The start of a new school year is just around the corner! And while the freedom of summer will be missed dearly, this new year is cause for celebration. It is a time for reuniting with old friends and meeting new ones, maybe learning a thing or two, and of course, lots of school spirit! Start the school year off right with promotional items that will catch the eye of students, parents, and faculty alike. So, at your next sporting and homecoming events, your entire community will have every opportunity to show their school pride in style!
Your promotional items will do little good if no one actually wants to buy them. So be mindful of your audience. Consider who is most likely to purchase your items- what are their interests, hobbies, and needs? If you address these, you’re branded gear is sure to be a hit! Here are a few ideas to inspire your creativity.
2. Temporary Tattoos
Once again, this may be reminiscent of your childhood. However, when branded with your school’s colors and a picture of your mascot, these can serve as the perfect spirit accessory. Plus, this is a cheap option that will surely turn a profit.
3. Everyday School Supplies
These should be relevant to the everyday needs of the students at your school and always made available for purchase on campus. If someone is in a bind and they require an emergency purchase of supplies, they’ll have a place to go! And while they’re at it, they’ll be sharing their school spirit. Include items such as pens, pencils, composition and spiral notebooks, binders, and planners.
Any school-aged individual will be grateful to receive a pop socket, a portable charger, or a cell phone wallet. These will be especially useful for both their academic and personal needs. And since technology is such a prominent part of daily life, the school’s branding will get limitless exposure.
5. Branded T-shirts
These are a classic promotional item that can serve well for any and every type of event. However, it is crucial that these aren’t just any t-shirts. Be sure that they are designed well and catered with the students’ style in mind. Make sure that it is something they will actually want to wear. Consider inviting a group of interested students to help you compose the design. Their help will ensure that it is reflective of the school’s genuine spirit and culture. And at all costs, avoid easy mistakes with sizing, placement, composition, and coloring.
Build your excitement for the start of the new year, and get the entire student body on board! As a united school, you’ll create a kind and welcoming culture wherein everyone feels included, (not to mention you’ll also be unstoppable at sporting events). So, as the first day of school quickly approaches, make sure you’re prepared with the best promotional gear, that people will actually want to buy!
