dA Gear Store Closed

After 8 years of working hand-in-hand with the community we love, the deviantART T-Shirts & Gear Shop is officially closed. We want to thank everyone who has been a part of this artistic journey. DeviantART T-Shirts & Gear has been a labor of love for us and it truly would not have been possible without the passionate support of deviants from far and wide.

From the very first design to the very last, we have so many great memories. We will never forget receiving our very first Action Shots of deviants from around the globe proudly wearing their deviantART Gear. Some of you sent photos squeezing your new Emoticon Stress Ball while others declared it was time to Quit Work Be a Ninja, or Panda, Robot, or even Wizard. No one can forget when we turned the cameras on ourselves and gave you access Behind The Scenes or when we came together on Earth Day to raise money for charity. Some of our favorite memories were when you took over designing in our deviantART Gear Design Challenges. From deviantART Logo T-Shirts, to Cute Monsters and even 8-Bit Graphics, we were continually amazed at the great talent residing in the community.

It’s fitting that as we look towards the future, we do so with a mention of Design Challenges. As we transition to our next project, we do so with an eye towards giving you, the greatest artist community on the planet, the tools necessary to take your designs and have them visually represented on apparel for you and millions of others to enjoy right here on deviantART.

Until that time comes, we want to again thank you for your support, and remind you that your work and the art of others is still available in our Prints Shop. And, be sure to let us know your favorite deviantART Gear memories! What’s your most prized item from the shop? Celebrate the ending of an era with us, as we embark on a new artistic journey together.

The deviantART T-Shirts & Gear store is officially closed. Thank you all for being a part of this legacy. We have enjoyed being a part of your wardrobe and we look forward to the next chapter.

Really do wish you would bring back the gear store, i miss it. I also don't appreciate the rise of premium membership.

A terrible decision that only kills Deviant Art even more! Each day I see more people leaving DA, and honestly, I can't blame them! The gear store was a great asset to the site! I always did my best to buy anything from it, but I hadn't had the chance! Now, I never will.
I don't like DA anymore... I just hang around and play with it, actually.

please open this again. if you are in need of money, do this instead of raising premium prices!

maybe you should re open to earn money
puppyhowler Featured By Owner Aug 17, 2015  Hobbyist
maybe reopening the shop will help bring the site more money?
just saying
MartiSilent Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2015  Student Filmographer
Aw! Bites! I just got back after being inactive for so long, I didn't realize the Gear Store went down! At the time of its prime, I was too young to buy things online without permission so I personally never got the chance to get anything! Pfft, now that I'm here ready to buy, this is what I find. Ah well.

So dA closes the Gear Store and two years later, bumps up the price of a premium membership? Why? This brought in a bunch of money!
Just open this store again and bring back the old price of premium membership! No one that I've seen appreciates the new cost! Bad move!  
The-Little-Caticorn Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
My favorite deviant gear memories? Well, it was a very interesting story, really... Oh, wait, I forgot. I DO NOT HAVE ANY BECAUSE I WAS NEVER ABLE TO BUY ONE. -_-

Hmm, what a shame :/
I think they pushed away a great opportunity to make some extra money by closing the merch shop.
Besides, how are we supposed to show off our pride and love for this great community in public if we can't get fancy bags, cool stickers and exclusive t - shirts to do so?

If the plan was to draw LESS attention to DeviantArt, then taking away the opportunity for us to proudly prance around with the dA logo all over us was a great idea...
Sourdend Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2015  Student Digital Artist
I had one in my cart for 4 years and never managed to buy one. After 2 years I am back to find out it closed.
It really breaks my heart.

Is there no way to buy Deviantart merch now? :O
Sotkettu Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Some people sell used deviantART merch in eBay and other similar websites. I really liked deviantART T-shirts but I was only able to buy one before the shop closed. That t-shirt is still in a very good condition even though I have used it really much.

Yeah I got so excited about this. I wanted a fella plushie when I saw it, maybe a couple dA t-shirts to support that Im a dA fan but reading the comments I see its closed. Heart = broken. I hope enough people want this to reopen that it actually happens!

Not too much interested in buying prints.

...........Just waiting for the day that Heaven smiles down on us again and reopens the store <3 the two bags I got from you during the store closing have lasted going on 4 years now and they still look brand new. Your products were the best I've ever gotten off the internet.  A shame my shirts never got to me (was refunded though)  I would be rocken DA even more in partnership with my bags :)

wow cool
AspenBearski Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2015
i come back to dA after two or more years of being gone and not ONLY are their changes, but this is closed too?
it looks like you need to reopen. when you piss off your users, your no longer a desirable site. 
think your business actions thru dA. think them through well. before enacting change like this.
ThePrettiestSalad Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2014  Professional General Artist
You leave for 3 months and they get rid of Fella, change the badge system, and close the shop! 
For frick's sake. 

I've been here in some capacity (Although through different accounts) since 2006. I can't believe what horrible things DA has done to itself lately in the name of progress.
hiaamir Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014
when this will re open.. plz start this again it was wonderful
WesleyRiot Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2014  Professional Filmographer
i dont care about stupid prints! where are the cool bags and pin badges and stickers? what the fuck are you thinking?
ViBlue Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Student General Artist
honestly i was trying to see where I could buy DA gear and just crossed this journal.. It was the only reason I was gathering points. better now check some artists I like and support them. It's a shame points cannot be converted into money it doesn't make me feel appreciated or that it paid off the commissions and artwork I've been posting.
