Building bespoke BUSINESS packaging with Am Statik Latex…

Here is a somewhat abbreviated documentary of this labour of love; the physical incarnation of our second LP “Business”.

After hours of ruminations, procrastinations & tweaking various prototypes and suggestions by DeeDee Window, myself and Amy Amstatik Day, we came towards an innovative and fittingly bizarre type of packaging to house the new album in.

It includes reinforced yellow (of course) rubber, a clear latex window, yellow popper, 12 panel poster (signed and numbered) and 3 panel housing. And of course, a hand – stamped CDR of Business.

We will make just 50 of these things. You can grab one here.

The process, if you’re interested, is just like making any rubber garment; a long, highly skilled and fiddly ordeal. Thankful we had the nimble digits of Amy Day to steer the course. The end results are wonderful… after over a year’s puzzling, we are all proud to create such a weird, wonderful and unique DIY release.

Thanks to Amy for all her skills and creative expertise. To view more of her wonderful creations go to http://www.amstatik.com/
