Reasons You Should Send Out Graduation Announcements

April 6, 2022

Sending out graduation announcements may sound like a headache on top of everything else you may have to prepare for on that big day. However, there are many reasons why it is necessary. The importance of creating and sending graduation announcements may go far beyond what you may think. Additionally, when you send them out, you should also consider the people you should be sending them to so that you don’t miss out on anyone important.

Reasons To Send Out Graduation Announcements

Are you wondering why you should send out graduation announcements? There are several reasons for this, including:

  • Your family and friends want to know- Even though some may already be aware that you are graduating at some point this year, an announcement is a good way to keep them informed. This is also a good time to let them know the degree you will be receiving and when you are graduating.
  • Graduation gifts- It is traditional for most family and friends to send money and other gifts during graduation. Who doesn’t need a little help to pay for a new apartment if you are graduating from college or some new things to prepare for college if you are graduating from high school?
  • Keep in touch- Social media is also a good way to stay in touch with family and friends. However, what about the other people you don’t see very often but still consider an important part of your life? This is a great way to keep the doors for communication open.
  • Celebration of achievement- Everything you have done to earn your degree or diploma is something to be proud of. All of those late nights you stayed up to study and the hard work you put in to make sure you passed your classes is a huge achievement. This is the perfect opportunity to let everyone know that you earned your degree or diploma without sounding too imperious about it.

Who Should Receive a Graduation Announcement?

Even though family and friends may sound like the best place to start when determining who should receive a graduation announcement, there really is no right or wrong list. It depends on your own situation.

Extended Family

This includes grandparents, uncles, aunts, and cousins that you may not see every day but are a part of your life. You may also want to consider people beyond blood relatives that you still consider family and add them to your list.

Childhood Friends

Close friends from your pre-college or high school days should receive an announcement or even those friends who live far away who may still want to send a congratulatory message.

Important Teachers, Mentors, and Religious Leaders

Maybe you’ve had a high school teacher who made a difference in your life or a pastor who helped keep you encouraged along the way. This is a great way to acknowledge the influence that they have had on your life.
