You can scan the school logo from any printed material you’ve received. Then size it to fit in with the rest of the copy.
Print on white or cream card stock available at any craft store and back with one of the school colors. In this case they are black and gold. Inside the pocket of the tri-fold I put a casual photo of the graduate, again backed with card stock.
I attached the final announcement to the tri-fold with double back tape.
After addressing in calligraphy, I sealed the tri-fold with faux sealing wax in gold using a seal with the letter of the graduates last name . This wax is used with a glue gun and is tested to not crack or peel in the mail. You can purchase it from letterseals.com . The seal was purchased from Michael’s.
The end result is a beautiful custom announcement to share graduation news with family and friends!
