LyricFind is preparing to launch LyricMerch to serve up on-demand (and licensed) lyric merchandise.
LyricFind, the global leader in licensed lyrics with a catalogue of more than 1 million songs from deals with over 4000 music publishers, is getting into the merch business. The Toronto-based company is launching the offshoot LyricMerch, a one-stop shop for on-demand lyric merchandise.
"Pick any line from any song and put that on a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, a coffee mug and one of the fun things that we're doing is shower curtains," LyricFind founder and CEO Darryl Ballantyne tells Billboard. "So if you've ever wanted to sing in the shower and actually get the words right, we could print up the lyrics."
The initial launch of lyricmerch.com -- expected in September -- will be in Canada and the U.S., then roll out to other countries, "hopefully in the not too distant future as long as we make sure we have all the kinks are worked out," he says.
