How to Get Creative with Cardboard Ballot Boxes and Raffle Drums

There are a number of creative things you can do with cardboard ballot boxes and raffle drums. Depending on the type of box or drum, these decorative accessories can be used in a variety of settings, from school elections to workplace break rooms to hospital waiting rooms to charitable balls. But where to begin? If you’re at a loss for ideas, the following step-by-step guide will help you and your team design the perfect creative ballot boxes, donation receptacles, raffle drums, or suggestion boxes. Keep reading to learn more.

Consider Your Event
The design of your box will depend on the type of event you’re holding, any specific theme that is being used in the décor or promotion of that event, or the simple location of the box. If you are using a suggestion box to engage customers, for example, it would be helpful if the colors and font mirrored the colors and font used throughout the store and in other branded materials. If you’re using a raffle drum to raise money at a charitable event, on the other hand, the design may complement the décor of the evening or match the colors used to represent that cause. Pink raffle drums and donation boxes would be ideal for events raising funds and awareness for breast cancer charities, for example.

Different Ways to Get Creative
Simply coordinating with your theme or matching with your branded colors is a good start, but if you really want to get people’s attention with your ballot boxes or raffle drums you’re going to need to get creative. While you may have an old wooden box with a hole in it sitting around somewhere, this is hardly going to leave a lasting impression. Instead, consider using new corrugated cardboard boxes for various events and purposes, to give a fresh and creative look based on the season or other timely factors. Here are just a few creative ideas:

  • Ballot boxes for school elections that feature the mascot and other fun images
  • Charitable collections that advertise corporate partnerships with related companies
  • Employee suggestion boxes that include positive/inspiring messages for the team
  • Entry boxes with matching game wheels that boost morale for workplace settings
  • Prize drop games designed around the theme of a convention or trade show
  • Raffle boxes with the ticket wheel attached and a party theme evident in the design
  • Suggestion boxes that encourage filling out surveys in exchange for a contest entry

How to Place an Order
Whether you’re interested in ordering cardboard ballot boxes or any other type of custom-designed display, you’ll need to start by submitting a design idea. Then Creative Displays Now will create a prototype, and (assuming your team approves) they will being the printing and manufacturing processes. Completion times will vary depending on the size and complexity of your order, but you shouldn’t have to wait long for the cardboard ballot boxes that suit your needs.
