About Merch City
We help fans and artists reach each other
After looking at alternatives
We opened in 2015
When Martins band began to get noticed by bloggers and critics from all parts of the world, he suddenly found himself putting CD’s in envelopes and licking stamps on a daily basis. Soon it went from novelty to chore, so he and former colleague Thomas started searching for a service that could help upcoming bands with sales and logistics. When no apparent solution existed, they teamed up with Rasmus to create Merch Ctiy.
Merch City was founded as a response to changing cash flows in the music business but today we work with all kinds of artists and creatives.
Say goodbye to the hassle of selling online
Designed for creatives
The pressure on creatives to monetize their art can sometimes become a showstopper for those, who would rather make videos, play music or paint, than make spreadsheets. We take care of online sales and logistics, essentially helping creatives run a business without having to think about it all the time.
Merch City is responsible for the daily operations and logistics. We pack and ship posters, t-shirts, albums, bottle openers, and / or whatever else our partners want to sell.
Simple and transparent
No hidden agendas
At Merch City, we believe that merchandise sales can make the difference in whether your art is a hobby or a budding business. Merch City is a community where we lift each other, and create a richer culture together.
Our prices are transparent and our business model simple: The vast majority of the proceeds go to those who create.
The Merch City Team
Usually seen at the coffee machine when he's not mopping floors, packing and shipping orders, and most importantly helping our partners reach their full potential.
Master of Production
Your go-to guy if you need an album pressed on vinyl. Or t-shirts for your tour. Or a bunch of stickers to cover your teachers car. Simon manages sourcing and production.
Head of Design
Visual design and UX is Martins game. He designed the first version of merchcity.com, and now he spends his time tweaking UX and making new designs for our partners.
Head of Tech
As a software architect, Chris likes building stuff, which is pretty lucky for the rest of us, as he builds new features when he's not busy making our IT services run smoothly.
In true millenial fashion, Joachim navigates the realm between reality and digital experience with ease. He's responsible for keeping the shop up to date, as well as prepping most of our events.
As a trained designer, René has a keen eye for what looks good. On a shirt, mug, poster, you name it. This is the guy who ensures the quality of everything we send to the printing presses.
From interviewing business partners and customers to placing the perfect Instagram post, juggling campaigns, sales funnels, words, graphs, statistics. All this is Heidi's game.
