How to Personalize Your Graduation Invitation Template

  1. Personalizing your graduation invitation template is easy, just follow the simple process. 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.

  2. Enter your own customized wording in the text box.

  3. 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 you are a computer whiz) but if you choose to hand write those you are inviting on your invitations then you might also consider using a calligraphy set.

How to Print your Graduation Invitation Template

Printing your graduation invitation template is simple to do.

  1. Open a word document.

  2. Set the printer to the desired paper size.

  3. Insert the image.

  4. Adjust the margins to zero.

  5. 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.

  6. To ensure everything looks just right go to File, Print Preview.

  7. 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 paper in the printer.


Make Your Own Graduation Invitation Template

In 5 minutes you can create your own smiley invitations using "Microsoft Word", "Paint" and clip art. There is a fun way to create your own graduation invitations. By creating your own design you can add colors, shapes, borders and the images that you wish.

Make Your Own - Simplest Version

  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 the clip art and full instruction on exactly what to do see the graduation clip art page,where you'll also find a great selection of clip art.

You can select any other clip art symbol of graduation or one that represents the graduate's hobbies, sports or pastimes.

You could make everything match by using the same clip art to make announcements and thank you notes, for example. 

Paper for your Printable Graduation Invitations

The simplest low cost solution is clearly white printer paper. This may be useful if you have full color backgrounds. 

I prefer to have a higher quality feel with thicker paper like cardstock or blank invitation paper. 

The same paper can be used to create lots of other graduation hat stationery such as announcements and thank you notes.

Wording for your Graduation Invitations

It is important to give your guests the venue, time, date, dress code, food and drinks arrangements and dress code. That alone can give you good wording.

However this is a special time that should be honored by using great wording. A graduation hat is a traditional symbol of graduation and can suit both formal and informal wording.

You can create great graduation invitation wording since you know the graduate and the guests very well. Also you may have jokes, personal characteristics, or funny stories you can use in the invitations. You could also incorporate meaningful wording from a poem, quote or song.
