Do you have a home school student in your family graduating from high school? If so, congratulations! You are about to enter the exciting world of high school graduation announcements 2022 cards. Let me lend you a hand. In this brief, we are going to share important tips for letting creating graduation announcements for a home school graduation.
Font size is important
My first tip is, do not underestimate the importance of font size, typeface and design! Make sure that they are large and that there’s enough white space on the card so people will actually be able to read it. This one seems really obvious but it surprisingly is not for many people. Letters are not always enough.
Use attractive photography
Thanks to technology, we live in the world of digital photography. We can see snapshots or digital pictures before we even see them. Because of this, you don’t need to rely solely on letters to announce your student’s graduation. You can use photographs, video clips and even animated GIF files. Make sure you are creative though, so that the person mailed it will look as gorgeous as possible.
Big size is often better
Always make sure that the font is large enough to read. However, make sure there’s enough room on the card for text and pictures as well as a small amount of extra space to deal with any small mistakes or adjustments. You never know what may end up being cropped out of your announcement if you don’t leave extra room. Be colorful and bright
Bright and vibrant colors are great for grad announcements.
After looking at your student’s academic history, you probably know his or her favorite colors. If not, be sure to include the school colors with your homeschool graduation announcements. Consider the design
Consider the design
Your graduation announcement should look good even if it gets tossed into a pile of others; that’s why it’s important to consider the design as well. You want them to stand out and look like they don’t belong in anyone else’s stack of envelopes. Keep it simple
Keep it as simple as possible
If you are a first-time home school teacher, I recommend keeping it as simple as possible. For example, instead of using fancy fonts and cool drawings, try to stick to basic lettering and pictures of your student if at all possible. Keep the locations of all the important information clearly labeled so that people can read it easily. Don’t cram!
When creating the physical cards for students, sometimes we just have too much information. I’ve seen some really amazing and creative cards that are jam packed with information but they look like they were printed on the back of a grocery bag. That’s why I recommend keeping your cards as simple as possible.
Consider purchasing custom made designs online
Many websites such as Basicinvite.com Etsy and PixelBuddy allow you to browse for background graphics, fonts and graphics such as photographs, greeting cards and many more. If you are not quite happy with the design you see on the web, ask them to customize it or they can even create something new just for you!
