Custom Graduation Stoles vs Stock Stoles

The big question for many graduates is: Should I order a custom stole for graduation, or should I stick with the basic stole in my graduation bundle?

Whenever we attend graduation fairs, I have found many students were pondering this question.

Some of the questions asked at the Sash Company booth were, “Is it worth the extra cost?” “Do I really need it?”

What was cool about all this was in the end, at least 80% of the students that came to our vendor booth ordered a custom graduation stole with us. Some stayed at our both for hours, some made several rounds but in the end, returned to order a hand-crafted graduation sash with us. All in all, students were thrilled to make their custom choices and design their once-in-a-lifetime memory.

I shared with some students my personal story about how I hesitated at first to purchase a custom graduation stole. I feel ordering a custom graduation stole is truly a memorable token of celebrating one’s life achievements. That, if I had to do it all again, I would absolutely order one.

So truly, what are the pros and cons of ordering a graduation custom stole? Let’s dive in, shall we:
