Record Store Partner Benefits
Through Vinyl Shirt Club, our goal is to bring awareness back to analog music and the independent record stores that house them with our own form of subscription -- one that celebrates the vinyl culture and record stores like yours.
Our hope is that we can do a small part in keeping the record store boom booming.
Members who join the the Vinyl Shirt Club will receive t-shirts delivered to their mailbox monthly with some of the best record store logos from all over the world!
A different logo will be featured every month, making each month's shirt a first pressing.
We are looking for great record store logos and stories to feature each month through the Vinyl Shirt Club.
Will your record store be next?
Vinyl Shirt Club provides exposure and free marketing to the featured record store each month with a 360 degree approach using all types of media.
We print all shirts to ensure consistently high quality for our members.
We incur all costs in additional design work and setup needed as well as all costs necessary to print and ship the shirts. Your cost is $0.
Along with having our members around the world wearing your shirt everywhere, you will receive the following:
- Print - Posting of an article and an interview, either video or audio depending on the scenario, onto our blog with your story and the roots of your record store. We include all contact information and links to your website and social media profiles.
- Audio - Audio interview posted on our soon-to-be-released podcast.
- Email - Emails blasts to our database promoting your record store throughout the month, including any additional information or promotions you would like to offer our members.
- Social Media - Facebook and Twitter posts throughout the month linking to the blog post about your store.
- Press Release - Press release of your record store and shirt of the month coupled with a press release to local publications in your area promoting your store (unfortunately, we can make no guarantees of any articles that may run based on this release, but we will do our best!)
- Traffic - We encourage our members to visit each store when travels take them to your town and spread the word about record stores featured in the Vinyl Shirt Club
- Online Sales - If you offer sales online, we encourage purchases online as well.
- Shameless Self Promotion - As always, promotion through your own channels that you are featured in the Vinyl Shirt Club is a great way to share something new and exciting.
- Buying Power - Since we are printing a high volume of shirts, there is an opportunity to purchase additional shirts for your store at our cost, which may be lower than what you are paying elsewhere for a much better quality shirt. (After the initial purchase, you may order additional shirts at any time with a minimum quantity of 24 tees)
All we need from you is a high resolution logo and we take it from there. We obtain your approval on final artwork and t-shirt design before printing. Remember, we will never reproduce, alter, or use your logo without express approval. That would just be uncool!
We hope to feature your record store in Vinyl Shirt Club very soon! If this is a venture that you want to partner with us on as we strive to help independent record stores thrive, apply here. We would love to chat with you!
