The Pumpkin Masters® website offers a variety of free pumpkin carving patterns (downloadable as PDF files), as well as a wealth of information, including carving tips and recipes.
The company’s mission “is to make products that make celebrating Halloween easier, safer and more fun for all ages.”
More than 60 years ago, Paul Bardeen, a Racine, Wisconsin engineer who liked to demonstrate pumpkin carving, invented a pumpkin carving method using patterns and small saws. His children carved intricate pumpkins and carried them door-to-door to show the neighbors their creations. In 1986, as a tribute to their dad, the kids created a pumpkin carving kit to share with other families.
Twenty years after Pumpkin Masters sold its first pumpkin carving kit, it was added to the Signature Brands, LLC family, which continues the Pumpkin Masters tradition of creating products that change the way families carve pumpkins and to create products that enhance Halloween traditions. Pumpkin Masters products are sold in a wide variety of retail stores.
