Every year, it seems that someone we know has a kid that is graduating either high school or college. If it's your year to send off a new graduate, this article will help you spread the word about your favorite grad's big day with free printable graduation party invitations.
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.
- Dr Seuss "Oh! The Places You'll Go!"
If you're the proud parent or loved one of a grad and you're planning a big party, you've probably realized that you need to send out invitations. But what if you want to avoid spending a ton of money on card store stock? Don't you fret, because this is easy enough to do with a collection of free printable graduation invitations here from Bright Hub. And what is better than one collection of cards to choose from? How about three collections of cards to choose from? I've hand designed two packs of graduation cards for you, one with pictures, and one that is text only, and I've taken the time to include a third pack of blank inside cards for you to customize as you wish.

Photo, Blank inside
This pack includes the same invitations as the photo pack, but they have a blank inside rather than a place for date, time, etc. This makes them ideal for not only graduation invitations, but also graduation announcements, thank-you cards, and keepsakes. This also allows you to easily customize each of these invitations with your favorite photo editing software such as Photoshop or Gimp. These also use a quarter fold card template.
