Dropcards are for BRANDS – Not Just For Bands


Sure, Pressing Media 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, Pressing Media Dropcards are an easy (and inexpensive!)
way to promote your latest project — whatever it is.

Check out some recent Dropcards projects that weren’t for bands !



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.


Erik Griffin

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.

He 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.


James Patterson

Everyone knows James Patterson, the legendary thriller author whose books have
sold over 270 million copies. That’s why we were beyond excited to see 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.


The Butler

Here’s 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 Pressing Media 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.


Jug Face 

Here’s a Dropcard 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
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.
