While we may be called CollegeWear, Inc., our custom graduation stoles and sashes can be worn by anyone and everyone, regardless of what education level you’re are at! Are you a high school senior graduating this year? Then this guide is for you!  Get your very own custom graduation stole, perfect for your ceremony or as a keepsake of your high school achievements!

Step 1: Speak to Your High School Advisors

Every high school operates differently, and may have different rules and regulations in place for your graduation ceremony. If so, before you start your order, ask your high school advisors and staff if your graduation ceremony will allow custom regalia such as a graduation stole or sash.

If your school doesn’t allow you to wear customized graduation stoles or sashes during your ceremony, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get one! Custom stoles are still a great way to have a more fun, personalized way to celebrate your high school experience. Even if you can’t wear it on your big day, you can still frame it or display it with your diploma and so much more. Alongside that, they look great in graduation photoshoots as well!

Step 2: Get Help from Your Parents

If you are under the age of 17, get your parents or guardians involved! Ask for permission to order your very own custom graduation stole, so that they can help you place the order! Your family can be a great resource in helping ensure you can make your special day even more special. 

Step 3: Design Your Stole

Once you have figured out your school’s graduation attire policies, and gotten permission or assistance from your family/guardians to place an order, then you are ready to head on over and start designing a custom graduation stole using the CollegeWear, Inc. Stole Design Tool!

NOTE: While our current stole design tool is made with college and university students in mind, there are plenty of tools and freedom to make your stole fit your own high school needs. If you need assistance in uploading any custom logos or icons from your high school into our app, feel free to reach out to us for assistance!

Step 4: Place Your Order

After you have finished your custom stole design, then you are ready to place your order! Remember, if needed, please seek assistance from your parents or guardian for the payment process. Once we receive your order, we will reach out to you once the production process begins, and you will receive updates when your stole is ready to be shipped!

Please note that custom graduation stoles can take up to 2 weeks to manufacture and ship, so make sure you place your orders as early as possible before your graduation!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What should I put on my stole or sash?

A: That is up to you to decide! You can keep it simple by adding your school’s logo, school’s name, and graduation year. Or, take it one step further and add club or sports team names with the years you participated, your academic achievements, the logo of the college you are attending, or small dedications to your teachers or others in your life that helped you reach your goals. There is no right or wrong way to design your stole – this is all about you and what you want to see represent your high school experience!

Q: My school says I need permission to use their logo on my stole. What do I do?

A: Contact us with your question and what school you attend, and we can help you get the logo licensed and approved so you can have it on your stole!

Q: If I am over 18, can I buy a custom graduation stole without parental/guardian permission?

A: Yes! As long as you have a way to pay for it through our online ordering system.

Q: How long do custom graduation stoles take to ship?

A: 2 weeks. Rush production is available as well!

Q: When should I order my custom graduation stole?

A: At least 1-2 months before your graduation date, but the earlier the better, as the volume of requests become larger closer to graduation season (May/June) and thus orders may experience delays.
