The first day of school for a child brings joy and memories most families will never forget. As time goes on and school days pass the relationship between families and the school grows through community events, fundraisers and sports. There are many opportunities for families to share their school pride. Often parents and even grandparents and siblings will wear or display school logos on their vehicle, clothing and personal items such as bags, water bottles etc. Promotional products for schools are a great way to boost school spirit, but they can also make great fundraisers and even work to help with event promotion.
The primary use for promotional products in a school is spirit gear or swag. Every school district should have an online storefront where local fans can shop and buy online to gear up with items like cups, sweatshirts, umbrellas, sweatshirt blankets and much more. These items are then seen around the community and at events and promote goodwill in the community. If the school can offer options to personalize these items with a family name in addition to their logo it’s a great way to increase interest.
In addition, apparel makes a great fundraiser. Our fundraiser programs allow schools to pick out their items and control their pricing so they determine how much money their fundraiser can make. It’s a great way to support the school and it puts a lot of logo gear out into the community which helps boost school pride.
Schools can also use some promotional products as incentives. A couple ideas to incorporate into existing processes such as give them as rewards for good behavior for students. Or, they can be given to families with a purchase of football game or other sporting event tickets or at an event to incentivize participation like a school concert or a 5k race.
Promotional products and schools work together very well. They provide great marketing solutions for parents clubs, teachers, district wide fundraisers and much more. Who doesn’t want to wear their kids or their alumni logo on their gear? Gear up and get noticed.
