College Recruiting Giveaways by BookWear®

Maximize Student Enrollment with “Novel” Recruiting Gifts
That Make an Impression!

Convert “Accepted” students into “Enrolled” students. Send them a “book” with a “Congratulations!” and “Welcome!” statement on the cover and a surprise gift inside. They will open it and the gift inside will remind them of your message again and again. Mail it like a thick postcard, or we’ll mail it for you. Choose from a dozen stock gifts to go inside.



Students love wearing t-shirts with a campus logo on it. You can make it their favorite tee, logo and campus by adding pizzaz. Combine a t-shirt, a surprise and a creative design into a little package for them. It looks like a little book but the recipient can tell there’s something other than pages inside. They feel compelled to open it. There’s a compressed t-shirt inside printed with your campus logo. This book is a “best seller” because it does such a great job of marketing your school.

When you have students displaying your branded t-shirt to their peers, that’s premium advertising! Incentivise it by making it fun with BookWear®. The t-shirt is printed, compressed and inserted into a book cover that you design. Mail it like a thick postcard to your list of prospective, accepted students.

Choose from a dozen different stock gifts to go inside the book: t-shirt, flags, sunglasses, baseball caps, etc. Take a look at the stock products list: 2023 Products
