2019 Metallic Trend
The metallic trend made an impact in fashion this year. During the spring and summer seasons we saw an expanded color palette I’m all for promoting this season. However, I understand most of you would rather stick to the more traditional holiday shades. Enter silver and gold, red, blue, rose and smoke.
At DiscountMugs our product specialists were also all about the metallic trend and brought in some of the most desirable in custom promos. Take a look inside for lovely water bottles and travel mugs, lunch bags and drawstring bags, and visit our site for other unlisted categories. Head to the search bar and lookup 'metallic' for more exciting results.
The holidays are all about celebrating the people we love, the goals we met, and the growth we’ve made. Think sending your most important account a savory chocolate, trail mix, ham and cheese package, or giving every one of your guests, holiday ornaments to remember your time together. Custom plates, napkins, can coolers and party sunglasses can only but add some more fun and flavor to your party.
Get in the giving spirit of the holidays, make your festivities stand out, and find everything you need to celebrate all who made this year your best one yet.

Our aim is to help you create lasting impressions in your industry, and to do that we must continue to grow ourselves. Here's some of the progress we've made to help elevate your brand:

2019 Fall Essentials
Fall season brings opportunities to grow brand recognition. Followed by a change in the elements, it makes sure we restock on weather appropriate apparel, sees that our children return to their studies, and glows when teams across our nation walk into crowded stadiums for another chance at greatness.
All occasions that demand you restock on personalized swag, you can take advantage of the opening and distribute your decorated items during local events that welcome your contribution.
Fall Trade Show Events
Awakening from the slumber of summer, the fall season also sees an uprising of trade show events and industry conventions. However, anyone who is anyone will tell you one cannot show up to such gatherings empty-handed. A competitive world where business across the nation meet to launch a product, or grab the attention of investors to help develop their innovative ideas, many will rush to the world wide web in search of custom promotional items that can communicate what their brand stands for.
Never in a million years would we forget about your favorite time of the year. Who am I kidding? It's probably all our favorite holiday. Sure, we don't get to wake up to gifts under a tree, but we do get to transform into our favorite characters. Adults get to be children if at least for a few hours, and our children beg for candy at the threat of a trick.
Did You Say, Tailgate Party?
Whether you follow high school, college or professional football, the season isn't complete without the infamous tailgate parties. The best part is, even a few non-fans will be seen enjoying some barbecue and cool drinks with their antsy friends. Football season is more than just a time for sports fans to cheer for their favorite team. Football season is the time when whole families gather round the American-blooded pastime to celebrate the spirit of competition and championship.
Don't miss the opportunity to celebrate with fellow fans and show support for your favorite team.
Cafe and Gifts
I make a small pause to celebrate the revival of coffee. Sure, you've been ordering your iced lattes and teas to keep away the heat. However, we can all cry for joy as hot coffee makes its comeback during fall season. And don't even get me started on pumpkin spice. No, I will not acknowledge comments about how much you despise it.
On a serious note, fall season is a time for tradition. Our business begun with a simple vision - customize ceramic mugs. These days, promotional products are as innovative as your imagination can reach but there's something quite romantic about the culture behind our custom mugs. Look inside for ceramic, stainless steel and plastic styles that will get you to think twice.
The Time to Say Thanks
Of course, fall is also the time when we start to look around and celebrate our year-long accomplishments. Can you believe it? The year nears its end and we cannot forget to thank those who helped us reach our goals. Saying thanks is more than just a gesture. When we give thanks, we acknowledge the impact our connections and relationships have in our success. We take the time to recognize the nature of our kind - humans weren't made for solitude, and a simple thank you can make those close to you feel recognized for their contribution.
Finally, this year isn't just any good old year. If you listen closely you can hear the drums of election campaigns nearing. Yes, you heard it first here. It's time for political souvenirs - get ahead of the game and pre-order yours here!
Personalized our custom caps, water bottles, t-shirts and much more with the symbols and colors representing your party of affiliation. Duty calls as an exciting year peeks through the tail end of 2019. Get involved - your vote matters.
Let us know in the comments below what you thought of our fall season picks and what you'd like to see in the winter season. We too are ahead of the game! Don't forget to view, download and share with your friends.
A polarizing topic, Back to School season is about to make its grand appearance. Soon, floods of contrasting groups - some showing their support (parents) while others (their children) brood in disdain - will be seen rushing to nearby stores to begin their preparations. Teachers, parents and students alike will put their differences to the side and work together towards a common goal: stock up on pens, pencils, notebooks, backpacks uniforms and other supplies that will be essential to the new school year.
The truth is we’re all sorry to see our summer vacation come to an end. However, a brand-new school year brings with it a swamp of opportunities, strategies and resources that promise to elevate us closer to a better future. Follow us inside our Back to School Catalog and learn how branded promotional items can help your business or organization this season.
According to the National Retail Federation, American families are expected to reach a combined total spending of $80.7 billion this year alone. Second to the holiday season only, back to school is one of the most profitable seasons of the year. Business owners across industries can and will benefit from a period when parents and students are getting ready to make some of the most important purchases of the year. Anywhere from electronics, real estate, school supplies to apparel – trades across the plane will find this to be a most lucrative time, and you can too increase your revenue during the upcoming months.
The following are some of our most popular categories:
An invention that sought to relieve the discomfort and limitation our hands experience when we carry heavy loads for long periods of time, the backpack is now commonly used by the military, hiking enthusiasts, students and even the modern businessman and woman. The backpack has indeed experienced several transformations, and modern shoppers have come to adopt them as accessories to show off their individuality.
A time when backpacks literally take center stage, back to school season is a great time to refresh and repopulate your stock with modern styles and designs to attract a larger shopping crowd. Some of our most popular styles include custom clear plastic backpacks and laptop backpacks. Made to solve two of our most current issues, one is a favorite at schools looking to increase safety precautions while the latter allows us to transport computer laptops with comfort and ease.

