Must-Have Items for Your Back-to-School Supplies List

Some folks consider back-to-school time the most wonderful time of the year. (If you’re a parent with kids at home, we know you can relate!) At Amsterdam Printing, we love this time of year as well simply because we love the back-to-school supplies we have to offer teachers, schools, parents, and kids.

So get ready to make your list and check it twice. Here are some must-have promotional items for the 2012-2013 academic school year:

1. Laureate Academic Desk Planners. One of the ways to guarantee a successful school year is by staying organized, and nothing helps more than a 13-month academic planner that leaves plenty of room for due dates, notes, and scribbles about special events.
