With pumpkins and carving kits at the ready, Manchester is once again gearing up for Halloween. At Creative Spark, that can only mean one thing… the Little Print Shop of Horrors is back!

Returning for the fifth year running, this year is all set to be their best ever. Sticking to a half-decade of tradition, Creative Spark team will compete against each other to create horror-themed posters.


This year’s theme is ‘Award Winning Horror Movies,’ and once the finished prints are finalised they’ll be put up for sale for you to buy from their website.

Flexing both their collaborative and competitive muscles, the Little Print Shop of Horrors is their way of showcasing up-and-coming illustration and print talent, both internally and within the wider creative industry, whilst raising money for Forever Manchester.

Creative Spark founder and Creative Director Neil Marra is a Forever Manchester Ambassador, and he’s confident this year can be the strongest Little Print Shop of Horrors yet.

Neil Marra, founder and Senior Partner of Creative Spark, said: “It came around due to us being proud of our roots, and although we are expanding globally we wanted to celebrate the fact that it all started in this amazing city.

“We wanted to support a local charity that helps local people.

“The guys at Forever Manchester are amazing and do an amazing job, we are really proud to be working with them again and hope to continue in the future.”

So what’s in store for this year? Well, alongside Creative Sparks’ team entries, they’ve lined up some special treats  to make this the best Print Shop yet. Creative Spark will be teaming up with PR and content marketing giants Brazen PR, illustration agencies like Jelly London, Handsome Frank and Illustrationweb. They will also be resurrecting best-selling pieces from years gone by to offer you more prints than ever before.

All the money raised will come to Forever Manchester, to support thousands of community projects in and around Greater Manchester.

All entries are now available to purchase on Creative Spark’s online print shop HERE .
