How To Make Senior Night Unforgettable

Posted by Stumps Spirit on March 21, 2013

Sports Water BottlesPersonalized Photo BannersThe final year of high school is rich with memories. We’ve got some outstanding examples of how you can make Senior Sports Night memorable for the class of 2013.

Welcome the seniors and their families with Personalized Vertical Banners showing pictures of your school’s athletes in action.  Create a life size stand up from a picture of their freshman year or a giant 3-foot Big Head Cutout of their face for friends and family to wave when they are being honored.

You will also want to include a goodie bag filled with both fun and keepsake items such as personalized water bottles, key chains with the team photos. Personalized items create a memorable token for your seniors.  Let your imagination run wild with Do It Yourself treat bags that you can fill with either candy or healthy snacks. Or both! Make Senior Night for the class of 2013 one that they’ll be talking about in 2023 at their 10-year reunion!

Decorate for Your School’s Own March Madness

Posted by Stumps Spirit on March 12, 2013

While the History Channel claims that March Madness was born 74 years ago with the “first-ever NNCAA men’s basketball tournament,” high school teams everywhere know that small town school spirit has played an important role for decades. The squeak of basketball shoes on gymnasium floors, roaring crowds, and the swish of basketballs bouncing off the backboard and falling down to bounce on the shiny floor, while the audience holds its collective breath for just one second, a second when time stops, before erupting into screams of delight while their favorite players rush back up the court, dripping with sweat and motivation…This is March Madness, and it is catching once more.

Illinois and Indiana both claim to have started March Madness with high school basketball playoffs, but whether you’re playing in the Midwest or coast-to-coast, school spirit has an insatiable thirst this month. Give in to the enthusiasm and make sure your players and biggest fans have enough to drink with durable polycarbonate or plastic water bottles personalized with your school’s name, the year, certain player’s names, or even just “March Madness!” You could toss these out during basketball games to get the crowd even more pumped up, or sell them as part of a sports fundraiser.

Next, advertise your school spirit with banners for pep rallies, star players, and all the big games that are happening this month. Weave your school colors through fencing and around the hallways using gossamer or even durable, flame-resistant poly vinyl. Nothing is more exciting than walking into your high school or college gymnasium to find huge signs promoting the team and the starting players surrounding by bright streams of school colors.

Speaking of color, you can use lots of it to spruce up the hallway in your high school with affordable graphic banners that are designed for lockers.  Personalize them to match your school colors as well as with names. These can be used for all your superstars, too; marching band, the yearbook, or even just that special person in your life that needs a little bit of motivation as the end of the school year looms, but is still very far away.

Finally, be sure and surprise boys and girls, women and men’s basketball superstars with Big Heads; use them in the crowd or attach them along the walls or fencing with their number and cheer them on throughout March Madness and for the year to come. Remind them who their biggest fans are and frighten the opposition with your school spirit, to boot!

Beyond Markers- Creative Banner Possibilities

Posted by Stumps Spirit on April 8, 2011

Raise the level of creativity and energy at your sporting event with banners of various styles. Personalized banners are a great way to show your team support and team spirit. Hang banners around the school gym, the cheerleading squad can hold up banners, and fans in the stands can display them also. Sports banners are perfect at a sports banquet or hanging in the coach’s office.

Sports Banners
Choose from a variety of sports banners that you can personalize with your school and/or team information. There are several horizontal and vertical banners to fit your sports decorating needs. Sports banners are easy to transport so you can bring a sports banner to hang by the visiting team bleachers to help identify the seating, and give a boost to your fans team spirit.

Make a banner for each member of the team using the create-a-bana and banner paints. These banners are affordable and you can design anything on them that you can paint, write, or draw. A convenient feature of the create-a-bana is that it is retractable. This makes it easy to take along to away games and pull out the banner when it is needed. The banner paint cleans up nicely with soap and water, and the paint is non-toxic. Get the paint set that comes with eight colors (blue, orange, brown, purple, black, red, green, and yellow) and has a 3 inch color-coded brush that fits into the lid. The deluxe kit includes a 1 inch brush and a 2 inch brush for each color in addition to the set of 8 paints with the 3 inch brushes. Another great paint option is glow in the dark paint which comes in yellow.

Let your team see your support as well as hear it by having different kinds of banners to cheer them on when the game is on the line and they need a little pick me up.
