Custom Clipboards to Promote Your Business

Custom Clipboards - Ideas to Promote Your BusinessWhen buying promotional items, it is extremely important to buy useful promos. You want your giveaways to be used frequently, possibly everyday, so that your marketing message is seen more. Custom clipboards are very useful and are a great fit for many different types of business.

Below are a few ideas and suggested uses for our wide selection of clipboards as well as the top selling custom clipboards!

Ideas for Custom Clipboards to Promote Your Business

  • Doctors Offices and Hospitals - This is kind of a no-brainer. There are always tons of forms to fill out when visiting the doctor, so clipboards are a must. It makes sense to brand your clipboards so your patients can learn more about what you can offer them. Maybe your patient knows they can come for a physical, but do they also know that you can offer other medical care and save them from visiting other medical offices? Also, doctor offices are a great place for medical-related businesses to donate 10-20 clipboards with information about your medical products, such as medical supplies, medical gas, and others medical services or products that go hand-in-hand with that particular doctor office, this is a great opportunity to reach those people. Plus the doctors offices love donated supplies because it saves them money.
  • Sports Teams - Coaches who are serious about coaching their team, often carry a clipboard since they are constantly writing notes about what they need to work on with their team as well as referencing documents regarding plays and training exercises. Ifyour business is sports-related, this is a great way to promote your sporting products to your local and regional sports teams. Just have the clipboards printed with your services that you want to promote. This is great for sporting goods stores, sports medicine clinics, personal trainers, and others businesses that target athletes.
  • Schools - There are many businesses that sell educational-related products and services. What a great way to get your business name inside the protected walls of your local schools. You can't just walk in schools now and promote your business. However, why not give out custom printed clipboards to the teachers of your local school for Teacher Appreciation Week in May? Teachers are always on the go around the classroom and around the school, so a nice clipboard can come in handy for them.
  • Utility Companies - Companies that supply utilities such as water, electric, and natural gas require you to fill out forms to establish new service. Most of these waiting rooms only have chairs, so without a clipboard, what do you use as a hard service to fill out these forms? Somebody's back? Clipboards are a must. Do you want to target every household in your area? If so, get your name in front of these people by supplying your local utility companies with clipboards for their customers. Rarely will any business turn down FREE items, unless you are a direct competitor of theirs.
  • EMS Crews - During and after 911 emergency calls and non-emergency transports, the paramedic in charge of patient care has to chart various vital signs, assessments, and treatments for their patients, so they have to have a clipboard for this. However, typically, EMS clipboards are not the standard types of plastic clipboards. They need the aluminum clipboards with the storage compartment to hold additional patient care forms. Since this is a standard within EMS, why not supply these to your local ambulance service. A great time to give these out would be during EMS Week in may!
  • Home Service Companies - There are many types of businesses that perform services at your home, such as pool and spa services, appliance repair, painters, contractors, handyman services, cleaning services, pest control, landscaping, yard services, and many more. All of these people need a clipboard to do their jobs. Find the ones that are a good fit and give that company clipboards for their personnel. This is a great way to form partnerships with other business.
  • Sales - There are many sales people going from door to door and business to business selling products and services. They, often, carry a clipboard to make their notes about their sales calls. This is a great opportunity to get your business name in front of these people, as well as the people they call on.
  • Festivals and Events - There are always local festivals going on and many of these are raising money for a non-profit organization such as the American Cancer Society or your local children's shelter. In order to make these festivals and events successful, there are many volunteers needed running around putting out fires. And what do all of these festival coordinators have in their hands? Clipboards.

The truth is, most businesses will not buy items such as custom clipboards with their own business logo on them, so why not provide these items for them. This is a win-win situation, because they get free supplies that are necessary for their day-to-day business operation and you get your name in front of new potential clients.

Be strategic in forming these partnerships and who you offer these free clipboards and it will help your business gain new client and strengthen your branding.

Football Season and New School Year

August is well-known for many things, such as extreme heat, the beginning of a new school year, and my favorite, football season!

College football and high school football both start in August. The football season brings a level of excitement from fans all over the country that can't be reproduced in any other American sport. American football is our equivalent to soccer in other countries.

The sport of football draws the largest crowds of any sport in the U.S. and this hard-hitting sport brings in millions of dollars for universities and high schools all over the country. A large part of the money from college and high school football is brought in by school spirit items. This swag with the team mascot and team name are great keepsakes for fans of all ages. Additionally, these spirit items are largely responsible for team fundraising, particularly for high school football teams.

Popular Spirit Items for High School Football Teams

Foam Fingers

Foam Fingers

Over-sized foam hands and foam fingers are great for fans to waive around as they cheer on their team. These come in many different shapes in addition to the #1 foam fingers, such as many different hand symbols, paw shapes to match your mascot, mascot shapes, and many other unique shapes.

Chances are, no matter what shape you want, we have it already as a stock shape. However, if it turns out that we don't have the shape you want, we can make custom shaped foam hands. Just give us a call to discuss your specifications!

Stadium Seat Cushions

Stadium Seat Cushions

Football stadiums are not known for comfort and that's why stadium seat cushions were invented. Who wants to sit on a hard, metal or wooden bleacher seat, especially if the bench is cold or wet? We certainly don't.

