Designing a Conference or Championship Banner for Your School

Short of renting a billboard on the side of the highway (and kudos to your school if you’ve actually done that), there’s no more obvious statement of school spirit than a banner. Whether it’s a gym banner only visible to a few or a championship banner visible to many, a custom banner’s dazzling presence and massive scale is sure to catch the eye and inspire.

Why Stair Graphics Matter in the Implementation of Your School Brand

Stairs: everyone loves to hate them. We all know, though, despite our constant griping about climbing them, that they serve an important purpose logistically. Did you know that they serve an important purpose in your school branding, too? We’re not talking about the stairs themselves—it’d be a little hard to build a staircase in the shape of your school’s mascot!—but about what you put on the stairs. No, not anti-slip footing: we’re referring to stair graphics.

Why is the School Branding Process so Confusing?

You thought it would be simple: draw up a mascot, pick a couple of colors, order some gym wall mats, and boom, you’ve just accomplished some serious school branding. Now, though, you’re lost in style guides, caught between color combinations (what are complementary colors anyway?), and your logo designs look like they’ve been made by a marker-happy six-year-old. Why on Earth is rebranding a school so darn complicated?

Why Originality Matters When it Comes to Rebranding a School

School branding is the process of coming up with the face of your school—the image that the passerby calls to mind when laying eyes on your facility. It’s so much more than a mascot or some pretty gym wall padding, though those are two facets that may play a role in it; it’s crafting the very personality of your school as a whole.

What Makes a Great School Mascot?

Whether it’s because of cringe-worthy costumes or the pride they inspired, all of us remember our childhood’s district’s mascot. Perhaps that speaks to their power and role in an inspiring school branding idea. A mascot will unite your student body in one way or the other, that’s for sure, be it through the good vibes they inspire about your school or through becoming a collective laughingstock.

Using Your School's Brand to Boost Spirit During Distance Learning

While some schools have resumed in-person teaching, for the time being, others are taking a more digital route. Digital learning may be a great way to minimize risk and allow students to take care of themselves during this difficult time, but it also poses its own problems: namely, loneliness. Being stuck in isolation, away from peer groups, certainly doesn’t do a child well in this respect, and it certainly doesn’t do much to make them feel like the part of the tight-knit community that thrives within your school.

Does Your Gym Need Wall Padding? How to Assess Your Facility’s Needs

Many educators would agree that extracurricular sports are just as valuable as a school's academic curriculum when it comes to creating well-rounded students. There are certain things a young person learns on the field that they won’t learn in the classroom, and vice versa. It’s for this very reason that your school should also be devoted to protecting student athletes with wall mats and gym wall padding. Athletes need to feel safe in order to play at their best, and they also need to come off the court uninjured and ready to attend class the next day.

All About Bleacher Safety Curtains and How They Can Enhance Your Facility

Nearly every school has them, even though they come with inherent safety risks. We’re talking about bleachers. With their tiered rows, metal edges, and industrial appearance, bleachers can be both a safety concern and an eyesore in contrast to school gymnasiums decked out in logos and similar school-spirit-boosting attire. Perhaps that’s why many of us don’t remember our school’s bleachers all-too-fondly – if you remember them at all. If you do remember them fondly, it’s probably because you used to break the rules and play underneath them during recess or sporting events, which hopefully never resulted in any nasty injuries.
