Busy Beaver has been making band buttons since the beginning— our very first customer was actually the band Guided By Voices. So when it comes to creating buttons for musicians and record labels, we’ve got 20 years of experience! If your band is looking for some new retail and promotional items for this coming tour season, check out our 3 reasons why you should button up with Busy Beaver:
Buttons Are One Size Fits All
Unlike t-shirts and other clothing merchandise, you don’t have to order lots of different sizes and cross your fingers that everything from the S-XL sells. Buttons are one size fits all, so you’ll always have the right size for your fans! Plus with buttons, fans don’t have to worry about washing their favorite band shirt every day. Buttons are always ready to go and can be flaunted at all times.
Making Buttons Is Easy
From ordering to designing to selling them, everything about buttons is easy. Button designs can be as simple as your band’s logo or photo. When you are on tour and run out of buttons, it’s easy to get a new order of buttons shipped to you fast. Once the order is placed, Busy Beaver can FedEx Priority Overnight ship your order to you so the buttons will be waiting for you in the next city you will be traveling to.
Buttons Create Fans
If your band is trying to build up a fan base, buttons are an easy way to help spread your name. Just pass them out at concerts or festivals— music fans love to collect band buttons and wear them around. Buttons are small, easy to wear or keep and fun to collect, and they’re a great way for fans to publicly display their love for your band.
Artist Steff Bomb, a long-time Busy Beaver customer and button enthusiast, has been collecting buttons since she was in middle school. “If I ever lost any of those, I would probably be more bummed out than if I got dumped by a thousand boyfriends,” she said. Wouldn’t it be cool to have your band be a part of the collections of such passionate fans?
