Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 10, 2009
This year, trendsetters are electing to make one of a kind graduation announcements at Silver Papery. While pre-made, traditional school announcements have been around for many years and are very functional, some of this year's graduates prefer to use their creativity to design an announcement that is truly original. These announcements use their favorite colors, motifs, add-ons, and other elements to better express their individual personalities and style. See photo below.
Said Kathy Schwartz, Silver Papery owner, "Customers are starting to realize the custom possibilities that are available for creating announcements these days. Our staff enjoys consulting with the graduates about their unique ideas and seeing the creations that they come up with by using our special papers and pre-stocked embellishments."
Following are tips for creating Graduation Announcements from the staff at Silver Papery:
1. Start with a blank sheet of cardstock in a school color or favorite color. Cardstock is available in numerous colors. Add graphics and wording in another color. Add on a ribbon, jewels, or other embellishments for a unique finishing touch.
2. Start with a pre-designed invitation cardstock that suits a specific personality. Many all-purpose invitations can work for this type of announcement. Add on a raised cut-out of a mortarboard or diploma to incorporate the graduation theme. Go to http://www.silverpapery.com/index.php?cPath=21_26 for ideas.
3. Build an announcement around a favorite photograph. Choose a blank sheet of cardstock. Have a photo sized to fit the cardstock and reproduced, leaving room for copy. Affix the photo to the card. (Alternatively, have a photo digitally printed on cardstock. Several invitation vendors, such as Take Notice, specialize in this process.)
4. Choose an announcement from an album focused on graduation, such as the Carlson Craft Graduation Album, and customize it with the many choices available including ink colors, fonts, motifs, add-ons.
Paper store staff can assist you with announcements. There is an extra fee for store assembly.
