All our sashes are made using the finest-quality fabrics and manufactured in a manner which is consistent with the U.S. Department of Labor's Fair Labor Standards Act.

We manufacture all of our sashes in California, USA.

How about sash sizes, and where to select it?

Standard graduation sashes are 42” long, from the neck to the tip (about 35" hanging from the shoulder down)
Pageant and award sashes have multiple sizes available:

  • Extra Small ~3" wide x 20" long
  • Small ~4" wide x 25" long
  • Medium ~5" wide x 30" long
  • Standard ~5" wide x 35" long
  • Large ~5" wide x 45" long (+ $5)

The sizes are approximations in inches from the tip of the sash to the fold. Once designed, you can select the sash size, or change it in the shopping cart. Should you have a specific request, or just for safety, please write your Height, or other details in order notes.

Do you ship internationally?

We do ship internationally by FedEx. FedEx does charge "Brokerage Fees" for moving your package through customs. We have no control over these fees, cannot estimate them, and are not responsible for them. These fees are the responsibility of the customer and are not collected at checkout.

Remember, when you order all prices are quoted and must be paid in U.S. Funds. Allow ample time for your shipment to clear customs.

Do you accept checks?

We accept business checks for groups or corporate orders. No personal checks under $120! Simply send a check payable to Pride Sash along with your online order or completed order form to:

How soon will I get my order?

The estimate turnaround for orders to be manufactured and delivered varies depending on the type of order and season.

Keep in mind that sashes does not ship right away. They are Made to Order with custom embroidery. Therefore, please allocate the necessary time for manufacturing.

How many letters can I fit and how big will they be?

The amount of letters for your school name or personalized text included with standard embroidery is 20 letters maximum per line.

Award, pageant & homecoming sashes are limited to 30-45 letters. The larger the amount, the smaller the letters will become. Please be aware that the size of letters will be determined by this factor.

When do I have to pay a setup fee?

Logos or symbols not already in our embroidery library will require a digitizing setup fee.

The digitizing process requires transforming an image to stitches using a digitizing software, breaking it out into sections, colors and layers, to create all shapes in a format an embroidery machine can read.

It is a one-time fee only, and only applicable for new custom logos and/or new orders. (country flags do not apply). Should we already have your logo or graphics digitized in our system and embroidery ready, the fee will be waived.

Do the sashes come in a box?

Large or bulk order graduation sashes are ironed and folded into individual transparent plactic bags with a cardboard tag which can be hanged on display rack. Single or small quantity sashes are rolled in a squared sized small shipping box.

How do I track my order?

You can track the status of orders by logging in to your account. This will allow you to browse your order history and track the status of all your orders. Once shipped, you will receive a shipping email to track your order's estimated arrival.

What is your return policy?
