HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY TOPPER TO ARRIVE?

Processing times for printed Grad Cap Toppers are 3-10 days.

WITHOUT PROOF: 3-5 Business Days

WITH PROOF: 3-10 Business Days 

Shipping times will depend on which shipping method you choose — we highly recommend choosing priority shipping.

WHAT IS THE TOPPER MADE OUT OF?

The Grad Cap Topper is printed on a durable, thick cardstock with a fine matte finish. It leaves a luxurious finish on the printed design, with an almost velvet like texture to mimic fabric. You will place this topper on your own cap. The topper has a very delicate coating, so we ask you to please handle with care to avoid any scratches or fingerprints. 

WHAT IF I DO NOT CHOOSE A PROOF?

If you do not choose a proof, then Allison hand-letters the words on your design and we print and ship the topper as is -- you do not get to see it before it is shipped. Allison uses her artist discrection to hand-letter the words as best as possible. We are not held responsible for anything that you wanted on your topper that was not specifially stated in the preferenace box.  

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY PROOF?

Digital proofs will be emailed to you in 3-10 Business Days. 

CAN I FULLY CUSTOMIZE A DESIGN?

We have discontinued our fully custom hand-painted toppers. This printed option now allows for quicker and more detailed options! Choose from a floral design below to customize your words, background color, and add additional elements such as a stethoscope, cross, or heart.

WHAT WORDS DO I NEED TO ADD FOR THE WORD COUNT?

When adding up your words for the word count, only count up the words used for the main quote. There is no need to include the following: numbers, monograms, school abbreviations (ex. LSU), or degree abbreviations (ex. BSN). Those are freebies.

CAN I CHOOSE A FONT?

All designs are hand-lettered – meaning there is no “font” used in the making of the design. Allison has a distinct style of lettering that will be used. In you order notes, you can give preference if you like more bubbly, flowy, or strict cursive style. Whatever Allison hand-letters is what you will get though.

Allison will use her artist discerection on how wording is placed and how to capitalize words. If you want a specific way of lettering, please place those instructions in the box when you order. 

CAN I ADD SOMETHING ELSE TO THE DESIGN?

Looking to add a stethoscope, cross, labor and delivery feet, or something of the sort? We can do that! This will need a separate quote, so just send us a message with what you are looking for and we can quote you!

DO I NEED TO SEND MY GRAD CAP IN?

No — this is a Topper that you attach to your cap. The unique aspect of our Grad Cap Toppers is the fact that you do not have to send us your cap. In fact, the detail Allison puts into designs does not turn out as well on the actual fabric of a grad cap. The Topper features a durable, thick card stock material that you attach to your cap. The actual graduation cap is not included. Standard size of the template is 9.5 x 9.5 inches. No need to worry about sending in your cap to us! We got ya!

IS THERE A HOLE CUT IN THE CENTER?

Long story short -- NO, there is not a hole cut in the center. We have been producing Grad Cap Toppers for nearly 7 years and we have never cut a hole in the center. We do not cut a hole because we think it looks much cleaner and nicer without the gaping hole around your cap button. Since there is not a universal button size for toppers, we cannot cut one in fear of it being to small or to large.

We have honed a great way to attach your Topper to your cap. Specific instructions on how to attach Topper to your cap are below.

HOW DOES THE TOPPER ATTACH TO MY CAP?

1.Take off the tassel holder button on the top (the button often twists off or can be pulled off with force).
2. Line up the edges of the topper with the cap and press down over the metal spike that sticks up the middle.
3. Once the topper is securely placed down on the spike, place the tassel button back on top.
4. Secure the edges around the cap with the provided glue dots OR your desired method of adhesion. If your tassel button fails to come off, we suggest taking a sharp blade and cut the fabric loose underneath the button. In the last resort, cut a small circle in the middle of the cap to place over the button.

CANCELLATIONS OR REFUNDS:

We can only accept cancellations of orders within 24 hours of purchase to receive a full refund. There are processing steps for each order, thus, after 24 hours, we will only be able to give a partial refund. Once sketches are made, there will be a small refund available, but the time spent creating the sketch will need a charge. Once the grad cap is printed, there is absolutely no refund available!

** Just to reiterate, this is a printed TOPPER that you place over your own grad cap. We only supply the printed Topper that you must attach to YOUR OWN cap.
