GraduationSource has over 80 stoles in different colors, designs, and sizes in stock and ready to ship. While we highly recommend these for any school or individual, there may be something missing. You may want to add your school name, initials, position, or even have multiple colors. Great news, we have you covered! Our stoles are fully customizable to suit your school or organization’s needs. Here are the steps we take to create the perfect academic stole for you.
Your first step in ordering a stole is to choose a base color. We offer 15 colors that are shown on our website. However, if you don’t see the color you want, don’t hesitate to ask!
What kind of stole do you want? Adult or Child, V-Stole, Stole with a Trim? You can discuss all of your options with our sales team. We provide standard-sized stoles and extended lengths as well (ex: 65”, 70”, 77”, etc.)
If you are getting any text on your stoles, we will need to know whether or not you want it screen printed or sewn. If using a logo, embroidery will only be an option if you can supply the original file and is not overly detailed. Otherwise, we can imprint almost anything. Our dedicated sales team will help you decide your best option.
Provide us with the text and/or artwork you would like to have applied to the stole. Specify where on the stole you want the design or wording.
We will need you to choose colors for any logo or text that will be embossed onto the stole.
If you already know the font you’d like, let us know. Otherwise, we can discuss what lettering options we have available.
Send us any helpful resources to make your stole perfect. If you have an original copy of the logo or legible copies of artwork needed, please supply this to your sales representative.
Once you provide us with all of the details stated above, we can provide you with an official price quote without any commitments.
After you approve your price quote, we will create an artwork mock-up for you. Typically we will send 2 or 3 variations for you to view. You may go back and forth with your dedicated rep a few times until we have created exactly what you envisioned.
Since all custom items take anywhere from 4-6 weeks, it is important to discuss your need-by or ceremony date with our sales team. We strongly advise customers to begin this process a couple months prior to the event in case of any manufacturing errors or delays.
Once you approve your complimentary estimate and mock-up, we will convert it into a sales order. You will have one more chance to review or make any last minute adjustments if needed. After deciding to proceed with the order, you will submit payment (instructions provided by your rep/confirmation email) and we can begin creating your custom stoles.
Here at GraduationSource, we take pride in supplying your organization and school with stunning, high-quality stoles. You will not regret providing your students or organization members with our fully customizable stoles for their next ceremony. Interested? Click here to request a quote.
