Back to School 2017 – The Best Picks for Elementary through High School Students


It’s almost that time of year again- the time that’s usually welcomed by parents and cringed at by kids: Back to School! Back to school is a perfect opportunity for businesses and educational institutes to gain impressions from students, parents, and teachers. While many students dread the idea of putting the pool toys away and heading back to school, you can help make it more fun by giving away useable, fun, and trendy products that students will love!

Brand Aid wants your first day back to school to go smoothly. So, we have complied a list of our favorite school supply picks for the 2017-18 school year.

Types of School Supplies: 

  • Backpack
  • Notebook
  • Lunchbox
  • Pens & Pencils
  • Eraser
  • Plastic Folders
  • Pencil Pouch
  • Laptop Case


Why School Supplies?

They’re usable:

Consumers want products that are first and foremost, usable. According to PPAI, the education industry is the top buyer of promotional products. Why? Because people use it. Everybody needs school supplies – backpacks, notebooks, writing utensils – you can’t show up to school empty handed! Back-to-school supplies give your brand maximum exposure by supplying students with something that they will use everyday.   Just think about how many times students ask to borrow a pen or pencil… Every time your branded promo is passed along, it gains a new impression!


Trendy will catch attention:

On the first day back to school, every kid wants to have the COOLEST swag. Most kids these days feel the pressure to show up on the first day with brand-spankin-new gear. So, make it easy on parents and suit kids up with school supplies that will make them look good while drawing indirect attention to your brand. If your product is cool and trendy, it will be a wanted item. Simply put, kids want what others have. So, don’t let the opportunity of gaining impressions slip you by. Teachers, students, and parents will appreciate the gesture while simultaneously advertising your business each time they use your promos. Let Brand Aid help make the kids happy, it’s what we love to do.
