  • Hauntingly Good Halloween Printables

    If you are fundraising between now and Halloween, try working that spooktacular theme into your fundraiser and watch it take off! Coordinating with a holiday or event can dramatically boost your sales by adding even more relevance and incentive for customers to spend money.

    SUPPLIES:

    - Download and print our Halloween wrapper and tag pdf click here.

    - Scissors or paper cutter

    - Hole punch

    - Ribbon (if you will be tying the tags on)

    - Double-sided tape

    Once you’ve downloaded our Halloween printables click here, print off as many of the designs of your choosing. We have three designs each for our $1 chocolate bars, $2 Chocolate Lover’s Bars, and tags for lollipops or other candies.  Full instructions are also included in the pdf.

    When all of your designs are printed off, cut them out according to the pdf directions. If you are pre-wrapping the bars prior to sales, simply apply a piece of double-stick tape to the underside of the upper flap and adhere to the underside flap. Make sure you clearly divide any flavors of bars if you are pre-wrapping them, so customers get the flavor they want. Clearly label the flavor of the chocolate bar on a sign near you if you are only selling one type of chocolate bar. It could also be beneficial to have stacks of the bar wraps set out at your sales stand and have patrons select their design as well.

    For lollipops, you will want to use the tag designs and can attach the tags in one of two ways.

    TAG METHOD #1: Punch a hole at the top and the bottom of the tag and slide the lollipop stick into the two holes.

    TAG METHOD #2: Punch a hole at one of the upper corners of the tag and cut a length of ribbon. String the tag to the center of the ribbon and tie the ribbon onto the lollipop stick up by the candy. This method will also work if you would like to tie the tags to other candy and snack items like Snickers bars, Reese’s, Starbursts, etc.

  • Prom Fundraising Idea

    Here is an easy prom fundraising idea. This is from a previous blog post.  We received many success stories from our customers, so we wanted to share it with you again.

    It is PROM TIME! That means it is time to break out the decorations, formal attire, and some fundraising. Maybe you are head of the prom committee or need to do some springtime fundraising for a class trip or something, using prom as a basis for your fundraiser can really pay off. Here's a handy idea with our chocolate roses that can help boost your spring school fundraising:

    ASK ME TO PROM ROSES

    1. Download our printable sheet here of "will you go to prom with me" cards.
    2. Print out and cut apart cards (6 cards per 8.5x11 sheet, so you have no waste!). You can use any color paper but if you have card stock or a thicker paper your cards will hold up better.
    3. Hole punch each card in the middle at the top and using ribbon, tie one card onto each rose.  If you choose to, you can punch two holes close to each other so your card will sit more centered on the candy stick.
    4. The giver can write their potential prom date's name at the top and sign their name at the bottom on the dotted lines.

    Now, you/your group can either pre-tie on all cards and ribbons to the rose or if you have a table setup, leave them loose and only tie them on as they are purchased. This way makes it easier for people to write their names on the cards. If you have a table set up, having pens on hand will also be helpful for purchasers to write their names on the tags.

    If you use curling ribbon, you can curl the ends of the ribbons after they are tied to add some fun or simply tie it into a classic bow. Use your school colors, prom colors or just a bright and fun variety! Either way, your fundraiser is sure to be the hit of the school and not only bring in money for your cause but also spread some prom cheer!

  • Sweet Valentine Fundraising

    Welcome 2015! A new year and a new semester bring new ideas for fundraising! In previous posts, we've emphasized the benefit of coordinating your fundraiser with a holiday theme, and Valentine's Day is no different. In fact, it is one of the better holidays to coordinate with your candy fundraiser. Items like chocolate bars, chocolate roses, and lollipops are great little treats to make into candy grams that friends can give to one another or a sweetheart. Boost sales even more by adding some valentine's flair with our free download & print chocolate bar wraps and lollipop tags.

    Once you've downloaded the wraps, follow the instructions to cut them apart. We recommend having a table or location setup when selling these to make the bar wrapping easier. Once your customer has selected their chocolate bar, they can select a wrap design and then you/your group helpers can place and adhere that wrap around the bar for the customer.

    If you are considering pre-wrapping your chocolate bars prior to selling, keep a few things in mind:
    - If you are selling a single chocolate bar flavor, make sure you have a sign(s) stating they are chocolate bars
    - If you are selling multiple flavors of chocolate bars, you may want to wrap each flavor in its own design so you and your customers can easily distinguish between them or keep them in labeled boxes by flavor

    Don't worry, we have not forgotten about chocolate roses or lollipops! You can download and print our fun valentine's tags to use. Follow the how-to instructions on our previous blog post here. Similar to the chocolate bars, you can pre-attach the tags to the lollipops or let your customers choose the tag they wish for you to attach. You can go even further with your lollipops and create a festive and fun bouquet. Group several pops together and secure with ribbon of your choice. Be sure to price these accordingly, adding up the selling price of each item you include in the bouquet. Further instructions on making the lollipop bouquets can be found here.

    We've also created valentine's themed sale signs for you to use in addition to the tags and wraps. Download and print these $1 signs or $2 signs to stick up on your table setup. You can even place them on or inside candy or snack fundraising boxes as a decorative and informative eye catcher.
