CASE STUDIES

WHAT WE CAN DO.

Ufomammut

To celebrate their 20th anniversay, Italian stoner doom legends, Ufomammut, chose the full range of our services to manufacture lavish LP and CD boxsets including band's full discography on respective formats, along with massive books, additional posters and patches.

We also created the official webstore for the band where the boxsets (bundled with exclusive merch, too) were available for pre-order before the release date and now are available for purchase directly from the stock in our warehouse.

On top of that, we also took care of custom merch printing for their XX anniversary tour. Part of the stock was supplied to a number of concert venues and part of it is sold through the same official webstore. Everything fulfilled directly to fans from our premises, on a daily basis.

Instant Classic

Krakow-based record label is a perfect example of a music company outsourcing 100% of its manufacturing, distribution and on-line sales to 8Merch.

We manufacture all Instant Classic releases (predominantly vinyl records and CDs) and produce all merch items (for online sales and official events), which are stored in our warehouse. We perform wholesale shipments to worldwide distributors and physical shops, fulfill retail orders from the official webstore we manage and mail out promotional copies to media outlets.

The label's official store (located at instant-classic.com) has been created by us and is fully managed by us, allowing fans across the globe to securely purchase products -very often limited pre-order vinyl color variations, unavailable in other stores.

David Duchovny

2019 saw the release of a new album from David Duchovny, entitled "Every Third Thought".

We were commissioned with the manufacturing of the full line of official merchandise related to this album. It included screen-printed T-Shirts, long sleeve hoodies, tote bags, embroidered snapbacks, but also state-of-the-art baseball long sleeve with embroidered signature on chest.

We also produced lavish hard-cover digibook with extensive 28-page booklet, which housed the newest album on compact disc. Plus a few less obvious merch items like koozies, canvas accessories totes and drawstring bags. Posters, stickers and enamel pins were also made to complete the collection.

We fulfill all fan orders from the official webstore we created and have maintained since.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I place a production order and not use direct-2-fan services?

Sure. We offer direct pressing & printing to many labels and artists, who then take care of distribution and order fulfillment on their own. You can order default packages for CD, vinyl records, audio cassettes, boxsets and merch items via this website or send us an email with details and specifications.

 

Can I use your e-commerce and warehousing, if I already have my products?

Of course. You can supply us with the merch items you already have produced. They will be stored in our warehouse and orders will be fulfilled. For any future releases you can either continue with shipping them to us or use our production services for that purpose.
