WHAT DOES THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?

1. Submit your order by including all of the needed information:

  • Desired Quote/Words
  • Color of Lettering
  • Description of Design (colors, flowers, layout, etc.) 
  • Date that you NEED your cap topper (grad date, photo shoot date, etc.)
    • For example: If you need it by May 3rd, we suggest to provide a "needed date" of April 29th -- this allows a few days of room just in case of any shipment carrier delays.

2. Allison (Owner & Artist) will create a digital sketch of your design.

3. About 2 weeks before your needed date, Viviana (Communications Manager) will send you the digital sketch of your design to approve.

4. Viviana will be in contact with you regarding any revisions you want made to your design. You will have 3 revisions total to approve! If you do not approve within 3 days of the design being sent to you, we will over-ride the approval and move on with the design.

5. Once you approve, Allison will begin the painting process.

6. After Allison finishes painting your grad cap, we will send you a look of the finished product before it is shipped out!

7. You will receive a shipping notification email with a tracking number.

HOW MUCH IS A CAP TOPPER?

Pricing ranges according to options you choose for your design. Please scroll down to the cap listing and enter in the information you want for your design, and it will calculate a price for you! 

WHAT IS A "TOPPER"?

The Grad Cap Topper is a unique, durable, thick card-stock like material that is cut to size to fit on to a standard 9.5 x 9.5" grad cap. You will attach the Topper to your personal grad cap. 

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY TOPPER TO ARRIVE?

Graduation Cap Toppers are a very unique product because they are primarily needed for specific dates (such as senior pictures or graduation day). Due to the high volume of orders we receive and that some orders need their Cap before others, we have created a system where Grad Cap Topper orders are arranged by “Needed Date.” So technically, the answer to “How long will it take to arrive” depends on the “Needed Date” you provide at checkout! There is a minimum of 5 weeks (35 days) that we require processing time — for example, you cannot put a needed date of one week from the day you order. We do have rush orders available though (please read below if you need your cap before 4 weeks).

I AM ORDERING INTERNATIONALLY, HOW WILL THIS AFFECT ARRIVAL TIME?

 If you are ordering outside of the United States, we request that you send us a separate email regarding that you are located internationally so we can calculate when your cap needs to ship out (possibly move the date up sooner). We HIGHLY suggest you choose International Priority Shipping — International Economy can take up to 21 business days and often have delays due to border control. If you are out of the States, we suggest also putting a SOONER needed date (at least a couple weeks before you need one), that way, it still adds room for delays of the cap shipping out.

I NEED THE TOPPER IN LESS THAN 5 WEEKS, CAN I STILL ORDER?

Rush orders are available — with an additional cost. If you need the Topper in less than 5 weeks (35 days), please send us an email regarding the situation and how soon you need it. We will discuss rush order fees.

WHAT SHOULD I PUT FOR MY “NEEDED DATE”?

As explained above, we arrange orders by the date that customers need the Topper by. Do you have a photo shoot you want the Topper for? Just need it by your graduation day? Whatever the case may be, we require you to provide a “Needed Date” that we can be sure to send your cap out in time. In fact, it is guaranteed that we will ship your Topper out to you in time to arrive for the “Needed Date;” however, we are NOT responsible for delivery delays due to shipping carrier issues.

All Grad Cap Toppers are shipped out to arrive in time of the needed date — but there are rare instances where shipping carrier delays may prevent the cap from arriving on time. How can you prevent this from happening? We suggest adding a few extra days to your “Needed Date.” For example: if you need your Topper by May 3rd, we suggest to provide a “needed date” of April 28th — this allows a few days of room just in case of any shipment carrier delays.

DISCLAIMER: We are not responsible for delivery delays due to shipping carriers. If the Topper is shipped out in time for delivery, there is nothing we can do if the shipping carrier has delays.

CAN I FULLY CUSTOMIZE THE DESIGN?

Yes! Graduation Cap Toppers are 100% customizable. Each Topper is uniquely hand-painted and made to order. The most popular Topper designs feature a hand-lettered quote along with a hand-painted floral design — other art elements are available as well (such as stethoscopes, flags, etc.). You can even choose from previous Topper pictures on our website, Pinterest, and Instagram! Whatever idea you have for your Topper, we would love to hear it! Just send us an email to hello [!at] lovealldesign.co and we can chat.

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN "SMALL" AND "LARGE" ART ELEMENTS?

All Grad Cap Topper designs automatically come with a floral design in the base price. For extra design to the florals, you must select either a "small" or "large" art element. Small art elements include the following types of items: stethoscope, compass, cross, medical tools, EKG lines, teaching supplies, symbols, etc. Large art elements include the following types of items: banners, flags, buildings, globes, maps, landscapes, mascots, logos, etc. Not quite for sure what category your extra design fits under? No worries! Send us an email at and we will be happy to chat about it. 

CAN I SEE A SKETCH BEFORE PAYING?

Due to the excessive amount of orders and the number of steps involved in creating a digital sketch, we require a payment in full before Allison begins the sketching process. You receive 2 full chances for revising the sketch to achieve a design you are happy with. If after those revisions you are unhappy with the design, we will reserve a design fee of $15 and refund the rest of your order.

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 not 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-painted and 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.

DO ALL TOPPERS HAVE A BLACK BACKGROUND?

Every cap topper is black by default - since the material is black. If you want to add a solid colored background, such as royal blue or red, then choose “yes” in the drop down box for colored design and specify the color you want in the customization notes. White is available as a background color, however it will be a slightly thinner material as the black.

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 for Allison to paint on. 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!

HOW DOES THE TOPPER ATTACH TO MY CAP?

Due to varying button sizes on grad caps, we do not cut a circle in the middle of Toppers to ensure the hole is not too big or too small. Without a universal button size, we cannot guarantee that the hole will fit over your button or not leave a huge gap around it (which we think looks unprofessional).

Here is how we suggest attaching the Topper to your 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 double sided tape or glue (we recommend hot glue). 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.
