Graduation Gown Hire Service
We were the first Robe makers to:
- introduce a free phone student helpline
- bring our freshly ironed gowns hanging on rails to site
- lower hire prices charged to students
- provide robe photos to students on our website when booking
- give the option to students of web or postal booking
- produce elasticated hats for easy fit
- offer hoods with press-studs for easy attachment to gowns
On an ongoing basis:
- Our price rates are excellent and variable.
- All our stock is relatively new.
- Our experienced staff are:
- Affable and helpful - we can run with whatever booking deadline you want.
- Fully briefed on what academic dress is required
- Will follow your instructions (e.g. robing closing 30 minutes before the ceremony)
- Believe "the Customer is King"
- Our optional website or postal booking for students is user friendly and free of jargon.
Our website shows students a photo to view.
- Our system for issuing robes to students is very fast.
- We provide assistance in fitting robes for students, staff and VIPs.

- Our system of issuing robes from hanging rails is very space efficient with 100 pre-ordered
sets per 8 sq. feet. It is very neat to look at.
- We allow early collection of robes by students and staff
- We do not charge for extended time on hire and provide a freepost service for "late returns"
within the British Isles.
