For fans of every sport imaginable, we’ve put together a list of must have promotional products to cheer your team to victory!! Check them out below:
1. Banners – Every team needs a custom printed banner that can travel with them! Banners made of premium UV resistant vinyl are ideal for both indoor and outdoor sports and can easily be rolled up and transported to the next game. Decorate your banner with an image of your team mascot or emblem.
Use your school colors and school name, i.e. Windsor School Wildcats. Have your athletic organization or school hold a contest for the best banner design as a way to get the fans excited about the upcoming season.
2. Car Magnets – Let’s face it, no one not even the most dedicated soccer mom wants to put a bumper sticker on her car anymore. Luckily for us there are car magnets that share the same function without wrecking your car’s finish. Design car magnets of varying sizes, one to put on your vehicle and another to place on a refrigerator or office filing cabinet.
Car magnets are relatively inexpensive and offer fantastic fundraising opportunities. Sell them at games as well as in your school store.
3. Yard signs – No longer just a tool for politicians, yard signs are the latest way of displaying your team loyalty to the masses. Place yard signs on your front lawn or strategically position them around your home field. Yet another great promotional fundraising tool for your athletic department.

5. T shirts – Parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, you name it everyone wants to support their kids! Custom printed t shirts allow family members and friends to promote their athletic league at all times. Design one of a kind t shirts to be sold at fundraising rallies, games and the school store.
Custom t shirts allow sports teams the option of printing an emblem on the front and a large team image or graphic on the back. If your team is the champion of their division, you may want to include “2013 Tri-State Basketball Champions”.
6. Buttons – Need a promotional tool that has mass appeal? Create unique buttons for your athletic team. Once again using your team emblem or an image of your mascot, you are like a walking billboard for your favorite team.
Buttons can be purchased as traditional pinback or for more fundraising opportunities, they can also be made as button mirrors, magnets, coasters or keyrings. A little something for everyone!
