Back-to-School Buying Guide

Getting ready to go back-to-school can be an exciting time, but it can also be stressful for parents, teachers, and students who need to prepare. Truthfully speaking, Motivators has it all; you'll find everything from school supplies to games and toys. But with such a vast array of back-to-school items to choose from, you might be feeling a bit lost. Ask yourself the questions below and we'll help you sort out exactly what you need!

Looking for the essentials?

Many school supplies -- like pens, pencils, highlighters, and notebooks -- are necessities that parents, students, and teachers all need before the school year starts. And ordering these items in bulk ensures you won't ever have to buy another writing utensil again! Indeed, parents and students who order at the beginning of the year will be set for quite some time.

Teachers can also benefit from ordering important school supplies before classes start. Stock up on pens and pencils as backups for your students during big tests. Motivators even carries number two pencils that can be used on standardized exams. Other great back-to-school products include erasers, pencil cases, pencil sharpeners and clip on reflectors. You can also print these products with your school's name and logo and hand them out throughout the year to students who have achieved high scores.

Want to boost their school spirit?

The start of the school year means homecoming games, pep rallies, fundraisers, and parades. Help your students show off their school pride with school spirit handouts! Motivators offers dozens of products to get the kids excited, from awareness bracelets to foam fingers. Pennants, beach balls and drawstring backpacks are always a big hit. Best of all, all of our school spirit products can be printed with your school name, logo and mascot. What a great way to lift their spirits and promote your school at the same time!

Searching for early childhood or pre-school giveaways?

When shopping for youngsters, it's important to pay attention to which giveaways are CPSIA-compliant. The CPSIA refers to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, a law requiring manufacturers of children's products to provide viable proof that their products conform to all aspects of the law including lead and phthalates limits and mandatory toy standards.

Motivators makes it easy to find early childhood items. Simply search for products marked with the "Safe for Kids CPSIA Certified" icon. They include, but are not limited to, toys, clothes, and coloring books. These giveaways are great for motivating the little ones.

Greeting incoming freshman?

Being a freshman -- in high school and in college -- is hard enough as it is. Make life a little easier for the incoming class by handing out giveaways on their first day. Fun items like stress balls and decals will help alleviate the tension students feel when starting at a new school. Plus, imprinting these giveaways with your school logo will remind them of the opportunity and adventure that lie ahead.

Welcoming back sophomores, juniors, and seniors?

Making the freshman class feel at home is, of course, very important. But don't forget about their older classmates! Chances are the sophomores, juniors and seniors at your school have already run through their supplies and essentials from last year. Use it to your advantage -- distribute branded college handouts that boast your school's name and logo. Products like boxers, t-shirts, water bottles and sleep pants all make fantastic college giveaways. Recipients will surely use your giveaways often, and they might even bring them home, helping to increase your educational institution's recognition.

Promoting a club or sport?

You'll never know how many people are interested in joining your organization or playing on your team if you don't get the word out there. Distribute logoed giveaways at the beginning of each semester to recruit new members. Popular items for clubs include bags and key chains. Branded athletic apparel will help encourage active individuals to join your team. You can even garner support for your team by handing out fun t-shirts to fans!

Fraternities and sororities are always on the lookout for new recruits, too. Up the ante on your promotion by handing out products that are affordable yet useful, like stadium cups and beer mugs. Be sure to include your Greek organization's logo to make it memorable!
