Message from Jostens (your graduation product, caps and gowns and class ring provider):

Attention families of the class of 2014…….

If you’ve already placed your graduation order for your senior you can stop reading after this paragraph.  Delivery will be made in either March or April and you will be notified of the exact date and time prior to our visit.  Thank you for placing your order!

If you have not placed your graduation order we want you to know it’s not too late and now’s the perfect time to do so.  Go to our website (www.grad-auto.com), click on graduation orders and place your order.

Please note:   If you are borrowing / using a cap and gown from a previous student you will still need to order the class medallion and a tassel for the graduation ceremony.

Finally, if we can be of any further help please feel free to call us at 253.210.0575.

Thank you for allowing us to play a small role in your student’s achievement.  Congratulations!
