The Best Time to Send Graduation Announcements

Graduation announcements are an important way to share the good news of your milestone with family and friends. But when is the best time to send out your graduation announcements?

The most important thing is to give yourself enough time for people to be able to receive and respond to your announcements. Sending out your announcements too early may mean that people will forget to respond in time, while sending them too late may mean there isn’t enough time for people to respond.

As a general rule of thumb, graduation announcements should be sent out six to eight weeks before the graduation ceremony date. This should give people enough time to receive the announcement and respond with a gift or card if they wish.

If you’re sending out announcements for college graduation, you may want to send them out earlier, as family and friends may need to make travel arrangements. In this case, sending out the announcements at least 8-10 weeks before the ceremony would be ideal.

When sending out graduation announcements, make sure to include the date and time of the graduation ceremony and any other information your family and friends may need to know.

Once you’ve sent out your graduation announcements, following up with any family or friends who have not responded is important. This may mean sending a polite reminder a few weeks before the ceremony or even a quick phone call.

With these tips in mind, you can ensure your graduation announcement is sent out at the perfect time, giving your family and friends plenty of time to respond and celebrate with you.
