9. Keep Assembly Simple
Some fan and spirit items will require light assembly, such as noisemakers or more elaborate headgear. If you're working with such items, it's in your best interest to keep assembly as simple as possible. For example, Taylor suggested making sure all inflatables can be filled via mouth, as opposed to by straw or another means, even if the other means is included in the packaging.
10. Account for Weird Shapes
Fan items like megaphones or noisemakers have unconventional shapes that can complicate decoration, especially larger designs that involve something like a wrap effect. "A lot of people have trouble printing on a thing as funny-shaped as a megaphone," said Denny. He recommended finding a supplier, such as Garyline, that has the special equipment required to meet your decoration needs.
