They also have a new "Shimmer Collection" that have a pearlized finish that give the M&M's a sparkling look. The non-printable colors are black, brown, blue, red, and teal.
Next you will create your message. You can personalize your M&M's with 2 different messages, with 2 lines on each side of the M&M and with up to 8 characters per line. For face prints, you will need to upload a clear photo and have the choice of 3 different messages with 2 lines and 8 characters. Depending on the occasion, use your creativity when deciding on a message that pertains to the person or event where you will be giving your personalized M&M gifts.
Choose your packaging. You can pick from bags & favor packages, gifts sets such as mugs and dispensers, or bulk boxes if you plan on repackaging the M&M's yourself. The fancier your package, the more it will cost you.
To finish up your order, select the quantity and click "Add to Cart" button, and confirm payment method. That's it! You have created personalized M&M's.
