When will I receive my order?
We stock some standard items such as black polyester bachelor and master gowns, soft cap mortar boards, craft aprons and collars, standard breast jewels, cuff links, jiggers and lapel pins. Stock can sell out but we try our best to avoid this.
We aim to fulfil all orders within a reasonable time frame, however lead times can be situational, seasonal and will vary depending on our production schedule.
If you would like your regalia for a particular ceremony date, contact us to ask about availability.
Please be aware that most regalia is bespoke and tailor made. We have a made-to-order, small-batch production cycle.
Please do not assume that by selecting express post that your order will be dispatched within a few days. We are not a pick-and-pack warehouse.
Please do not assume that we know you want your regalia in time for a ceremony, that we know the date of your ceremony, or that you will receive your regalia in time for your ceremony (refer points below). We recommend having a contingency plan; hire or borrow regalia from a friend, a colleague or your institution.
We cannot control shipping time once a parcel leaves our premises (see shipping tab).
Some things that are out of our control may delay production. We take all steps necessary to avoid delays but materials and deliveries delay, staff shortages, machine malfunctions, and natural disasters are out of our control.
Putting pressure on our staff will not make your order be processed more quickly. We do not tolerate unreasonable, impatient or aggressive behaviour.
We thank you for your patience and understanding as our production team work hard to try to meet everyone's requirements.
