Summer is sadly coming to an end, but this means it’s time to start thinking about the up and coming school year. Elementary, middle, high school, and college will be in the full swing of things this year after being away from fully in-person school for so long. Now is the perfect time to get custom-made buttons for school.
Schools can have many uses for customized buttons, they can be used for fundraisers, spirit gear, name tags, keepsakes, and so much more. There are many fun events in the school year with that comes many opportunities to create some awesome customized buttons!
Buttons for School Clubs
When school starts back up there are normally club fairs where all the clubs set up a booth and try to get people to join. Buttons are perfect for events like this. When someone signs up for the club they get a button to put on their backpack or person. It’s a fun way to show off what club you are a part of and the club could get more recognition around the school.
Buttons aren’t always small, they can come in a size that is perfect for tabling. A 6-inch button with an easel backing can get involved when at club fairs. Using the 6-inch button for tabling at a school fair makes the information that will be on the button to be more readable. Also using a button will make your table stand out for having a unique way of displaying information.
Clubs could also use buttons for fundraisers. If a club is wanting to take a trip they’ll have to come up with the funds to do so. Selling button pins to the rest of the students is an easy way to come up with the money they need.
Getting the Students Involved
Buttons are a good way to get the students involved as well. Having a design contest among students, where they submit designs and their peers vote on their favorites, is one way to them involved at the school. Whichever design wins can go on buttons, or multiple designs could win. Having an event that encourages students to be creative is a way to keep them interested.
Sports Team Buttons
Sports can be an exciting event for schools. Many school sports teams do fundraisers to raise the money they need for extra costs. Something they could do is sell buttons to families and fans, not only will this raise money but it will also be fun for the fans. For parents, it’s fun to get a button with their child’s face on it to wear to their games and show their support.
With sports, you can use buttons for many different things such as rival school games, championships, team accomplishments, and more! Buttons will help promote team pride whether it be for middle school, high school, or college level. These buttons can also be a good keepsake, to look back on and remember the fun and greatness of this time in the player’s life.
Buttons for School Graduation
Graduation is a big deal for any grade especially high school and college graduation. What better way to commemorate this accomplishment than with a button or magnet. You could put your student’s senior pictures on the button and wear them with pride as you support your student getting their diploma. Schools can also get involved in this by creating special buttons for that year’s graduating class.
Class reunions allow old classmates to reunite and catch up on what is happening in life after graduating. Creating a special alumni button to commemorate the event that can be sold or given out is a good keepsake for those attending.
Graduation announcements for high school and college are usually sent out to friends and family before the ceremony. Instead of sending printed graduation pictures, you could send magnets with the graduate’s senior pictures on them. This is unique and creates more of a purpose for the pictures you are sending out.
Orientation/ Welcome Week
High school and colleges will often have a few days that are focused on welcoming the new students and get the returning ones back into school. There are normally lots of fun activities or even free give-aways for the students to get some spirit gear. Something that can be included in this giveaway is custom-made buttons that represent the school. These buttons can be used throughout the years attending the school and even after.
Another way to use buttons during your school’s orientation or welcome week is with name tags. During this time of the year, the students are meeting so many new people. With meeting all the new people it can be difficult to remember everyone’s name. Having name tags is an easy way for at least the leaders and staff at the orientation groups to be recognized and remembered.
School pride is something that makes school fun. Pep rallies, being in the student stands at a sporting game, and homecoming events are all fun things that students get involved in. For many students having cool spirit gear elevates the fun they have. Creating buttons for school after so much time of not being able to fully experience school would be a good thing. Buttons are fun and can be pinned on many different places such as backpacks, shirts, hats, lanyards, stick it to lockers, and more.
Parents also love spirit gear, as many enjoy supporting and trying to be a part of what their child is doing and where they are going to school. Making a spirit gear line targeted to the parents would help keep the parent interest and have more people wearing the products that the schools design.
