Here are some pics of an original Phoenix Frankenstein Candy box then:

Oops! I screwed up on the "ingredients" side of the Frank box. The text placement is a bit different than all the others.

So then you just corrected Phoenix's error, that's all.

Maybe I'll get ambitious and fix it, some day.  :-\

It's time to resurrect this thread for 2019! This year's boxes are printed and ready for die-cutting and assembling. Right now I'm working on putting together the "stuffing," more of which is custom made this year and, hence, requires more time and effort than in previous years. I'll post previews soon.

In the meantime, I had the opportunity to travel to Chicago for a convention a couple weeks ago, and Svengoolie just happened to be signing autographs at a different event right across the street! Fortunately, I knew this in advance, so I had my box with his face on it that appeared on his show last year reprinted and asked him to sign it for me. He recognized it right away and said, "Are you the one who made these?" Then he called his handler over and said, "Remember when we had these on the show?" The whole exchange was filmed for his "Svengoolie on the Road" segment, but who knows how much, if any, will actually make the cut?

It was a really fun experience. I have the signed box in my vault, right next to the "Creature" box signed by Ricou Browning.

This thread is back from the dead (so to speak)! After spending a couple months literally not leaving the house (except to walk to the mailbox and back), I started thinking about what will happen if things are like this again (or still) come Halloween. Surely trick-or-treating won't be normal. Either areas are going to ban it altogether or parents are going to be too nervous to let their kids go. Which, of course, made me sad because I love designing Halloween candy boxes and fun packs to hand out each year.

Then I had an idea: What if someone came up with a sort of "trick-or-treat by mail" project that would send a free Halloween fun pack to kids who couldn't go trick-or-treating the traditional way? So that's what I'm doing! Here's a sample of what I plan the front to look like, plus a look at some of the things I've already designed for the inside and for use as donor incentives:









If anyone is interested in reading more about it (or supporting the initiative, which is 100 percent donor reliant), check out the project website: www.halloweenfunpack.com

Hope everyone here is having a monstrously good spring!
