For retailers who sell NBM and Papercutz books:
Be a Monster! Sale and Costume Events
NBM & Papercutz invite your participation in our first Hallowe’en costume event and sale.
This offer is designed to allow you leeway in the kind of event you wish to plan.
Be A Monster!
Hold a Papercutz Costume Event at your store and receive an extra 5% on your next order that includes at least 12 scary Papercutz titles (in a total order of 20 units) including: Trondheim’s Monster series, Garfield v3 Catzilla, Tales From The Crypt, Nancy Drew Vampire Slayer, Hardy Boys’ Crawlin with Zombies, and Classics Illustrated’s appropriate titles! Take a photo or video with PZ titles in your customers’ hands and ask them to sign a release for publication.
Be A Monster!
Hold an NBM Costume event at your store and receive an extra 5% on your next order that includes at least 12 horror or true crime NBM titles (in a total order of 20 units) including: Trondheim’s Dungeon series, Boneyard, Inner Sanctum, or Rick Geary’s Treasury titles. Take a photo or video of your customers with these books in hand and ask them to sign a release for publication.
Or…take an extra 10% off your order for holding both events (concurrently is ok) for a minimum of 50 units, 24 of which need to be scary!
Extra special CONTEST deal! Turn either or both of these into a contest for your customers and receive a set of these books free to use as prizes!
You may hold a special party, or just take photos of your regular customers as they arrive in costume throughout the day. After chatting with retailers, those close to schools may be more interested in the Papercutz event, as kids may still be allowed (or encouraged) to wear their costumes to and from school.
Those close to evening Hallowe’en events may be more interested in the NBM side, with more adults on their way to a party.
And you may choose to combine or run both events. You need not use Wednesday October 31st for your event date.
The sale expires approximately on October 24th, depending on shipping time to your location from our Chicago warehouse. We strongly suggest early decision to make rush shipping unnecessary. Usual payment terms apply.
This is a great time to restock your general NBM and Papercutz backlists for less money!
The key to participation is the camera! Whether you take a video or still photos, we need all your lil’ monsters (or grownups) in their most scary outfits having a good time with our books!
We have ready-made flyers you can turn into handouts, and I will be happy to forward those to interested shops, as well as our photo/video release form and an excel list of available titles. I’ll see if Tumblr will allow this attachment - one of our sample flyers.
(Please note: you may also post your store photos on your web site and social media!)
We look forward to your participation and comments.
