  • We keep displaying posters designed by our users on the public gallery. Make sure to give them a look for some creative ideas.
  • Understand the difference between the Collage Maker and the Poster Maker. If you’re going to include 20 or more photos, opt for making a collage and not a poster.

When to Give the Grad Poster

Many families and friends hold a graduation party to celebrate the monumental ceremony. You can either present the poster during the party or on the actual day of graduation. It all depends on how close you are to the graduate and what you think will be most appreciated. You can also ask other family and friends on when they plan on giving their gifts to the graduate and coordinate accordingly.
