Over the past few years that we've been in business, we've noticed that one thing bands often need a hand with is their artwork. Because we're not all art/design professionals, we've brought one in to assist bands with all of their art-related needs. Aside from helping you resize, recreate, or redesign your logos, t-shirts, etc., our in-house art expert is also available to do custom designs for your CD, t-shirt, or any other merchandise you're ordering. If you're interested in getting your art done right, let our creative genius take the reins and work with you on your next design. You'll also have the logo/design in a professional format for all future purposes, so it's worth the investment. Price for art/design is $35/hour.

The air is only going to get colder from here, so we've decided to extend the beanie special! Help your fans cruise warmly through winter, while also getting promotion from a prime location: their heads. Take advantage of this unique seasonal product at a price that can't be beat!
24 beanies for $99
50 beanies for $199

Includes one color ink and has a 10 day turnaround time.
