Education and School Printing Essentials: The Complete Checklist

« Back to Previous

Digital marketing has become the primary method to get a message out. It’s cost-efficient, can reach large audiences instantly and can be easily edited. Young people may live on their cell phones and the internet, but how can you communicate with them in schools, where they’re discouraged from interacting on social media?

Even with all the advances in technology, traditional school printing remains the most powerful channel to connect with students. Because school communications tend to exclude anyone outside the local community, limiting your messages to the student body makes sense. No matter how much time goes by, catching students attention with media posted on walls and distributed by teachers will never go away.

Admin, teachers, and student organizations have tons of uses for print material. What kinds of materials should you incorporate into your school printing?

Educational Posters for Events

Is your school hosting a cheer competition, spelling bee, or promoting the upcoming 6th grade field trip? Posters are the perfect tool to spread the word of any coming events. You can easily distribute them, hang them on hallways walls, and include them in every classroom. Colored posters are great for images to add a pop and attract more eyes.

Branded School Folders

Branded folders are excellent to draw top talent to any type of school. Place your promotional material in a folder for parents and students to take back home with them. Not only do they give your school a professional look, but they serve as a reminder long after visitors have left your school. Private schools, language institutes, ballet schools, and adult training centers can improve student acquisition with customized folders.

What should you put inside? Continue to build off your profession image by filling folders with notepads, postcards, and professional business cards.

Newsletters

Does your school already have newsletters in its school printing toolkit? Newsletters quickly and efficiently spread current updates across an entire school. Even printing off a few copies per classroom transmits the same information for a lesser cost. Advertise fundraisers, upcoming events, competition results, and student spotlights for the whole school to read.

Promotional Flyers for Sporting Events, Theater Performances and Festivals

Leaflets or promotional flyers are an excellent take-home equivalent to posters. You have the ability to include captivating graphics with text conveying event details. Schools can also use flyers to invite local community members to school events open to the public. Selling carnival tickets to fund raise for the football team? Students can distribute flyers to neighbors and family to spread the word.

Theater, Sports, and Graduation Programs

Play attendees need programs to outline the performance and highlight the actors and stage crew. Musical performances, sport tournaments, and graduations are other events that typically come with a printed program to take home. While students may not give these a second thought, parents and relatives love having simple mementos to fondly pass around decades later.
