March is month people don’t usually think too much about because it’s in-between seasons. It’s a shame because it’s full of fun holidays! Use these holidays to inspire new designs for your store. We picked out a few of our favorites for our March 2022 print-on-demand trends report!

March 2022 Print-On-Demand Trends Report

March 1: Mardi Gras

Is there a more famous carnival than Mardi Gras? Mardi Gras is French for “Fat Tuesday” and the festival was originally about eating fatty foods before fasting for the Lenten season. Nowadays, it’s more known as a giant party with beads, colorful costumes, parades, and balls.

Product Inspiration

Mardi Gras is well known for drinking, masks, feathers, beads, and the colors purple, gold, and green. You’ll have plenty of ideas for designs no matter what product you choose. The important thing to remember is that Mardi Gras is most connected to fun!

A product that would be great for Mardi Gras 2022 is a facemak! Covid is not going away but that doesn’t mean people can’t have fun, they just need to do it safely.

Face Mask Details

  • Made of 100% polyester microfiber fabric, single layer
  • Has UPF 35
  • Machine washable
  • Bleachable with no color fade
  • All products are made to order
  • Not a medical-grade mask
Blue face mask

Marketing Inspiration

Because Mardi Gras is such a social event, it makes sense to use social media to promote any Mardi Gras-themed products. Share fun facts about the history and traditions of this carnival with your audience to get a conversation started.

Once the conversation has started make sure to post a lot of pictures of your products, especially if you or a friend are using the product. Having products in everyday situations makes it easier for customers to picture themselves with the product. This is especially true of apparel products.

March 8: Be Nasty Day

This is one of those fun holidays you’ve probably never heard of. While being a celebration of nastiness, it’s actually a light-hearted holiday. It’s meant to be a break from being polite when you don’t want to be, like being rude to someone that is rude to you.

It’s a day to say “No.”

Product Inspiration

Have fun with this holiday, release your inner grump. Again, it’s meant to be a light-hearted holiday, so watch the line between grumpy nasty and truly nasty.

Design an art print so your customers can show off their nastiness every day! A fun print can add a little more personality to their home. Check out our article about using wall art to decorate your home for more info.

Marketing Inspiration

This is a holiday that’s perfect for social media, it’s funny, it’s silly, and people will love it. Create posts about what you would do on Be Nasty Day and ask your audience what they would do. Make some funny jokes or talk about your favorite nasty moments on TV or in movies. Doing all this will catch your audience’s attention, which leads to more eyes on your products.

As always with social media, make sure to have a lot of clear, high-quality photos sprinkled throughout all your posts up until that holiday.

March 16: National Panda Day

Who doesn’t love pandas? They’re so cute and fluffy! They’re probably one of the most well-known endangered animals on the planet. There are two different types of pandas. Giant pandas are the black and white ones that we know and love. Then there are the smaller red-brown pandas known as red pandas.

The reason these fluffy bears are endangered is due to habitat loss, farming, fur hunting, and poaching. Pandas live around 15 to 20 years in the wild, though surprisingly, those in captivity live a little longer.

Product Inspiration

Marketing Inspiration

For this holiday, you should use both social media and an email campaign. Social media is good because who doesn’t like looking at cute panda photos and videos? Use a panda’s cuteness to your advantage and get as many eyes as possible on your profile and store.

An email campaign can let you build up excitement towards the holiday. Share facts about pandas and why they’re endangered. Not only are you sharing important facts, but you’re constantly staying in their inbox. Make sure to mention that you have panda products or a panda-themed collection.

March 27: International Scribble Day

Maybe you start to drift during a class or meeting, you start to scribble to stay awake. Maybe you like to scribble as a warm-up before you start designing.

International Scribble Day is all about encouraging creativity and making art no matter what skill level you have. It’s a new holiday, being created in 2019 by Diane Alber, who is the author of I’m NOT Just a Scribble. It’s a children’s book about kindness, acceptance, and encourages kids to make art.

Product Inspiration

While the holiday is for kids to express themselves, that doesn’t mean adults can’t join. In fact, maybe adults need to scribble more than kids. It’s easy to forget that you can do things just for the fun of it when there are so many other things demanding your attention.

Create a design that encourages your customers to unleash their inner artist. Our journals are perfect for making art on the go. Use your own scribbles on the cover of the journal or use inspirational quotes about making art.

Also, scribbles and doodles are one of the top graphic design trends for 2022, so you can keep this design beyond the holiday.

Journal Details

  • Hardcover journal is made luxurious soft-touch laminate matte finish
  • Hardcover has 150 lined pages
  • Softcover journal is made of soft matte laminate
  • Softcover journal has round corners
  • Softcover has 200 pages
  • Both versions have perforated pages
  • Design is on both front and back of both versions
Journals covered in scribbles

Marketing Inspiration

Have fun marketing this holiday. Create two different designs for the journal and create polls about them on your social media platforms. Show off each design and see which one your audience likes best. By interacting with your audience, you gain more attention from others. Who knows? Maybe you’ll learn more about your audience and get inspired with new design ideas.
