Schools, Colleges and Universities
Schools, colleges and universities use coasters, calendar coasters, glass paperweights, crystal paperweights, plaques, identity badges and aluminium labels for different events as well as many other purposes. We are always surprised at the ingenuity shown by teaching staff and pupils in using SNA products…anything from fundraising to general souvenirs and mementos. So here's a brief run down on some possibilities that may interest your own establishment. You can also other examples of SNA products suitable for schools, colleges and universities in the photo gallery.
Identity badges in full colour
Individually designed and colourful ID badges are an integral part of a company image and there is no reason why schools, colleges and universities should be any different when there is a requirement for a school personalized identity badge.
Old fashioned engraved single colour identity badges are a relic of a bygone age…an age before the availability of sophisticated digital printing. Now all identity badges can be in full colour, for colour is an absolute must in the 21st century. And it costs no more to invest in a full colour identity badge than settle for anything less.
You can have a permanent identity badge with name and title; a reusable identity label badge or a window badge with interchangeable name inserts and all to your own design without any colour or typestyle restrictions.
Aluminium coasters in full colour
Aluminium coasters have proved to be an excellent fundraising product whether sold in singles or boxed gift sets of four or six. And other schools use them as promotional gifts for visitors, achievement awards or as promotional gift coasters on exchange trips.
You can choose your finish from metallic, iridescent or an enamelled effect and be sure that the finished aluminium coaster will have a colourful and imaginative design and be a truly spectacular school advertising gift…but the design is up to you; a simple one colour reunion souvenir aluminium coaster or perhaps a stunning creation from the art class; the choice is yours.
But like everything else it helps if you come up with a good colourful design...extra colours do not incur additional costs on SNA aluminium coasters.
Calendar coasters are a superb saleable item and can be used in many different ways; and it doesn't have to start on the 1st January either. Start the calendar coaster when you want and incorporate any school data such as holidays, sports days, exam dates or whatever takes your fancy. The impact of a calendar coaster is all in the design so here is worthwhile project for any part of the school.
Glass paperweights & crystal paperweights
Round glass paperweights are one of our most popular school gifts and often used for an anniversary, special event, achievement award or as part of a fundraising drive.
Available as a 70mm round glass paperweight are a 90mm glass paperweight they are an eye-catching and acceptable souvenir and memento of a special occasion.
However, for an extra special event a crystal paperweight with an encapsulated full colour image will certainly raise a few eyebrows…and here again the choice of image is up to the school art specialists for a quality design can add immeasureably to the presentation of a crystal paperweight.
Presentation plaques are often used as achievement awards within a school for virtually any activity with the scholastic environment. However, some of the more innovative uses of presentation plaques are as autographed souvenirs for school reunions or, at the other end of the age spectrum, leaving mementos and the break-up of sports teams or other special interest groups.
Another innovative use for a presentation wall plaque is a project to discover the derivation of a particular first name or, rather more adventurously, the root source of a surname. The ensuing results when reproduced on a wall plaque create a handsome keepsake.
Desk nameplates are made in any colour combination with the name, title and motif in replaceable or permanent versions. There is an enormous variety of typestyles to choose from so that so that all desk nameplates can be unique and colourful as well as informative.
The slide-in desk name plates are made in silver or gold anodized aluminium. Also manufactured is a series of executive desk nameplates in prestigious real wood. This style is permanent with a custom nameplate attached to the wood although we do make a grooved wooden name plate holder so that the name plates are exchangeable.
Many schools will find a use for long lasting aluminium labels to confirm ownership of many pieces of equipment; each label can be sequentially numbered and produced in any number of colours.
