In October, Print-on-Demand (POD) sellers have a golden opportunity to thrive with two major U.S. holidays: Columbus Day on October 9 and Halloween on October 31. Here's how to make the most of these occasions in under 250 words.

Columbus Day (October 9)

Columbus Day, a historical day for the U.S., brings families and friends together for picnics, BBQ parties, and hometown visits.

As a POD seller, tap into this market by offering Halloween-themed apparel, from fun T-shirts to autumn essentials like hoodies and leggings. Kids' clothing is especially popular.

Transform homes into spooky havens with ornaments, wall art, tapestries, and doormats. Boost sales with fun extras like mugs, stickers, and greeting cards.

For successful designs:

  • Halloween Symbols: Incorporate classic symbols like pumpkins, ghosts, bats, and bones.
  • Halloween Colors: Use eerie shades of orange, black, and other spooky colors.
  • Quirky Quotes: Add witty, funny, or thought-provoking Halloween-themed quotes.
