Merchandise is the key to optimizing your sales and getting your band noticed when you're playing local venues. Having physical copies of your music gives you the ability to promote your band before appearances, and you can make more money on gig night if you've got CDs and t-shirts to sell while everyone is still amped up from the performance and wants a little memento from the evening.
You don't need to have any design skills to create your merchandise, and you can get the ball rolling from the comfort of your own home.
Hire a Great Artist
Submit your proposal to a graphics platform like 99 designs. You need to give a description of the kind of design that you're looking for and then artists from all over the world will produce designs for you. Next, you give some feedback, look over any revised artwork, then pick the design that you like the best.
