Send Your Customers Back to School in Style with Personalized Supplies!

For many parents, the end of summer signifies the beginning of hectic schedules, high-spending and hasty decisions: enter back-to-school season.

Emotions run high as families scramble to drag their kids away from the pool and into department stores – which can feel discouraging in itself. Toss in the unreasonable prices of plastic character backpacks and a kid’s desire to own every impractical celebrity-endorsed notebook available. The parental pressure to keep the kids happy and the teachers happier mounts, and suddenly the school shopping trip has turned into one giant, expensive guilt trip.

And unfortunately, all of those overwhelming emotions don’t disappear at checkout – and they are not unique to just parents, but teachers, too. The thing about kids is… as cute as they are, as responsible as they may seem…there’s an exceptionally good chance that $50 Spiderman backpack will need to be replaced before the third week of school even starts. Markers and pens will be lost after the first art project of the year. Water bottles and keys will be misplaced. The frustration and spending seems to never end.

But – what if you could help make that first day of school extra special for the kids while also making parents feel a little more secure about how much money they are forking over for supplies (which may or may not be lost on day one)? Personalized school supplies are easy to produce with a little organization and a lot of creativity and fun!

Check out these back-to-school ideas to offer your customers and help their families start the year off right!

Custom Backpacks for All Personalities

With its sublimatable front panel, these canvas backpacks can be customized to appease kids of all ages, which helps make going back to school a breeze. Personalize them with your customers’ names, monograms or school mascot.

This backpack includes a padded laptop pocket and side mesh pockets to store reusable water bottles.

Stay Hydrated, Save the World

Pair the backpack above with a custom matching water bottle – this way, kids will never mistake it for a friend’s. Keep germs away and the kids hydrated while saving the planet from the overuse of plastic and styrofoam cups.

Dude, Where’s My Car?

While your customers may have a bigger problem on their hands if their 16-year-old comes home without their car, losing the keys to said car can be just as big of a dilemma!

Creating custom keychains can help your customers easily find their keys and support their favorite sports team or player. Shop sublimation keychains on our site – our selection includes a football helmet, megaphone, jersey and more!
