Merchandising

Do you want a truly awesome t-shirt? Hey, I can arrange this for you.

I can get to some of the greatest shirt designers in the music industry. My friend’s 32+ year old company takes care of merchandise for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Elvis Presley Enterprises, the Loveless Cafe and their popular gift shop, TomKats, the Opryland Hotel, Genesco, the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium, Riders in the Sky, and a huge number of touring acts.

You can go ahead and slap something on a white t-shirt if you want. That may be all you can afford. You might even accept the fact that your shirt will get worn once or twice but will quickly work its way to the bottom of the stack. But what if you really want something that your friends and fans can and will wear for years — well, think about your own favorite t-shirts (I’m talking about those worn out ones that you reach for every weekend) and why you hang on to them.

I want you to know that a cool shirt isn’t that much more expensive than a plain one, maybe a quarter to a dollar per shirt more. A good t-shirt designer knows how to create with screen printed products in mind. They also know how to build a brand into a design. I do not do this kind of design work myself, but I deeply admire the skill it takes to do it well. Really good designs show up frequently at my friend’s company. 

There’s no question that a cooler looking shirt will sell better for you — and for a better price. With just one or two ink colors and the right design, you can have a shirt that will keep turning up years later. And it will have made you a little money.

If you want great merchandising — with art designed the right way  — at a competitive price, please get in touch with me and I’ll see to it you get prompt attention. This company has been my client for nearly three years and I’m in their office every week. I like the way they do business and the way they treat their customers, so I happily recommend them.

Let me know if you’d like an intro. I’ll help you get the best price and the best design.
