I am so excited to be sending out my graduation announcements this week (eek!). I really never thought these four years would come to an end. I have been telling myself I am ready for the real world since I was 16, and now that it’s here, well let’s just say it would feel bad to be 16 again. Wish me luck as I start on the job hunt.
I didn’t want to use my universities generic announcements letters they just felt so impersonal, and were outrageously expensive. Minted was so gracious to let me design my own personal graduation announcement cards on their website, and I couldn’t wait to show yall what I chose. They have dozens of graduation designs to choose from so you are sure to find something your style. I love the rose gold detail on the cover of my card, so me. I also enjoy that I get to incorporate images of myself, some of my friends and family members haven’t seen me in a while so this adds a nice personal touch.
When designing the card you can choose paper type, style, cut you would prefer for your card. Also you can choose to add additional inserts or envelope liners if you feel like getting fancy. Another feature I really loved about using Minted is that I was able to import my address book from my computer to their site, and then have them printed on the envelopes. This creates a clean and professional look, plus it’s a huge time saver. You also can have your return address printed on the back. Remember Minted offers custom cards for every occasion so even if you aren’t getting ready for graduation they have a card for your next upcoming event.
A little more about the preparation for graduation. My dress is still undecided, but my accessories are set. I think it is really fun to choose a few things to designate for a special day like a new perfume memories are triggered by scent so that perfume can be remembered as your graduation perfume. I also choose a new lipstick (06) that I will re-wear often and when I do I will remember my graduation day. Yes I know I don’t have a dress yet and graduation is two weeks away… but your gown covers it up anyway right? I decided I really wanted to splurge on a pair of cute shoes I will continue to wear than a dress I will likely on wear once or twice. These Kate Spade flats are to die for. They are so comfortable and just stinking cute. I know I will be getting a lot of use out of them.
