About

Welcome to SKA BOX! "Your favorite ska show- in a box." We're a brand new all-ska membership-based subscription box! Bringing you a mystery box of music, merch, & more- straight to your door. This box focuses on ska music, so we are highlighting artists and creators who bring life to the genre and the lifestyles that they represent! Ska has long represented unity and it's anti-racist, pro-feminist, multiracial philosophy is needed as much now as when it was established. By providing a curated box, we hope to share our love of ska music, while also expanding personal worldviews. We want to highlight diverse artists and their voices, as well as well-known artists and their history, and hope to draw new fans to the genre. 

Each month, subscribers will receive ska stuff from bands around the world, plus merch chosen to fit the ska theme of the month! Box contents may vary, but subscribers can look forward to items like:

  • CDs
  • MP3 Downloads
  • Magnets
  • Stickers
  • T-Shirts
  • Patches
  • Water Bottles
  • Totes
  • Enamel Pins
  • Button Pins
  • Posters
  • Shoes Laces
  • Sun Glasses
  • Books
  • Artist Prints
  • Checkered & More Checkered!

and more! The items within the box will come from artists and creators from within the genre and will be sourced with fans in mind. We don't want to spoil the surprise, but can promise it will be worth it!!! 

 SKA BOX monthly themes may include:

  • The 3rd Wave Ska Box
  • Trad Ska Box
  • West Coast Ska Box
  • East Coast Ska Box
  • Two-Tone Ska Box
  • 90's Ska Box
  • Female Fronted Ska Box
  • Jamaican Ska Box

and more!

 Becky and Cassie are long-time ska fans and make a point to stay as involved in the ska scene as possible. We have been to more live shows together than we can count and don't plan on stopping any time soon. We love ska, we live ska, we breathe ska- and we want to share that joy and energy with the world. As life-long ska fans, we feel confident that we can create amazing boxes that will take your ska experience to another level. But we need help! 

Starting a business takes a lot of time and money, of course. When you donate to our campaign, you will be helping us get new and diverse ska music into the hands of fans- all over the world.

We have budgeted the biggest chunk of our fundraiser to sourcing box contents- both music and merch! This budget will give us enough money for three months worth of boxes, which will give us some time to establish a customer base. 

The second-largest amount goes toward funding our Kickstarter rewards. The next chunk of our budget goes toward packaging, including things like shipping boxes, stickers, packing inserts, and content cards. Lastly, the money will be used to fund web hosting, site design, and other technical stuff that we may need help with. 

Additionally, if we have the funds to get established, we plan to expand to provide additional boxes to subscribers. We hope to reach out far and wide to access more artists and creators. We also aim to reduce shipping costs. 

Each level of donation gets you listed as "Friends of SKA BOX" on our backer's page on the SKA BOX website. For backers who receive a box with their donation, you'll be receiving a Special Kickstarter-Exclusive Box as your first box!! This box will be different from the boxes that regular subscribers receive, because we want to show you how much we appreciate your support! 

If your donation included a reward of just coupons, you will receive your coupon code via email in December. We will launch a Kickstarter survey once the campaign is successful to ask you for your t-shirt size, etc., if needed. 

 We DREAM BIG here at SKA BOX, so we already have plans for what to do should we blow past our initial funding goal. We eventually plan to launch additional boxes, but with stretch goals, we could get there much sooner!

 We want to give a huge thank you for reading our campaign and considering a donation. This project is incredibly important to us and we hope to receive a lot of support for this. Ska music deserves to be seen and heard, and we hope to be able to share our passion with as many people as possible. 

 Ska'd for life:

(Bad Manners)

This is our passion. This is what we love. Thank you for considering a donation!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!

Risks and challenges

One of our biggest concerns is running into packing and shipping issues. We are just two people, so we worry that we will struggle getting orders out in a timely manner; however, with enough backer funding, we will be able to hire help!

We are also concerned about coming up short on backers. We are pretty well-invested in this though, and we will do whatever we can to make this become successful!
