Official Launch of ¡Viva! MerchToday marks the official launch of ¡Viva! Merch. A dedicated team of individuals that provide a "one-stop shop" for merchandising needs, as well as design/logo branding, online store builds, & iPhone/Android app needs. The staff at ¡Viva! Merch consist of seasoned musicians, screen printers, designers, & tech-savvy individuals who understand the wants/needs of bands, labels, & clothing brands -- big or small. The underlying mission: providing an alternative to the big guys, while maintaining an independently owned operation run by musicians who truly recognize the demands of like-minded musicians & businesses in the industry. Whether you are a band, or company, that needs 36 shirts or 10,000 shirts, ¡Viva! Merch prides themselves in providing the same customer service & quality on their work at any size.

No more over-priced merchandise. No more three to four week turn times. No more battling to get a response from the company that provides your main source of income. ¡Viva! Merch will help with designs, give advice, and work with you to make sure your product is the best it can be, at a price that will increase your bottom line.

With 10+ years experience under their belts as musicians who have toured & relied on merchandise as a means for living, ¡Viva! Merch whole-heartedly understands that; being a definitive key ingredient to the foundation of the company. Over the years they have seen what works, and what doesn't work, in first-hand experiences. Now, those experiences and their knowledge has carried out into the creation of ¡Viva! Merch.

Whether you're looking for printed apparel, posters, banners, backdrops, stickers, business cards, or anything you can think of (..well, almost anything) - ¡Viva! Merch has officially opened their doors to you, your visions, and your needs.

Through October 31st, "Like" the ¡Viva! Merch Facebook page & a 10% discount will be applied to your order(s)!

this is a little different than merch store or clothing line, it's a way to help out bands developing their own merch and what not

I don't get why everyone does have a clothing line. I don't know his stake in Lost and Loveless. At least he's doing this and not touring on the same 8 DRUGS songs at least.

Did you read the press release at all? It's not a clothing line. It's a merch company.

And why so cynical? Everyone has a clothing line because people will buy their shit.

Ya I know what it is. Was talking about Lost & Loveless. It felt close enough to discuss at least.

It's not ''cool'', just a way to have a little income and to help younger artists have a stronger brand.
