Back to School with Promotional Merchandise

The first week of September always means 'back to school', even those who haven't been to school for many years associate the month with school time. So, why not encourage school children and their parents to think about your brand this September with promotional merchandise?

Back to school can be a scary time for everyone, young five-year-olds may be starting their school career, children moving to new schools, starting college or university. From the age of five right up until twenty, it can be a scary time. Even if you aren't moving schools or starting somewhere new, going up a year can be just as scary. There are new teachers to contend with, exams and other important things to focus on. However, whilst children may not believe it at the time, school days are some of the most important and fun lifetime events.

The shops are currently busy with parents buying items for the new school year, shoes, uniforms, stationery, to name a few! Whilst some parents choose to purchase these items at the beginning of summer, many wait until the end as children grow so quickly!  This can be a very stressful time after a six week holiday, as the shops are packed and children are unhappy about having to go back to school, this is where your business can help.

Think about the items you needed whilst at school, of course, there are your uniform and school shoes, but what other items did you require?  Lunchboxes? Pens? Pencils?  The back to school kit is vast so there are plenty of items you can buy to get your brand out there. 

Pens and pencils are a necessity when at school, what else are you going to write with?  Depending on the child’s age, schools often don't provide pens and pencils to use which means it's another thing parents need to think about before they start back. On the Total Merchandise website, we have a whole range of stationery which your children can use, from pens and pencils to highlighters and rulers. Whatever the stationery item, we are likely to have it available!

There are hundreds of back to school ideas on the Total Merchandise website, so make sure your brand isn't forgotten this September. Take advantage of our fast lead times and invest in promotional merchandise for your business, you won't regret it!
