Are you graduating from college or graduate school?  I would just google graduation announcements and see what you find.  I bet vista print and places like that have announcements.

@Torrid:  Try invitations4Less.com.  I’ve ordered grad announcments for my 2 daughters.  They have great prices!

I made my own!!! And printed them on nice cardstock.

They came out really nicely! My family was impressed with them. Etsy has some cute ones, too.

The school ones are insanely expensive! $$$

I made my own highschool graduation announcements using Microsoft Publisher and a photo editing program for a bit of graphic design πŸ™‚

I ordered gorgeous ones from etsy and then got them printed at officemax or something. It worked out really well. Including the etsy design (which was like $15), I think I paid $60 total for 75 invitations AND I splurged on this nice lustre paper. You could definitely do it cheaper with cheaper paper.

Soooo, this might be a US thing but what are graduation announcements? Are they kind of like Save-The-Date Cards that you mail out to say that you are graduating? Like the mail version of a newspaper engagement announcement?

I’ve never heard of them.                                                 

Also, congratulations!!! πŸ˜€

I used tinyprints.com a few years ago. They pretty much always have promo codes and i got mine at less than half what the official school issue ones would have cost.

I’ve never heard of these!  But wish i had because I always say my degree took far more talent,  hard work, and skill than just “deciding to never break up with my boyfriend” haha 

but I second vistaprint.

My high school graduation invites/announcements were from Target! I found them on clearance really cheap, in cream and navy. One of my school’s colors were navy, so it worked. I think they were technically wedding invites, but they were perfect for what I needed them for.

@Torrid:  Cool! I wish that was a done thing here but everyone would probably have thought that I was being super weird. Oh well.

I got 10 free through Shutterfly and a coupon code I searched for online!

VistaPrint always has FREE 10 announcement offers too.

I made my own, yesterday in fact. They look great – I made the text up on the computer (printed nicely at a printshop) and glued that to the underside of what I made to look like graduation caps. I just used some thin satin ribbon for tassles and a black button to make them on black cardboard. It worked out pretty cheap too and not hard at all!
