    How to wear graduation caps, gowns, and tassels.
    Visit our "How to Wear" blogs for instructions on how to wear graduation caps, gowns, and tassels.  You will also find instructions on which way to move a graduation tassel and when.  Click here to visit our blogs.

    Will the caps and gowns I receive exactly match the colors on your website?
    Gown colors may appear slightly different for several reasons.  Monitor and web browser settings may cause colors to vary on your monitor.  Also caps and gowns are made from a shiny polyester material that reflects light.  For this reason gowns may lighter when outside on a sunny day than they would indoors.  

    Is Budget Graduation's website secure?

    How do I care for my gown?
    You may steam clean the wrinkles from your gown and then hang it to keep it wrinkle free.  We do not recommend washing or dry cleaning gowns.
