Over the past year, we've studied a handful of bands and have tried and tested different methods to make buying and selling merchandise easier. We've worked the table at shows, we've interviewed musicians, and we continually make changes to our solutions. The Shaggy Badger Pro is the product that we've created to not only help bands make more money selling merchandise, but to also help them focus on what really matters - the music. This solution has been proven to boost sales by at least 25%, along with other benefits. Set to launch on May 30th, here's a little look into what's in store:
Buying and selling band merchandise can be very complicated and time consuming. Finding the right products for the right price, taking on the risk of not being able to sell enough to make good money, and keeping track of inventory are all examples of the types of problems that bands face. For example, if you spend too much money upfront buying merchandise, you are left with inventory you can't sell, and your band loses money. On the other hand, if you don't buy enough or you run out of a product at your show show, the band misses out on a several sales opportunities.
The Shaggy Badger Pro is the solution for bands looking to optimize their merch sales, become more organized and efficient, and gain more loyal fans and followers. Some key benefits of the Pro include:
- Automatically keeps track of inventory - tells you when it's time to order more
- Takes care of fulfillment, shipping and handling, and customer service for your online store as well as orders from the point of sale.
- Allows you to sell even when you run out of physical inventory at shows. Run out of XLs? Ship one to your customer on the spot!
- Gives fans at the show the option of shipping their order to them. Don't want to carry around a poster or a bag? Ship it to them!
- Provides reports on best-selling items, customer information and more
- Automatically builds your email list

- If my band already has products and we love our merch providers, is Pro still right for us?
-Of course! All we would need is the artwork so we can duplicate the product you guys already have. This allows us to fulfill your online orders without messing with the relationship you have with your printer.
- What's the difference between this and a service such as Bandcamp?
-Services like Bandcamp don’t take care of your fulfillment (i.e. shipping your products). These services also don't give bands the option to connect their online store to their point of sale, so you can’t automatically track inventory and sell product even when you run out at shows. Shaggy Badger is the only company to offer that online platform with fulfillment services.
- Can we choose what products you print on?
-Totally! We have multiple distributors that we get products from and can find anything you want to print on.
- Can you cancel anytime?
-Of course! We offer a 100% money-back guarantee for the cost of your setup fee.
- How do you print your products?
-For larger quantities we use screen printing and for our on-demand or online fulfillment, we use digital printing.
- How much time does it take to get started?
-We can get you set up with Shaggy Badger Pro as quickly as 7-10 business days.
- How easy is it to set up?
-Extremely easy! Once purchased, we'd just need some artwork files and a count of the inventory you currently have, if any.
- If I don't have a website for my band, what happens?
-We will make you a page on our website that you have control of.
- What if we want merch but need a design?
-We have options to create designs and artwork for your products.
