DELIVERY TIME: Meeting your important deadline is everything. We are experts at handling rush orders! For the best service at the lowest cost, please provide an accurate and specific "need-by" date. Usually this would be one day prior to wearing, to allow for variations in delivery time. Please note that once your order is in process with your chosen target date, the date cannot be changed. Items needed within 3 weeks are priced more per item. Most orders ship directly from our plant as this saves delivery time, and for this reason invoices are mailed separately after your order arrives. Collegiate rental note: Although we make every effort to provide correct hoods for late orders, we cannot guarantee correct hood colors if your rental is ordered less than 2 weeks in advance.
Foreign orders: Please see Order FAQ for delivery details to foreign addresses
IMPORTANT NOTE ON RENTAL RETURNS:
All rental returns go back to the plant, not our West Coast offices, and are expected to be completed within 2 weeks of the wearing. Shipping information and/or return label is included in your rental package.
PROMPT RETURN OF YOUR RENTAL ITEMS IN GOOD CONDITION WILL INSURE THAT YOU ARE NOT LIABLE FOR REPLACEMENT COSTS. Missing or damaged items will be invoiced at the current replacement value ($110 per plain gown, more for academic regalia, as of 2/2013). Rentals not returned within 30 days of wearing require us to track down the unreturned items. Administrative time for this necessitates a $50 MINIMUM RENTAL RETRIEVAL FEE on any rental that is eventually returned late as a result of our notification efforts to find them PLUS rental fees for each month past the weardate the items were unreturned. Your choice to rent from The Robe Shop is an agreement to these terms.
PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RENTAL RETURN ARE MADE AWARE! We find that in larger groups, or with hectic events, sometimes the robes end up in the hands of someone who is not even aware that the robes need to be returned, when, or how. This leads to problems- plan now to make sure the return labels, return boxes and need for prompt return are identified to all people involved.

Thank you for your order! We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you. Thank you also for your cooperation with our order guidelines, which saves us hours of time and allows us to focus on fulfilling your order promptly! Our business success has for over 20 years depended on our ability to meet your deadline. We do it well- please work with us by following these guidelines:
ALL orders must be prepaid, including shipping charges. Orders are not processed until we have BOTH your order AND your payment.
Put it in writing! Verbal order information can be misunderstood. The best way is to submit your order on this (or the appropriate) form. We will contact you to verify. Don't like the web-based form? We can FAX or mail a condensed 1-page form. Just ask!
FAXed orders must have a bankcard number for payment written on this form. Your card information is very secure. We will honor requests for us to call you for your card number, but it will delay your order.
EMAILED FORMS: To email your order, simply copy this order form text (START & END of order text are marked) and paste into a new email message, then proceed to type in your information. FOR PROMPT RESULTS, USE THIS IN YOUR SUBJECT LINE: ***ORDER***ORDER***ORDER*** Please include at least half of your bankcard information, then follow up with a second email for the remaining half (Subject= "[your name] order part 2"), or just send all of it at once, depending on your comfort level. We always call to confirm your order, so if you don't get a response within 1 business day, please contact us to make sure your email was received.
If you want to pay by check or money order, do not email or FAX this form. It will NOT speed up your order as we do not process it until payment is received. A double-shipment or lost order could result. Both the form and your payment must be submitted together. Use a courier service (FedEx, UPS) air letter for RUSH orders.
PHONE ORDER: We can help you best if you have printed out this form and filled in the information, or at least have read it so you know what information we will need. Being prepared before calling will aid enormously with your phone order and save staff time!
SPECIAL TERMS IN GRADUATION SEASON: Any order placed from April 1-June 30 that is needed within 8 weeks is automatically charged a Seasonal Surcharge of 20% of the order total, minimum $20. Shipping charges necessary to fulfill your order on time are NOT included in the surcharge.
GROUP ORDERS: If time permits, we are happy to provide you with individual NCR forms/payment receipt for each student to fill out with sizes. These can be collected, 1 copy kept by the school and 1 copy included with your group order form. Please request the "cap & gown student NCR forms" and tell us how many you will need. A faster method is to use our ALPHAPACK spreadsheet file. You can collect the personal stats any way you wish and enter it into the spreadsheet. We have the appropriate columns for needed info for each person, with sample entries to make your task quick. We are happy to email this to you. With either method when your order arrives, each package is bagged separately and identified by student.
We will let you know if there are any problems fulfilling your order as requested. Each order is verified. You will not be charged for items that are not supplied.
Please allow time for your order to be processed before calling about the current status. We understand perfectly your concern that your order is on the way, and are happy to verify that for you.
For a detailed customer service policy and more information about our company, please see our About Grad Goods & More page, policy section.
