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.

Maybe it is the end of the school year for you, your group trip is fast approaching, or you need that last little push of profit. Whatever the reason, you may be in a rush to get in that last minute fundraiser. Have no fear! Not only do our orders ship out within 24 hours of ordering but we've got years of experience helping fundraising coordinators like yourself plan and get the most out of their last minute sales. Here are a few of our best tips for getting the most out of your last minute fundraiser:
Choose a Fundraiser With the Highest Profit
Going for the highest profit can be a good starting point to get the most out of each sale when you are in a time crunch. We have a large selection of items with up to 50% profit or higher, some of which are listed below, but also be sure to take the selling price into consideration. For example, our LED Flashlights are at 50% profit as are our $1 Chocolate Lover's Bars, but you make more per individual sale on the flashlights. Knowing how much profit you need to make within your time frame can help you to determine what price point would work best.
⁃ Donation Dots® 87% profit
⁃ Large Chocolate Lover's Bars 60% profit
⁃ LED Pocket Flashlights 50% profit
Choose A Top Seller
Selecting a known top selling fundraiser is another great way to make fast sales and quick profit. If you've had fundraisers in the past, you may have an idea of what you've had the most success with. If you are new to fundraising or not sure where to start, we've listed some of our top selling varieties below as a starting point. Do a little scouting around to see if there are any other fundraisers happening at the same time you will be holding yours. See what those groups are/will be selling, that way you do not inadvertently put yourself in a sales competition and oversaturate your customer base with the same items.
⁃ Supreme Selection®
⁃ $1 Chocolate Bars
⁃ Monster Variety
Making your fundraiser known to as many people as possible can only lead to more sales. Put up flyers at your organization/school/church, etc. You can also put sales flyers on the outside of your sellers' boxes, which you can download and print for free from our Tools section here. If you have a stationary setup at an event, make large poster signs to put up around you to attract customers and passersby.
Broaden Your Customer Base
Supplement your individual sales with a group sale at an event. School/group sporting events, recitals, competitions, anything where there are spectators is a great opportunity to tap into for sales. If you plan to be set up all day or multiple days, have sellers sign up for time slots and rotate out. You can also contact local businesses and see if you can set up a table outside during weekend or prime traffic hours.
