Many community members have been asking us where they can get their hands on Duolingo shirts or stickers. Today, we are excited to announce the launch of our new Duolingo gear store where you can buy awesome Duolingo stuff. We will be adding more gear very soon, and we'll keep you posted when it is available. This is just the beginning!
All of what you see on the gear store is sold at cost. What does that mean? It means Duolingo makes no money on any of these purchases. What you pay covers our fulfillment and production costs and that's it. We do ship globally too!
So here it is! http://gear.duolingo.com (You can also find a link on the footer of the website.)
Perhaps a competition that pays in LiGoTs, oh yeah ... could be launched for the creation of 3D files native to one of the better FREE 3D printer creation programs for the creation of 3D files from which a "Duolingo Smart Phone Case" could then be made available to everybody. This would increase the coverage over many different types of phones. Once a project like this is started, only the file is needed, of course, so that anybody can download that, and print off their own case.
The design of the case might be such that a STICKER ... could be purchased from Duolingo that is a branded certificate earned by the purchaser. And that sticker might even be printable from the Duolingo user's account, printable on "sticker making paper" that is commonly available from most big box and craft stores.
So you would have a way cool, unique, personalized phone case with a sticker on it that shows your linguistic proficiencies ... It's not just a dream, it's DUOLINGOOOOoooo ! :-)
So the design, the back of the case, would need to have in interior bezel and a depressed area inside that bezel in which to mount the sticker, and of course, one could apply a NEW sticker over the OLD sticker, when the duolingo user gets a new or upgraded certificate.

Guys - you are really great and I really appreciate you bringing us these great surprises and news almost every day. I hope you will offer in gear.store wider variety of products soon. The prices are higher than I would prefer and t-shirts are not exactly my style but I would like to wear some unique and modern designed t-shirt with your logo :)
If you look at other Tshirts by companies that don't specialize in Tshirts, such as Treehouse's, they aren't any cheaper than the one's DL's giving. I was actually mildly surprised at their low price. And, like Kristine said, they are good quality and it's not cheap to get those to sell.
I'd love to see Duolingo t-shirts and long sleeved jersey shirts with writing in Swedish, German or French (and when the Russian program launches)...Russian. :) Of course with Duo the Owl. It would be cool if they had a jersey shirt with the arms the colour of the flags for the country and Duo holding a flag of the country...like the Swedish Duo Owl etc. And I agree with so many other posters...to include the funniest sentences! ''The women eat the tortoises!'' LOL :)
Please start selling the plush Duo owl in the store!!! It is just so cute. And there's plenty of demand judging by these discussions...
