Custom stickers have a wide range of uses because of their perceived value. People just love stickers, whether they display them on their personal belongings or collect them. In many ways, they allow us to let our inner kids out to play without seeming too childish to those around us.
And that’s exactly why colleges and universities can use custom stickers to raise morale and encourage students to support their school, their athletic and sports teams, and much more. They also have a number of practical uses, which make them an even more effective tool for any school.
Read on to discover a few ways in which your college or university can use custom stickers.
Support the Team
Custom stickers are a great way students can show their support for your school’s teams. Whether it’s the football team, the basketball team or the swim team, you can get some really nice stickers printed and hand them out to students so they can show their support.
After all, every fan wants a way to show their love for their team, and stickers are a great way to do that. Anything from die-cut stickers to sticker sheets will work.
In fact, you can do both. Get sticker sheets printed that feature all your sports teams and athletes for those students who want to support all their school’s athletes. Then print individual die-cut stickers for the same teams and athletes for those students who are more passionate about a particular sport.
Regardless of your choice, custom stickers make a great option for you to engage students in your school’s sports and athletic events, while also enabling them to show their support.
As we said, custom stickers also have practical uses, and one of those is for student and faculty parking permits. Loose permits can get lost and, with time, can fade. Especially if you get a lot sun in your area.
Quality stickers, though, can be attached to windshields, which makes losing them a lot more difficult. In fact, it will take someone losing their car to lose their parking permit, and in that case, the permit really doesn’t matter all that much anymore.
Plus, custom stickers are UV resistant, which means it will be a long, long time before they fade. In fact, your students will graduate long before that happens.
Though our world is very digital and you likely send announcements out via email or your school’s intranet, you also probably put up printed announcements. After all, you have to make sure no one has an excuse to say they didn’t know, especially when it comes to events.
Custom stickers are a great way to make these special announcements and promote any events. You can hand them out to the student body, or display them around the school.
Support the School
Custom stickers are also a great way to enable your students to show their support for their school. After all, everyone is proud of the institution they attend and they should be allowed to show it.
And there’s no better way to do that than with some awesome stickers. Not only can they display them on their personal belongings, but they can also keep them as mementos.
It’s a lot of fun looking back and remembering all the amazing moments you experienced in college and university. And stickers are a great keepsake to allow your students to do just that in the future, once they’ve graduated and are out in the real world.
Inspire Your Students
Stickers can also be great inspirational tools. Get a bunch printed with various inspirational messages, along with your school’s name and logo. You’ll inspire students, raise morale, and really show that you care about them, and will help you build a true community.
Furthermore, stickers with inspirational messages also help to spark everything from creativity to critical thinking. So, if you really want to have some of the best students around, then make sure you take advantage of stickers with inspirational quotes on them.
Promote the School
A great way to promote your school and attract more students is by using custom stickers. Students often get stuck on a few ideas in regards to what they consider acceptable colleges, which can make it challenging to garner their interest if your institution is not on the “short list.”
So, to get these students interested, you need to take a more creative approach than the usual posters and mugs. In fact, you have to get a bit more creative and stickers are the perfect way to do that.
Instead of just printing stickers with your college’s name on them, add funny but inspirational quotes, for example. Others will be more likely to remember the name of your college if they loved the message on the sticker so much, they stuck it on their laptop.
You can even print series of stickers and get kids interested by offering a prize to anyone who collects the whole set. It doesn’t have to be anything significant – it can even be another sticker, though it probably has to be a much more awesome sticker to make it worth it. The key is that by getting the kids involved and interacting with your institution’s brand, they are more likely to want to know more.
Plus, taking this “fun” approach will make you more interesting to kids because it shows that your institution is creative and isn’t afraid of out-of-the-box thinking.
Custom stickers have a wide range of applications. Whether you are looking to boost morale, inspire loyalty, or just give students a fun way to support their team and/or school, custom stickers are the way to go.
Besides being cost-effective, they allow for a lot of creative freedom, which makes them even more valuable. After all, the sky really is the limit when it comes to how colleges and universities can use stickers for their students. All you have to do is think a little outside of the box for maximum impact.
