“By working with Lightning Labels, schools will be able to focus on mission-critical tasks while letting a professional take care of their label and sticker printing needs, said Julie Waldrop, Production Manager at Lightning Labels.”

With "back to school" season only a few months away, customized stickers can be an effective way for schools at all levels to prepare for the upcoming school year. Whether universities want to spread school spirit by affixing their logos to various items students and parents will purchase or if they use stickers to manage various assets, stickers are a must for educational institutions preparing for the new year.

Of course, schools aren't the only ones selling back to school merchandise. Other businesses, such as retail outlets, could also capitalize on this time period with limited-edition products designed specifically for students returning to school.

"Back to school season can be hectic for many organizations as they look to greet returning students and welcome new ones," said Julie Waldrop, Production Manager at Lightning Labels. "By working with a reliable and experienced label and sticker printing company such as Lightning Labels, schools will be able to focus on mission-critical tasks while letting a professional take care of their label and sticker printing needs."

School Stickers for Promotional Purposes
Students often have a tremendous amount of pride in the school they attend, particularly in regard to high school and college. School stickers can be attached to various products and sold to students to drive extra revenue while simultaneously promoting the school's brand.

Items such as bumper stickers are incredibly popular, particularly among parents, to boast to the world where their children goes to school. Stickers and labels can also be used elsewhere - on generic food product packaging and drink bottles, folders, binders, key chains, writing utensils, window stickers and much more. The only limit is the imagination of the school.

Moreover, labels and stickers can be crafted in all sorts of shapes and sizes with a variety of materials to improve durability and visibility. It doesn't matter if schools want to put a sticker on a product designed for rugged outdoor use or for a small pen - there is a sticker or label that can fit whatever needs universities have.

Custom School Labels Help Universities Get Organized
Aside from promotional purposes, custom school labels can be used for a broad number of internal, organizational functions.

The most common use of stickers in this way is for parking permits and passes. Schools can purchase sequentially numbered stickers for people who purchase parking passes, which can then be placed on vehicles in monitored parking zones. These stickers can be designed for easy, damage-free removal to ensure people don't have to worry about marking up their vehicle when they renew their permits.

Schools could also use numbered stickers for asset management. If they have limited quantities of expensive equipment, such as tablet devices or radio units, they can attach numbered stickers to them. Staff can then easily sign these devices in and out as they use them, promoting accountability for the use of equipment.

Back to school season is fast approaching. Whether organizations want to drive more revenue through promotional products or simply want to improve accountability, stickers and labels can be a vital asset in that regard.
