Must Have Print Necessities for Back-to-School
Schools may be on summer break right now, but before you know it, school will be back in session! Is your school prepared for students to enter and be wowed by signage? Is your staff prepared with stationary and business cards? Are your students and parents going to be impressed with your print communication?
Let’s check out some important back-to-school print necessities to be ready for the school year!
Banners and Signs
Welcome your students back to campus or tell the community about your school’s accomplishments with eye catching banners and signage. Banners can also be used to advertise special events throughout the school year, but stay on top of it now by designing those banners at the beginning of the school year. On larger campuses, signage can be used to direct students to orientations or particular events. Here are some events you may need a banner or signage for:
– Back to school night
– Freshman Orientation
– Sports events
– Pep-Rally Decorations
Instead of handing your students and parents a stapled packet of information, offer a branded folder with printed materials inside. The welcome folder may include key dates, business cards, expectations for the school year, or a faculty directory. Speaking of expectations, a handbook is another opportunity to impress your students and parents with your print materials.
A handbook is typically a plain, printed, and stapled packet. Why not up the excitement with a nicely bound booklet that can be kept throughout the school year? If you would like the handbook to last longer, let’s look at more durable paper options so it can be referenced throughout the year.
Add your logo to notepads, letterhead, and thank you cards to add a unified look to your print communication. Students and parents will be impressed with the branding and know exactly where the communication is coming from.
Back-to-school can be a hectic time for schools, parents, and students. Be prepared by planning your print needs in advance. Contact us to discuss your needs for the upcoming school year!
