These School Spirit Ideas are Everything but Spooky!

Persnickety Promotions wants to get everybody talking with apparel ideas

As the school year continues to march on, so does the need for some school spirit in the winter months. Apparel is the one of the best ways to get your group viewed by many and look great doing so. Allow us to show some successful projects to spark ideas of your own.


We start off strong with the 100+ shirts we printed in-house for a local marathon. For this project, we were asked to screen print the front and backs of tees. With red and white being the school colors it only made sense to print as such, whites t-shirts with red ink. The front of the tee is a design the church gave for us to use while the back compilation was ultimately up to us. When dealing with a multitude of different images, it’s important to give a pleasing look while displaying all sponsors correctly. Our shirts were then printed with the utmost care, scrutinizing each shirts position and ink quality (with maybe a few having to be done again). This is again a great way for a team, group, or organization to look unified and professional.


Another project we completed for the school were custom pencils. This red pencil with white text combo is meant to represent the school with a matching white eraser. But it’s no fun to go “super simple” so we spiced it up with some shimmer. The picture may not catch all the shine this pencil has but it certainly draws attention (not to mention that red is always a great color as a attraction getter) With everything and almost everyone going online, having your website or email when selecting what to put on smaller surfaces is always the best way to go. Using everyday items as outlets can go a long way when promoting a brand or company.

School spirit resides in us all and when creating apparel we try to imagine what we would want to wear. In addition to our screen printing ability, we can also do full color digital printing, rhinestone apparel, vinyl, and even more in the future.

Our past project shows a combination of a digitally printed front and vinyl printed back to create field trip shirts the kids can’t stop wearing. This was done on a scale of 650+ t-shirts, one of our largest printed projects (so far). For a smaller group of 10 or so tees, moms showed their love for their kids’ school team with a little rhinestone glam thanks to our jewel printer. We pride ourselves in saying that we have no minimum quantity when you order our in-house services. We can’t wait to create some clothing for you!

A Grand Entrance for a Grand Opening

Persnickety Promotions helps you put your best look forward

A couple weeks ago, Persnickety Promotions attended a fantastic Grand Opening celebration for our client, La Petite Salon, in Carmel, New York. With the owner Lia’s visions, and Denise’s skill and attention to detail, they created a fun AND functional “swag bag” to get the crowds talking about this new hair salon.


When starting a project, we always look at the key elements in a company (i.e. a logo, specific colors or slogan). The salon has a woman’s face as their logo with the words “La Petite Salon” so we knew it was important to have these elements appear wherever possible to make this project a whole.


Starting with the hairbrushes, our client opted for their name and number only to appear on the back, rather than the image for the fear of it being too busy. The hairbrush itself is hot pink, calling upon the pinks found in the woman’s face and hair to create both contrast and unity. Although small in size, this hairbrush has a comfortable smooth handle just the right size for anyone to use without the struggle of letting go.img_5416

The hair tie, also hot pink, is an elastic ribbon with a width that allowed us to screen print on. By putting the company name, it gives a full view to those who may just get a quick glance of the hairband but still gets the name across. This is a more elegant version of the “usual” thin elastic hair tie but has a stretchy-ness to it and will not unknot itself.


Our third piece is a front and back screenprinted t-shirt we did in-house for our client. These shirts were part of the salon’s giveaway to further promote their brand. With the salon name on the front chest, the logo and the phone number were placed on the back for a full size view. To wrap it all up together is the tote itself. It’s sturdy nature and small shape makes it perfect to fit all the goodies inside.

That about concludes our time for this post. See something you like? Feel free to contact us today!
