5 Promotional Products Your School Needs for the Approaching School Year

Promotional Ideas for Schools―Products You Need

Every school has things that make them unique: school colors, a mascot, and maybe even a few fun sayings. Who doesn’t love to show a little school spirit? If you are looking for a way to bring teachers, students, and faculty together in a fun way this school year and for years to come, branded school swag and promotional items may be just the way to do it.

You can put your school logo on items for the classroom or on things that will be used outside of school. The possibilities are endless. 

Here are five promotional products that your school needs this school year.


High-quality promotional pens can advertise your brand in a subtle yet useful way. Teachers, faculty, and students in your school will all have to use pens at some point; they are an essential part of any student’s collection of school supplies. Why not give them a fun promotional pen that helps them show school pride? They may even use their pens outside of school, which helps you get the word out; this is a great school marketing strategy and way for you to gain exposure through word of mouth.


Whether your high school’s athletes need bags for sports equipment and gear or your elementary school’s students need a tote bag to carry their library books, branded bags are a great promotional item for your school. We collaborate with specialized vendors to deliver high-quality design for your custom logo and unique school brand.


Calendars are essential in schools. They are used in elementary schools to keep track of the day of the week, seasonal school events, how many days are left in the school year, and more. Teachers use them to keep track of their daily agenda. In junior high and high schools, they are used to keep track of homework assignments and other important deadlines. 

You can make something as simple as a calendar more fun by ordering branded calendars that match your school’s colors and branding. Keep track of the school days and show school spirit with this great promotional tool!

Water Bottles

Water bottles are a great way to effectively advertise and promote your school. Athletes, students, and teachers all use water bottles to stay hydrated throughout the day. Plus, anyone at your school will want to use a high-quality water bottle all the time, not just inside the classroom.


Last but certainly not least, custom apparel is a great promotional item for your school. Your students and staff will absolutely love their school gear. With so many items to choose from—ranging from short sleeve shirts to long sleeve shirts to hoodies—faculty, students, and parents of students at your school will love the idea of showing school spirit through custom apparel.
