I love the idea of printing a succinct quote on promotional products. Promotional gifts are meant to be memorable, and adding a thoughtfully chosen quote packed with inspiration or wisdom makes the product all that more memorable. Even if you don’t choose to print a pithy quote on any of your graduation promotional items, you may want to include one in that graduation card.
Check out our list of 20 quotes related to those upcoming graduations.

5) “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ~ Nelson Mandela
