Choose from one of the recommended event dates below, and download your week-to-week planner of event preparations.
You may have noticed that there are no recommended December dates this year. This is because, based on other school owners’ past experiences, we’re recommending holiday sales be held in November. Sales in December are competing with family visits, trips, and, most critically, the fact that by December most holiday shopping has already been done. Your sale can compete with Black Friday in November, but not with all the gift purchases your students and their parents have already made by the time December rolls around.
Spark interest in your event and create an advertising buzz by using this promotional material to show off your holiday-exclusive specials.
Customize and print the gift certificates below for a fun and unique way to raise interest in your holiday sale. Whether you give a few out before the event as prizes, or let parents buy them during the sale, gift cards guarantee that everyone gets exactly the gift they want, for a very happy holiday!

And there are so many more! Sublimation printing lets you add photo-quality images, with no extra cost for additional colors! Best of all, there is no minimum order for sublimation print custom items!
Sublimation printing is a digital printing method. It’s different than standard screen printing customization. When an item is screen printed, a custom image is painted onto the surface of the product. Below the layer of ink, the fabric is unchanged. However, in sublimation printing, the ink is heat-infused into the material to dye it.
Consolidate all of your students’ orders from your shopping event onto one sheet. After completing your Instructor Worksheet, place your order at CenturyMartialArts.com or call (800) 626-2787 to speak to a customer service representative.
TIP: Save more when you order more! After your holiday event, take advantage of volume discounts by ordering all of your items at once.
