COVID-19 Grad Cap - PERFECTION!

This cap totally made my husband's "COVID-19" doctoral graduation the BEST! It was a last-minute order, because I was trying hard to come up with an appropriately WOW-type celebration amidst the social distancing. I spent extra on one-day shipping - then emailed with Kelly at Cap&GownDirect - and she got it to us at the perfect moment! Huzzah!
THIS IS A GREAT CAP and a super company to work with - thanks!
(And my husband wore it to work the next day - so fun - thanks again!)

Good Quality, Great Price, the Best Customer Service

Not only was I satisfied with the robe I received, but CapandGown Direct bent over backwards to help me get it just right. And not just the robe. They went above and beyond to get me the perfect hood as well. The robe and hood is a wonderful quality (though the robe felt baggy). But the prices are unbeatable, and the service is top notch. This is the triple-threat! I wouldn't go anywhere else!

Amazing! BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE I’VE EXPERIENCED IN A LONG TIME!

What a beautiful robe!!! The cap and gown is even more beautiful in person. The quality was impressive and even more so was their customer service. My son graduated from medical school and somehow his order was lost from his school. I contacted this company sent them a photo of what it should look like and with the limited time we had. They shipped it almost immediately. They worked with us in our timeframe for which I am extremely grateful! I also saved some money which after a kid in medical school that was an added bonus. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company.

Thank you so much Stacy, for your vote of confidence. It's my pleasure to help you get the regalia for your son, and I'm happy to see it looks great on him!

Best regards,
April

Great Purchase

I received my moneys worth. Everything fits great, looks great, and all my friends admired my appearance. What I enjoyed best was shopping for my 2021 Cap & Gown, getting a "great price," receiving it faster than any other company promising, the least price to ship & handle plus receiving a discount because I used a promo code that your office offers everyone who requests it. Thank you.

Never got it

Never Got it

Dear Robbin, As we discussed with you over the phone, your order included a custom stole, which would need 2-3 weeks to ship. I appreciate your understanding at this trying time, and glad to have helped you get the custom stole exactly as you wanted. If you would be kind enough to update the review, we will sincerely appreciate it!

Cap and Gown Direct—The BEST!!

We had used a different company for several years for our graduation caps. This year, the company we used prior could not ship. Their state was shut down due to Covid-19. Well, I could not have been happier to search online and find Caps and Gowns Direct. Not only were the caps almost $2/cheaper apiece but because of the volume ordered, we were given a discount and free shipping. The quality is fabulous. And the tassel and 2020 charm are adorable!!! So at least one GREAT thing came from the pandemic. We found your company.

Don't Spend Unnecessary Money

When I called April to express my need for a Master's gown with accessories, she assured me that my order would be placed the same day and promised I would receive it in time for my event. As I proceeded with my order, she reminded me I already ordered some of the same items and believed I was duplicating my order. As I took mental inventory, she was absolutely correct, I had already ordered some accessories. To my surprise my order was at my doorstep two days later. As a result of her exceptional customer service and the quality of their product, we will have all of our students order from this company, they just earned a lifetime customer. Thank you April, I praise God for your honesty and willingness to assist me.

Impressed!

The official Ph.D. regalia of University of Hawai'i (and most universities) runs around $1000 so I settled with a plan black PhD gown and the Hawai'i hood (which was more affordable), but I have always wanted something more regal. When my old gown got discolored, I searched around and found Cap and Gown Direct. The cost was so incredibly affordable and the gown looked pretty amazing online, so I decided to take a chance on it. I was incredibly impressed when it arrived by the quality of the gown, the sewing, the fit, the materials, and the details. The green is not a perfect match to the UH green in the hood, but it is close enough. I've got three doctoral students graduating in August and I'm really looking forward to escorting them in this beautiful regalia. And, it arrived really quickly.

Good quality, runs a little short

I ordered the 3’6” to 3’8” gown for my 5yo who is 3’7”, and it barely covered his knees. I would order a size up if you want the gown to hit mid-calf like adult gowns do. Other than that I was pleased with the items I ordered — maroon cap, gown and gold stole and tassel were good quality and the colors were accurate.

Very satisfied!!

Due to the pandemic we chose to home school our little one instead of sending her to preschool. Then everyone around her were having graduations, so I thought who said you can’t graduate from home school? So I rushed to the internet to find a last minute cap and gown that would get here in time. I chose the two day method and the gown got here just in time. I took her to the lake and we had her graduation!! (I even made her a preschool certificate and laminated it)

Highly recommended! Good quality, cheap express shipping!

I’m so happy I ordered these two gowns for me and my boyfriend! We were supposed to have a virtual graduation so I wasn’t planning to buy gowns. 4 days before the graduation I woke up at 6 am and realized that I do want to have this moment at least for the photos. Our college stopped selling gowns 1 month before the graduation so I had no way to order from them. But the solution was even better.
This website offers 2 day express shipping at 10$ (very cheap and fast I think).
To my biggest surprise the quality was very very very nice. Good seams, decent fabric.
Much, much better than expected for the money.
I do recommend this! Save money and look good:)

Satisfied w/ my 2020 Charm!

Great material and was a perfect fit! Super glad I got it earlier than expected and RIGHT ON MY GRADUATION DAY!
I’m a 2020 graduate that participated in a 2020-21 ceremony and super glad that I was able to gave my own 2020 charm because the school provided a 2021 charm which had me uneasy.
Super happy with my purchase and will cherish it forever!

Great Product and Service

We have been ordering from Cap and Gown Direct for about 8 years and they have never disappointed. Even though we are all the way across the country we have always received our orders on time even on short notice. Due to circumstance beyond the company, they were out of the 2021 charms. I had to order with the 2020 and get the 2021 somewhere else. A company rep called to make sure that I had not made a mistake. The employees are always very informative and helpful when I have had a question or concern. To top it off, their prices can not be beat!

Well made!

The quality of this hood is pretty good! I’m not sure if the light blue is supposed to be a little brighter but I’m very happy with it! Especially because I’m doing a virtual zoom graduation, I really don’t mind. It has all the strings a hood usually comes with. Very happy with the price and quality!
