It’s that time of year again when teachers and school staff begin thinking about the students that are flying the nest and how to make this year’s graduation memorable. When I graduated high school, we were given a pen with the school’s name on it. It’s not to say pens don’t work but this one wasn’t nice to use and broke shortly after its first use. Like all branded products, the quality of the product you are presenting to someone should be a representation or your organisation. Most graduation classes are only 50-200 students, so it is not that expensive to invest in a product of quality over quantity, even if they are smaller like a pen or bookmark.
Why not try something new?
What about presenting students with a branded technology product that will help their transition from high school to university or the workforce?
Power banks and charging kits are a great way to help your graduating students power their devices while they adventure off into the world. Power banks can be branded with the school’s name, some can even be personalized to include the student’s name. Included can be a school motto or encouraging message. Charging kits in a handy case can also be branded to include a school logo and message.
If you plan on presenting your students with branded products, they can use on graduation night, Mobile Phone Camera Lens Kits are a fun alternative. They have different interchangeable camera lenses for different camera effects.
I recently interviewed a selection of school teachers and some said they have presented past students with an eco-friendly product. They have branded reusable coffee cups presented in trendy gift tubes or gift boxes. Providing a student with a reusable product like a good quality drink bottle or coffee cup means they will be reminded of school memories with every use – hopefully, the good times not cramming for exams or detention.
Other teachers, I spoke to have given good quality personalised pens, engraved metal bookmarks, photo frames with the school logo printed and a photo of their class and branded stuffed animal school mascots.
Speaking of stuffed animals, a graduation classic is Signature Bears. Promoloco has these bears available with a good range of t-shirts in school colours and can print your school logo.
Whether you have a large or small graduating class, Notebooks will always be put to good use. For smaller classes, we have a great range of notebooks in plenty of colours, styles and sizes available from stock for no to low minimum order quantities. Your school logo can be printed or debossed to the front of a notebook with an inspiring message. For higher quantities we can offer some customization features for larger graduating classes such as; custom pages, a page of advice for the future or message from the principal, custom checklists, photo of class or even photo of the school today vs when it opened.
I spend a lot of time working and living with people who have experience working in Australian education, so I know that time and money are always a pressure point. If this sounds like you, I am happy to make graduation gifting easier for you. Feel free to contact me for a chat about your branded product needs and budget.
