Sub Pop Records Press Kits Circa the Early '90s

I have been digging around my closets and unearthing many treasures to further prove my obsession with Seattle in the late '80s / early '90s. Here are some press kits that a friend who worked at Sub Pop at the time sent me. We were pen pals and often his letters were written on the back of these things- posters, pictures, and handbills.

Here are some press kits I have that are anywhere from 6 to 20 pages each. 


  1. came across your blog after looking at some Sub Pop related photos/presskits. i love your collections. i miss the 90's when we had these promo things going around, unlike today when everything is digital.

  2. Thank you for the kind words. There used to be such great promotional swag and press kits. I miss those days too!
