Before you throw those hats in the air, make sure you’ve added your own special touch. 

Lost in a sea of matching gowns, there’s only one way to individualize your graduation day apparel: decorating your cap. For many students, it’s the opportunity to showcase their personal style, favorite quotes, or even a punny joke. For others, it’s a chance to share their plans and hopes for their entrance into the real world.

Whether you’re the class clown, a pop culture buff, or the future president, there’s a perfect cap for you. And if you didn’t major in all things DIY, calligraphers and other artists have countless graduation cap designs for you to choose from. With a range of prices, you’ll be able to find the best graduation cap ideas within your budget.

Real Simple rounded up a few of the best finds from Etsy and Zazzle to help inspire your graduation day look. So prepare to move that tassel from right to left and throw up the most creative cap in the crowd with one of these options.
