Amazon sells packages of 50 5-1/2 square invitation envelopes for shipping from Rile Designs. Just make sure you get your envelopes ordered first!!
It only costs about .10 cents per sheet for printing, so this is really super cheap.
This ends up being a 5 x 5 square announcement (you will need a cutting tool to trim off the excess).
I decided to make my own Grad Announcements using Pic Monkey (my go-to photo editing source). I find there are so many ways to use the freebies that I haven't yet had to.
I selected Create a Collage, uploaded three pictures and chose the Square Deal with four equal squares.
One of my son's teachers is the groundskeeper for the site, so they were able to take pictures there for no fee.
Paper Craft Graduation Invitation Card Ideas
There's an old stone house, some huge trees, and it's right on the water. We ended up with a CD of several dozen pictures to choose from, with the photographer's permission to do what we wanted with them.Nonetheless, there are some strategic ways to save some big bucks if you plan ahead!One of the ways I've saved some major dollars is by NOT going with the school photographer for grad pictures and announcements.Wondering how I got the chevron-like feature on either side of the date?I went into Overlays, Arrows and selected one of the arrow points (missing the tail).What better occasion to bring together your nearest and dearest for a party!Before you even start thinking about graduation invitations, it’s important that you know exactly what you are interested in.By resizing, changing the color and putting three side by side, it makes a really neat and custom chevron feature.My son sat with me and helped choose the colors (his school colors), fonts and features.I enlisted the help of a local photographer, who happens to be a friend.She knows our family and my son was more comfortable with her than he would have been with a complete stranger.
