Every year a new host of graduating seniors embark on the next phase of their lives.

We mark their accomplishments with ceremonies rooted in centuries-old traditions, in which our graduating seniors don caps and gowns and collect their diplomas. Following the pomp and circumstance come a flurry of less formal graduation parties hosted by proud parents hoping to create an unforgettable sendoff for their kids. 

As a custom printing company, Printastik has been a part of celebrating Minnesota graduates for decades. Keep reading for graduation party ideas and supplies to make your grad’s night one to remember.

Show Them Where the Party’s At 

A great party starts before the guests have even arrived. Whether you’re throwing your graduation party at home, a park or a local business, it’s a good idea to mark the path for guests with custom balloons and signage. This will help guests find you and drum up the excitement for what’s to come. Digital printing adds polish and personality to your custom guideposts. Showcase your graduate’s school colors and favorite inside jokes as you guide friends and family to festivities. Mark the entrance with a banner featuring your grad’s senior picture, the event’s hashtag and more. 

Set the Scene for Celebration

A graduation party isn’t just about celebrating this milestone, but about the person they’ve grown into. A common sight at graduation parties is a photo wall, featuring school pictures, favorite moments and a few embarrassing snaps as well. Take the traditional photo display to the next level with wide format digital printing. You can print your own collages and photo timelines, or even blow up your favorite pictures to be featured on their own in poster form. Since your senior is a member of the Instagram generation, make your graduation party iconic with a custom step and repeat. Custom plates, cups and tablecloths can add even more personal flare and style to your celebration. 

Send Guests Home with Something Special

Everyone loves a swag bag. Send your guests home with a swag bag full of custom items like button pins, face masks, t-shirts and more. Your senior’s fellow graduates will appreciate having a one-of-a-kind frisbee to throw around their new campus or maybe a custom tote to carry their books. If you’re celebrating a student athlete, consider customizing golf balls, swim caps or basketballs to add to your party favors. Studious graduates and family may enjoy sending guests home with a custom pen to commemorate their academic achievements. A custom swag bag gives your guests a tangible reminder of how your graduating senior has touched their lives.
