Merchmaker

Launched in 2014, Merchmaker's business model is simple.

  • Acquire the licenses to sell official merchandise for the biggest names in sports and entertainment through retailers and content publishers
  • Supply a wide range of products that can be manufactured on demand
  • Create thousands of artwork/product combinations to give consumers choice
  • To expand distribution into multiple territories using the best available print technology

Our product range includes apparel, accessories, and products for the home.

The design process starts with the brand's own image assets and guidelines.  Working with these, our in-house creative team design exciting artworks and customisation options, while retaining each respective brand identity. Only the best artworks are authorised, and move to the next step of sampling.  

Retail Integration

Our Merchmaker platform allows online retailers and publishers to sell print-on-demand products from our portfolio of global brands, direct from their own ecommerce platform, risk free. Merchmaker enables retailers to offer customised products to their consumers without holding any stock or allocating shelf space.

This allows retailers to select the brands most suited to their audience and offer thousands of product combinations with zero risk, zero stock and zero wastage. While publishers can have their own fully integrated commerce platform retailing 100% official merchandise, without the expense and hassle of fulfilment systems.

Print on Demand

One of the perks of the print-on-demand model is the ability to harness an expanding network of manufacturers across the globe. An international network of suppliers means products reach consumers efficiently, printing top quality merchandise rather than being mass-produced. To maintain these standards, we employ stringent quality controls, including spot checks, supplier visits, and health & safety checks, meeting ethical standards as well as quality.
