    Do you guys think its a good idea? Make some cool designs on illustrator, upload on teespring and advertise on facebook. I'm a fan Prince's music and it's shocking to me that he passed. But, is selling some shirts going too far because he just passed? I feel like it would do well. What's your guys opinion on this idea?

    to me that sounds like a good idea many news agencies and music companies are trying to milk it. I dont think it will do harm if you make bit money out of it.

    If you're having the idea NOW, you're too late to the game bro.

    There is an ENTIRE INDUSTRY that revolves around celeb deaths. Nothing wrong with getting into it, but the real money is already being made. Do your homework and be ready for the next musician to fall. Looks like it's the year of the major musician's death. Unfortunately...But there's always money to be made.

    What's the best site for pumping out tshirts? Teespring looks like a bad one for churn and burns. There was some kid making a fortune selling Undertale tshirts when that started taking off but I can't find the thread now.

    Always a nice way to pocket after a celebrities death (Gave me a dark twist.) Try not to be too vulgar with the tshirts so you can stay safe and grow because some claims could be defamation of character to the party in question, resulting in lawsuits. Do this with any celebrity.

    There is a lot of folks looking to cash in on a celebrity dying. The major media outlets already have tribute videos and base articles together for a majority of the celebrities out there! Just waiting for them to die so they can get the quick coverage on their deaths.

    I agree, these ideas work best as soon as you see the news or headline, an jump on it before others do.

    Not working. On ebay, competition is enormous, page after page with prince t shirts, and sometimes for ridiculous prices. Facebook ads, does not work, 15% CR on post but hardly any click to website. And it seems Prince was not popular at all in UK? For US, CR is 15%, but for UK only 3%.
