Promotional Merchandise Opportunities for Freshers Week: Part 2

Earlier this week we began discussing the importance of taking your brand to freshers' fair, when they are, and why the time to start thinking about it is now! We’re covering the benefits to both your company and students receiving your products for handing out promotional products at freshers' fairs. The long and the short of it is that students love free products, so to keep them sweet we definitely recommend checking out a few more of our suggestions below.  

Travel mug  
A few examples of what we offer: 

Picture this. It’s 9 am. There’s a bucket-load of tired/hungover students in a chilly lecture theatre wishing they were snuggled up in bed with a hot cup of tea. Whilst you, unfortunately, can’t help them get out of the lecture, you can help them with the hot cuppa. Our travel mugs are perfect for travel around campus, to sports events and for even the longest of days. Some are even dishwasher safe! 

Benefits to your company: 

  • Full colour printed using dye sublimation for a photo quality print, giving stunning visual results of your image, certain to draw attention to your brand
  • Used daily by students to ensure regular exposure of your brand

Benefits for students: 

  • Will save them with a caffeine kick in their 9 am lectures!
  • Drink stays warm all day
  • Some are dishwasher safe
  • Leak-proof

Lanyards 
A few examples of what we offer: 

Freshers are given a lot of responsibility when they come to University. One of these responsibilities is their new flat key, with a lot of halls charging a dear price if needing replacing. Save them some money by investing in some lanyards as a promotional product which will be worn every day!

Benefits to your company: 

  • Express lanyards printing in the UK allowing a fast lead time from proof approval (72 hours!)
  • Good space for the logo to be printed multiple times
  • Used daily so regular brand exposure

Benefits for students: 

  • Useful to not lose keys
