Fun and Useful Promotional Items to Raise Your School’s Profile

Nov 26, 2019 by

Most of us spend a significant part of our lives in school. By some estimates, we Americans spend up to 29% of our lives enrolled in school or some other educational institution. Given how schools help shape our identity and how much time we spend in them, who wouldn’t want to be proud of the place they’re studying in or graduated from?

Promotional items can go a long way to helping create and spread pride in your school. If students, alumni, and employees alike can feel positive about their school, this can pay off both in the long and short term by helping foster an environment that’s great to learn and work in.

There are plenty of opportunities to use promotional items for creating pride in your school while raising its profile to the public at large. Events that commemorate important times in your local and national history as well as those important to your school are perfect occasions to use these items. Some of these can even be used all year round, contributing to your school’s branding.

Here are some things you might want to consider getting to help promote your school.


Custom lanyards with your school’s name and branding can potentially be your alma mater’s most powerful promotional tool. They can be given out with school ID’s so that students and faculty can be immediately identified as being part of the institution. Special lanyards could also be made for sporting events, field trips, and on-campus school activities. Variants can also be made to identify students belonging to different years, colleges, organizations, and so on.

Silicone bracelets

Silicone rubber bracelets are an excellent way to show off school pride during inter-school games on and off campus. They’re extremely affordable and durable, which makes them an excellent choice for long-term school promotions of any kind, as they will look new even after months or years of daily use. 

Badge holders

If your school requires students, staff, and visitors to wear IDs on campus, badge holders can be a good way to encourage compliance with ID policies while strengthening the school’s brand at the same time. Of course, they’re also a great way to help keep the IDs safe from wear and tear as well.

Lapel Pins

Custom made lapel pins are an eye-catching yet subtle and tasteful way of showing off pride in one’s membership in the school community. Custom lapel pins often given to students, faculty and staff, alumni, and VIPs as a recognition of their contributions to the school. Special lapel pins could also be made to commemorate special occasions, achievements, and more.

Pens and notebooks

What better way to reinforce your school’s brand image than to have it on notebooks and pens that students and staff will be using every day? Not only are custom pens and notebooks generally affordable, but they can also last through the entire school year and beyond, continuously sharing your brand to the community.


Bags with your school’s logo can be used to hold welcome packets containing different items that a student may be required to take with them or things that they may otherwise find useful. These custom bags can also find a second life as everyday bags or even as reusable grocery or laundry bags, which students and alumni alike will find useful.

These are just a few of the things you can use to promote your school. Check out Wristband Creation for a wide selection of customizable items you can use to share your school’s brand.
