Helping kick-ass people sell merch & make money!
MerchBooth.com makes it easy for bands, musicians, businesses, club sports teams, venues, & so many others easily sell merch on demand to fans, followers, & friends. MerchBooth.com is on the cutting edge of Direct to Garment (DTG) technology, empowering our sellers to create merch stores at little to no cost. But don’t expect a bunch of boring merch at MerchBooth.com - Au contraire, we only work with entertainers that are willing to work extra hard to create kick-ass custom designs that keep their fans looking swag AF and coming back to buy even more merch when it is released.
MerchBooth.com is the brainchild of the team at SpecialGuestApp. Special Guest App is an industry defining and disruptive entertainment booking platform cofounded by serial entrepreneur Kris Jones and comedian / actor Damon Wayans, Jr. Looksie here to see Damon talking to Ellen DeGenerous on “the Ellen Show” about Special Guest (warning - Ellen freakin loves Special Guest).
The company has a bunch of deep pocketed institutional investors, including Lightspeed Venture Partners (Jeremy Liew) and Precursor Ventures (Charles Hudson), several Silicon Valley and Los Angeles luminaries turned investors such as Jack Chou (former head of product at Pinterest and later same role at Affirm) + Jimmy Lim (former lead product team at LinkedIn; now on lead product team at AirBnb) + Eric Sherman (founder / CEO of Emmy Award Winning Bang Zoom Entertainment), and a few notable investor celebrities, highlighted by a unmistakingly short world famous comic from Philly named Kevin Hart (Jumanji; Central Intelligence; The Upside), two hilariously funny dudes from ABC’s hit Comedy “New Girl” Jake Johnson and Lamorne Morris (who also starred in other amazing shows and films, like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and Christmas Chronicles, in that order), and two of the funniest Wayans Brothers - Damon Sr. (In Living Color; Major Payne; Lethal Weapon) and Marlon (Marlon on NBC; White Chicks; Scary Movie).
We hope entertainers design and sell kickass merch on the MerchBooth.com marketplace and their fans keep coming back to buy more, since MerchBooth is all about fan engagement and designs that don’t suck.
