Celebrate Graduation with Pear Tree Greetings {Thank You Cards Giveaway}


It's a fairly common consensus among adults that we wouldn't want to go back and relive high school all over again. Even if you had the best of friends and the most wonderful teachers and danced your heart out at your prom, there's still a decent chance that you have a list of things that you would like to turn to the former you and ask What in the world are you thinking?

But one thing that I do look back on (for high school as well as college) as a fun and positive time was graduation. After all of the work that was put into the previous 16+ years of schooling, it's about time to celebrate that accomplishment, isn't it? And one of the important aspects of graduation that goes along with donning a cap and gown and accepting a diploma has to be sharing the good news with family and friends.

So when your child is preparing to graduate, whether from preschool, kindergarten, high school or college, you can help them share their pride with the world by turning to Pear Tree Greetings for all of your graduation announcements and more.

graduation announcements

Offering announcements, invitations, thank you cards and more (even napkins!), Pear Tree Greetings has the products for graduation that can help make the event special. I appreciate that they offer such a wide variety of designs, while also giving customers the ability to customize their purchases so that they fit for their personality and event — pick the right photo placement, change the design colors to match your school colors, and more.

I am especially partial to the photo graduation announcements, as I believe that seeing the happy celebrant is the best way to share the great news. Pear Tree Greetings' wide variety of options ensure that whether you have a single favorite image or a series of them showing changes throughout the years, you'll find the style card that works for you.

I love the extreme simplicity and modern design of the Modern Emblem Photo Graduation Invitation...

...while at the same time, the ability to include a dozen photos from over the years in the Year by Year Collage Photo Graduation Invitation gives me a big grin. It's just too cute!

As the colors of each announcement are so bright and vivid and with personalization options at every turn, the possibilities are endless when it comes to finding just the right one for your graduate. Whether you are interested in elaborate and creative or simple and straightforward, the hardest part of shopping at Pear Tree Greetings has always been deciding on a favorite.

And even though I don't have a high school or college graduate just yet, I love the adorable options that Pear Tree Greetings has for the younger crowd as well. I have no doubt that Big Sister E would think it was really cool to send out announcements sharing in the excitement of completing preschool!

The Alphabet Bash and the Top of the Class kids' graduation cards are just such a fun way to pass on the good news or to invite people over for a picnic or afternoon in honor of this accomplishment. After all, it's important to celebrate preschool, kindergarten, and middle school so that kids will be excited to move on to bigger and better graduations, right?

I wish I had known then that if you don't complete college immediately, you never will. I did three years, said I would pay for my then husband to finish, then it would be my turn, but that never happened. I should have insisted on going first :D

Stacy said...

I wish I had looked at more colleges, and looked at them thoroughly. I applied to a few schools and chose the one I thought was most prestigious, and I was miserable! I ended up transferring to another school, where I blossomed. I would've saved myself some money and some stress if I had picked a college based on what I wanted to study rather than where I felt like I "deserved" to be.
