Tag Archive: server down

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 🙂

GrabYourDesign.com had been a very nice French operated print on demand website with many good quality products and an easy design process. It’s advantage was definitely the huge distribution network with Amazon Marketplaces in North America and Europe plus listings on Ebay. But for months, the site had been more offline than online and during the last few weeks, I have never seen it online anymore.

All you get is an error 404, file cannot be found.

Very sad, I once had bought some flip flops from them and I still have and wear them 😦

Now the website is down and Google searched do not really help me understand why this happened. Are they closed for good? Will they ever be back? Will we receive any outstanding earnings?
