Free Apparel Always Gets Noticed

Clothing and apparel are among the best promo products your school can hand out. Apparel generated the most impressions because when students or faculty members wear an item, everyone walking by sees it. This is the silent endorsement that amps up the school spirit and support!

T-shirts make excellent promotional items because when a person wears it, others believe that your brand is being endorsed. When students wear a branded t-shirt both on premises and off campus, they are promoting school spirit and camaraderie with their fellow classmates.

Beanie hats are a more subtle way to promote your school, and yet they are often more appreciated than a common t-shirt. This is a promo product to increase favorability and keep students warm at fall football games.

Even when students cover their school shirt with a jacket, a branded bag will still show off your brand. This is why promo bags are highly effective and make the most impressions. Your students will be grateful for this item when they have to bring home extra books for an exam or have to stow away a jacket when it gets too warm at a spring soccer game. (BONUS: they’re eco-friendly!)


Useful [Free] Stuff Is Always A Crowd Favorite

People wear free apparel because it’s just that—free. For your school, it’ll get the message across, but most users don’t get too attached to the product. Useful and novel items, on the other hand, often do. When you give people something that is free and interesting, they are more likely to use it, brag about it, and attach a positive impression to the school for providing the item. Your useful promo items should address the challenges students of today face: 

  1. The constant need for supplies and class preparation 
  2. The integration of technology into education 
  3. The absolute need to stay organized while juggling class, extra curricular activates, and other events.
