    The shirt is right. Its just the description that is spelled wrong. Pretty average effort there
    Ha! Nice catch! That looks professional and totally not embarrassing

    And look! She added an item that her fans can actually afford:

    Her whole attempt at "branding" is hilarious. For someone soooo thirsty the desert theme is actually highly appropriate. When I think of her career tumbleweeds blowing through a barren wasteland is also appropriate. Congrats Lee, you may have actually got it right!

    Wow!!! All those months of meetings and overhaul of her website, and this is what she comes up with? Website and merchandise design? I'm assuming she hired a web design person to do this. She should sue him/her. I guess she can't sue herself for the simplistic hats and shirts she got from a self-design site.

    I mean this in all sincerity, had she produced these results for a university business marketing class, she would get a D.

    I'd love to be a fly on the wall in those production and budget tracking meetings. LR: "Magnet sales are down $5. WHY??" Web master: "Sorry. You lost a fan."

    This piggybacking off of Taylor Swift's branding is just making me cringe so hard.

    They didn't even bother to make an actual sample Tee. All they did was take a T-shirt (with ripples) and put a design on top (no ripples). Couldn't they even be bothered to try to make it look like it was an actual Tee?


    I guess the magnets were the only things they could be bothered to actually produce. I wonder if they used VistaPrint, and got the first 500 for $1.00?

    That would be my guess.

    99% of music acts have promo teams (or will utilize radio station interns, whatever station is promoting the concert in that city) to pass out crap like magnets, a couple tee's, stickers, etc. for free at concerts... So, it's kinda weird/dumb to see her charging for a small magnet with her name on it.

    A fan could probably make one that not only looks better, but make one for the fraction of the cost.

    Huh? 99% you say? I think you're pulling figures out of your culo.

    This tacky generic merchandise is a new low in a year of lows. It's a good thing her un-reality show went nowhere (quelle surprise) or she would be marketing Eddie 'n' Me crap by now. I hope she wears the merchandise or stands in Walmart with her home made posters again.

    At least it's just numbers, and not things like gerbils.

    Ha! I am. I'll re-phrase:
    Every concert I've ever been to in my life, I've seen promo teams for artists/the tours as a whole pass out junk like magnets and stickers to people... Although I don't know for certain that 99% of acts do this, I know that a lot of acts/tours utilize promo teams to pass out the junk that Leann is charging for on her site.

    So according to my calculations, it's actually 99.57454565% of music acts

    Yeah some do use street teams to give crap away, if they can afford it. Most can't afford it though, and rely on merch sales to survive. They'd make more profit on a $5 magnet than a $5 CD or digital download.
