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.

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.

I just learned of this, it's disappointing, the shirts were nice as were the bags and misc stuff (bumper sticker, stress balls, etc.) I hope that out of popular demand this decision can be reversed, I wanted to buy some bags, shirts, and other awesome DA stuff TO SHOW MY LOVE OF DEVIANTART TO THE WORLD!!

Honestly... I wouldn't be surprised if, with these new updates, we'd get a new devWear section. Almost every big company now has a shop like this, with items, goodies, keychains and whatnot for users to buy, wear and make the brand known.

But hey, if you want to continue making decisions that work only half way, by all means, go ahead. There's plenty of other specific (or not) art sites to be found and be part of, waiting for their moment of glory. (:

Why did you close this? Were you not making a huge profit out of it, or what? It makes no sense.

I HATE it when people close stuff without telling us why! Don't just say "We're closing, we hope you had good memories, bla bla bla bla", TELL US WHY YOU HAVE TO CLOSE! Rage I am PISSED OFF! frustrated Pissed

Same here. I was actually looking forward to a pin shaped like the new logo too. I'd wear that proudly. 
TastyRiolu Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2014
Yeah, I planned on sticking it to my lanyard.
