    Make chocolate roses, lollipops, pretzel rods and more into fun and cute candy grams with our free tags. Simply download, print, cut and attach to items with ribbons. Pre-attach tags to items or set them out in a display next to your treats for customers to select from themselves and fill out for a friend or sweetheart.

    Get creative with your fundraiser and build more profit! Using a variety of chocolate roses and lollipops, select 2 or more items and wrap together with ribbon to create a delightful candy gram. Add up the selling price of each item you've included in your candy gram for the final selling price to your customer. Create bundles of 2, 3, 4 or more items for even more selling variety. Attaching festive ribbons help seal the sweet deal, and the addition of one of our downloadable tags is the finishing touch.

    Make delicious chocolate bars even more appealing with our free candy bar wraps. We have designs in both $1 and $2 varieties for you to download and print for free. Simply wrap our snazzy designs around your bar of choice, making them into fun valentine gifts. Stack the different bar designs next to your candy bars to allow customers to select their greeting. Leaving bars to wrap during or after making the sale will also help customers identify what flavor of chocolate bar they are purchasing (unless you are selling only one flavor of chocolate bar).

    You can find all of the downloads in the blog post as well as on our tool page and all the products mentioned on our website. Have lots of love and fundraising creativity!!


  • Fundraising For The Holidays

    The holidays are a great time to fundraise and theming your fundraiser with the season can help you with your sales. If you have a booth or table top setup, making signs that say "holiday fundraiser" or adding festive decorations help set the mood. Creatively displaying your fundraising products in decorated boxes or display pieces can be another effective merchandising and marketing tool. Just be sure to keep things organized and not to obscure your main product.

    Having clearly marked price signs are also useful. Especially if you get busy or have a line, that way customers know how much to have on hand. You can download our fundraising signs here or our new holiday fundraising signs here. Not only can you use these signs at setups but you can print out multiples of them for your sellers to attach to the outside of their fundraising boxes.

    Selling slightly more 'speciality' items tend to be a bigger hit for holiday purchasing. Items like $2 chocolate bars, chocolate pretzel rods, lollipops and key chains work perfect for small gifts, stocking stuffers or just a treat for themselves.

    You can also add a holiday flair to your fundraising products without affecting your bottom line. Download and print our free chocolate bar wrappers to use on our $2 chocolate bars. Little touches like this can be extra incentive for customers to purchase. Incorporating some of these quick and easy tips can be a great way to boost sales and help you meet your end of year goal.

    If you are searching out new and different places to fundraise, we have some suggestions on that too. With autumn and winter come craft fairs, search your local schools, churches or community centers for these upcoming events. Depending on if you are affiliated with the hosting location of these activities, you may be able to set up a table for free. Holiday concerts, recitals and other shows can also be a fast and easy way to access lots of people in a small amount of time.

    If you are hosting a fundraising night, consider having various fundraising stations like a snack bar. Varieties like our Combo Variety #1, Snack Variety #2, and Create Your Own Combo Variety give you a great mix of items to sell for performance based events, trivia nights or movie nights. If your fundraising venue/event does not allow the consumption of food, try our Donation Dots® or key chains and lanyards.

    Whatever holiday fundraiser you are considering, you can call 1-800-500-2500 to place your order or for assistance. One of our fundraising experts would be happy to assist you in selecting a fundraiser that fits your group and goals.

  • Cold Weather Fundraising

    Burrrrr, it is getting cold outside! Gone are the summer months of fundraising outdoors at little league games, school events and otherwise warm activities. With winter temperatures fast approaching (if not already in your area), some of your fundraising strategies may need adjusting.

    With more activities moving indoors, and holiday events approaching, using these as a launch point for your fundraiser will ensure you have access to a steady stream of customers. Schools, churches and other community halls often host craft fairs in November and December. Contacting event coordinators to see if you can setup a table near the entrance is a great way to gain lots of potential customers.

    These same organizations may also be hosting holiday movie nights or recitals. Tables in the front or lobby area with chocolate bars, lollipops or cases like our Candy Variety #1 offer great snack options with minimal packaging disturbance if patrons can eat during the shows. If the food is not allowed during the movie/play/recital/or such, see if you are still able to set up prior to the show. You could also set up during intermission as a break time treat. You can also use product fundraisers as a break from traditional candy fundraising. Items like our Donation Dots® are quick and simple, requiring people only to donate. While other fundraisers like our key chains and flashlights offer great small gifts or stocking stuffers.

    If you have access to the facilities to host your own event, such as a trivia night, then the sky is the limit to what you can do. While planning is key in any event, starting early and getting the word out to attract patrons is crucial. Have your group or students make flyers and posters to hang up at local businesses and high foot traffic areas.

    The more frigid temps are also a sign of winter break approaching. If you are still looking to meet an end of year goal, there is still plenty of time left. Most orders ship from our warehouse fast and get to you quickly so you can start selling and bring in that profit.
