Your business begins with your fans. Our business expands with their friends and brings everyone back as a Repeat Customer.
As the Play it Forward Game begins to make traction, you can motivate your fans to bring 7 more friends to the Boombox by giving them what they want. Their friends will use your code however they probably won't care about your exclusive features for your fans.
Your contract with Modern Material will provide compensation agreement for commissions and royalties.
If you opt to create an Exclusive Collection with us, we will just require that you don't create the same type of Boombox Brand / Cassette Concept with anyone else to use your music as payment for their merchandise.
You can do anything you want with your own merch store. We are a fashion company not a merch company.
We aren't sure what type of agreements you will need us to sign with publishers or management. That's what the Application Fee is for. Send us what you need approved in order to sell you song title and album artwork printed on a Plastic Cassette Card.
We aren't actually selling the file of your song, just Collectible Packaging that no longer exists with digital material. You'll get paid monthly based on purchases made from your Cassette Listing.
Yes, this will be a part of an Exclusive Collection that can be created in addition to your Cassette Listing for the Boombox. You can contact us directly for more details.
We are not a Merch Company and we are not offering merch services. If you see Biker Jackets or Blazers that would be a cool, Limited Edition, merch item to take on tour or release as an Online Pre-Order, we'd love to create it for you if you send us approved artwork.
Once our collections are curated each artist will begin Online promotion for their Cassette Card for the Boombox Boutique. Collections will be released to cross-promote artists to the same fan and customer base at the same time.
If we have a Punk Rock Collection Curated, only Punk Rock style bands, biker jackets, stud belts, spike bracelets and distressed DIY T-shirts with Anarchy themes would be released while a West Coast Collection would feature LA bands, board shorts and skateboards.
We would not tell Punk Boombox customers about Skateboards or Skateboarders about Biker Jackets. Playlists would also be curated for the appropriate music genre.
Artists can purchase plastic cards with an image of a Cassette with their song information and Member Code printed on them. They cards are just like a gift card but like a coupon they will active exclusive discounts or Exclusive Material for the Boombox.
Artists can purchase a wholesale package and sell the cards on tour for $0.99 or give them away as a marketing promotion.
Once a card is redeemed the artist will receive a commission based on the amount paid. Commissions will be paid monthly on Boombox sales.
Exclusive Collections will be priced to provide the artist with 50% of the Retail Price.
After an Artist's fans purchase a Boombox with a Cassette Code, they will be able to share the code printed on a card with their friends for the Play it Forward game. The code will provide 7 more Plays with 1 Player in the group of 8 winning a FREE BOOMBOX DEMO for next season and a NEW CODE to activate the next Play it Forward session.
A Cassette Card is a plastic card that looks just like a gift card. It will have an Artist's Song printed on it with an exclusive discount to our Boombox Boutique or Exclusive Material created by the artist.
This is our way of engaging consumers in a monetary purchase of music rather than splitting up a $9.99 per month membership fee to Spotify among the thousands of artists you listen to each month. You'll get a little something special to collect without bulky CD cases and get a lot of value out of our material collected for a Boombox.
The Play it Forward game is just like what it sounds like. You'll be able to "Pay it Forward" to the artist by keeping their commission code moving around the world with your friends.
Each physical Cassette Card has a code that is only active for 8 Plays, once per person. After a Cassette has been played 8 times, 1 of 8 people from your chain will receive a FREE BOOMBOX for the next season.
The Cassette Code is a Discount Code that can be applied at Checkout. Follow us on Social Media or sign up for the mailing list to stay up to date on promotions being offered. They will change frequently.
If you purchased a Cassette Card Online, you'll be emailed the Code and shipped the physical card with your Boombox.
We will not be shipping Boomboxes until September after we have enough time to build our community of artists, and Curate Collections for your taste in Music + Style. Not every Collection will be released at one time however Boomboxes will ship 4 times per year.
We are curating Boomboxes by music genre and fashion trends. Typically if you listen to Punk Rock you'll want a Biker Jacket. Some Boomboxes will be edgier and others will be more feminine. Pick the style you like best and select a Boombox type such as a DEMO, EP or 8 TRACK for the amount you want us to spend.
You'll have the option to tell us if you want us to send MORE THINGS or LESS, MORE EXPENSIVE THINGS.
Yes, we anticipate featuring Guest List tickets for local shows with your Boombox purchase but we won't likely have this integrated until we have enough artists to coordinate their tour schedule with the city you live in. Our hope is that when a customer buys a Boombox, we will have a list of Guest List tickets available for cities near you. If you like a new artist you might get free tickets to check them out.
It will depend on what you buy. The Profit from the Cassette Cards will go to the Artist after paying production costs. Right now they will make $0.50 per card until we can get them produced cheaper.
The artist will receive 10% of the total price paid for a Boombox on non-exclusive merchandise. We are fashion buyers and designers so 90% is divided between the factories we purchase merchandise from and our team of buyers, curators, designers, e-commerce, marketing, order processing, fulfillment, and company operations.
If the artist created Exclusive Collections for their fans, they will earn 50% of the Retail Price.
Probably not. The images featured are for reference only. We do not carry inventory, we buy direct from a factory or supplier AFTER you place an order. We will look for similar styles for each box but everything is a Mix + Match. If you see something on our website or social media you can email us and we can see if we can find it.
Curated means that one of our fashion buyers or stylists will pick out merchandise based on the STYLE you selected. If you are buying a Womens EP for GLAM ROCK we will look for sparkly things like sequin bomber jackets and glitter clutch bags. We would not send those items to a Mens PUNK ROCK Boombox customer.
We'll also purchase these items based on your size.
We do not carry inventory for our store. Everything will flow between your order, our suppliers and fashion buyers without much more than women looking for the latest material and a warehouse to assemble orders.
Yes. If it's damaged or you don't like it please send it back within 30 days if you haven't used it. You will be credited an amount based on the value paid (not retail). Credits can only be applied to a Boombox, even you redeem another cassette, you'll be able to deduct $X from your next order.
Boomboxes will only ship 4 times per year. The earlier you place your Boombox order during a Recording Session, the longer it will take to receive it. Please check back for exact dates however you can anticipate the following for US deliveries:
