A choice demanding consideration. Jostens is proud to offer two exceptional gown collections for students and faculty — one based in tradition, and one with a very clear environmental message for the future. BDG Collection™: Traditional with timeless details, this true classic offers a matte finish with enduring color. Made of 100% breathable polyester, this gown is lightweight and wrinkle-resistant. Elements Collection®: Made with premium quality and design, the Elements Collection is made from fiber obtained from renewable managed forests — providing exceptional drape and heightened comfort. The fabric used in the Elements Collection cap, gown and hood shell is a USDA certified biobased product and has been shown in scientific tests to biodegrade under controlled conditions.* This gown sets the standard and sends a responsible message. Jostens offers a full line of color options for both the Elements and BDG collections. Contact your Jostens representative to find the right color that will correctly display your college brand. *In a laboratory test conducted by an independent testing facility in accordance with
ASTM D5511 and ISO 15985, biodegradation of 85.5% was achieved within two months under specific temperature and humidity conditions. Results under different conditions or at landfills in your area may vary and continued decomposition rates are unknown.
