As of 2015, the price range of paraments starts at around $20 for basic embroidered napkins to several thousand dollars for complete church sets. The website also offers local customer care representatives to help with orders. Shipping on most merchandise takes three to four weeks.
Gaspard offers custom-made paraments on its website. The selection of paraments is divided into seasons of the church. All items are fully customizable and available in any fabric or shade offered for that collection. Because most items are customizable, prices shown are starting prices and vary. Paraments can be sorted by price, collection or position. Orders may be placed through creating an account online or by telephone and take about eight weeks to ship.
Clergy Mart offers a smaller selection of paraments at lower prices. Its paraments are limited to ready-made, three-piece, reversible sets. Each set has the same, traditional embroidered pattern.
