After more than 25 years in promotional products industry I think I've seen every kind of swag there is. Then, BAM! Something new comes along. I love every second of this business, the products, my vendors and my clients. In my spare time I love hiking, fly fishing, volunteering with local charities, getting involved in my community and hanging out with my dogs.
In a previous post we talked about ways to recognize graduates when commencement ceremonies have been cancelled. You can read that post here. In that blog we started the creative thought process on ways to use signs to recognize students and some ideas for direct mail pieces. Today we are highlighting some graduation themed swag ideas.
Adding the graduate’s name to any item creates a meaningful keepsake- who doesn’t love something with their name on it? Items like pens, drinkware, bags and more can feature the school name, the mascot, Class of 2020 design, a class quote or more then be personalized with each graduate’s name. Contact us for ideas that fit your budget and timeline.
“The tassel was worth the hassle” seems to have special meaning for the class of 2020 who had to finish out their senior years with distance learning and home school. Fun items that fit the tassel theme are fitting giveaways. Small items like these tassel key tags can fit into a small envelope for easy and inexpensive mailing as well. Need more tassel ideas? We can put those together for you.
Food is always an appreciated gift, especially in a graduation themed container. From small items like these mortarboard containers of candy or cookies printed with school name and year. We can also print the school name on a variety of tins that fit any budget. We can help you get creative with the design and packaging to make your gift unique and memorable for the graduate.
Stuffed animals- especially if it matches the school mascot- work well for all graduates from pre-school up to college. Owls and bears work overall for graduation themes, but let us do a search to see if we have an animal that will match your school mascot.
Many schools, especially private schools, Colleges & Universities often have a picturesque campus or iconic buildings. Featuring a full color pictures on items such as drinkware, coasters or bluetooth speakers. There are a variety of items that we can add your picture to, either directly on the items or on the packaging, such as this coaster set below. Contact us for ideas that will fit your budget and needs.

At this point of the COVID-19 pandemic it comes a no surprise that many schools are making the difficult decision to cancel traditional graduation ceremonies. This is such an important milestone in life and holds so much significance in marking the transition into adulthood. Finding a creative way to recognize these students for all of their hard work and help them celebrate their achievements is crucial.
Signs posted throughout town or on lined up on school property recognizing each student creates a unique experience. Lining the school parking lot with signs for each graduate gives a “drive thru” experience for the seniors. With a variety of sign materials we have options to fit all budgets. Each sign can be personalized with the graduates name and we can also incorporate graphics for honor cords they earned. Leave the back of the signs blank and have sharpies available so students can sign the back of their friends signs- at a safe social distance, of course! This will make the signs even more of a keepsake for the students. Call us today to discuss your individual needs and budget and we can help you come up with the solution that works best for you.
Private schools and colleges have an even more difficult time recognizing students. An item like this
that can be mailed out to each student alone or with other items, is a perfect memento. Add the school name and Class of 2020 to the bottom front and insert a printed list of all graduates. The insert is visible from both sides of the frame so this works well even for large graduating classes. The graduate can leave the insert in, or they can easily insert a picture of their own.
Call or email us today to brainstorm ideas to help you recognize your graduates in a way that they deserve.
