Hey guys, I'm a newly registered member of the forum but have been lurking for a couple of years and I need a little advice if you guys are so willing.
I started out doing flyers for my band a few years ago, since then I've been working on my skills and have branched out into doing flyers for a couple of other local bands but they've always been digital prints. There are a couple of my favorite small indie bands coming through town early next year and I would love to do some screen printed posters for them.
After searching the threads I've found that the best way to approach this would probably be to contact the bands directly. Their websites list general managers and booking agents as well as the tour manager. Who would be the best one to contact or should I send emails to everyone? I just don't want to seem spamy or like a total fanboy. Also, how should I word it so as not to sound totally unprofessional/noob. If I receive no reply, how long should I wait to send a follow up email?
