February 2011 Newsletter
Emerging from the continuous mounds of snow piling up around us, we're happy to deliver you some more specials, news, and blogs to help get you through what will hopefully be the last brutal month of the winter. Just think... only one more month of lugging your gear through slush before you can start thinking about your fans wearing your new band t-shirt without a jacket! We'll get there. In the meantime...
Bands often opt to pick up their t-shirts from our storefront, but with the weather we've been having, we've decided to come up with a special this month that offers FREE SHIPPING for your entire order. Here's how: Add either 200 or 400 custom guitar picks to your order and get free shipping on your order. *
Pricing for 1 sided, 1 color imprint custom guitar picks on color or white delrin:
200 picks for $79
400 picks for $129
Color of the pick is determined by the gauge
* free shipping does not apply to cd/dvds, postcards, or specials
Bands on a Budget Launches E-commerce Stores for Bands
We began focusing on Affordable Merchandising for Musicians.
We progressed by creating Indiecards, A Revolutionary Digital Download Platform to market your band or business.
We’ve arrived at a place where we can now offer E-commerce stores and fulfillment service for bands.
Asbury Park based merchandise company, BandsOnABudget.com, is pleased to announce the release of online web stores for bands. Not only can bands order their merch through BandsonaBudget.com, they can now sell it through the site too. This week marked the launch of the debut store for emerging artist, River City Extension of Toms River, NJ. Bands and fans are welcome to browse the store at rivercityextension.bandsonabudget.com. Look like something you’d be interested in for yourself? BandsOnABudget.com is currently accepting applications for beta-testers, which is suggested for bands, clothing companies, artists, and local businesses who want their own merch store on our platform. Before we allow for open enrollment sign ups starting this spring, we will offer first priority to our existing customers
Spring Semester Internships Available
Downtown Asbury Park has once again become a hub for all things creative. This unique community is a breeding ground for budding musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs, and 630 Mattison Ave is no exception. The storefront that offers bands custom merchandise at budget prices fittingly titled Bands on a Budget, along with the newly-opened collaborative workspace known as Cowerks, welcomes interns who want to get their foot in the door of Asbury Park. BandsonaBudget/Cowerks is more than a workspace; on weekends, the office converts to a live music venue, and the walls are filled with rotating art galleries. With a relaxed, fun environment, the internship offers an opportunity to gain experience in a variety of areas, including: marketing, graphic design, booking live music, coordinating a rotating art gallery, and coming up with innovative sales strategies relating to bands.
If you are interested in the music industry, marketing, art, sales, or Asbury Park, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All backgrounds and experience are welcome; interns looking for college credit encouraged to apply.
For more information on what we do, please visit bandsonabudget.com or cowerks.com.
