The past few graduations that I have gone to, I don’t really ever know what to get. We love these DIY money leis, but my schedule has been super busy so I didn’t have time to put one of these together this time around.

Celebrating such a commemorative occasion is so important, so it is nice to give a gift card with a little keepsake that they can hold on to and remember for years. The kids and teens always just seem to want cash and gift cards. For this reason, we think that a graduation card online printable is a great place to start.

How to print greeting cards at home

Open up the PDF and set it to print. In the printer options pop-up box, you will select “scale to fit” and “2 copies per page” towards the bottom of the printer box. This should look similar in both Mac and Windows systems. Ensure that your printer is set to print in color and make sure that the print preview looks good before you click “print.”
