Graduating from high school or college is a major accomplishment to be celebrated, but buying professionally printed graduation invitations can get pricey. Making your own invitations is cheaper and allows you to reflect your own personality. Here are a few examples of wording for your announcements, ranging from traditional to lighthearted. Simply replace the personal information with your own, and let the party begin!

Formal from the Graduating Class

The North University Graduating Class of 2012 cordially invites you to attend its Commencement Exercises on June eleventh two thousand twelve at two o'clock in the afternoon North Memorial Auditorium, Northfield, Rhode Island Note: Invitations with this type of wording traditionally are sent with a small card printed with the name of the graduate. Make your own name cards to match your invitation, and include one in each envelope when you mail them.
