10 Graduation Thank You Cards to Send to Your Personal Cheer Squad

College graduates throw their caps in the air

Graduating from high school or college is a major accomplishment — one that takes years of studying and dedication. The second you cross that stage, grab your diploma, and toss your cap in the air, you’re able to celebrate with all the friends, family, and mentors who supported you for the past four years. Chances are, many of those same supporters will send you presents, cards, and checks after your commencement address. To show your appreciation, it’s customary to send a graduation thank you card to every person who gave you a gift.

Why should you send a graduation thank you note? First and foremost, it’s polite — showing the recipient their gift didn’t go unnoticed. Secondly, it shows friends and family you appreciate their support and encouragement. Within each message, include a sentence or two on your future plans and explain how that person’s support or gift made that future possible.

Your graduation gifts come from people who want nothing but the best for you. These people see your potential and are excited about what the future holds for you — more than you know. Below, we’re sharing 10 of our favorite graduation cards to send to your personal fan club.

A little girl hangs over her dad's shoulders as he reads his father's day cards

Father’s Day is almost upon us, and now is the perfect time to start thinking about the holiday — a day to honor and celebrate the many fathers in our lives. Whether that’s your father, your children’s father, or a father figure you’ve always looked up to, you can make their day special by writing them hilarious or heartfelt Father’s Day cards.

While Mother’s Day was established in the 1860s, Father’s Day wasn’t formally founded until 1910. The celebration is meant to honor all fathers and recognize the importance of fatherhood. Father’s Day is now a staple in our yearly calendar alongside events like Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and New Year’s. While the date changes every year, it’s always held on the third Sunday of June in the United States. So, mark your calendars!

To help you make the most of the holiday this year, here’s our guide on what to write in your Father’s Day cards, as well as some ideas to help you celebrate with loved ones.

10 Open House Invitations Reminding You to Leave the Door Open

Two open house invitations with a spring of greenery and a wood trivet

Leave your arms and doors wide open, because you have an open house to plan. An open house isn’t limited to any one event or milestone. In fact, it can be for personal or business purposes and hosted at your home address, place of employment, or even on your neighborhood block. Whatever the occasion, you’ll need to send out an open house invitation to welcome friends, neighbors, vendors, and colleagues to the event.

So, what’s the difference between an open house and a more traditional party? An open house implies guests can come and go as they please within a specified window of time. No one arrives “fashionably late” at an open house (great news to your typically-tardy friends), and there is no set agenda. Friends and neighbors can arrive whatever time suits them, enjoy snacks or a beverage, and mingle with other guests.

You can throw an open house for your business’s grand opening and holiday party or for a relative’s high school graduation. Below, you’ll find 10 of our favorite open house invitations fit for a number of celebrations.
