Sigma Delta Pi: Orders, Fax Machine Decommissioned

IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!

PLEASE DESTROY ANY/ALL SIGMA DELTA PI ORDER FORMS YOU HAVE ON HAND: BOTH ELECTRONIC AND PAPER VERSIONS.

 As you will recall from the multiple notifications sent to you since last summer, Sigma Delta Pi no longer accepts orders for pins and certificates via e-mail or fax.  ALL orders MUST be placed using our online platform at https://sigmadeltapi.org/chapter-resources/order-forms-for-initiation-materials/

 From the main webpage of www.sigmadeltapi.org, this online ordering platform is also found by clicking the “For Advisers” menu at the top of the webpage, clicking “Resource Page,” and then under the “Resources for Ceremonies” subheading, click:

ORDER FORMS FOR INITIATION CEREMONY MATERIALS (INCLUDES “REPOSTERO” AND MEDALLION)

With this platform, Sigma Delta Pi “retired” its long-standing fax machine and NO LONGER has a working fax or fax number.  Therefore please ensure that all future orders for pins and materials are always submitted using the aforementioned links.  Using old MS Word order forms will only delay the processing of your future orders as e-mailed orders cannot be processed since summer 2017.  And any attempts to submit orders via Sigma Delta Pi’s decommissioned fax number will be unsuccessful.

 Finally, please remember that only select Sigma Delta Pi merchandise is sold through the national office (e.g., medallions and the “repostero”).  All other official and approved Sigma Delta Pi merchandise items are sold through our exclusive authorized retailer: Kalamazoo Regalia.  All purchases of honor cords, stoles, chapter starter kits, altar runners, certificate frames, registry, hat, silk tie, shirts and sweatshirts should be made directly at http://honorgrads.com/categories.php?category=Sigma-Delta-Pi.

Thanks for your attention to these important details as we strive to avoid all delays with your ordering of Sigma Delta Pi membership materials and paraphernalia. If you have any related questions, please do not hesitate to e-mail us at delmastromp@cofc.edu or sdpnational@gmail.com.
