Making 2021 Graduations Memorable

By Chris Ocampo


The pandemic has altered this past school year for all students and families, but here is how you can put your equipment and creativity to work in helping families celebrate this special occasion.

In a year with so much disruption, graduating students continued to excel. This year’s Class of 2021 will be remembered as a resilient group of students. Together with educators and parents, they overcame a challenging year of mixed online, hybrid, and in-person learning. The graduates, along with their support system, should be celebrated for reaching an important milestone during this trying time

This is where you come in. No matter what personalization equipment you have, there are many ways you can provide unforgettable products that will bring in sales. Here are product ideas and ways you can promote them to your customers:

Graduation Product Ideas

  • Personalized backdrops for Zoom graduation celebrations
  • Class of 2021 yard signs
  • A laptop picture frame for all those times they were participating in online classes
  • Custom Class of 2021 T-shirts and apparel
  • Stickers and/or adhesives they can use to decorate their caps or laptops

Using Social Media

  • Post your products using 2021 graduation hashtags, such as #Classof2021 #Graduation and #Commencement, to gain more exposure for your business.
  • Join relevant Facebook groups, such as parent groups, sports clubs, and village group pages (make sure to follow the group rules), and share information about your business.
  • Post images of your products along with some staged photos of a graduate receiving them. This will help your customers visualize the job that your gift will bring to their graduating student.
  • Offer special incentives and pricing for customers who like, comment, or share your posts with their network.
