20 Unique Graduation Announcements for 20 Personality Types

Posted by Ellie Pickett on

One of the best parts of this world is how truly unique every single person is, which is why having Unique Graduation Announcements that match your original style is important. Without a totally original look for your graduation cards and invitations, it would be nearly impossible to document this momentous event in a way that was memorable and had an impact. Everything about the graduation season is purposeful, meaningful, and should have a lasting memory.  From the gown, to the party, to the gifts, and the announcements, it truly is a time to highlight the graduating high school senior -- who they are, what they love, where they're going, celebrating where they've been and how far they've come.

When looking through the enormous variety of invitations and announcements for graduation that are available out there, follow a few rules and you'll find one that kicks off graduation the right way, just perfectly for you and your unique self! We've thought up 20 different personality types that we have specifically designed graduation photo cards for. Of course, there are never-ending unique personalities, which is why we also do totally custom design work upon request, but we have had incredible feedback about our designs and how perfectly some of them match the college or high school seniors they are for.  Add a unique design to a card that has lots of pictures, and you have a truly one-of-a-kind photo card that you will be proud to send out, and that everyone will love to receive. These designs are the type that you want extras of to pass down to future generations.  These are the styles that are so personalized and feel so custom, that grandparents will cherish and frame them for the mantle.  See if one of these categories fits you!  

1. Organized and Easy-Going Simplicity

We have a long list of designs that are geared toward this personality type.  Nothing too ornate, colorful, bold, or strong..  just simple, clean lines that reflect and highlight your true personality in your photos. Nothing distracting, but a perfect foundation for a beautiful, clean-looking, simple graduation card.  We have many examples of simplistic cards - here is one of our most popular designs.
