Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Can you believe it’s August already? Though as it’s expected to hit 110 degrees here in Lawrence today, I’m looking forward to fall and cooler temperatures. And speaking of cool, we’ve got some cool ideas for showing your school spirit this fall.

BPA Free Tritan Water Bottles

BPA Free Tritan Water Bottles
While CamelBak and Nalgene Water Bottles remain among our most popular water bottles, we also offer a great new line of sleek and durable water bottles. Made from BPA free Tritan Copolyester, these bottles are available in a variety of beautiful colors and styles. And replacing disposable plastic water bottles is eco-friendly.

Aluminum and Stainless Steel Water Bottles

Aluminum and Stainless Water Bottles
While we’re talking water bottles, we might as well show off some of our popular aluminum and stainless steel water bottles. Available in many colors, shapes and sizes, these bottles are an excellent alternative to plastic water bottles. A great giveaway at pep rallies or to use as a school fundraiser.

Non-Woven Two-Tone Drawstring Sports PackDrawstring Backpacks
A great choice when promoting school spirit, drawstring backpacks are ideal for sports teams and youth groups. Many backpacks are available in non-woven polypropylene, making them eco-friendly and recyclable. Available in many colors and styles. The backpack featured here is the Non-Woven Two-Tone Drawstring Sports Pack. This pack is made from 80 gram non-woven, water-resistant polypropylene, and features an outside pocket, reinforced eyelets and drawstring closure. Available in red, apple green, orange, purple, yellow, blue and forest green.

Foam FingersFoam Fingers
Is your team number one in your heart? Let everyone know how you really feel with foam fingers and foam cheering mitts. Available in many colors, sizes and shapes, foam cheering products are a great way to make a big impression. Includes a hand slit for easy cheering. You’ll have your opponents shaking in their boots once they realize they’re playing number one!

Stadium CushionsStadium Cushions
While I love watching football, I’m not a fan of the bleachers without my trusty stadium cushion! A great way to promote your business and your team spirit, print your logo on one side and your mascot on the other. Great for pep rallies or as a school fundraiser, stadium cushions will keep your fans comfortable while they cheer on their favorite team. Available in different sizes, styles and thicknesses. I prefer mine as thick and soft as possible.

Gildan HoodieTeam Apparel
Whether your team consists of your staff or your football team, apparel is a great way to display your school spirit. We offer both screen printing and embroidery on a wide range of items including t-shirts, polos, hoodies, boxers, sweats, headware, shorts, wind jackets and much more. Pictured is the Gildan Heavy Blend Fleece Hoodie. Made from a 50/50 cotton/polyester blend, this 7.75 oz. brushed back jersey fleece includes a hood neck with drawstring, front pouch pocket, spandex reinforced rib knit cuffs and waistband, double-needle cover-stitched armholes, cuffs and waistband.

This is only a small sampling of the products that can be used to show your school spirit. Let your imagination run wild, or better yet, let ours. We’re brimming with fresh and creative ideas for your next promotion or event.

Tangible advertising used to promote products, services or companies, promotional products can be found almost anywhere and in virtually any form, even game day giveaways.

Whether they’re handed out by event staff or hurled into the stands by a team mascot, fans young and old can’t get enough of their team-themed freebies. These promotional product MVPs range from wearables to noisemakers, hand fans to foam footballs. Among the most popular game day giveaways are:

  • Lanyards
  • Magnets and decals
  • Posters and signs

Businesses small and large also approach college sports with the same fervor and excitement as fans. In addition to handing out branded products at games and tailgating events, they often send staff, vendors and other business associates team-themed products. The most popular options include:

  • Stadium cushions and folding chairs
  • Wearables (t-shirts to watches)

College sports bring a very large and diverse mix of fans together.

Next time you’re cheering on your alma-mater or just lending your support to an underdog, take a second to look at the name on your koozie or rally towel, you never know when they might come in handy.
