Band Merchandise

As music becomes “free” with streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music, musicians and bands must find creative and unique ways to merchandise their brand, especially during concerts. Foam fingers are perfect for fans to wave in the middle of a concert to show they’re the number one fan, and they’re a perfect memento of a fun night out watching their favorite band or musician. 

Political Rallies and Conventions

If you’ve ever been to a political rally, you’re more than likely familiar with the branded cardboard signs that are given out to be held up. You may even be familiar with these signs if you’ve watched any of the major political parties and their conventions on TV during an election year. 

While the signs are great and they get the message out, custom foam fingers offer a different take on the political sign that allow supporters to show their enthusiasm during a rally or a speech in a unique and fun way.
