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.
