So it’s the end of September and the retail stores have had their Halloween candy and costumes out for weeks! I have to admit, I love this time of year and really get into Halloween and the fun that surrounds it. At Pinnacle we always dress up, have a party and eat waaay too much food and candy. I still need to figure out costumes for this year and have been scouring Pinterest for unique, DIY ideas.
Pinnacle's Halloween Party 2011
Halloween is a great holiday that everyone loves to celebrate. Take this opportunity to market your company or organization in a fun, memorable way. Here are my Top 5 Halloween promotional products picks.
1) Pumpkin Drawstring Backpack
A great alternative to the disposable trick-or-treating bags and is much more functional for kids to wear instead of carrying. The jack o’ lantern stock art comes pre-printed on the front of each bag in reflective ink.

Here at Pinnacle, Halloween 2011 is off to a spook-tacular start! Hourly trivia questions, a game to guess how many pieces of candy were in a jar, and the consumption of enough Halloween sweets to make any dentist cringe all led up to our annual company costume contest this afternoon.
To say that our employees were creative with their costume choices this year would be an understatement- “Charlie’s Angels,” “Pinnacle Promotions Man,” “Spongebob Squarepants,” Steve Jobs, Erin Andrews, and a real-life pop art cartoon character were just a few of the characters in our midst and everyone had a tough time deciding which costumes they liked best. In the end, pop art cartoon woman, Allie, took first place for the second year in a row (visit our Facebook page to see her bacon outfit from 2010!) and Erin Andrews (aka Ashley W.) was our runner-up.
Want to see more photos from Pinnacle’s Halloween festivities? Pictures will be posted to Facebook shortly, so stay tuned.
Did your company celebrate Halloween this year? We’d love to see photos! Please feel free to share with us on our Facebook wall.
We hope that you and your loved ones have a safe and Happy Halloween!

It’s officially fall and (thankfully!) the weather is starting to get cooler. I’ve noticed a few of the fabulous fall colors starting to show in the trees, and I can definitely feel the beginnings of fall in the air. As corn mazes and fall festivals begin to pop up our Weekend Guide and personal calendars, I can’t help but think about all the fun that comes with the change in the season.
I personally have to admit I’m in love with Autumn. It’s by far my favorite time of the year here. The colors and cool breeze are the best. And without going into too much detail about my craziness, I’m a hugely big sucker for Halloween. I love the costumes, the decorations and of course the cute little goblins and ghouls. I guess it doesn’t hurt that there is always an abundance of candy left over after the 31st as well!
My family has always gone all out for the occasion so I guess it comes with the territory that I would try to incorporate the festivities into my marketing efforts as well. Of course for me, my Halloween planning starts with finding perfect seasonal products to fit within my marketing mix.

Can you guess which Pinnacle employee rocked this cute devil costume circa Halloween, 1989?
Looking back on past Halloween experiences is always entertaining, so this special Halloween edition of Pinnacle’s blog incorporates several hilarious anecdotes from our very own Marketing Department.
From Sarah’s clever use of promotional balloons to my reconstructed promotional gift boxes, there are many ways to recycle and revamp items you already own to create one-of-a-kind costumes. Whether you opt for handmade or store-bought outfits this Halloween, Pinnacle hopes that you and your family have a safe holiday filled with fun, friends, family, and, of course, lots of sweet treats!
