Balfour offers personalized graduation announcements.
These announcements include your name, degree, and major. They must be ordered directly from Balfour and delivery is usually three to five weeks. There is an example of the announcement on their website along with the order form. Balfour also has a variety of other graduation products available. Remember that you are sending announcements, not invitations. Therefore, it is never too late to place your order – you can send announcements after you graduate if you wish!


Information about class rings can be obtained through the bookstore. Call 434-791-5640 or 1-800-AVERETT (283-7388) ext. 15640.

Announcement and class ring information both come from Balfour. Click here to visit their website, or call 1-877-Balfour.
