How Free Swag Can Boost College Spirit

School Spirit Boosting Giveaway Swag
Scott Kalapos on Mar 14, 2022

School spirit is one of the most essential parts of a student’s college experience. It helps create a sense of community and pride that everyone can share and enjoy together. It's important to boost and promote school spirit, as an enthusiastic school will be a successful one. Providing branded products with a school's name, mascot, or logo is a fantastic way to enhance spirit among students. From personalized water bottles to custom foam fingers, there’s a multitude of unique custom swag items for schools at 4AllPromos.

Showcasing School Pride

Custom college swag is among the most popular promotional school spirit ideas, and for good reason. When a school creates custom t-shirts, logo imprinted bracelets, and even custom BIC pens, it will have simple yet effective giveaways that will go a long way. By giving out swag for free at pep rallies, club meetings, or student centers, students have the perfect incentive to represent their school with those products. Students often want to share these activities and giveaways with others. When students see their friends with these promotional products, they’ll most likely want some too.

It’s All About Bringing People Together

One of the best parts about distributing custom college merchandise to students is that it can help bring them together and promote team spirit. It can also build up events, and even send custom messages. Whether you hand out custom t-shirts for sports teams and fans or distribute pocket hand sanitizers to help promote safety, custom products can truly help people connect.

In addition to bringing students together, strong school pride helps to create a great reputation for schools on and off campus. When other people see a consistent representation of your school, it keeps them interested and makes them want to know more about your institution. They may even want to represent the school themselves. As you can see, handing out promotional items for schools is an excellent idea in more ways than one.

The Best College Swag Merchandise to Distribute

Here at 4AllPromos, we have a wide range of custom products that can help boost your school pride. Some of our favorites include:

  1. Custom Foam Fingers

    Foam fingers have been a sports fan staple for years. Whether looking to liven up your school’s next football game, an upcoming pep rally, or representing your school on a national tournament stage, foam fingers are a perfect tool. Our wholesale foam fingers are great because students and other fans will keep them as souvenirs long after the final buzzer sounds.  

  2. Custom Car Magnets

    Car magnets are becoming another popular way to represent schools. Without the stickiness or difficulty of removing a bumper sticker, customized school magnets let students show their support for their school on their cars easily. Full color car magnets are great products to hand out at almost any activity, from your school’s first-year orientation to club meetings. They're also great for showing the presence of a fanbase convoy style when traveling to road games.

  3. Temporary Tattoos

    These are a creative, fun way for students to show off their school pride. They liven up any outfit and fit spirited gatherings a bit better than water bottles or keychains. This makes them an even more fun accessory to add to events. They can be customized with your school’s logo or a cute saying that fits its personality. Students can display your institution on their cheeks, arms, and anywhere they can think to show school spirit. Temporary tattoos are also affordable and easy to save for future events.

  4. Promotional Rally & Fitness Towels

    Rally and fitness towels can be used in multiple ways. Custom towels can liven up a crowd for events as students cheer their team. After the event, rally and fitness towels can also be used as regular towels. They’re a great piece of merchandise to give out to students that will likely see use well into the future.

  5. Stadium Cushions

    There is nothing quite as useful for sporting events as giving out stadium cushions to students as they enter the stadium. Games can be long and bleachers aren’t always the most comfortable places to sit. With stadium cushions, your students are getting a free piece of school merchandise they can use frequently and represent their school at the same time. Pro Tip: Try swag geared toward your older fans, including more comfortable folding chairs and carrying bags.
