No one knows bands quite like Sub Pop records. Founded in 1986, Sub Pop has introduced America to a cavalcade of alt-rock superstars including Nirvana, Soundgarden, Fleet Foxes, The Postal Service, Sleater Kinney, The Shins, Beach House and more. When it comes to getting the word out about new bands, Sub Pop knows that it takes more than just great music– it also takes great merch.
They always help us make the coolest stuff Sasha Barr, Art Director, Sub Pop Records
Merch just so happens to be Busy Beaver's bread and butter. For the past 4 years, Busy Beaver has provided Sub Pop with button and magnet packs for a variety of band tours, album releases and more. "Busy Beaver currently makes the buttons/button packs and magnets to sell in our SeaTac airport store and online in our web store," say Art Director Sasha Barr. What he values the most is the creative back-and-forth that helps translate a musician's work into eye-catching products. "Busy Beaver is terribly communicative– in the best way possible! They always help us make the coolest stuff."
Sub Pop has made it their goal to make their bands' merchandise as unique as their bands' music. And when they need something fresh and new, Busy Beaver's custom options rise to the occasion. "I am really happy with the button packs Busy Beaver helped us create," says Barr. "It’s not something they typically offer, but I asked if it was possible and they made it happen!" When it comes great merchandise for Sub Pop, Busy Beaver is anything but sub par.Next Story