Back to College
So, back to college isn’t technically one of our categories. However, colleges and universities are among the customers with a higher repeat purchase rate in our business, and that comes to no surprise to us, really. Gift shops and bookstores across universities in our country are filled with custom back to school supplies that are guaranteed to earn them a huge return on their investment. Besides the obvious reason – students need their supplies – they’re also more likely to purchase in-campus when such items are personalized with the school name, mascot, motto or seal.
Custom t-shirts, embroidered baseball caps, notebooks and portfolios, travel mugs and backpacks are some of the favorites. However, we have seen an increase in technology item purchases and there isn’t any magic there either. Our world is changing, and with it the education system. Students rely on their tech items more and more, which means there’s also a well of opportunities for you to reach and expand your audience. Think phone chargers and power banks, as well as headphones and usb drives. These are all great promotional items that blend utility and space you can use to further establish your brand image.
Now that we’re back on track, I must bring up another one of our top categories of the season. We all have our reasons, but c’mon, everybody loves uniforms! While it was a while ago, I was a student once and I understand boys and girls turn towards clothing items and accessories to express themselves. However, while there are also opposing opinions on the matter, uniforms do solve a lot of the issues our society faces these days. I’ll start with the obvious – uniforms are made with long lasting fabrics that can last and survive through the school year and save parents hundreds if not thousands of dollars a year.
Uniforms also bring a sense of belonging to students. In a world where information and choices seem to be coming from all directions, a polo shirt embroidered with your school seal in the morning will feel like a piece of paradise to our already overwhelmed youth. And while my intention isn’t to victimize students, I’m sure many of our subscribers – probably even you who is reading right now – will be able to relate to the picture I’m trying to paint here.
While it is true that our differences make us all the better and stronger, it is also that which brings us together that builds community and strength.
Let’s not forget about custom lunch bags and boxes. While schools today provide parents with the choice to prepay for their children’s lunches, many still prefer to send them off to classes with home-prepped meals or snacks they can munch on throughout the day. Great promo items students will be able to use throughout the year, lunch bags personalized with your team mascot or school motto can be a great welcome gift to give them on the first day of class.
You might be thinking about your five-year-old nice or nephew now. Yes, it’s true they would prefer lunch boxes printed with their favorite animated heroes. However, that does get a little old and outdated when they start growing up and we all remember how tough it can be out there in the playground (a little place I sometimes like to call the wild), but I digress. Think field trips and other off-site gatherings where your team of class can show off their team spirit.

