We all know CDs and shirts are a must have for every band at every level of marketing, but if you want to give your fans something novel but really affordable…something they’d want to show off because it’s too awesome yet so cheap, here are some truly awesome, blog-worthy, share-worthy, affordable band merch ideas that won’t cost you more than a dollar. Actually, they’re so cheap you should just give them away for promotion. And in case you’re wondering, yes we make merch, too.
Custom Band Stickers
No band should go on tour without stickers. It’s so affordable yet it’s not cheap. Just make sure you print from a decent manufacturer to make sure your stickers look professional. This is an inexpensive item so it’s a big no-no to make it look cheap. You can give this away to your fans and to everyone you know without making your pockets cry.
Price Estimate: $0.20- $0.40
Custom Temp Tattoos
Stickers are a classic but temp tattoos are definitely waaaay cooler! Your fans would surely be delighted to see something so novel yet so cheap on your merch table. Just look at how the girl above (via) looks all bad-ass and sexy with the addition of the temp tat. We highly recommend it.
Price estimate: $0.10- $0.20 (minimum of 1000 pieces) _______________________________________________________________
