Awesome Jack-O-Lantern Carving For Halloween

 

In the spirit of Halloween coming up in just a little over a month, I wanted to post a couple of pictures of pumpkins carved into a Jack-O-Lantern by one of our graphic designers at Perfect Imprints. These were the first two attempts by Jean-Paul Tamayo and I think they were amazing. I can’t wait to see what he unveils this year. I’m like a kid when Halloween comes around. I love costumes and haunted houses and jack-o-lanterns, and, of course, stealing my kids’ candy from their trick or treat bags. I’ve even thought about putting on a costume and going trick or treating. I’m sure this is just one of the many reasons why my wife says that I am like her 4th child. Anyway, Halloween is fun. Enough said. Great job on those pumpkins, Jean-Paul!

10 Ideas For Halloween Trick or Treat Bags

 

In light of the Halloween observance coming up in October, I have listed some ideas to use Halloween trick or treat bags to help market your business. All ideas won’t apply to your business, but many of them will. Halloween bags are cheap and are great to give out in mass quantities for branding and marketing exposure. The bags you give to your clients will end up in the hands of their children or the children of their friends.

  1. Use the Halloween bags as a retail shopping bag when your customers purchase small merchandise.
  2. If you provide written quotes or estimates to your clients, insert the printed quote in the Halloween bag when you deliver the estimate to them.
  3. For photographers, deliver your client’s printed photos in a trick or treat bag.
  4. Give out quantities of your bags printed with your logo to businesses to pass out to kids that come in.
  5. Give out bags to non-profit organizations that deal with kids so they will have bags.
  6. Give out your trick or treat bags at conventions that take place in October.
  7. If your business provides samples of products, put them in the trick or treat bags and hand them out.
  8. Have a display at your place of business with a sign saying FREE and give out to your customers who have children.
  9. Insert brochures, business cards, or other literature about your business in the bags and pass out around neighborhoods and/or businesses.
  10. Pass out enough Halloween bags to your child’s school to give out one for each child. The child will bring the bag home and that will market your business to their parents.
