Spooky Promotions

  • Oct 7, 2022

What's scarier than realizing the summer is over and Halloween is around the corner? Not being prepared for the holiday! Between back-to-school and the start of fall promotions, it’s easy to forget about this opportunity to sell more promo. Halloween events were affected in the last couple of years as many people celebrated indoors in small groups. However this year, Halloween is expected to make a comeback as individuals and businesses are ready to restore their pre-pandemic lifestyles. As there is expected to be an increase in spending for Halloween-related items this year, this creates the perfect chance to help your customers build out a spooky promotion using personalized products.  


Lighten Up the Mood


Halloween is the perfect time for clients to show their fun, light-hearted side. Encourage them to break the ice with a bold, vibrant promotion that enables them to stand out.  Light-up products such as flashlights, keychains, and pens are suitable for anyone wanting to catch their audience's attention. Lights not only increase visibility for the user, but also for the brand that supplies the branded item making them an ideal choice to promote safety. Flashlights can be used at night while trick-or-treating and remain useful for months after the original event.  State parks, road workers, or anyone in the automotive industry can make use of this inexpensive marketing idea.  


Success in The Bag


Trick-or-treating requires gear. Beyond a great costume, individuals will need something to put all their delicious candy in. One solution is to pitch custom-branded tote bags for your client's Halloween events. Available in a variety of spooky colors, we offer bags in different sizes that are tailored to your needs. Wine bags are great for corporate client gifts and small personalized bundles. Instead of sending items in a dull box, encourage them to customize a bag with a friendly ghost or festive font to indicate the theme of the promotion. Larger bags like our shopping tote can be used for grocery stores, flea markets, or liquor stores. 


Dress it Up 


Halloween often brings out everyone’s creative side. Some costumes are so unique that they require additional personalization such as an imprint on a shirt or hoodie. Remember that at Magnus we can personalize your garments using a variety of methods including DTG, embroidery, and screen printing so your clients can bring designs to life just as they imagined them! Add text, numbers, or logos to one of our apparel options, or bring your own for us to customize. Make sure your creative customers have the ability to create their own costumes and personalize them as needed. 


Don’t pass on this opportunity for your clients to score additional brand recognition using one of the season’s best holidays - Halloween. Filled with fun, it is a great time to target different industries that work with children such as schools, camps, or sports teams. Encourage them to create their own D-I-Y costumes and further personalize them using our imprint techniques. Low-cost and far-reaching, the items used in these promotions will remain useful for a long time.
