Not Just For Bands
Sure, Dropcards and bands go hand in hand, but did you know these cards can work for just about anything?
From preview chapters of books, entire audiobooks, comedy records, movie trailers and scene clips, film soundtracks and more, Dropcards are an easy (and inexpensive!) way to promote your latest project — whatever it is.
Check out some recent Dropcards projects we were really stoked to work on.
This past spring, Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman teamed up in the post-apocalyptic science fiction film Oblivion. To help promote the movie at their Oblivion Experience event held at Viceland during SXSW Film, Universal Pictures handed out Oblivion Dropcards as a fun giveaway item.
The Dropcards provided recipients with access to download the song “StarWaves” from the French electronica band M83. The song is featured in the movie’s soundtrack. Artwork for the film was included on the Dropcards and the eye-catching custom landing page tied everything together.
Films and their soundtracks are an awesome way to use Dropcards. They’re a fun and affordable way to promote the latest releases.
You know him as Montez Walker on Comedy Central’s Workaholics, but did you know Erik Griffin is also a hilarious stand-up comic? He is. And we have the Dropcards to prove it.
We recently did Dropcards for his debut stand-up album, Technical Foul: Volume 1. The record is out on SideOneDummy Records and features 22 tracks and a bonus song “My Queen,” which Workaholics fans will recognize as Montez Walker’s love/sex ballad to his wife Colleen.
Much like music, Dropcards work great for stand-up comedy tracks and full albums. It’s easy to handout Dropcards for comedians at shows and festivals.
Everyone knows James Patterson, the legendary thriller author whose books have sold over 270 million copies. That’s why we were beyond excited to work with Hachette Audio on Dropcards that offered a collection of his books. These Dropcards were distributed at various book publisher events and were the easiest way to hand out five different audiobooks at one time.
The books ranged from kid titles to adult-only novels; titles include Middle School, the Worst Years of My Life, I Funny: A Middle School Story, Alex Cross, Run, Private Berlin, and Secret Honeymoon
There was no easier way for Hachette to offer something physical to attendees yet provide them with something so portable.
Recently we did a fun project for the audiobook of Simon & Schuster Audio ’s The Butler: A Witness to History.
Check out the press release for the book, which inspired the recently released feature film Lee Daniels’ The Butler, here:

Audiobooks and Dropcards make perfect sense because the setup and distribution of a promotion using them is super easy, whether it’s for one event or many across the country.
We recently worked to produce Dropcards for an eerie compilation for the new movie Jug Face, a creepy, tense horror-thriller that is driven by its intense score.
The Dropcards for Jug Face were distributed at various film festivals earlier this year and the score and the original motion picture soundtrack was created by by indie music veteran Sean Spillane best known for his time in the band Arlo and for penning the soundtrack to the horror film The Woman.
Dropcards and soundtracks are a match made in cinematic heaven. Not only are they a simple and cost-effective way to deliver music, they also tie in the movie artwork into the promotion on the card and landing page.
