Spirit Wear For Elementary Schools

If you have been put in charge of your spirit wear for elementary schools program, you are probably freaking out a little.  Maybe you were in a meeting and you accidentally raised your hand to ask a question and they put you in charge of spirit wear for elementary schools, or worse, maybe you weren't at the meeting and you were assigned the task!  LOL.

Regardless, the responsibility is now yours, so what's next? 

Spirit Wear For Elementary Schools

Here is advice that we learned the hard way on how to make your spirit wear for elementary schools program a success.

1.  Don't offer your parents/students more than a handful of items.  4-5 items at the most is plenty.  What happens if you offer more items, is that parents/students can't decide what to do and the end up buying less or nothing and that hurts your fundraising efforts.

2.  When setting up spirit wear for elementary school programs, NEVER offer more than one of the same item type.  For example, if you are selling a T-Shirt, only have 1 T-Shirt design.  Don't offer it in Red, Green, Blue etc ... don't have 2-3 designs that they can pick from, don't offer versions where the logo is big and versions where the logo is small.  Offer just 1 T-Shirt.  Offer just 1 Sweat Shirt.  When you "version" your items, people buy less.  If you only have one choice, that's what they have to buy if they want anything.

3.  Create a paper order form to hand out and take orders, or launch a free online store.  We recommend the online store option, because it puts the responsibility for accuracy and deadline meeting in the hands of your parents/students.  As the coordinating volunteer of your spirit wear for elementary schools program, if you go with a paper order form option, all of the responsibility is in your hands.  Even change orders, cancellations, additions, late order form "hander inners" you don't need that stress.  Go with a free online store for your program.

4.  If you get everything in bulk when it's done being printed, don't hand anything out to anyone until you've counted and separated everything yourself.  There will be parents/students that see you walking in with boxes and bags full of cool stuff, don't let them take anything from you until you've inventoried it.  If you let anyone touch the order, you'll end up missing sizes that you thought that you ordered.  Think about it, if someone ordered a small, but took a medium and it fits them.  They are not going to return it.  So now the person that actually ordered that medium, is stuck with their small that doesn't fit.  It's a logistics issue.  Keep hold of the whole order, count it, bag it by person, or better yet, pay your contract screen printer to bag it, and then hand it out.

5.  Keep your design simple and practical so that when your spirit wear for elementary schools program is a success, you can easily replicate your design on other promotional items like pens, bags, notebooks etc ...
