Merch has always been a good source of money for artists so it’s always a good idea to sell some if you’re a musician.
But you can’t just pick any merch. You gotta be strategic.
You see, some merch items rake in more money than others. And what’s interesting is that these merch items are actually one of the most affordable.
So do the right thing!
Wondering which merch items are affordable but really sell well?
I’m sure you do.

Keychains are quite common in many merch tables.
Last year, Styles was named as one of the musicians who make a lot of money from merch with a revenue of around $22.97 million.
One of the best selling merch he had was the Treat People with Kindness keychain which has a retail price of $14.99.
So don’t look down on keychains. They can actually turn you into a millionaire.
Stickers are one of the most affordable merch items to make.
Just like keychains, stickers are usually included in a musician’s merch line up. They are usually made of paper or vinyl and these are the cheapest materials you can have for a merch.
#3. PHONE CASES
Aside from protection, phone cases also add flair to our usual plain-looking phones. A lot of musicians have this on their merch stores so it’s a competition…but everyone’s got a phone and therefore, a phone case.
With the right design, your phone case will definitely urge fans to buy. Don’t forget to put some kind of branding onto the design. It’ll be a great advertising move.
This merch item might not be the cheapest, might not be the most unique (it’s a classic), but fans buy it.
And the thing is that they’re relatively easy to make. Just choose an artwork and choose the kind of paper you’ll be printing. It’s that simple having them, especially if you have a reliable manufacturer.
Try having at least three poster designs, one as standard and the other two as limited ones. The other two would surely get sold out in minutes.
