New Cap and Gown Colors

We ran a poll last season to see which new colors our customers most would like to see us carry.  Though not as high as the presidential election, the response level was amazing as many educators and administrators casted their votes.  

Preschool and Kindergarten Educators and Administrators overwhelmingly voted for graduation caps and gowns in Navy Blue, Purple, and Dark Green.  

Elementary, Middle & High School, and College Educators and Administrators voted for caps and gowns in Dark Green and White. 

It’s been said that there are emotional connections to color which got us to thinking…how do these colors make people feel?

Let’s first discuss the meanings and associations of the new preschool and kindergarten colored caps and gowns. Dark green has been linked with wealth, coolness and traditionalism. The color purple has been said to stimulate one’s imagination and creativity. It also is the color that denotes ambition. Navy has strong links to emotions as well. It conveys importance, confidence, power, and authority as well as intelligence, stability, unity, and conservatism. While these aren’t the typical adjectives we associate with preschool and kindergarten aged boys and girls, this might have a positive outlook on their future.

Now we move onto the two new colored robes available to those graduating from middle school, high school and college. We’ve already discussed the meaning of dark green. This color is especially important to those in this age range; Budget Graduation wants to inspire each and ever graduate to live to their full potential. White is the color representing perfection. Again to us this just means that you should always be striving to be the best you can be, both in and out of the classroom.

These four new additions to our large selection of cap and gown colors is something Budget Graduation is extremely excited about. No matter what level of school you’re graduating from or what color you’re donning just always remember to be yourself and always try and be better and do better.

When added to existing colors these new colors allow Budget Graduation to better service existing and new customers with an ever increasing product offering.
