Graduation season is here!

Graduation is such a special time—a time to celebrate achievements, the end of one chapter of life, and the beginning of a new one. If you have a graduate in the family (or maybe it’s you!), Archiver’s has lots of ideas and supplies to help you celebrate accomplishments, host an unforgettable party, and preserve the memories afterward!



Start with a one-of-a-kind announcements and invitations!

Make an announcement or invitation that stands out among the rest in the mailbox! Not only are handmade announcements and invitations much more special, but they can be customized to match school colors or your grad’s personal style. Choose a simple design, or choose something more elaborate. Include a photo or go without. It’s totally up to you! Archiver’s has all of the supplies you need—colorful cardstock, pre-cut cards, envelopes, patterned paper and embellishments in lots of styles, stamps, and much more.

Create beautiful keepsakes to display at the party (and after, too)!

Instead of a poster or photo display that gets thrown away after the party, why not create something you can display long after the fun is over? Create one-ofa-kind wall art—starring your graduate! It’s fun and easy to make, and can be personalized to showcase school memories, senior year, school sports or activities, and more. Display your creation at the party and then proudly hang it on the wall after!

Make a special scrapbook, full of school memories!


A scrapbook full of school memories makes a lovely display at any graduation party, and is something your graduate will cherish long after, too. Creating a scrapbook doesn’t have to be difficult or take a long time to do, and the reward is most defi nitely worth it. No matter what type of scrapbook you want to create, Archiver’s has the supplies and helpful advice you need.

Pocket pages—with clear pockets you slide photos, journaling, or memorabilia into—make scrapbooking faster and easier. They’re available in lots of sizes to accommodate different-sized photos like 4x6, 5x7, and more, and can be dressed up with paper, stickers, rub-ons, and more if you want. Or, pick up a collection pack designed to work with pocket pages (like those from Simple Stories). Simply cut apart the pieces you like, slide them into the pockets, add photos and any embellishments, and you’re done.

If you want to create something more elaborate, the sky is the limit at Archiver’s! We have thousands of patterned papers and cardstock colors, embellishments in any theme you can think of, and other supplies to create a traditional scrapbook. Let us know what you’re looking for and we can help.
