One thing for sure, Basic Invite has plenty of designs that can help you create personalized graduation invitations and announcements and can help you find the best option to celebrate your graduation in the perfect way.
Graduation Invitations or Graduation Announcements?
Another topic of debate regarding graduation invitations and announcements is the difference between the two. Lucky for you, Basic Invites has them both! Let’s talk about the differences between the two.

Graduation invitations are an invite to the formal graduation ceremony held by your school. You should only send invitations to people you want to attend the actual ceremony either face-to-face or online. The invitation should include all the specific information about the event:
- Graduate’s name
- Name of the school or university
- Graduation year
- Location, time, and date of the graduation ceremony
- RSVP information
The purpose of Graduation announcements is simply to provide details about your diploma or degree, without actually inviting the recipients to the ceremony. Details about the actual event can be left off graduation announcements. You can include the graduate’s name and graduation year and a declaration like, “announcing the graduation” or “class of 2022”.

Conversations about graduation gift etiquette varies from source to source. I’ve seen so many opinions about what’s proper and what’s not. Over and over again, I’ve seen that if you are invited to attend the ceremony (graduation invitation), you should bring a gift.
On the other hand, if you receive a graduation announcement, you’re not obligated to give a gift.
However, if you receive a graduation party invite, you should bring a gift.
I say that you can do whatever your heart (and your wallet) compels you to do.
Gifts.com has more details, including tips and ideas, about graduation gift etiquette.
Graduation parties have become increasingly more popular as schools and colleges have begun limiting the number of people who can attend the graduation ceremony. Graduates and their families are proud and want to celebrate the memorable occasions and graduation parties are a way to do that.
