There’s no getting away from the fact that teachers work hard and deserve recognition for encouraging nurturing our children. World Teachers’ Day, held annually on 5th October since 1994, celebrates all educators around the globe, recognizing their contribution to the lives of our children in ensuring they have the tools they need to take responsibility for themselves and others, plus the planet, in their adulthood. The day also reflects on the support teachers need to fully deploy their talent and vocation and is a chance to focus on rethinking the way ahead for the teaching profession, globally.
From a marketing perspective, World Teachers Day is a great time to also turn your focus towards promoting your educational establishment (or related business, event, or campaign) with some customized merchandise.
For example, stationery which has been printed with the name of your school or college along with the motivational motto is a great way to get your message out there and remind people of what it is that you are delivering. Similarly, you could be the organizer of some sort of educational conference or school fundraiser – and kind of event, in fact – and you will find that the benefits of merchandizing using personalized items for events can really help generate interest, or support.
You could opt for custom pens and pencils. Logo printed stationery such as notebooks and folders, or even printed hoodies. The fact is, there are many different sorts of stationery product which could prove suitable for your school or college (or other education-related business), and we’ll run through some of our favorites here.
