Just because you are working with a budget, doesn't mean you have to skimp on what the cards will look like. Sure, mass-produced, generic graduation cards are cheap, but they can be boring and unoriginal. Sometimes, they don't even catch people's attention and they won't even bother reading them. There are many sites on the internet that offer custom made cards at a very inexpensive rate or you can use computer programs to create the cards and print them out yourself. Make the cards the way you want them to look. Add your personality to them. They can be as wacky or as formal as you want. Just make them your own.
Another way to save money on graduation cards is to find package deals. There are many stores that offer card designing services that give special discounted prices for packages. Same goes for online shops. In fact, online shops are cheaper since you don't have to go drive around and look for different shops to compare prices and designs. When purchasing or making your graduation cards online, you can ether print them out directly or the shop will make them for you and ship them to your house.
