Top 10 products to stock your merch stand

Tagged with:

So you’re getting ready to head out on tour, and it’s time to get your online store and merch stand suitably stocked.

With so many options available, it can be hard to know what products to go for, so to give you some inspiration here are 10 of our top products for bands.

1) T-shirts

You can’t talk about band merch without mentioning the classic band tee. They’re a merch stand staple, and rightly so! When picking your custom t-shirts, it’s important to make sure the style, sizes and colours you choose reflect what your fanbase want.

2) Hats

Our custom caps are a firm favourite with bands and record labels, getting their name, logo or album title embroidered on the front, to keep themselves ahead of the merch game.

When the temperature drops, then custom beanies are great for keeping your fans toasty in style.

3) Patches

From our raw edge patches to their more elegant, premium counterparts, patches are an awesome, low cost option that allowed your fans to pledge their allegiance on their jacket or bag. Why not try our oversized patches for that added impact?  

4) Plectrums

Custom plectrums are often used as freebies to give away at gigs as well as making a nice merch stand filler. As well as stocking your table, they’re perfect for adding a splash of branding to your set.

5) Stickers

Give them out with orders, sell them on your store, or sticker bomb everything in sight! Stickers are an awesome way to get your name out there. And let’s face it, who doesn’t love a sticker?

6) Enamel pins

This is one for your super fans. Giving them something to proudly add to their jacket, tote and add to their  pin collection and make them an official member of your fan club.

Classic button badges also make and awesome, cheaper alternative.

8) Zines

Try something a little different and get creative with your very own custom zine. Shout about your story, illustrate your song lyrics or just use it as an excuse to collaborate with people you love. Zines are a awesome, low cost addition to your store.

9) Tote bags

Pop your design on the front of a tote bag and you’ve got an awesome walking advertisement with the potential to be seen by thousands of people on any given day.

10) Koozies

Who wouldn’t want to see their fans kicking back and enjoying a cold can from your very own custom koozie?!
