Tag Archive: Investigation


Oh my gosh, I should have seen this coming… 2 (or 3?) years ago I had joined a new print on demand service focussing on wall art: Noir Gallery had many promises and as always I uploaded a few of my photos and digital artwork to test it.

Focussing on just wall art when other pod services also feature a wide array of various products did not seem too risky since they partnered up with e.g. Walmart and Etsy to sell their stuff in many online shops. I think during this “test period” I even managed to sell one piece.

But the truth is, I will never see my money and we will probably never see Noir Gallery back online.

With a recent increase in my activity and productivity I remembered Noir Gallery and intended to upload some more designs to it – but the website I had bookmarked to enter my account was offline. I tried again a few days later and tried the main homepage for customers – everything offline!

So yesterday, I finally managed to find some time to investigate whether this is a bigger problem and yes, looks like it.

The service is completely offline, the Facebook page has been deleted, Twitter account seems to be still online but not updated recently.

I checked online reviews and the ones they received in 2022 where all very negative… like cheap printing quality on thin cardboard.

The server for noirgallery.co is not found, emails I tried to send to them bounce back and do not get delivered. I do believe Noir Gallery is as dead as it could be.

If you happen to have any more information or questions, please leave a comment. I am always happy to hear from you, even if it’s just to say hi and hello 🙂

I had this really interesting search term “did society6 get bought by amazon” for my blog during January 2019 and I thought it might be funny to investigate a bit.

To be honest, and to not put too many of your hopes into that: I did not find anything that REALLY clarifies this situation but I do not believe in it. Why would Amazon buy an Asian company (Spoilers: That assumption is a mistake!) when they already have Amazon Merch?

Here are some interesting finds though, reading them was worth my while:
