Unique, Artsy Graduation Set: a Design You've Seen Before
There's a lot of comfort in following the trends to a T and it's fascinating to watch how technology has changed "the lowly graduation announcement" since I ordered my own. That was a few years back and we had one option. Now there is no limit to the options from which we can choose. You can look at that as daunting or exciting. I see both sides and would likely react with equal scoops of both.
I decided to create a set of graduation-themed cards and items using one of the earliest pieces of digital art I designed when I first started dabbling in print on demand last year. The piece is called "Poet's Fancy" and I wrote quite a lot about it over here on my main website.
As of this writing, the collection has only 6 things:
- An announcement card
- Two 5x7 party invitations, one with a photo and one without,
- A party invitation post card,
- And two thank you cards.
Each of these features my red/teal/gold grungy art piece as a background, a primarily-white overlay with black borders, and a modern script font I love using for a primary phrase. All other text fields are editable by the graduate and can say anything you wish. You can even move all the parts around and make these invitations your own.
By the time this launches I'll probably have more items in the set. If so, they'll likely include one or more of the following:
- envelopes lined with the colorful artwork (which, incidentally, you can change to your own artwork, should you be so inclined,
- a coaster or 3 to use for your party or other event warranting a memento,
- a button or some buttons,
- maybe a magnet - Save the Date or otherwise,
- Aah! I need a Save the Date card and postcard too, don't I?
- Some US Postage Stamps (a couple of those have been designed and submitted for approval already,)
- and maybe a coozie, luggage tag, mousepad, phone case(s) and tote bag. And return address labels. Probably a mug.
As always, if you should find your way to this page and want to make a special request (whether you need this design actually available on a ping pong paddle for the graduate, a travel mug, or a spiral notebook journal,) please don't hesitate to reach out and let me know!
