Before ordering graduation announcements, keep in mind these helpful tips.

Photo Quality  When uploading photos, our uploader will alert you if your photo is not a high enough quality for printing. Please note that some photos taken with camera phones, and most photos downloaded from FaceBook or other social media sites, will not be a high enough quality for printing.

School Colors  See a design you like but don’t see your school colors? Place your order then contact us at with your order number and preferred school colors. We will modify your card design to include your school colors and email you a proof for your approval. Please note that this will increase production time for your order.

When to Order  The average order will arrive 10 business days after it is placed. Allow enough time for mailing invitations to your recipients. Graduation invitations should be sent four weeks before the graduation event.


Share your success with customized graduation announcements. Include a photo and ceremony details. It’s easy to show pride for your alma mater when you can choose from several school color palettes. CardsDirect party invitations are perfect for a grad celebration. They are easily customizable and you can even upload a senior portrait to turn any invitation into a keepsake. And don’t forget the thank-you notes. Show just how smart you are by sending a timely message of appreciation. Our blank notecards can be customized to include your first and last name. Your custom notecards will be a perfect tool as you begin your professional career after graduation.

Heck, we're almost an antique in "internet years". Founded in 1998, we wanted to create a company that made sending custom cards easy. We never expected that solving that problem would make all of the Fortune 100 companies (yes, all of them), along with thousands of small businesses and families across the country choose us. We really hope you like us too because we don't plan on going anywhere.


Everyone likes getting good grades. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) tracks and grades businesses for consumer fraud and ethical business practices… and we got an "A+"! CardsDirect has been a "BBB Accredited Business" since 2005, and is continually monitored on 16 rating factors. They like us, and we hope you will too!
