Attention music fans who are also book nerds!!
Band bookmarks are the next hot merch item!
Alright. Maybe they aren’t the next big thing, but in an effort to add something new to the merch table, Canadian band We Were Lovers made bookmarks out of a photo booth session for a recent tour.
Why is this cool (besides the unique factor)?
1. It can’t cost that much to produce.
2. They could sell for cheap so the band could still make some coin from frugal minds like myself.
3. They are small and won’t take up that much extra space in the van.
4. These are hand made.. by the band! That makes them a little more special in the eyes of the fan. Not to mention, there is growing demand for hand-made goods (see Estsy.com for proof).
So the question is, what can you make that is cost effective and unique to add to your merch table?
