From favorite band to Christmas tradition with one custom ornament
By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): Full Service, an Austin-based band, consists of the trio of Tim “Bonesaw” Kepner (vocals, guitar), Dave “Hoag” Kepner (vocals, drums), and Elliott “Smellman” Larden (vocals, percussion, keys). As an unsigned, unrepresented band, they count on social media channels to increase their fan base and let folks know about upcoming performances.
By streaming their jam sessions and practices, posting general updates and even making instructional videos on how to play songs, they engage with their fans—even asking for input, ideas and suggestions. Through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, they’ve amassed a following of loyal fans and continue to make and strengthen connections.
For their Christmas album, Full Service Saves Christmas, the band was looking for a cool holiday promo idea that their fans would actually want—something unique, personalized and of course, totally SWAG.
We had a blast creating these die struck, soft enamel ornaments customized in the shape of a whale wearing a Santa Hat. Of course, we imprinted the Full Service logo for an extra jolly touch. These shiny, colorful, high quality ornaments were a big hit with the band and fans alike. Here’s what Bonesaw had to say
Dude…. You NAILED IT on these ornaments! We…probably should have made more. So great… thank you for pushing us to do them and having the great vision. DEFINITELY excited about future endeavors and creations.
These customized ornaments are great way to show people your holiday spirit and become part of an infinite tradition that is always cherished. They’re also an affordable option when you need to create something one-of-a-kind for the holidays.
This Full Service ornament is just one example of how we can help your brand create SWAG with Style. For more great ideas, check out our other case studies or give us a call at 1.888.752.0432.
