Need some inspiration? Scroll down to learn more!

Not sure how to design your custom graduation stole for your club, department, or even yourself? We’ve got you covered. Here are 5 ways you can design your graduation stole, for every kind of college group!

Medical Stole Ideas

In our Stole Design App, we have plenty of built-in symbols to choose from in the medical fields, including the RN symbol, caduceus, and Aesculapius. Of course, feel free to also use your school's or department's logos instead.

Suggested color(s): Green body, white trim (Why?)

Suggested addition(s): Medical symbols


Greek Life Stole Ideas

Our Stole Design App lets you easily incorporate your fraternity’s or sorority’s Greek Letters, crest, and even chapter onto the stole. If you want, you can change the orientation of the Greek letters as well. You can also take your design a step further and incorporate any custom lettering by importing them as a logo instead.

Suggested color(s): Your fraternity’s/sorority’s main colors

Suggested addition(s): Your Greek letters, crest, and/or chapter


Cultural/Country of Origin Stole Ideas

Whether you want to represent your identity, studied abroad, or you are a part of a cultural-based organization, we offer many types of cultural and flag stoles, as well as flag patches, to help you represent your heritage at graduation. You can even include characters from different languages.

Suggested stole type: Any cultural stole or flag stole related to your organization

Suggested addition(s): Flag patches (if you prefer a satin stole)


Student Government/Leadership Stole Ideas

Being a student leader or advocating for the needs of students can be challenging - so don’t make designing your graduation stole any harder than that! If you want to include text for your position, we recommend having vertically oriented, in order for it to be more visible.

Suggested color(s): Your school’s/organization’s colors

Suggested addition(s): Your position, your organization’s logo


Dedications/Awareness Stole Ideas

One of the new things we’ve added to our Stole Design App is the ability to add dedication and awareness ribbons embroidered anywhere on the stole. They come in a variety of colors, and are a great way to spread awareness or dedicate your achievements to a loved one.

Suggested addition(s): Awareness ribbons