And finally, the introduction you’ve all been waiting for. Personalized school supplies are just clearly the cherry on top. Affordable and essential to the learning process, promo items like pens, highlighters, notebooks, erasers and school pouches will not be making a disappearing act any time soon. Whether you’re a school principal looking for matching supplies you can have across departments, or a teacher wanting to personalize your classroom experience, our wholesale school supplies are just the best choice in town.
Easy to customize and available in color options that’ll definitely accommodate to your unique needs, our promotional office supplies translate from the classroom to other school events like club meetings, PTA gatherings, school district conferences, orientation day and much more. Take a look inside our back to school catalog for the best deals and guaranteed lowest prices.
When back to school season comes around, there’s something else we can expect and that’s the sound of school march bands across football fields and practice lots. Friday night lights chase the darkness of stadiums away around colleges and high school turfs and welcome young footballers trying to make their mark. Tailgate season makes its entrance and the atmosphere changes among campuses. Rivalry and competition fueled by huts and hikes is pacified only by a backwards counting clock reaching the end, and the hope of meeting again on the field if just for another night.
Although not necessarily back-to-school items per se, custom koozies, stadium cups and folding chairs are a favorite among supporting parents and fans cheering for their team on the stands. Custom team spirit items like foam hands, hand clappers and plastic megaphones are also popular among our customers. Browse our collection to personalize with your team mascot – there’s no time to get ready for the game like today.
Don’t forget to browse our markdown items! At DiscounMugs we love to bring you’re the lowest prices in the industry, guaranteed, and that includes already markdown items to help you save even more.

