Sports Spirit Items for Cheering LoudlyIf you have ever watched golf or a tennis match, then you know the etiquette is for the fans to stay quiet. A muted version of clapping is encouraged after a great swing or play. You don't find golf or tennis fans yelling through megaphones or banging together noisemakers such as thundersticks or hand clappers. You'll notice them very calmly observing and paying attention to every detail of play. Now, switch gears and think about a football or basketball game and you have the complete opposite reaction from the fans. They are loud during all times of play. As a matter of fact, if you asked them to quiet down, there would likely be uproar like what happened when the

Custom Foam Fingers and Foam HandsSome people you like; some people you just don't. This is especially true when the conversation shifts to sports. You know that overly-obnoxious sports fan that wears a shirt, hat, and even a wrist watch EVERY SINGLE DAY supporting their team. It's that same person that shifts every conversation back to sports (particularly "their College team"). Often those people aren't even alumni of that school, but just self-proclaimed fans. Well give them the finger. But not just any finger. Give them a foam finger. Of course, make sure it has your team mascot printed on it.

First of all, let's answer this question for those who are new to buying school spirit items, "What are thundersticks?" Thundersticks are a pair of inflatable sticks that are banged together to make a loud booming noise. They are most commonly used as school spirit items to cheer on a sports team. They are one of the most popular spirit items sold to schools. Other names used to refer to these noisemakers include the following: ThunderStix, BamBams, boom sticks, cheering sticks, and banger sticks. When shopping for thundersticks, it's easy to be overwhelmed by all of the options and the price points. One common reason these are bought is to sell at games to raise money for a booster club or organization. Because of the low individual price of thundersticks, they are great for fundraising. Options for thundersticks include reusable vs. one-time use, LED light-up, and many other options from which to choose. Below you will find a quick reference buyers guide for the top-selling thundersticks.

We often are asked the question about the differences between the various stadium noise makers generally known as thunder sticks. Below we will explain the differences between each of them so you can decide for yourself, which are right for you. The truth of the matter is that they are all extremely similar, but since we are frequently asked the question, here are the answers!

Fan-ta-Sticks

Fan-ta-sticks thundersticksThese are our personal favorites for thundersticks. We sell this brand the most, because they are domestically printed in the USA and they can be shipped in about 1 week with the option of a 2-day rush, if necessary. The product itself is made in China, but inventory is stocked in the U.S. and printed on demand to fulfill orders. The best feature about these thundersticks is that they are re-usable. They have a valve, just like beach balls and pool rafts have, so you can inflate and deflate, as necessary. You can use these over and over again at football games. If your company is buying these thundersticks to giveaway, these are great options, because the recipients will get more use out of them, thus giving your business more marketing exposure. These noisemakers are made of durable vinyl. The size of the thundersticks is 23" x 4". Minimums are as low as 50 pieces are available.

BamBams

BamBams thundersticks noisemakersThe name BamBams is simply a brand name of the ever popular noisemakers. They are sized at 23.5" x 4 1/4". They are one-time use products. Once they are filled with air and sealed, you can not add more air. The material is 100% recycled polyethylene. They start out white and can be printed any PMS color you desire. They are produced overseas, so production time options include 9 Week Super Saver, 5 Week Economy, and 3 Week Priority, with the cost increasing as the production time gets shorter.