Stadium cushions are a traditional fundraising spirit item that has a huge imprint area so you can get plenty of sponsorship sales to cover the cost of the cushions and raise money for your team. Choose from vinyl covered foam cushions, fabric-covered cushions, and even cushions in the shape of footballs, helmets, and team mascots. Choose from various cushion thicknesses based on your budget. Of course, the thicker the cushion, the more comfortable the cushion will be!

Thundersticks

Thundersticks Stadium Noise Makers

These incredibly popular spirit items can create a booming noise by the fans using them in the stands. Thundersticks are simply inflated sticks that are banged together to make a loud noise while cheering. They are roughly two feet long, so there is plenty of space to print your team and mascot logo on each stick.

Like the stadium cushions, these are also great to get local business sponsors to help defray some of the cost of this team swag. You can choose from domestically printed thundersticks or go with a super saver 9 week production option to save money. Other options include thundersticks with LED lights in them as well as pom pom ends, metallic material, and full color printing.

Mini Footballs

Mini Footballs Some of popular game day spirit items that you see at nearly any football game are promotional mini footballs. Not only do you see kids throwing these around the stadium before and during the game, but if you notice, you will see many adults also tossing these balls around.

Mini footballs come in several common styles. Plastic, soft vinyl, and foam are the most popular types, with plastic and vinyl being the most common due to a lower price point. These footballs are commonly thrown into the crowd by the cheerleaders during timeouts, halftime, and even after big plays. These spirit items are a staple of most football teams!

Pom Poms

Promotional Pom Poms

Promotional pom poms are one of the oldest school spirit items around. These are still a fan favorite and these poms are budget friendly to either give out in mass or sell for your school booster club.

There are several types of poms to choose from such as the traditional long stick handle, or other options such as the split ring handle, solid handle, Klicker (noise maker) handle, and even mascot shaped handles. Also, you can choose up to four different streamer colors and your desired streamer count of 500, 750, or 1000. The streamer colors come in nearly every school color in the country.

Megaphones

Plastic Cheerleading Megaphones

One sure thing that will happen at football stadium is yelling and every football fanatic wants to yell louder than their opponent. Plastic megaphones are perfect to achieve this goal of obnoxious yelling.

Megaphones can not only be sold in your booster club store, but also in your concession stand. Just buy the optional popcorn cap and sell the megaphone filled with popcorn. Then after they eat their snack, they can use the megaphone for yelling louder.

Stadium Cups

Stadium Cups

If you have a concession stand, stadium cups are a must. Sure, you can use disposable cups to service drinks to the fans; however, many of these throw away cups find their way in the bleachers and require more work cleaning.

By using plastic stadium cups, you are giving the fans a take home souvenir that is printed with your team name and mascot. You can print the schedule for the entire season on the cups to promote future games. Additionally, you can get local business sponsors and print their logo on the opposite side. By getting sponsors for the cups, your booster club gets the cups for free and you save the expense of buying disposable cups.

School spirit items are necessary items to promote your team and and to raise money for your sports. The items above only represent the most popular items and don't offer all possibilities. There are many other unique and fun spirit items that you can use for fundraising, increasing fan awareness, and promoting team spirit. If you have questions about what items might be best for your team, feel free to call one of our spirit items experts at 1-800-773-9472.

National Aviation Day Promotional Items

National Aviation Day National Aviation Day

National Aviation Day is observed on August 19 of each year and was created by President Roosevelt in 1939 to honor those who were instrumental in advancing aviation as well as our modern day pilots and aviation specialists.

August 19th was chosen for National Aviation Day because it represents the birthday of aviation pioneer, Orville Wright. While the Wright brothers were not the first to fly or build an airplane, they are the most famous. They were the first to create a fixed wing airplane with controls. Their first flight in this aircraft with controls was only 12 seconds and a whopping 120 feet in distance; however, it was god enough to count!

This day of observation is a great time for aviation museums, aircraft manufacturers, aircraft parts retailers, aviation organizations, flight schools, and other aviation-related businesses to heavily promote the advanced technologies that originated from our forefathers of flight. However, President Franklin D. Roosevelt not only wanted aviation-related businesses and organizations to promote this day, but also all Americans with an interest in flight to host aviation-related activities.

National Aviation Day Ideas

  • Hold an open house for your aviation museum.
  • Offer free food and drinks for your visitors on National Aviation Day.
  • Promote sales and discounts for this day.
  • Host a photo booth with a vintage airplane scene in the background and have vintage pilot gear for your visitors to wear in the photo and post on your social media.
  • Post historical facts about aviation on your blog and social media pages
  • Give out airplane promotional items promoting National Aviation Day.
  • Have your school class take a field trip to an airport so the kids can watch airplanes take off and land (from a distance, of course).
  • Host a paper airplane contest and reward those who can fly their airplane the furthest with prizes.
  • Have an aviation trivia contest and award the top participants with rewards.
  • Airlines can offer substantial discounts to fly on National Aviation Day (we are really pushing for this one!)
