What are some of the coolest merch items you've seen from bands? And are stickers a good promotional thing to have for a band or just cds and shirts?

Also is PAYING for facebook promotion on their website cheating or?

What. Again with this? Why not just keep it in your other thread?

OT: Eh. I like some band merch, but there's never really been one that absolutely wowed me into buying it or anything.
Maybe except for this:

They came to my local mall so I went and bought this shirt. Got it signed too. By far the best shirt they've ever sold. Can't find it anywhere anymore. Real cool dudes, too.

Edit: Oh, and this:

I would say just CDs and shirts. You can have stickers but they gotta be free.

Didn't you say that you had a stuffed fox that you would occasionally fuck?

man, I'm so sad I made this thread now after seeing those shake shack burgers. I would buy an extra just to fuck it while I eat its siblings. then i'd eat that one too.

I am so sorry for my mother's "escapades"...
Shirts and CDs/Vinyl (limited runs of vinyl are very popular with people who collect that stuff). Make pins and give em out free. Stickers are good too. They should be cheap, like a dollar, but if someone buys something else feel free to give them one for nothing.

Also, if you can figure out a fun, unique thing to sell as merch that can sometimes be fun.

bookmarks :3

actually, I'd totally buy that. I'm always wearing out my bookmarks with the terrible way I treat books i'm reading.

Much better priced I'd guess compared to the other crap. I mean t-shirts are £25 now, wtf, even at low key gigs.

at this one devin townsend gig they were selling hq prints of album covers on card or a metal sheet. I only had enough cash for the metal one and the queue/crowd was so huge to get in and out of I couldn't be asked to go to a cash point and come back for a card print. Now most places have the sense to keep handheld card machines handy (because who the hell carries £40 in cash just for a hoodie!)

I will almost always buy the vinyl of the new album of band I'm seeing... that is if I don't have it already. I'm also a sucker for posters/key chains.

It actually encourages you to bring whiskey to shows.

Murder by Death came out with red one piece Longjohn/pajamas that were pretty sweet.
