Tassel and Year-Date
The metallic year is called a tassel drop or signet. We carry the current year, most prior years going back about ten years, and sometimes the next future year. We cannot make a special tassel-drop at this time, and all tassel drops are pulled from our stock and not cast on-site.
These types of graduation gowns are called our Keeper line of gowns. These caps and gowns are made from polyester fabric. Ideal for single-use or as a souvenir during a school commencement ceremony. These gowns are usually used by high schools, middle schools, elementary schools, community colleges, and some four-year colleges and universities. If you are looking for a matte color, more durable gown, or a professional robe, please return to our front page and take a look at our Academic Regalia section.
The fabric is lightweight, shrink resistant, mildew resistant, and quick drying. It is also strong, resistant to stretching, most chemicals, and abrasion. They are reliably resilient and crisp when wet or dry, and retain heat-set pleats and creases. These robes can be washed in ordinary washers and dryers, though we do not recommend you do so very many times as they are not intended for long-term use. These gowns can fade from long exposure to the sun.
