The standard mortarboard is a polyester encased cardboard square that sits on top of the head. Mortarboards are traditionally used for primary and secondary school graduations.

  • How do I know which size to choose?

    We offer three sizes: Small, Medium, and Large. If you are unsure of your baseball cap size, you will need to measure your head using a tape measure. If you didn’t have a measuring tape on hand, you can use a string to wrap around the head then measure it with a ruler afterward. Tams have a stretchy elastic band that has some give but make sure you choose the size closest to your measurement.
