Etiquette and How to Put Your Order Together

  • Graduation Announcements / Invitations
    • Most schools limit the number of visitors a student may invite to commencement.
    • Remember these are not Graduation Invitations, but Announcements. Send announcements to family, friends, and professional Acquaintances
    • Announcements are intended to spread the good news of your graduation accomplishment. You may write "No gifts, please" at the bottom if you wish to dispel the notion of any obligation for gift giving.
    • Remember that gifts received can help you get on your feet after graduation, and help pay for expenses associated with moving to a new job.
  • Envelopes (It is socially correct to use inner and outer envelopes.)
    • The outer envelope, slightly larger, is the mailing envelope. It should be hand-addressed as legibly as you can with black or blue ink. Avoid using abbreviations in the mailing address:

      Mrs. July C. Smith
      400 Hickory Street
      Pittsburgh, PA 21742

    • The inner envelope, slightly smaller, holds the announcement. Address it informally:

      Grandmother
      Aunt Cindy and Uncle Frank

    • Return Address Labels help make the outer envelope appear to be printed. They also save you the time of having to hand-address all of the envelopes.
  • Proper Announcement Insertion
    • Place tissue over the printed text on the inside of the announcement.
    • If you ordered Personal Note Cards to let people know of a special pinning ceremony or celebration, place these on top of the announcement text.
    • Place announcement in smaller envelope, folded edge inserted first, with the announcement front facing the flap. You may fasten the flap using a foil etiquette seal, or leave it un-tucked.
    • Insert the inner envelope into the mailing envelope with its flap facing the mailing address side.
  • Sending Thanks
    • Signature Announcements Optional Thank You Notes have the traditional school logo on the front flap.
    • A short note of thanks, written by hand, must go to everyone who has sent a gift.
    • This note should acknowledge the gift and should be sent as promptly as possible.

Where is(are) my Certificate(s) of Appreciation?

The Certificate(s) of Appreciation is packaged in a brown paper bag and located at the bottom of your package. It is important to check the bottom of the box, as the brown paper bag actually mimics the bottom of the package and is hard to detect at times. Or, if you ordered a Professional package, please check the back of your free certificate frame for the brown packaging.
