Most football fans have experienced the misery of sitting on a cold, hard bleacher seat through a 3 hour football game. That unpleasant experience is mutliplied if the seats are wet. That's why it is so easy to sell stadium seat cushions to football fans making these school spirit items excellent fundraisers! Custom stadium seat cushions come in many sizes and thicknesses. Typically, the thinner stadium cushions are used for giveaways to fans and the thicker cushions are used for fundraising and selling at your school spirit stores at the games. One exception would be if you are giving away a stadium cushion to your donors or season ticket holders, it's best to go wtih a premium cushion that is thicker so you it doesn't seem like a cheap gift to "thank" them for their support.
How to Use Stadium Seat Cushions for Fundraising
- Choose the right seat cushions - When buying stadium seat cushions to sell in your school booster club, you should opt for the thicker and larger cushions. The smaller cushions, such as the 12" x 12" size are considered promotional cushions rather than a higher quality cushion used for resale. We recommend cushions to be at least 13" wide and 2" thick for standard vinyl covered foam. For closed cell foam cushions, we recommend the cushions to be at least 3/4" thick.
- Decide upon the custom design on the cushions - For your loyal fans, a great design is a must to sell more cushions. With the right design, your stadiums cushions will sell out!
- Obtain local business sponsors - The first step in obtaining sponsors to pay for your cushions is to decide how many sponsors you want to get. Get the total amount for the custom cushions, then dividing it by the total number of sponsors you want. The more sponsors you secure, the lower the price for each sponsor. Of course, lower sponsor amounts are easier to get because small businesses are able to afford to be a sponsor.
- Sell cushions to fans - At the football games (and before), have a prominent location for your school spirit items. Have announcements made at strategic times before the game and during halftime. Offer sales for limited times.
By following the steps above, you can obtain custom bleacher seat cushions with business sponsors paying for the products. Then every cushion you sell is 100% profit for your sports team or school club.
