How to Personalize Your Free Printable Graduation Invitations
- Create a text
box that completely covers all the wording you want to replace. NB. If
you need to use precision when placing your text box then press CTRL &
the Up and Down keys.
- Enter your own customized wording in the text box.
- Please note - you can type the names of those you are inviting on each invite
and print them separately (or even do a mail merge if your a computer whiz)
or you may choose to hand write those you are inviting on your invitations.
How to Print your Printable Invitations
- Open a word document.
- Set the printer to the desired paper size.
- Insert the image.
- Adjust the margins to zero.
- Adjust the image to cover the full size of the paper. Do this by clicking
on the image and dragging one of the corner arrows.
- To ensure everything looks just right go to File, Print Preview.
- Print a "cut to size" test sheet to be certain that the font,
font size and placement of your message will be as you desire. Make any necessary
adjustments, then print your invitations.
Tip - Mark an X on one side of the test sheet prior to printing. This will
help you determine which way up to place the invitation in the printer.
Make Your Own Free Printable Invitations
There is a very simple process involved in making free graduation printable invitations. There are also advanced techniques which will produce great invites with washed out backgrounds, and lots more!
The simplest process is:
- Open a new doc in your word processing tool and set up the page size - choose
File and Page setup.
- Now right-click your mouse over the clipart (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.
- Lastly, add some text and use some word art as well to personalize it.
Using this simple process should give you well designed invitations on your PC, ready to print in a short time. I use "Microsoft Word" and "Paint", which you my well have on your PC.
The printable graduation invitation here has a blue frame. You might like another color such as the graduate's favorite colors or school colors.
The clip art symbol used above is a cap. Again, you my wish to choose your own clip art. You could have a graduation scroll or a symbol that really represents the graduate.
For a large selection of clip art and full instruction on exactly what to do see
the graduation clip art page.
Using clip art you can make cap envelopes, cap favor tags, blue place cards, blue party hats, blue game certificates, blue T-shirts, and blue save the date fridge magnets.
Free Graduation Invitations Paper
For a design with a frame and clip art you may want to take the simpler option and use white paper.
The white printer paper that you may well use already is just perfect. However I prefer to use cardstock to give a higher quality feel.
As well as printable graduation invitations, the same paper can be used for cap thank you notes, cap place cards and cap announcements.
Free Printable Graduation Invitations Wording
Your printable graduation invitations do need to cover the basic information for your guests. Time, date, venue, dress code, food and drink arrangements, theme and RSVP details.