As the Sun reaches its highest position in the northern hemisphere, we can feel the energy rising as people get ready to welcome the summer solstice. That means crowds will be flocking to the sea or the nearest lake, visit local attractions with their young ones, and just plain enjoy the joy and warmth of the season. Summertime can be slow for certain businesses, however, there’s no reason to stop engaging your audience. Dive into our downloadable 2019 summer catalog for seasonal promotional items that will help you stay connected with the relationships you’ve built so far, as well as create the opportunity for some new ones.
Reach Out to The Community
During the summer people spend a lot more time outdoors, and that’s to be expected. For starters, temperatures rise – often to uncomfortable degrees, so we urge you to stay safe under the sun – and many take the opportunity to take a trip down to the lake or the ocean. As layers of clothing drop along the sandy trails and wet grass, we hear the voices of children laughing and shouting in ecstasy. Adults will be joining in as well, because fun isn’t just for the kids, only this time it will be their turn to look after the little mischiefs.
Your business can benefit from the nostalgic feeling the season brings. Parents everywhere will want to create fun memories wit their young, and they sure won’t be able to do without a few summer essentials like, folding chairs, water bottles, beach tote bags and beach balls. Gear up with our customizable promo items in time for your community outreach events and really see your efforts give you the wanted results you seek.
Get Summer Camp Ready
If I’m being honest, I will have to tell you summertime is also a time of worry for working parents. Although many of them will plan their vacation around the season, others won’t be as lucky – plus we’re talking about two months here! The average employee will be able to get away from work about 5 to 10 days only. Some parents will resort to a trusty friend, one that never fails, even year after year - come in Summer Camp.
Whether your campground hosts children daily or is fully equipped for a sleepaway program, you will be required to have a few essentials that ensure they’re kept from harm during their stay. Browse our favorite camp gear and order personalized with your camp logo and motto. You may e-mail camp subscribers and suggest they purchase such equipment prior to arrival or give away free at the end of the season so every camper goes back home with a token of their stay. At the very least you should consider custom t-shirts printed with your camp logo – they go a long way.
Attract the Avid Wanderer
If all else fails, simply appeal to a crowd of avid wanderers. They’re everywhere around you, the nomads and the explorers, the adventurers and drifters, the pilgrims and travelers – summer season holds a very special place in their hearts, and our custom promotional items can get you in a little closer, too. Going on the road requires our wanderers prepare before their trip – unless they’re looking for unwanted surprises, but perhaps we’ll explore this group another time. Most people will want to pack a few survival essentials and you can your ability for foresight will determine how close you get to your audience to spark a connection.
At DiscountMugs we carry anywhere from custom sunglasses to waterproof bags and media pouches, as well as pop up tents and blankets, beach and yoga mats, and toys like frisbees so they can have some fun at rest stops or when they reach their destination. Stoking up with seasonal gear can make your quick store a friendly place for our hikers and outdoor lovers. Your items of choice can be personalized with your store name and a fact about your town. These can too double as gifts visitors will end up taking back home to share with their loved ones and friends.
Keep The 4th in Mind
Yes, it’s about that time again. I can’t almost believe it, but half the year is gone, and we’ll soon be celebrating in red, white and blue. The best part is our nation turns yet another year young and our pride will be almost impossible to hold inside. If you haven’t got a clue yet, let me just remind you the 4th of July is only a few weeks away. Alright, so you did know what I had in mind … but let me have this one, will ya? Fireworks are sizzling in my ear and I can see kids rejoicing with shiny sparklers. If you’re anything like me, you’re also looking forward to the special day, plus nothing says summer season like that fourth day in July.
Whether you’re celebrating with close ones, or are planning a huge block party, at DiscountMugs we can help you with some of the planning. You must shop our American Flag sunglasses and American Flag lunch bags. A great way to make the theme of your gathering come all together, these awesome shades are great favors your guests will be rocking during your event and cherish for years to come. In addition, there’ll surely be a lot of food and you want to be ready with fun gear your guests can use to take some of it back home to enjoy at a later time. Our plastic stadium cups and U.S. Flag flexible key tags are also great items to consider.
We also made some room for testimonials! We’ve received great praises from catalog subscribers, and never in a hundred years had we imagined how well this section would do. Share Your Success Stories with Us to be featured on upcoming editions.
I’d like to take this time to thank those of you who take the time to leave us comments and reviews – we honestly appreciate the feedback.
Browsing the web in search for the latest trends in promotional items may sometimes feel a little soul crushing. Can you ever be sure you’re getting the right item for your brand? Will your custom giveaways communicate an accurate translation of your message? The uncertainty can make the shopping experience somewhat daunting, but at DiscountMugs we strive to make the process easier. Follow us inside our most current catalog to shop the latest deals, new arrivals and explore market tendencies that can help strengthen your marketing efforts this season.
Inspiration for your promotional items can come from unexpected peoples and places. However, why not go straight to the source and take advantage of our extensive experience in the industry? Here's some insight that can help you find the perfect match for your special occasion.
