Are YOU ready for Halloween?!

Happy fall my DJ friends!


Are YOU ready for Halloween?!  I’ve been drawing pumpkins, witches, ghosts and trick-or-treaters for quite a while now (25 years)!  DJ Inkers definitely has plenty of not-so-scary smiles to help you create something BOOTiful.  My children are all Halloween freaks…spooky Halloween frame…but I’m going to be honest for a moment here.  Personally, I don’t like scary things, candy corn, too much sugar… or the boxes of costumes and false eyelashes that have stacked-up over the years.


But then came along my grandkids.  Wheeew!  They are TOO cute!


I’m quickly changing my tune about how much I like this holiday!  They’ve given me new inspiration in connecting to this fun time of year again.  I can’t help myself when I see sparkly princess shoes to match my granddaughter’s costume, I HAVE to buy them!  And my heart melts when I see each of my grandbabies (that can hold a crayon) enjoy our Fall Coloring Pages or bring home a school project featuring DJ Inkers.cute fall coloring pages for kids

I no longer just pass out candy to my little trick-or-treaters, but I like to give ART supplies and printed coloring pages from DJ Inkers.  This year, I’m passing out our kids Halloween scavenger hunt printableHalloween Scavenger Hunt!  I can’t wait to watch them laugh and run around as they try to find the first pumpkin or witch hat.  I’m so excited!


Have YOU created anything spooktacular for the fall holidays so far?  We just LOVE it when you share your ideas and inspiration!  Please comment here or show us some of your creations in our facebook group:  DJ Clip Art Creators.  🙂  We can’t wait to hear from you!


Hoping YOU have a magical Halloween season and a BOO-tiful Fall!

Giving special recognition should look and feel special.  Start with a simple border, add a bold & decorative heading and finish with a fun image or two to wrap things up nicely.  It’s not always easy finding a certificate or award badge that suits your event or the recipient.  Making your own lets you completely customize and have fun with it… so it will be exciting to give too!  Feel free to email us any time you need something specific.  We’re happy to help.  Click here to shop special occasion smiles…

Using a ready-made border makes this one quick and easy.  You can make your projects and reports really stand-out with a snazzy cover.  Adding a smile will certainly get your reader’s attention on family, office, school or club newsletters too.  We suggest DJ Border covers.

Why you’ll LOVE our NEW Favorite Fonts Collection!

Hello friends…


We are so glad it’s Friday.  Aren’t you?  We’ve had a busy week getting ready to release our NEWEST collection… DJ’s Favorite Fonts!  To create this collection, we have selected 10 of our very best fonts, then cleaned & updated them to perfection.  A few of these fonts have been around for 20+ years, and let’s face it… the technology has improved a lot!  So, now these fonts have that same classic DJ styles you love… but they’re so much better!


Now… some of these fonts (& their names) might look familiar to you… but these are brand new and improved versions of some older classics and newer favorites.  To make the differences very clear, we named these 10 fonts as version 2, so you can keep the original version, if you like.


You’ll find everything from cute to classy in this versatile collection of unique, hand-drawn lettering.  These 10 fonts were selected to give a broad range of uses & appeal… plus we LOVE and use them regularly.  We even converted them to Open Type (rather than True Type… which is more MAC friendly too).  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.


Our fonts have been making people smile for over 25 years.  Download our Favorite Fonts today  and you’ll see why… 🙂


Happy weekend everyone and smiles to YOU!
~the DJ crew

We love to TREAT our friends!

Hello friends…


We hope that you are really enjoying FALL this year!  Autumn is absolutely our favorite season… so full of color, change and fun holidays to celebrate!  Yet, it seems that each year, fall gets more & more overshadowed by Christmas and the upcoming holiday season.  So many store aisles are already full of pine trees and twinkly lights.  And while those things are lovely, we are not quite ready for that.  It’s not even Halloween yet!  So, if you visit DJ Inkers… our ‘halls’ will be decked in cobwebs, costumes, tricks & treats for a while yet. 🙂


Speaking of treats… we LOVE to treat our friends!  So, we’ve created a little coupon for you wonderful people:  30% off any one item!  We can’t tell you how much we appreciate your support… and your taking the time to read our posts and emails.  So shop for smiles before the witching hour on Halloween night… and when you’re ready to check-out, just enter coupon code:  blogtreat and click submit.  (You can do this on the ‘view cart’ page or the ‘check-out’ page.)  The cart will automatically apply the discount to the most expensive item.  Some restrictions apply.


Whether you’re looking for Halloween smiles, or looking further ahead… we hope you have fun shopping with us!  At DJ Inkers, you’ll find smiles for every season, holiday and theme… all year long.  Not to mention FREEBIES!  😉  Check- back often… because these are always changing.


We’ve got lots of fun NEW products in store too… like the whimsical Bones font and Day of the Dead clip art we used to make that coupon heart, above.  Maybe you’re looking for a fun way to set the mood for FALL with the family? 

Check-out this darling printable Fall Memory Game!  My kids LOVE it when we play games together.  All you have to do is print, cut and play!  This simple matching game is great for seasonal centers, activity day or learning fun at home.


Oh… and you can find a whole cute list of 15 seasonal family fun ideas in our FREEBIE section right now.  Enjoy!!!  Stop and smell autumn… crunch a few leaves… or indulge in your favorite Halloween candy.  🙂


Warm autumn smiles to YOU!
