Make Your Own Free Printable Graduation Party Invitation


To create printable graduation invitations is very simple.

I use "Microsoft" and "Paint" to create invites in a few minutes.

You can make the invitations in any color you want. Perhaps school colors or a favorite color of the graduate's.

The main ingredient is the cap and scroll clip art. Using clip art you can create amazing printable graduation invitations.

There are simple and more advanced ways of making printable invitations. Firstly the simple process:

The simplest process is:

  1. Open a new doc in your word processing tool and set up the page size - choose File and Page setup.

  2. Now right-click your mouse over the clip art (instructions below) you’d like to use and select “copy”. Now place your cursor on the area where you want the clip art to go and right-click and select “paste” to add the clip art to your doc.

  3. Lastly, add some text and use some word art as well to personalize it.


For a large selection of clip art, advanced techniques, and full instruction on exactly what to do see the graduation clip art page.

Using clip art you can make cap and scroll envelopes, cap and scroll favor tags, cap and scroll place cards, cap and scroll party hats, cap and scroll game certificates, cap and scroll T-shirts, and cap and scroll save the date fridge magnets.

Printable Graduation Invitations Paper 


There are a few considerations in choosing graduation paper

  • Your budget.

  • The color of paper that you wish. White ideally suits the Cap and Scroll design. However a contrasting color would be great too.

  • The thickness, or quality feel, you require. Perhaps your invites need to be strong or you just like the overall presentation that quality paper gives.


I like to use white cardstock with a cap and scroll to get the right look and a quality feel to the paper.

As well as for a free printable graduation party invitation, the same paper can be used for Cap and Scroll style thank you notes, Cap and Scroll place cards and Cap and Scroll announcements.
