Posted by Jeffrey Gononsky on

If you're like so many others, you might consider having items screen printed to hand out to your students, employees, friends, or others. The real question is: did you know that you aren’t simply stuck with printing t-shirts? 

With the right screen printing supplies, you can create custom screen prints on a wider variety of items. Plus, handing out branded freebies is a great way to promote your business! Why not choose something that’s going to really set you apart from the crowd instead of simply handing out t-shirts?

If you’re looking for just the right thing to use for your screen printing needs, here are some surprising items that you can make into outstanding custom screen prints:: 

Office Supplies     

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone (or someone who knows someone) who doesn’t get a particular thrill when walking into an office supply store. Students, teachers, and office workers alike often get excited over the idea of being able to start a new supply run. 

Wouldn’t it be even more exciting to be able to present those office supply fans in your life with something personalized just for them? 

Many people don’t know that with the right screen printing supplies, screen printing can be used on many different office supplies like binders, backpacks, and even electronics. If you have a student getting ready to go back to school, a teacher getting ready to start the school year, or even just a new employee joining your company, getting some office supplies personalized might be just that extra little bit of a push for them to start the year off right. 

At Holden’s Screen Supply Corp., our screen printing kit can get you started on your custom screen printing journey. Whether you’re a shop owner, hobbyist, or simply interested in the process, we’ve got what you need to create your own screen-printed office supplies. 

Sports Equipment

Are you the manager or coach of a sports team and looking for a fun and innovative way to show appreciation for your team? Look no further! Creating custom screen prints to use on sports equipment is a great way to give your team something special to hang onto once the season is over. 

Here at Holden’s, we’re happy to offer a wide variety of screen printing supplies to allow for printing on all kinds of different equipment. From balls to snowboards to hiking gear or chairs, with the right screen printing supplies, you can create incredible personalizations on on just about anything you can imagine. Plus, you can rest easy in the fact that whoever receives that personalized gift will be able to use it over and over, remembering who gave it to them and how they received it. 


Making custom glassware is becoming increasingly popular for many kinds of events like weddings, birthdays, graduations, and other celebrations. How awesome would it be to have custom screen printed glassware at your next event? 

Give out screen-printed glasses as wedding favors on your big day. You can screenprint just about anything you might want to give out as a favor. While we already mentioned glasses, consider other options, such as flip flops, t-shirts, cloth napkins, and more. You’ll have fun and your guests will receive a unique reminder of your special day.

For those who aren't planning to tie the knot anytime soon, consider creating custom glassware as promotional material for your business! Give out a pint glass with your branded logo - it certainly beats handing out business cards any day! This is a unique handout that your potential clients will remember, and it’s something that they’ll be able to use over and over again. 


Stickers are fun to collect at any age, and getting to create your own custom ones is even better. Screen printing stickers can be a fun and exciting way to promote your business, create rewards, label letters or packages, and more!

What if you're not a business owner? That's completely fine! You can still have fun making your own stickers for yourself or friends and family. Create fun and unique sayings to add to bumper stickers for your car or invent your own design for new and exciting custom screen prints. 


Are you looking for a new way to advertise your business? Getting a sign screen printed might just be your answer! Many businesses advertise using signs like the ones that you see on the fences at baseball games or displayed in yards. These signs can be made to suit practically any kind of business because the design possibilities of screen printing on a sign are practically limitless. 


With screen printing, creating your own custom set of shoes is easier than ever before. Screen printing is so versatile that you can design your own pair of shoes - be it flip flops, sneakers, or even high heels - and print them with your design to meet your vision. 

Plus, imagine how effective marketing for your business could be if you handed out branded flip-flops as an advertisement. If you had a business that catered toward the college-aged crowd, handing out flip-flops on campus would be a huge hit. Honestly, handing out flip-flops to practically any crowd would be a hit. Who doesn’t love a good pair of flip-flops?
