You know how retail businesses start prepping for the Christmas season in July – well, this is the flip side of that. And here in the DC area, it brightens up winter as we work to get everything in line for the upcoming music seasons. It’s good to have things to smile about…

So take heart! The outdoor food and music season is on its way!  Does your event wish list include hanging banners, retractable pop-up banners, engraved mugs, T-shirts, caps, or hoodies, a Promo Pak folder with a demo CD inside? Business cards, rack cards, palm cards, staff badges with lanyards, or programs? Did I miss anything?

We keep bragging on our friends Jon and Maria of Famous Last Words because they keep doing cool things.

No pressure! You’re ALL our favorites 🙂  But we do LOVE these pop up banners, mugs, and magnets!

Seriously, the creativity and drive of all of our musical customers, whether classical ensembles, folk and Americana performers, heavy metal garage bands, bluegrass or jazz guitar virtuosos, or blues masters, just humbles us some days. Thank you, everybody, for everything you do. And here’s to 2021.

Let’s talk about what YOU need for this new year. Call National Media Services at 540-635-4181, or email Mike McCool at
