Weekly Shows at Bands on a Budget/Cowerks Office have been a Huge Success!

Asbury Park is the perfect place for bands and companies created for bands, to live and breathe. Having met so many great musicians through doing their merch, we wanted to start building a community right out of our new office. There is now one more place in Asbury Park open to musicians; and after 3 consecutive weeks of shows, the event is really starting to grow. We love giving our customers a chance to play out, so please get in touch with us if you'd like to be booked for one of our events. Our new office is located at 630 Mattison Ave in downtown Asbury Park, or call 866-471-3868.

 

Bands on a Budget's other company CoWerks, is open for business!

As much as we all wish we could make a living just off of playing music (and some of you do!), most of us have day jobs too. If your job allows you flexibility to work from home or out of other offices, you may be a perfect candidate for Cowerks! Our new collaborative workspace is open to artists, entrepreneurs, commuters, and any one else that needs a space to work. The spacious and casual workspace offers plenty of desk space, a water cooler, internet, and hot coffee! Not to mention cool fellow cowerkers. And the best part is that it's commitment free. Rent a desk for a day, week, or month- part time or full time. For pricing, pictures, and more information, please visit www.cowerking.com.

Specials Continued!

In other BIG NEWS we've added a very special new product to our roster: CUSTOM GUITAR PICKS. The quality is top notch, and the price is unbeatable. Whether you want to use them yourselves, sell them at your merch table, or hand them out for promotion, this is an item that's both unique and useful. This may just be our new favorite merch item, and we're pretty sure it'll be yours too.

We offer custom printing on white and color delrin picks. Delrin is a very durable material that produces a nice bright tone.

100 CUSTOM GUITAR PICKS

One sided, one color printing on white OR color picks for $49
Two sided, one color printing on white OR color picks for $69

One sided, full color printing on white picks for $79

White picks come in the following gauges: .80mm, 1.00mm, & 1.26mm. For color derlin picks, the colors are determined by the gauge, and are available in: .50mm, .63mm, .73mm, .88mm, 1.00mm, & 1.14mm.

The second new product we've added to our roster this summer is CUSTOM EARPLUGS. Not only is this great for you, but your fans will thank you when they still have their hearing after the show! There's no better way to practice safe listening while also promoting the band making all that noise. We're offering custom pillow pouches with foam earplugs inside. The front of the pouch has a large imprint area for your logo, while the back has instructions for use!

100 ear plug pouches with foam earplugs for $99
Includes 1 color imprint

 

Trucker hats

Don't forget about trucker hats!
Band shirts are classic, but if you're looking for some apparel to sell to your fans that's a little different and maybe gives even better visibility, we've got an idea for you! Trucker hats. They're stylish, have great ventilation for the summer, and a big open space to screen print your logo onto. Available in 6 colors and includes 1 color ink screenprinting.