Some of our custom promotional items maintain a consistent market demand throughout the year, while others are typically driven by seasonality. This time a year, when our hemisphere starts to tilt towards the sun and the days turn longer, it’s common to see an increased interest in sporting and outdoor items. That being said, we definitely urge you to stay away from custom items like sweaters and other heavy felt clothing items. Keep in mind this will not include clothing accessories like traditional baseball caps or dad hats, of course.
As you may have already guessed, some of our season favorites include sunglasses, water bottles, beach tote bags, coolers and backpacks. I’m sure it’s all making sense to you by now. Let’s dive a little deeper and explore some other seasonal favorites we’ve noticed throughout the years.
The Right Imprint Method
Oh wait, I almost forgot! Choosing the right imprint method for your promotional items is key to the process. Let’s explore some of our more frequently used methods or visit us our site to learn more about all eleven imprint methods employed at our facility.
The heat transfer method is best for intricate designs and helps bring out the best in your artwork. It’s more commonly used on textiles and allows us to achieve a full color process with optimal ink coverage.
Digital UV Printing
Digital UV printing is one of the fastest processes in the industry. It uses ultra-violet lights to dry and cure ink as it is printed on your products of choice and it’s mostly used on items like water bottles and acrylic tumblers.
Ideal for work and school polo shirts, and baseball caps, our embroidery machinery sews at an average rate of 10,000 stitches per design and allows up to 16 thread colors to accommodate to complex logos and shading.
Screen printing is the number one choice when it comes to ink accuracy. Plus, it allows us to scale down to small items like ceramic mugs and pens.
Mother’s Day Gifting
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and showing appreciation for the sacrifices they make should be at the top of your list. Although the holiday is very much and intimate day when families get together to celebrate the women in their lives, groups and organizations may also join in the jubilee. The catch is moms are unique individuals and shopping in bulk is probably causing you a little bit of stress now.
Whatever items you do end up selecting, your intention and message will be the things they remember in the end. Make it caring and lasting like their love.
This year’s selection included lip balms, blankets, umbrellas and a few others. However, I do have to say mom’s love stemless wine glasses, tote bags and mugs. Upload your custom artwork or design online with the help of our Design Lab.
Father’s Day Gifting
The same can be said about dad in that, although he rarely mentions it, he also like to feel loved and appreciated. For centuries dads have been made out to appear distant and non-nurturing, but nothing could be farthest from the truth. Although society has given each parent a very structured role to play in the household, modern families continue to bring down these preconceived ideas and create new ones that adapt to their specific needs.
Some things will never change, however, and the thing about dad is he prefers gifts with a practical use. Sure, you can have the kids decorate the card and prepare breakfast to surprise him in bed – which would be amazing and appreciated – but deep-down dad’s just waiting to be surprised with a cool gadget he gets to play with or solve like a puzzle.
Our season’s selection includes Bluetooth speakers and charging power banks, as well as cases for tech accessories, gym bags and hip flasks. I’m definitely leaning towards the flask!
Café and Gifts
Although some will prefer cold over hot brews, people need coffee no matter the time of the year. As the days start to get hotter, you’ll notice a flock of new and regular customers returning for the special flavors in your store. Welcome them back for the season with brand new drinkware personalized with your insignia, and eye-catching goodies they can purchase at your store as a souvenir.
Our donut stress balls are still a favorite among many of our audiences, and for obvious reasons! The almost realistic look on this item is so enticing it almost always ends up drawing attention from audiences. However, other customers prefer our stainless-steel tumblers - these stay fashionable almost all throughout the year and can be used for both hot and cold beverages. Caps and water bottles are also cool items you can order printed according to your needs for customers who lean towards more practical gifts.
Having these around your coffee shop or gift store can change the way you engage with your visitors! Give them a try this season and leave us a comment below. We’d love to know how it goes.
Summer is in The Air
Yes, at DiscountMugs we’re getting ready for the change of the seasons. We know some parts of the country still haven’t awakened from their winter slumber, but realistically it will be soon when hundreds of your target audiences flock to the streets, the park, the lake and the beach! Thinking ahead is part of our game, and our product specialists have been working on summer items you just can’t leave without.
Let’s start with can coolers – there was life before them, and life after them. If you still haven’t tried out one of our custom koozies you simply must this summer. We carry neoprene, foam and stainless-steel styles for any occasion and unbelievable low prices you won’t be able to resist. Go ahead, koozies are our first pick.
We wouldn’t, of course, leave sunglasses, water bottles, frisbees and backpacks behind. Summer season is a time when exploring the world becomes part of our schedule and promotional items like these are accessories your audiences will just love to take with them on the go. Don’t forget to browse our Spots and Outdoors section for more customizable items that can get the whole squad cheering.
Lastly, don’t forget to view our section for markdown items. On occasion, our warehouse will need to move some items to make space for other products with a higher demand. In the world of promotional products trends will fluctuate according to seasonality, but no worries, our markdown items just need an extra bit of love right now and we just want them to find a forever home.

