The Print Shop is Open…

 

With pumpkins and carving kits at the ready, we’re once again gearing up for Halloween. And at Creative Spark, that can only mean one thing….. the Little Print Shop of Horrors is back!

Returning for the fifth year running, this year is all set to be our best ever. Sticking to a half-decade of tradition, Spark Towers will split into teams (creatives, account handlers and sales all working together) that will compete against each other to create horror-themed posters. This year’s theme is ‘Award Winning Horror Movies,’ and once the finished prints are finalised they’ll be put up for sale for you to buy from our website. The winners will be the team whose print garners the biggest profit.

Flexing both our collaborative and competitive muscles, the Little Print Shop of Horrors is our way of showcasing up-and-coming illustration and print talent, both internally and within the wider creative industry.

So what’s in store for this year? Well, alongside Creative Sparks’ team entries, we’ve lined up some special treats (no tricks, we promise) to make this the best Print Shop yet. We’ll be teaming up with PR and content marketing giants Brazen PR, illustration agencies like Jelly London, Handsome Frank and Illustrationweb, and we’ll even be getting in a special celebrity illustrator… We’ll also be resurrecting best-selling pieces from years gone by to offer you more prints than ever before.     

All the money we raise will go towards our chosen charity Forever Manchester, who fund thousands of community projects in and around Greater Manchester. We’ve raised over £10,000 from past Print-Shop events and, as our Founder and Creative Director Neil Marra, is an ambassador for this local charity, we’re confident this year can be our strongest yet.

All entries will make their grand debut at our online Print shop – http://shop.creativespark.co.uk/ and will be available for purchase from the 21st October.
