SEED PCS of Washington D.C. is the Nation’s first public charter boarding school. Every year they have AlphaGraphics of Alexandria and Arlington create a very elaborate and ornate graduation box that consists of:
- · Tickets on metallic gold stock
- · Gold Foil Embossed Announcement Cards with Envelopes
- · Thank You Cards with Envelopes
- · Bookmarks with tassels
- · Name cards
- · Carrier Envelope
All of the above items are inserted in a special-order box and wrapped with a ribbon and a name card. This project requires multiple sequential steps on our part to ensure that the final product looks amazing. The announcement cards required us to print and then sent off to a partner that will perform the gold foil emboss, slit, and scorecards.
We ordered special gold metallic stock to print the bookmarks and the tassels to match the school’s burgundy color. We also coordinated the ordering of the ribbons that we tie around the boxes as well as special ordered the boxes that hold the graduation invite set.
After carefully monitoring that all of these items are printed accordingly, the order is accurate, and we’ve received everything on time, we then hand-assembled each box for each student.
Detailed spreadsheets help us keep track of what each box holds as well as the quantity per box of each item. This job requires extreme attention to detail and is very time-consuming. The end results speak for themselves—a stunningly beautiful graduation box that each student will treasure for a lifetime.
