CAPS, GOWNS AND ACCESSORIES Herff Jones offers the most eco-friendly gown programs in the industry. Our unique CustomRental™ program offers an unprecedented level of personalization and branding specific to your university. From custom-dyed colors to expert stitching, braiding, embroidery or patches of your school seal, crest or logo. Your graduates are provided a graduation experience that shows off as much school pride on the outside as they feel on the inside. For the highest level in sustainability, choose Earthgrad fabric. Earthgrad is made from 100 percent recycled materials. Our ClassRental™ gowns are offered in a variety of colors and are created with the same attention to detail as our custom apparel and Supreme Court Justice robes. Our inventory of nearly one million gowns offers the most accurate size availability. Gowns are distributed in prime condition and collected afterward at a convenient, predetermined time and place.


Our CustomKeeper™ program provides the opportunity to custom-design an academic outfit that instills pride in your students and brands your school. Your graduates are provided a permanent reminder of their educational experience.

Our ClassKeeper program provides your graduate with a keepsake of graduation day. Gowns are sized in two-inch increments and are three to six inches fuller in girth for a more comfortable fit. Extra large yoke gowns are available at no extra charge. Gowns are available in Graduate (matte), Renew™ (sustainable) and Premier (shiny) fabrics for ready-to-wear freedom. Our ClassKeeper gown made from Renew fabric allows us to create attractive regalia from postconsumer plastic bottles, offering a second use for PET (polyethylene terephthalate) material that would otherwise become part of a landfill. Commencement can now become a school’s latest effort in “going green.” Honor university dignitaries with custom designed and tailored academic regalia. This distinct cap and gown may feature exquisite velvet, intricate embroidery, expert braiding and stitching, as well as an additional fourth chevron. Your university president or chancellor will shine with pride. 5

TASSEL DROPS AND ZIPPER PULLS Own your commencement! By customizing your graduation gown accessories, you are turning a typical graduation gown into a point of pride for students and parents. One of the most treasured graduation keepsakes is the tassel. Customize your tassel drop or zipper pull with the school’s logo, seal or campus landmark, turning this keepsake into an iconic symbol of the graduate’s success. 6

STOLES OF GRATITUDE AND STUDY ABROAD INTERNATIONAL STOLES The Herff Jones Stole of Gratitude offers an opportunity for graduates to thank people who have helped them in their educational journey. The stole is worn by the student during the commencement ceremony or at another occasion where a presentation is appropriate. After the ceremony, the new graduate presents the Stole of Gratitude to a person who provided extraordinary support and turned a dream into reality. The Study Abroad International Stole celebrates the achievements of students who have chosen to study abroad or who have chosen to study at your university from another country. Herff Jones offers the stole in a style representing many countries. These stoles are finished in all satin and offer attendees a special opportunity to recognize those students who have “gone the extra mile� in their educational journey. The Tribute Stole may be offered as a gift to honor a veteran, active military member or devoted graduate who has chosen to join the military following graduation. The Tribute Stole is worn during commencement as a way to symbolize their service so those in attendance may show respect, honor, and most of all, express gratitude for their service and protection of our country. 7

GRADUATION ANNOUNCEMENTS AND ACCESSORIES Graduation from college is a once-in-a-lifetime achievement. Herff Jones helps students share their exciting news with family and friends through official Graduation Announcements, Thank You Notes, Personalized Notes, Envelope Seals and Appreciation Gifts. Custom Personalized Announcements (CPA) are the perfect way for students to announce their accomplishment. With the CPA program, announcements may be personalized with the student’s name, degree, major, specializations and honors. The front of the announcement may be customized to enhance your school’s branding efforts. 8

Graduates of any medical training institution have earned the right to wear a symbol of their accomplishment – and wear it proudly! They have chosen to dedicate their lives to the service of others.
