Why Work With Us
Caps, Gowns, & Tassels
Caps & Gowns
Our Caps & Gowns are available in a variety of colors and sizes to match your school’s style. The gown size is determined strictly by the height (caps are one-size-fits-all), and we do carry plus-size gown options. Our tassel inventory is vast, and your local rep will be happy to work with you to find the option that best fits your needs. Don’t see your school color here? Let us know and we can discuss custom ordering with you (minimum quantities may apply).
Diploma Cases & Autograph Books
Our deluxe padded diploma cases are available in two sizes - 6”x8” and 8.5”x11”. They are fitted with 8 corner tabs to hold your diploma on one side, and a photo of your choice on the other! This will make for a lifelong keepsake & memory of your students’ success. Our zippered autograph books make for great end-of-year elementary & middle school gifts, where students can write notes to each other before parting ways for the summer.
Cords, Stoles, and Accessories
For those students that have gone above and beyond academically or extracurricularly, it’s time to show some love! Our stock colors of cords and stoles are gold, white and royal - but our catalog of available options is vast. A quick discussion with your local rep will help you determine your needs for your graduation day.
