Making Graduation Invitations Instructions

Home >> Making Graduation Invitations

The instructions you need to help you copy, print and personalize the free printable graduation invitations available on this site.

The instructions for making graduation invitations from the free invites on this site are easy to do. First you can choose a graduation invitation from: 

How to Copy the Invite to MS Word

 Right-click your mouse over the top of one of the free graduation 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 Personalize Your Invite

Copy and Paste the above invitation into your word processing tool – to do this just right-click over the image and choose “copy” and then open a new doc in your word processing tool and right-click your mouse and choose “paste”.

2. Now, 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. 

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

4. 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) but if you choose to hand write those you are inviting on your invitations then I'd recommend a Calligraphy Kit.

How to Print your Invite

Assuming you have followed the steps above to copy and paste the document into your word processing tool, next:

1. Set the printer to the desired paper size. 

2. Adjust the margins to zero. 

3. 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. 

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

5. 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.
