Halloween is the second highest grossing commercial holiday (after Christmas). Don’t let it pass you by, take the utmost of it. There are countless options for leveraging Halloween to get your business noticed and attract new customers.
Here at An Phat, we’ve been helping companies and business of all sizes expand their holiday sales for the past 8 years. Check out the list below for more inspiration and fresh, creative ideas you can use in your business signage to drive customers to your business during Halloween using advertising signboards
To create the most authentic “Halloweeny” atmosphere, there are some main things to take into account are:
1. Color combination – orange, black, white, gray, yellow…
Pumpkin decorations, pies, and wheat spikes are available to provide orange coloration. The stands with cemetery graphics, bats hanging from the ceiling, and witches hovering in the air will provide the most pleasant experience for your zombies (or a true Halloween experience for your customer).
If you’re looking for a unique approach to Halloween, try muted colors for your front porch decor. They provide a more modern, elegant aesthetic. Switch bright orange colors with softer shades of green and white. Maintain the color palette for all your arrangements to exude a unique style.
2. Don’t forget about music
Keep Halloween in the air with theme music with spooky boos and creepy voices whispering (There are some playlists on Youtube).
3. Lighting is very essential
Keep the space as dark as possible for a deeper effect. Even an ordinary knock on the door is scary in the dark.
4. Make-up and costumes
Is one of the main reasons why Halloween is expected. Waiters, waitresses, customer support specialists, and sales consultants will be pleased to dress as they would never on a normal day. If you have these, you can go ahead and do what will set you apart from others. Custom decals, 3D raised signs, and lightbox signs will create a unique Halloween look for your venue.

Oh, some important facts that may help you in planning your party or creating your Halloween campaign:
What does the word Halloween mean?
Halloween is the day before the Christian holy days of All Hallows’ Day on 1 November and All Souls’ Day on 2 November. This is where the word “Halloween” comes from – Hallows’ Eve.
Why is Halloween celebrated on October 31?
Halloween is celebrated on October 31 because ancient Scottish festival Samhain, the root of Halloween, was on this day. According to them on this very day the two worlds of the living and the dead were the closest. This allowed the dead to cross the border and wander on Earth.
Why are Jack-O-Lanterns called so?
Jack-O-Lanterns are carved pumpkins with lanterns in them that are a symbol of Halloween. Before the Irish would migrate to America, turnips and potatoes were carved instead of pumpkins, but then pumpkins – bigger and more suitable for lighting – came to replace them. The name Jack-O-Lantern comes from “Stingy Jack” – an Irish myth hero. According to the legend he successfully tricks the devil and avoids going to hell but is unable to go to Heaven as well. Since that day he wanders the Earth and carries a lantern with him to light his way at nights.
Phobia from Halloween (Scare of Halloween)?
There’s a phobia from Halloween that even has a name – Samhainophobia.
Why do people dress up on Halloween in scary costumes?
The tradition of dressing up in scary costumes on Halloween dates back to the ancient Celtics. They believed that dressing up like ghosts, spirits or demons would blend them in with real ones that roam in the streets on that day. Thus they would stay safe and sound.
Nowadays Halloween is the second highest grossing commercial holiday in US and Canada, meaning that YOU can boost your business easily just enjoying a happy day.
