Have you ever loved a song lyric so much that you wanted to show it to the whole world? Well now you can, with the Hal Leonard Corporation’s latest website, LyricStore.com. It’s the only website where customers can print accurate, licensed lyrics on clothing, mugs, and mouse pads.
The lyrics from songs recorded by the world’s top artists are copyright protected with royalties paid to the appropriate publishers and songwriters. Some of the artists include The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, and Brooks & Dunn.
The website claims to represent all genres of music including rock, pop, country, standards, Broadway, hip-hop, and metal. However, I found only a few bands categorized as metal – Blue Oyster Cult, The Beatles, The Troggs, Firehouse, and Yngwie Malmsteen. All of these artists, except for Yngwie Malmsteen, belong under the rock category rather than metal. The Broadway and musical/show categories were fairly limited as well. But several of the categories such as pop music, standards, and country, have a broad selection of songs. New lyrics are supposed to be added to the site daily, so here’s hoping they’ll beef up the skimpier categories.
Song lyrics can be printed on short and long-sleeved T-shirts, hoodies, tank tops, coffee and latte mugs, and mouse pads, all available in a rainbow of colors. Customers can select single lines of lyrics or entire songs and either make your own design or pick a premade one. Quantity discounts are available for seven items or more, and prices start under $12.
