Happy Halloween From INKredible

Steph here, one of Inkredible’s customer service team.

Halloween is one of my most favourite times of the year when we can express our creative traits and personalities. The million-pound question is what is your costume this year? Have you been inspired by recent box office films such as the creepy movie IT 2, or have you opted for a classic character like Frankenstein’s Monster. There is so much material to base our spooky themes on, but what is interesting to know is how this all came about.

The Celts, who originated 2000 years ago, believed that when summer met winter, the division between this world and the otherworld was at its thinnest allowing souls to pass through. This was known as the festival of Samahin and was celebrated by honouring Ancestors on the night of the 31st of October. Food was prepared and huge bonfires were lit in memory of them.

It was believed that harmful spirits also passed through this breach, so people wore costumes to disguise themselves from the ghastly monsters.

In light of the origin of Halloween, we have tasked our cutest ‘trick or treater’ to warn off some unwanted guests in our Darlington warehouse. These 8-legged residents do give a couple of our Inkredible packers a scare when hiding under pallets.

Print Your Own Halloween Masks

After you've printed your favorite design to create a spooky Halloween Candle, why not complete your frightening look by downloading and printing our creepy Halloween masks!


We have 4 pre-coloured designs to choose from, in both full mask and eye mask variations depending on what you prefer. To keep the kids busy, we've also included each design in Black and White, so get the felt tips out and let their creativity run wild!


Simply click the download link below, print out the masks you desire, cut them out and attach some elastic through the holes at each side. Alternatively you can attach some old lolly sticks to use them as hand-held masks.


We recommend printing the pre-coloured masks on your printers 'high quality' setting whereas the Black and White uncoloured masks should be fine on a standard print setting.

We'd also use either 130gsm or 190gsm Matt Photo Paper for the best quality possible. This also provides greater strength than standard 80gsm printer paper and the mask is likely to last that little bit longer.


Halloween Colouring Sheet

If you've already downloaded and printed our Halloween Part Invites and plan on having a houseful of kids after 'trick or treating', why not hand out our Halloween themed colouring sheet to keep them quiet while you have a well deserved cuppa!

Print Your Own Halloween Candles

Print Halloween Candles

Print Your Own Halloween Candles

What do you need?

  1. Pillar candles
  2. Tissue paper (or paper napkins)
  3. Inkjet printer and paper
  4. Glue stick
  5. Scotch tape
  6. Hair dryer

How do I create my candles?

STEP ONE

Cut the tissue paper a few inches smaller than the printer paper and then scotch tape the tissue or napkin to the paper. When you are finished, run an iron over it a few times on the lowest setting to make sure it is perfectly flat. Once done you can then print the image on to the tissue paper.


STEP TWO

Cut out your image. It is advised to cut through both tissue and the paper, this also makes it easier to cut round.


STEP THREE

Wipe some glue around the edges of the design and stick the image to the candle- this helps to prevent the tissue paper from moving when you use the hair dryer.


STEP FOUR

Hold the hair dryer a few inches away and go over the design. The candle will heat up and the tissue paper will begin to merge into the candle. The white parts of the tissue paper will start to disappear and by magic you will have your Halloween candle!


TOP TIP!

This is great fun for the kids, especially during school holidays to keep them entertained! Why not get the kids to design their own pictures, simply scan them in and print them on to tissue paper. The possibilities are endless!
