The hard part is over: you have learned to play. You have spent months in your parent's garage banging out riffs and writing songs and getting each note perfect. And your hard work has paid off with a few local dates. But how do you get your sound to the next level? The answer is not a new amp or even some well-placed groupies. You need custom t-shirts
Every great band, from the Stones to the Strokes has graced a custom t-shirt in their time. And now it's your turn. But first you have to create the perfect representation of your band. Do you have a logo? Look to your band's music and the personalities the members share and create something visual. Or hire a local artist. Perhaps you can take a picture of the house or street where your band got started, use the site of your first gig as inspiration or just make a drawing you think would look cool on a t-shirt.
Remember to keep it simple. The name of the band should be the star, so your fans can relate with one another. Custom t-shirts can be as much about looking cool as great marketing, especially where bands are concerned.
Another classic custom t-shirt idea for bands has been to commemorate a festival or streak of shows on the back of your shirt. So, for example, if you are doing a residency at a local bar, list the dates of the shows under the name of the bar. It is a great way for your band to get in on the rock star status early, getting your fans talking and creating some extra revenue for your band in the process.
Once you have your design and all the text worked out, you just need a great custom t-shirt company to help bring it all together. BenderShirts.com is here to help you keep it rocking on your way to superstardom.
