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.
- 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.

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.

The chillier it gets outside; the more people move inside. Use this to your advantage when planning your next fundraiser. Inside events give you great access to a stream of people in a condensed area, meaning they are far more likely to pass your way while attending.
Events or happenings in your area that you could fundraise at:
- Craft fairs - schools, churches, and community centers most often hold these in November and December
- Holiday plays, musicals, or recitals - schools, performance centers, auditoriums
- Movie nights
- Trivia nights
- Shopping malls
- Holiday activities - light displays, Santa dinners
If you are connected to any of these events or venues then, you may be able to fundraise at the events for free. If not, try reaching out and explaining your cause. It doesn't hurt to ask, and they may be accommodating once they hear your cause.
What fundraising products sell best this time of year? The answer can be based on the event. Item's like our $1 Chocolate Bars, $2 Chocolate Bars, Chocolate Pretzel Rods, lollipops, key chains and lanyards all make not only great moment of snacks, but also great stocking stuffers. Items like these may work best at local fairs and holiday activities. Quick treat time items like our Supreme Selection, Snack Variety, and School Store will likely have higher sales at events like movie and trivia nights or performances where food is allowed. But, get creative with your fundraising offerings! We have no minimum order on any of our products so, for example, you can order a case of chocolate bars and a case of our Supreme Selection to have the best of both worlds! Providing a variety is always a good thing.
You can further spice up your indoor fundraising with our printable lollipop tags, that you can download here. You can tie these to lollipops, pretzel rods or even chocolate bars with ribbons (see our previous blog post here for more on holiday fundraising).
