Glossary of Terms
– We offer white or ivory vellum paper. Vellum is a rich, smooth finish
Embossing – A printing method where an image is pressed into paper
resulting in a raised design. The embossing is
termed “blind” because the design is formed without
ink or foil.
- An image is stamped onto paper without
ink or foil; it appears
– Similar to blind embossing, only this type of
printing uses foil on the raised area to add drama
– Adding a resin powder to wet ink, which when
heated, creates a raised surface to create this type
– The traditional set of two envelopes is used
with announcements. The outer envelope is addressed
to the guest. The inner envelope, with the
announcements and enclosures, are enclosed inside
the outer envelope. The inner envelope carries only
the guests’ names. The inner envelope is not
gummed and is not sealed.
When sending your announcements...
* Announcements should be mailed early enough to arrive two weeks before graduation.
* The larger envelope with the gummed flap is the outside envelope. It should be addressed by you personally and with a minimum of abbreviations. If you wish, your return address can be written on the back.
* The smaller envelope without the gummed seal is designed to hold your announcement. The
name of the person(s) to whom it is sent should be written as if you were addressing them in person. For example: Grandma and Grandpa,
Uncle John and Aunt Mary.
* Your personal name card can be inserted opposite the announcement text in the slots provided.
* The announcement should be placed in the inside envelope with folded edge down and front of announcement facing the envelope flap. The flap should not be tucked inside the envelope.
* The smaller envelope should be inserted inside the larger one
with flaps facing the same way. Seal the outside envelope and mail first class.
The graduation announcement is a way of informing your family and friends of an important milestone in your life. It is not considered a request for gifts, so send to all who have a close personal interest in you as you graduate.
