Pringles Prints™ launched in July 2004 with a 3-month back-to-school in/out promotion featuring Trivial Pursuit Jr. This partnership between P&G and Hasbro was the first for Prints and negotiated by Stafford.


The partnership agreement with Hasbro was executed at the corporate, not brand level. It provided the framework to activate multiple-promotions across multiple brands.

This partnership also provided Stafford the opportunity to negotiate in-store activation with Toys “R” Us (see below).
