School Spirit: Five Branded Merch Items Students Will Cheer About

Published: 7/1/2022 Author: Corporate Specialties


“Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho”- it's off to school we go! Having the right branded merch for your school, college, university, club, organization or team doesn’t have to be a fairy tale. From the sorority or fraternity house to the dorm, from the pre-game festivities either on campus or at home, we’re making it easy to start the new school year with the right gear.

To help you get outfitted, we have hand-selected five best-sellers that show school spirit and give students the gear for cheering on the home team and dressing to impress on campus. Class is in session…now.

School Spirit Fanny Pack


The Fanny Pack is back, trending and better than ever. This recycled canvas School Spirit Fanny Pack is the most customizable fanny pack in promo. With full color printing over the entire bag and the option for retail-style printed lining, this functional fanny pack can be customized to fit any occasion and any style. 

Choose among 10 mix-and-match colors for the strap, buckle and zipper—that’s 1,000 color combinations! The high-quality RPET canvas, made with up to six water bottles’ worth of recycled plastic, means you get to go green while sporting one of the latest retail trends and showcasing your school colors.

To get your team, club or organization outfitted with the School Spirit Fanny Pack, contact us here for more information.

School Spirit Drawstring Bags Gift Set


From the cheer squad to the debate team and everything in between, the School Spirit Drawstring Bag Gift Set makes a great gift for everyone from middle schoolers to undergrads.

This spirited package starts with a Sticky Wallet, an adhesive-backed sleeve that securely holds up to three credit cards and conveniently sticks to the back of a cell phone. With up to three Pantone-matched colors for the imprint and a Pantone-matched silicone base included, the Sticky Wallet keeps everything together while showcasing school colors. Just add custom insert cards or custom packaging for even more branding opportunities.

Next, the set includes a Scrunchie with full-color, full-bleed printing to really let school spirit shine. Comfortable enough for all-day wear as a hair tie or bracelet, this must-have accessory can also include a woven tag and full-color packaging for a trendy, retail look.

Finally, the sporty Drawstring Bag holds the set together. Made from high-quality polyester, it can be four-color-process printed with almost any design desired—patterns, solid colors or even a photograph. Add Pantone-matched strings, a full-color hang tag or a different design on the second side to complete your custom design.

Badger Performance Camo Tee


Most didn’t see the camouflage trend coming (dad joke!), but it’s one of the hottest looks you’ll see around campus. 

Offered in 14 camo color options as well as both youth and adult sizes, the Badger Performance Camo Tee is constructed from 100% sublimated polyester moisture management/antimicrobial fabric with a double needle hem and a self fabric collar for maximum comfort. Just add your logo, team names or individual names on the front or back (or both!) to stealthily outfit your team so they can be seen on the scene 

No need to hide your desire to have your team cloaked with an on-trend shirt everyone is sure to notice. Contact us here to uncover all the details.

Soft Enamel Lapel Pins


Lapel pins. They’re great collectibles for accessorizing hats, jean jackets or backpacks. And they’re great for trading. Just ask Shaun White. 

If you want merch with nearly unlimited customization options, say hello to these Soft Enamel Lapel Pins. Made with raised nickel (silver) plating to be strong and durable, these pins are engraved and color filled with up to four colors, and they come complete with a butterfly clutch pin on the back for easy wearing. 

Available in a variety of standard sizes as well as custom shapes (anywhere from ½” to 2” in size), these pins also have a variety of different colored plating options to fit your brand standards including brass, zinc alloy, polished silver, polished gold and epoxy dome. 

Design them with a subtle, dignified elegance or create attention-getting statement pieces. Either way, if you want others to ask where they got their school, club, organization or team pin and how they can get one too, contact us here to place your order.

Knit Scarf & Beanie


Whether headed to the game on a chilly fall day or need to stay warm walking across campus in the winter, students of all ages love Knit Scarves and Beanies. These Made in USA scarves and beanies are custom knit in up to four yarn colors and can be embroidered for that high-end retail feel. The scarf is 60” long and the cuffed cap can be made with or without a pom.

Look Smart And Feel Great In School Spirit Branded Merch

Many of our greatest memories are from the personal friendships and associations made at school—from attending favorite classes, participating in clubs or sports, and enjoying all the social opportunities during this pivotal time in life.  

Branded merch brings students together and gives them a sense of community. And this feeling lasts long after graduation. Just ask alumni who still have a collection of t-shirts, caps and koozies. (That’s us!) 

It’s also a fun—and often necessary—accoutrement to being a part of a team and showing school spirit. So Magic Mirror on the wall, which of the featured items above is the fairest of them all? Oh, they all are! The only thing missing is your organization’s logo.