A great time to bring your brand back into the game, in our spring catalog you will find promotional items that complement the season. Your clients and employees will be dusting their gears from all the hibernating of the winter, and rush to sporting activities to get ready for the summer.

Keeping your audience engaged is the best way to keep them involved.
Celebrate Like It's Spring!
May Day, a traditional spring holiday in many ancient cultures, always falls on the 1st of May and celebrates the return of the season. A day for maypole dancing, flowers and celebration for the kindness of mother nature, it harnesses the spirit of fruitfulness.
Connect with the spirit of the season and yield results for your business. While it's not too hot out, get planning for the company picnic or street vendor event.
Select from cool promotional items like our cooler bags and totes, barbecue set, sunglasses, umbrellas, party cups and much more!

Sometimes we get lucky, except if you live in Florida, and can almost touch the change of the seasons.

No matter what your advertising needs are, when fall arrives we know winter and the holidays season aren’t far behind. Here’s an overview of our 2018 season catalog! It’s the perfect time to reach out to consumers and get your brand in on the action.
How does your company take advantage of the opportunity? Our experts have made it easier for our audiences to shop, and broken down our fall winter catalog with you in mind.
Stores and Gifts
Gift shops are a great space to engage your visitors. Be it a school, theme park, or small-town store, gift stores give tourists or guests the shopping inspiration they need to take back a piece of their experience back home. If your business relies on this experience, the holidays season is just the time for you to see your efforts bloom.

Winter is perhaps the most severe of the seasons (however, depending on where you are, some will argue summer often competes for first place). Nevertheless, there’s something romantic and peaceful about a snowfall, a quiet crystal night and frosty windows, that continues to capture the imagination of humans and influence their behavior.
While it is true that the way we react to our surroundings is in fact determined by our experiences, you can still make the most of the frosty season no matter how icy the plunging temperatures get this year.
Simply put your logo on our winter-related items for useful finds your customers will appreciate.
No, a cat didn’t run across my keyboard. Chances are the starting of the year will be rough on your business. The holiday season just ended, and while it was a time to celebrate and spend time with loved ones, many will find themselves retreating to the warmth of their homes to try and spend the least possible amount of time outside.
This can be intimidating for business owners. Perhaps you’ve been trying to close on a deal for months now and your leads are nowhere to be found. You might be thinking a meaningful e-mail might just do the trick, but do you really want to take that risk? Possibly, the best way to maintain a close connection with your customers is by presenting them with a little extra something they weren’t expecting.
Look inside DiscountMugs 2019 Winter Catalog and send meaningful gifts instead. People are always ready for gifts, wink wink.

1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of baking cocoa, a dash of salt, 1/3 cup of hot water, 4 cups of milk, 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract, miniature marshmallows, sweetened whipped cream and cinnamon sticks.
The signature winter drink is likely to be making a sweep around coffee shops everywhere, and seasonal drinkware items are a great way to engage your audience.

Order personalized with your logo and insert a paper copy of the recipe for a unique finishing touch.
Winter Promotional Travel Accessories
Although some of us may be experiencing the aftereffects of a holiday’s hangover, many others on the other hand simply couldn’t be relieved of their duties and postponed their travels till after the new year. It’s common to hear of families reuniting during the early months of the year and your business can benefit from reaching such specific a niche.
Some items to think about include passport wallets, luggage tags, laptop backpacks, travel pouches and portable power banks. After all the overindulgence of the holiday season, your audience will appreciate promotional items they can put to use immediately and help them save some dollars.
Winter is Trade Show Season
Yes, winter is also the first wave of the trade show season and we all know that exhibiting can be a very effective marketing strategy. These events will take considerable amounts of efforts and resources so making the most out of them should be your priority. Promotional items like tote bags, pens, water bottles and notebooks are excellent choices since your customers will end up using them well after exhibition day. However, drawing attention to your booth is key to the success of your event and some exhibitors often forget to plan for a killer booth.
To be honest, boring trade show booths won’t attract any visitors. However, custom tents with personalized backdrops, thermal tents to keep visitors safe from inclement weather, printed kits and flags are all tools you can use to make your booth stand out. Just remember to take function and appearance into consideration – the combination will help your displays get more attention.
The best part about our 2019 Winter Catalog is all the savings and deals we’ve combined in one place for you.

Holiday Travel Giveaways
Life is short, which is why you always hear people saying one should make time and travel more. The holidays are a great period to travel, too. You probably don’t hear that a lot – lines are longer at the airports and touristy crowds tend to gather in larger numbers. However, the end of the year is a time when towns and cities put up all of their season decorations (e.g. lights, religious paraphernalia, and New Year's Eve decorations), seasonal theme parks re-open their gates, and everyone gathers to celebrate the year just passing. Raucous as it may sound, the environment will attract many, thus travel accessories personalized with your brand logo can make just the perfect promo. Live it up, travel more, and take your brand on the go.
Year End Celebrations
The year end party, whether for the office or one you host for family and friends, should be more that an ordinary celebration. Now just around the corner, your planning committee should be making all the preparations and final decisions for a spectacular gathering. The year-end-bash can help strengthen your relationships and close out the calendar. A time when all gather to celebrate hard work, team effort, and just love in general, our fun party favors can be personalized with your brand logo or message to last as a memento of your celebration. Glassware items, koozies, and party cups are some of the usual suspects among our customers.
Gather Up with Employees and Friends
Combined with the season of goodwill, the year-end-wrap brings everyone together under a common goal. If you already have rituals in place, such as award ceremonies, you’re probably ahead of the herd. If you aren’t, the arrival of the New Year gives you an opportunity to connect with your employees and those who have helped you along the way. This year was probably one of the most stressful years yet, allow everyone to blow the valve and release some steam. The idea, however, is to get a head start and get all of your planning in now!

