While this year’s back to school may look a bit different than previous years, some things never change. 2021 has again been a whirlwind year yet again and students have been learning online for the majority of the past year and a half at home. They are excited to be back in the classroom, as are teachers (and parents of course!).
After having been out of the classroom for so long, students and teachers are looking forward to getting back to some tangible learning experiences. Print solutions for back to school (and back to business) are plentiful and varied, so dive in because we have something here for everyone!
Back to School Essential Printing
Back to school supplies for schools often include planners for each student. Planners are perfect for students and teachers alike! Day planners teach students the importance of planning ahead and keeping track of their homework as well as personal schedules. Planners can also be a perfect place to reinforce school rules, values, and a calendar of events. Plus, they are individualized so every student has their own and doesn’t need to share. Custom teacher planners are great for the same reasons! If you’re a school administrator, giving your staff their own planners can help them plan out their year, remind them when events are taking place, and allow them to catch up on changing protocols specific to the school.
Newsletters are also a large part of back to school and are often used to keep parents informed of school events, special days, and of course now Covid-19 protocols and information. Parents want to be more informed than ever, and newsletters can be sent home on a monthly, or even weekly or bi-weekly basis to keep the community informed of news at the school concerning their child’s safety.
If you are a teacher and teaching multiple sections of the same class, you may have handouts to give students to get them back into tangible learning. Why not print these on a mass scale if you’ll be reusing them for many students? We can help with this too while you’re continuing your back to school shopping!
Back to Business in the Corporate World
While September means back to school for the kids, it also means back to business for parents! Especially this year when parents have been home with their kids either homeschooling or helping them with online learning, going back to work is going to be a change of pace for many as offices also begin to open up. Corporate print solutions will be needed for this new working world.
Large offices will of course have Covid protocols for meeting rooms, offices, elevators, etc. Printing signage will be a big part of getting back to office and keeping everyone safe. Newsletters may also be a great idea for office culture to inform everyone of ongoing changes to protocols. Sign-in sheets may also be a part of office culture moving forward to track who is coming in and when each day.
The corporate world has also been online only for the past couple of years and your clients and customers may appreciate handouts and presentation decks in tangible formats. If your customers are physically far, consider sending thank you cards and mailers to show them gratitude for sticking with you during the past couple of years. People appreciate personalized cards and gifts from businesses who appreciate them.
