Everyone loves the idea of receiving a Beer Advent Calendar and with the rise of interesting and alternative Advent Calendars being sold across the land, there has never been a better time to get your business involved.
Here at Beer Box Shop, we have created a uniquely designed Beer Advent Calendar for our customers to fill with their own range of beers and more. These filled advent calendars are then perfect for selling over the counter in your breweries, bottle shops, taprooms and anywhere else that comes to mind (lots of our customers attend Christmas markets throughout November and December).
The purpose of this blog is to showcase to you our own Advent Calendar Design, however before we get to that let's take a brief look at the history behind Advent Calendars.
The first practical advent calendar traditions hail from Germany, as so many of our modern Xmas traditions do. Days were counted down through the use of chalk markings on walls as well as the burning of a candle each day. The first known hand made advent calendar was created in 1851. Printed Advent calendars then began to appear from around 1902 but the innovation of adding small doors for each day did not occur until the 1920s, pioneered by Gerhard Lang from 'Reichhold & Lang' printing offices. The popularisation of the advent calendar as we know it today is often credited to American President Dwight D. Eisenhower who released photos of his grandchildren opening one during his terms as President and by 1958 chocolate-filled Advent Calendars were readily available to the masses.
The modern surge in more exciting and valuable advent calendars is where our design for a 24 Beer Advent Calendar comes in. We want our customers to be able to offer and therefore upsell their beers as part of this lucrative Christmas industry. Our design is simple to assemble and can be loaded with bottles, cans, merchandise, snacks and anything else you wish to include!
Each of our Advent Calendar Boxes is provided flat packed in 3 separate parts.
Constructing the Outer Box
The first step towards the finished 24 Beer Advent Calendar is to assemble the outer box. This will house the tray, dividers and all bottles & cans etc upon completion.
Advent Calendar Tray Assembly
Our advent calendars feature a large tray that, when assembled, will form the base for the contents of the calendar. The tray secures the dividers in place and allows the content to be slid into the outer box with ease.
Pre Assembled Divider Construction
All of our Christmas Beer Advent Calendars come with a pre-assembled set of internal dividers. These go on to create the individual pockets using for housing your beers and more!
Filling your Advent Calendars
This is the fun part! Now the tray and dividers are fully assembled along with the outer box, you can start filling the advent calendars ready for sale.
Following the above steps, you will be able to construct and fill your very own Beer Advent Calendars with ease, ready to sell in the run-up to Christmas!
