Price Decrease on all our Card Products: 20th May 2021

Thursday, May 20th, 2021

We have massively decreased the price of all our card products…why?

Two reasons:

To give you a boost as we get back to normality, with live venues opening again; it will make your money go a bit further!

To promote the use of eco-friendly card products in our industry, which is historically  very plastic orientated.

The price drop includes single card wallets, double card wallets, lancing packs and digipaks.

All our other prices remain as they were, which is still very competative.

The Clock is Ticking for Music Festivals:29th April 2021

Thursday, April 29th, 2021

Life is slowly returning to “normal” in many sectors of life and in the business world.

The question mark over live music festivals is still looming large for this summer.

In particular relating to risk levels and whether insurance can be given to organisers to allow them to plan ahead.

Another BBC news article gives a good account of some of the issues relating to this.

A Customer’s Story: 22nd April 2021

Thursday, April 22nd, 2021

At the start of the first lockdown, I was furloughed and wanted to try do a project I had been wanting to do for years but never had the time for. Making a song a day for a whole month. So, I decided to make a song a day for thirty days. I was doing a masters in music innovation at Waterbear in Brighton at the time and thought it would also be interesting to write about for an upcoming essay.

The songs were uploaded daily to my bandcamp and I would post about them every day on social media and it was really lovely having a very small group of people keeping up with the project daily and getting feedback constantly and feeling like I was creating something original.

Anyway, people were asking if I would make a CD, and I wanted to see if I could keep the CD’s in ethos with the project. I had gotten really into the number thirty and I liked the symbolism of having thirty cds for thirty songs. I also loved how each day in the project I had to try create something new and so I wanted each CD to be new and differentand so I liked the idea of painting each one.

In the end it was difficult and challenging but really exciting seeing everyone getting unique CD’s! I also painted a lyric poster for every song so you would get a numbered print and cd. I sold them through Resident Music in brighton and sold out like 6 hours after putting it up for preorder! It was really rewarding.

I then made thirty days 2 and 3 and for the second decided to have the cd’s more conventionally made through your site but had custom badges and for the third I am going to put an order through soon for conventional CD’s again but will be making thirty unique hand made tiny zines with lyrics and drawings in them.
