Halloween Highlights


Posted on : | By : admin | In : News

What are the hottest colors this season?

Orange, royal purple and green is the newest- consider how the non-seasonal prints may work for Mardi Gras as well. Also the traditional orange and black refreshed with gray and white.

Paper and embellishment collections that feature traditional Halloween themes of jack-o-lanterns, witches,bats and ghosts. Many retailers have gone with a more autumn/harvest season approach to their product. Many of these collections feature autumn leaves, pumpkins and stylized wildflowers. These collections transition quite well into Thanksgiving. Consider projects that do dual duty as Halloween and Thanksgiving décor with a few additions to make it season appropriate.

Cards-Folks will be looking for ideas for cards and especially party invitations. This is a great opportunity to show your customers great ways to make simple and elaborate cards. This is also a great time to show your customers the value in starting their own card clubs in the new year, and giving special discounts to card groups.
