How to Copy the Free Graduation Invitation Templates to MS Word


1) Right-click your mouse over the top of one of the free invitation templates that you want and select “copy”.
2) Open up a new Microsoft Word document.
3) Set the document size to whatever you want – ideally you would use A5 size but you can alter that as you wish.
4) Next right-click and select “paste” – the invitation template should then appear.
5) If you want to stretch the image over the entire space then just left-click on the image and little dots will appear around the sides. When you place your mouse over them, arrows appear. At this point, if you left-click and move your mouse then you’ll see the image moves too.



How to Re-size the Free Graduation Invitation Templates and Insert Your Photo


Once you have copied and pasted the invitation templates into a new word document. Before you start make sure the image is not selected or it will disappear when you action step 1. So just click outside the image.


1) Now select “insert” from the top menu bar and choose “Text Box” – a simple text box will suffice.
2) Move your mouse to the side of the text box and the cursor will become 4 mini arrows facing in different directions.
3) Left-click and move your mouse and this will move your invitation text box. Just navigate to position it over the top of the place on the graduation invitation templates where the photo should appear.
4) To re-size the text box just move the mouse over to the corners until double headed arrow appears and hold down the mouse and drag.
5) Now right-click over the graduation photo you want to use and select “copy”.
6) Back to the word document now and click inside the text box and right-click and select “paste” – this will automatically resize and paste your photo inside the text box.



How to Add Personalized Wording to the Free Invitation Templates


Once you have copied one of the free invitation templates to a blank MS word document and inserted your photo. Now you are ready to personalize the wording. This process is largely the same idea as how you added the photo. Again before starting make sure the image is not selected or it will disappear when you action step 1. So just click outside the image.


1) Now select “insert” from the top menu bar and choose “Text Box” – a simple text box will suffice.
2) Move your mouse to the side of the text box and the cursor will become 4 mini arrows facing in different directions.
3) Left-click and move your mouse and this will move your text box. Just navigate to position it over the top of the wording that is currently there. It’s much easier to just start from scratch than try to insert the individual details one line at a time.
4) So you just click inside the text box and start typing. To change the font, font size and color, just highlight the text and right-click and you’ll see all the options for changing.



If you want to change the background color of the text box then you will have to:

1) Left-click on the edge of the box, then right-click and an option ”format text box” should appear.
2) The fill color is the background color and the line color is the outline of the text box.
NB. Even if you don’t want to change the background color of the text box then it’s nice to change the line color to white so that there is no visible text box frame.



Paper and Printing for Graduation Invitations


Good quality flat A5 card will do nicely for your graduation invitation templates or of course a different dimension if you have re-sized the template. If your image is ink intensive though then it may be best to save it onto a CD and take it along to your local printers.
A glossy finish is nice but you cannot write your guests' names on that. So the best bet is to leave your envelope to cover who exactly is invited and the actual invite just has the general party details.



Photo Invitations Templates - Envelopes


Buying envelopes that suit your paper and standard of graduation invitations is important. They will be able to be printed on your own computer.

You can add lots of extra touches to decorate the envelope. You can add graduation seals and the sprinkle some confetti inside to give your graduation invitation templates extra appeal.

Check out the Invitation Etiquette page for details on how to properly address your envelopes including return addresses.
