Get Ready For School Package

Nothing says "new term" quite like this bundle of goodies, which kids of all ages will love to receive. With every item printed with your school's logo, they're a great way to add an - ahem - uniform touch to the classroom, as well as ensure your students are kitted out with all they could need.

Each kit comprises a drawstring bag, pencil case, notebook and water bottle, with all items clearly branded with your logo. Whether you plan to provide them to students or make them available for purchase throughout the year, they make a great all-in-one bundle of goodies for any pupil. 

Searching for a more budget-friendly option? Take a look at our Back To School Sets, which include a bag, bottle, pen and water bottle, and can be ordered from just 50 units.

Lexicon Pencil Case Sets

For a smaller-scale bundle, look no further than our Lexicon pencil cases printed with your design and filled with must-have stationery items.

Each pencil case set contains a highlighter pen, pencil, pen and eraser. These must-have sets are available in a huge range of colours, which you can mix-and-match across products, and your logo will be printed in one colour for unmissable prominence.

Promotional Backpacks

While drawstring bags might be a popular option, our promotional backpacks are also one of our consistent best-sellers - and we bet your students will love them too.

Available to order from just 50 units, our backpacks are printed with your design in up to four colours. Choose from 10 different backpack colours to ensure a product that perfectly represents your educational establishment. If that's not quite what you're looking for, we've got plenty of other drawstring bags and promotional rucksacks that could work - be sure to check them out!

And of course, if you're looking for a classic promotional school bag for younger students, search no further than our timeless branded book bag option, shown above.

Miami Gift Sets

Looking to treat your staff? Order them our Miami Gift Sets, which offer a luxe take on the back-to-school essentials that they'll need come September.

Each set comprises a tote bag, pen, water bottle, notebook and hand sanitiser, with your logo printed to each item. Delivered in a simple gift box, it's a great set to present to your team as they return from the holidays. 

Laminated Card Bookmarks

Our promotional bookmarks are a must-have for any school library and are great for handing out to pupils every time they borrow a book.

Whether you opt to print them with details of a school-wide reading challenge or simply brand them with details about the library, these incredibly budget-friendly items are a great way to encourage kids to get reading this term. 

Take-A-Break Lunch Box

For students who bring in their own lunch, our Take-A-Break Lunch Boxes are a must-consider. BPA-free, they're available to order from just 25 units, making them a great resale option.

Each of these lunch boxes will keep snacks and sandwiches fantastically fresh throughout the day, and your design can be printed in anywhere up to full colour for a tasty dose of brand awareness. Want more ideas? Take a look at our full range of promotional lunchtime items.

Super Express Full Colour Lanyards

And finally! Whether they're used by your students, staff or both, lanyards are a cheap and easy way to safely display credentials and ID. They're also handy to distribute among students when leaving the premises for school trips, and can also be used to hold keys. 

Our striking Super Express Full Colour Lanyards are a great option if you're looking to print your school's branding in all its glory and are available with rapid UK dispatch. By the way - be sure to take a look at our selection of lanyard accessories for the perfect finishing touch!
