New Adventures Ahead: Designing Your Graduation Announcement

This post is in partnership with Minted. Don’t worry, though: I only share brands I support wholeheartedly here on Always, S. Thanks for reading!

Whew! It’s been a while, huh? These last couple of months have FLOWN by. If you’re following me over on my personal instagram, you’ll see that I’ve been as busy as ever. I haven’t been able to stay in one place for a while. Anyways, I’m here today to talk to you about my most favorite thing: STATIONERY.

Seriously. I love letters, handwriting, cards, mailing the old fashioned way…all of it. I’m partnering up with Minted to tell you alllll about my stationary favorites, specifically for one BIG event: graduation.



I’m a sucker for simplicity, so my eye was first drawn to the announcements with minimal design and pretty handwriting.

Next, you know I love a good story. The new 2017 Graduation Collection has plenty of cards so you can tell your family and friends all about your big adventure!

Whenever I get a card in the mail, whether it’s a Christmas card, save the date, or graduation announcement, I always pay attention to the photography. Minted did a lovely job designing many layouts that allow you to share your prettiest picture:

Tell me: what’s your favorite?

Don’t forget to share this post with someone who’s walking across that graduation stage soon!

    lovin the first option! I’m obsessed with stationary too- it’s a problem, I have an entire desk drawerful and barely ever use any of it because apparently I’m also a hoarder lol

  • Aw how cute! I don’t even remember if I sent out a graduation announcement, haha. Love your personalizations, though!
