Top 20 Halloween Prints of 2022

Rob Fletcher picks out some of the most creative and eye-catching print applications from Halloween 2022.

Seasonal print has become increasingly important for print service providers, with events throughout the year providing a valuable source of income in markets around the world.

One such event that has witnessed tremendous growth in recent years is Halloween, with celebrations surrounding All Hallows’ Eve growing in size every year.

Here, FESPA.com pays tribute to the role print companies play in this holiday and the work they have produced for this year’s spooky season…

Scarily good!


Designer: Heinz
Description: Heinz rolled out a limited-edition range of its garlic mayonnaise product, with the traditional colour being changed to bring a spooky feel to the popular condiment! The rebrand was accompanied by seasonal packs, each of which depicted a scary face.

It’s a mystery!

Trick or dog treat?


Designer: Denzel’s
Description: Who says humans are the only ones who can enjoy Halloween? Dog food brand Denzel’s came up with this clever pack for its dog treats. The packaging was designed to resemble a haunted house, with images on the side depicting the spooky scene.

Cereal killer!


Designer: Kellogg’s

Scarily clean!


Designer: Flash
Description: Spiced pumpkin has become synonymous with the autumn season, but more so for warm drink flavour as opposed to cleaning products. Inspired by the theme, Flash rolled out a limited edition spiced pumpkin kitchen cleaner, complete with scary pumpkins on the printed label.

B-B-B-Bacardi!


Designer: Bacardi
Description: Spotted on the shelves of a local supermarket, this Bacardi bottle cleverly plays on the brand’s famous bat logo, with smaller bats having been added to the printed label to create limited-edition Halloween bottles.

Scarily healthy

Going green at Halloween

Skeleton crimes

Fang-tastic Jaffaween!


Designer: Jaffa Cakes / McVitie’s
Description: We have all seen companies rebrand products to fit in with the spooky season, but what about rebranding Halloween altogether? This is exactly what McVitie’s did for its famous Jaffa Cakes product, which, in addition to adopting scary packaging, also renamed itself, and the holiday, to Jaffaween!

Counting down to Halloween


Designer: Ferrero USA
Description: We’ve all heard of Advent Calendars for Christmas, but what about a spooky countdown for Halloween? Ferrero USA launched a ’31 Days of Halloween’ countdown calendar to mark the lead-up to the big day, with each door revealing a different treat from Ferrero. For each calendar sold, Ferrero USA donated $31 to charity.

Mars attacks


Designer: Mars

Voo-Dew


Designer: Mountain Dew

Blood orange!