Parents everywhere are spending the big bucks in their family vacation, and even if you’re staying home this summer, keeping your kids entertained doesn’t come at a cheap price. Don’t even get me started on sending them off to college for the first time – there isn’t enough time in the day with all the planning and shopping you need to get through to make sure they’re all set for their first day.
Don’t hold off on your back to school shopping. Trends show prices skyrocket the closer we get to the first day of school. Get started now and look inside our seasonal catalog to see how much you can save on favorites and other essentials.
A back to school shopping list will most likely contain some of the following (just to mention a few):
- Agenda or planner to keep track of assignments
- Pencil pouch
Peek below to see what you can order with us. Our amazingly cheap wholesale prices post a great advantage for schools looking at welcome gifts or a way to simplify the arduous task for busy parents.
Whether starting off at grade school or taking the big leap to college, some back to school supplies are ever present in that list we talked about earlier. Our wholesale prices make it easy and convenient to order in bulk and help promote school spirit at the beginning of the school year or raise funds all throughout.
Some of the essentials that made it to our list are backpacks, water bottles, lunch bags, notebooks, highlighters and pencil pouches.
School uniforms can be boring and bland, but there’s a way to make them truly unique and make your student body feel special. Simply personalize with an embroidered emblem of your school, mascot or motto and make available to students for purchase so that they feel part of the team right from the start.
Our apparel selection can also help you supply each class with breezy t-shirts and caps to make physical education more bearable.
All backpacks are not created equal. Our selection includes anywhere from drawstring backpacks to sling, traditional, messenger and computer backpacks to help even the most advanced of students succeed throughout the year. Side pockets, secure zippered closure, strong and secure straps, as well as interior compartments that make organizing easier make up some of the perks of shopping our custom backpacks.
Of course, you can also personalize to your liking and enjoy wholesale prices to ensure they stay affordable and within means to all students.
Just because it’s a school you don’t have to send your kids off in style. Lunch bags are a must (especially during earlier years), and the more unique the lunch box the happier the kid. Our unique bags include the ‘Paws and Claws’ collection so that your little ones can show off to other students, but also more traditional styles as well as durable and dual compartment snack and food jars that will impress even adults.
Shop in bulk and make them available at your school bookstore or gift shop – they’re a great way to expand your inventory, too.
The beginning of the school year also marks the beginning of football season. Students going back to college will be excited to reunite in the stands to cheer on their favorite team – while newcomers will be happy to join the crowds in the celebrations.
Tailgate essentials include folding chairs, coolers and bar-b-que sets, as well as table throws, reusable stadium cups, pennants and other items like napkins all custom printed with your school mascot. Although their studies require more attention, it can’t harm them to release some steam on a Friday night.
Health and Fitness
Make sure you provide them with items that encourage them to stay healthy and fit throughout the year. Their physical state will affect their state of mind and their ability to concentrate on their studies. Items like water bottles, jump ropes, yoga mats, and smart phone arm bands are all accessories you can personalize with the school name and logo and add to their campus pride.
Out of town students will spend a lot of their time in the school food court and campus café. Their studies require maximum concentration and top-notch nutrition to contribute to their wellbeing. Although disposable drinkware is a go-to for most institutions, you can set your campus apart by purchasing personalized reusable coffee mugs and drink tumblers. These can be returned to the counter after use or sold to students to help raise funds for your school.
If you’re thinking about breakage rates, consider shopping stainless steel mugs that will prove resistant to even the most distracted of your students.
Awards and Recognition
No matter how old we get, a part of us always strives to be recognized for the efforts we make. You might be thinking it’s still early in the year to be thinking about purchasing trophies and awards, but you can take advantage of our low wholesale prices and amazing discounts by shopping ahead.
