What Should I Write on a Graduation Thank You Card?

Is there a particular memory that meant a lot to you, or really helped you, no matter how insignificant it may seem?

Tell them how significant it truly was. Be honest and grateful.

Just like a well-written paper, a well-written note shows that there was thought and emotion put into it, which shows to the receiver that they are important and that you truly care.

When Should You Send Thank You Notes?

If you want it to have an effect, you should definitely send it at graduation or if it is in response to a gift, within the week after.


Congratulations on your graduation, we hope that you feel accomplished, but remember that you couldn’t have done it alone.

Hopefully, these messages will help you to show the gratitude your support deserves!
