7 Top Fresher’s Fair Promotional Product Ideas

What are two things that go hand in hand?

Students and freebies!

University students are known for not having a lot of money and are always after a bargain or a freebie. This is why freshers fairs are so popular and busy!

Freshers fairs are the ideal opportunity to get your brand seen and remembered throughout the academic year.

A good way to capture a new audience with students is to put together a student friendly information pack by filling a printed cotton bag with goodies, all printed with your company details.

This is probably the first time students have lived away from home, so practical gifts will be well received – bottle openers, mugs, pens, mobile accessories etc.  Read on for our top 7 fresher’s fair promotional product ideas:
