School supplies and backpacks are among the top 3 items most parents and consumers buy during the back-to-school season. Their preferences are influenced by one or several factors - current trends as dictated by mass media and social media groups, school lists, and school supply packs being some of such influences. It is also observed that when parents choose school supplies for their kids, they choose value, that is, quality over cost, above anything else.
With the above mentioned considerations, let QualityImprint help you take a quick look at what's trending now that school is just around the corner.
The typical school kid or university student goes to school armed with a notebook and a pen at the very least; hence the popularity of notebook and pen sets. Notebook and pen sets, such as this Junior notebook and pen set offered by QualityImprint, usually come in matching colors or color accents, making it a simple yet attractive back to school essential. The best thing about this Junior set is that the pen features a paper barrel while the notebook's cover is in natural color – making it an eco-friendly way to launch your first day in school. The spiral bound notebook also includes an elastic closure to keep it shut however way you handle it when not in use and an elastic pen loop so you won't easily lose its matching pen. Because it's junior-sized, this set is so convenient to carry around. You can find the Junior notebook and pen set under Notebooks in the Offfice Supplies & Awards category.
Maybe you can get away without a notebook, but you can never start the back to school season right without pens! Of course, school tasks such as filling out forms, taking down notes, answering an exam or quiz, or giving out your phone number to new friends will be a whole lot easier with a no-slip grip ergonomic pen such as QualityImprint’s the Savannah plastic pen. The Savannah pen is sure to take away your dread of writing a lot of stuff, because it is so easy to hold and write with and your hands won't get tired easily! Plus, you never have to worry about losing caps or the pen itself, because this pen features a plunger action mechanism and a plastic clip to keep it close. Most of all, its black ink medium point guarantees clear and legible handwriting each and every time.

The latest fashion trends may lean more towards chic totes and cool messenger bags, but backpacks still remain the most preferred back to school essential, like QualityImprint’s the Breckenridge classic backpack.

With most of their time spent in school or attending university classes, school kids and students need to bring with them a bottle of drinking water to keep them hydrated while away from the comfort of their homes. The best way to do this is to invest in reusable water bottles such as this Aluminum Bike Bottle.
