Unique Graduation Invites

It’s harder to find unique graduation invites than you might think. Don’t get me wrong, there are heaps of gorgeous invites out there for graduation. However, I keep finding the same basic ideas, gold and black or black and white. These are great ideas, and I have a few of those myself because they work great for graduation. Nevertheless, I wanted to create a few unique graduation invites because I love graduation, it’s a fantastic feeling.

Today I’m sharing 40 unique graduation invitations. You’ll find 20 different themes below (yes, black with gold and black with white are included). I’m also giving away a free advice card. I love these cards for the graduate. People are going to give their opinion on your life anyway, mine as well get it in writing. 🙂 Get the card on the Journey Junkies page or sign up here if you’re not a member.


20 Themes & 40 Unique Invitations

The first design is a classic chalkboard. Chalkboard is perfect for graduation because, well, it’s school, right? There are so many different ways you can go with it too.

2. Travel

Next up is this travel design. It’s a personal favorite of mine as I love to travel. However, it also just works so well with graduation. I remember when I graduated from college and I felt the world was just waiting for me. Adventure was definitely out there, and school itself was also quite the adventure.

3. Grill & Chill

After all those finals are over what’s the one thing you really want to do? Chill. So have a grill and chill party to celebrate the end (or is it the beginning… I’m getting deep, I know).

This calculator design actually has a little bit of a funny story to it. My husband is a C.P.A. and when we got married I definitely wanted him to have a calculator shaped cake. He nixed that idea thinking it was too cheesy. However, I still love it and it inspired my calculator invite below.
