Graduation Announcements

A representative from CB Announcements comes to PUC in February to assist seniors with ordering announcements.  Information will also be at the PUC Bookstore for you to review. 

Announcements may be ordered directly from the company.

Once an order is placed, announcements are sent via ground shipping, which takes 5-7 days.  Overnight or two-day delivery is also available.  If you need to make changes to an existing order, call the toll free number and give your order number.  You may order more announcements after graduation, as there is no deadline for ordering.
