Murder Mystery Themed Recipes
  • You Shall Not Pass - We have created a printout for you to hang in areas that you would like your guests to stay clear of!


These items are the best priced AND quality I've found on Amazon. Prime is free shipping. These items may be available at your local office supply too, but they will likely cost more.

  • Booklet Stapler - Bostitch Anti-Jam Long Reach Stapler, 20 Sheet Capacity, Adjustable, Durable, Black. This is our backup stapler if our booklet machine goes down. It was around $20. You can get a little cheaper but check the reviews first. Bostitch staplers are some of the best you can get and very reliable. Your local office supply may or may not carry these.

  • Staples - Don't forget these. You can get these for under $3 or go to your local office supply store. 

  • 2x4 Labels for name tags and organizing labels. This package has 100 sheets for around $13. Check the 10% off box!

  • Blank Business Cards - If you have an extra character packet or our Immortal Murders game, you will need to print business or spell cards on blank business card stock.

  • Parchment Paper - For Certificates, you will need blank parchment paper. We include the certificate design, so you don't need actual certificate paper. You can choose your own color and price from the selection.

  • Paper - Lastly you need printer paper. I love this eco paper. It's clean and bright and affordable. Paper has gotten so expensive! You get 3 reams for under $20.
