Unique Band Merch Ideas That Can Make Your Fans Go Wild.


As we’ve said again and again and again, the best way for artists to survive these days is to diversify the source of income. Band merch are a must for artists to thrive especially now that CDs are not very reliable to produce enough income for the full-time musician. But don’t just sell the usual merch, sell crazy, one-of-a-kind merch that people will talk about. Not only are they fun to make, they can also make your fans thrilled and will definitely make people talk. As a merch manufacturing company, we’ve seen it all. Here are some of the more unique band promotional items that we recommend:

MUSIC BOX MERCH

Here is Foo Fighter’s wind-up music box. If you’re a fan, this will surely make you jump out of your seat and buy at least a dozen. It’s not very cheap to make but it’s a novelty item that is sure to be a bestseller. What’s wonderful about this merch is that it’s something that doesn’t lose its charm. Sell it 10 years from now and people will still buy it.

PUZZLE MERCH

Another adorable merch you must add to your collection. Make sure your artwork is something that can be considered awesome or else, what’s the point? This is pretty cheap and easy to make. Just don’t make 1000-piece puzzles. That’s too much!;-)

FOOD MERCH

Who says you can’t sell food at your merch table? Nobody! There are some musicians who sell all kinds of food from M&Ms to hot sauce. Here are some yummy band merch. If you’re someone like Katy Perry, sell lollies or cotton candy in a foil packaging. If you’re a punk rock band, you can maybe sell kick-ass hot sauce or scary-looking gummy candies. Whether this works for you or not depends on your branding as a musician and your marketing strategy. Which, of course, depends on what type of fans you have.

LEGO BAND MERCH

Since everyone is crazy about Lego, why don’t you surprise your fans with your very own Lego model? This is a Lego set of U2. It won’t be that cheap but there are lots of good manufacturing companies that can help you make these cool collector’s items at very affordable prizes.

CUSTOM PRINTED DRUM STICK OR GUITAR PICK

These are actually classic band merch but just in case you still don’t have them, these are still awesome promotional products that sell. Fans love this because they’re dirt cheap and not too bulky or fragile. Just perfect items to carry around during concerts.

Whatever merch idea you have in mind, we can make them for you at prices you (and your fans) can easily, easily afford. Inquire here.
