iNaturalist T-Shirts in the iNatStore!





Now you can buy iNaturalist shirts!

For years, people have been asking for iNaturalist shirts. And for years, we've only been able to print a few here and there and distribute them in person.

We wanted a better solution. We wanted a way to easily ship iNaturalist merchandise all over the world, without turning our small office at the California Academy of Sciences into a t-shirt distribution center. We don't want to become an apparel company, we just want people to be able to show their support for iNaturalist.

We needed a solution that allowed for cost-effective international distribution, multiple currencies, and minimal overhead (especially in staff time). After much research, we hope we have a solution thanks to the wonders of modern ecommerce: print on demand drop shipping.

How it works

When you place an order, a shirt of your specified color and size is printed with the iNaturalist logo in the USA. Then it is shipped directly to you from the warehouse. We never see it or touch it. There's no inventory. You get automatic emails updating you on the status of your order. And hopefully it arrives in a timely manner!

We're launching with just t-shirts for now, but hope to add other high-demand products like hats eventually, assuming the shirts go smoothly.





The shirts are soft, 100% cotton manufactured by Bella+Canvas. There are two styles (women’s cut and men’s/unisex cut) and two print options (with the bird or without), each available in both white and black. There is a metric and imperial size chart listed for each item so you can select the correct size.

Please note that the distributor suggests the following dates as cutoff times for holiday arrival:
December 3 for shipping destinations outside the US
December 13 for shipping destinations within the US

We hope you enjoy the shirts!

Is it just me or can I only get the bird logo on it if I order a women's cut shirt? I can't find any option to get the bird on a men's/unisex one.

@beachcomber check again! A couple variations were accidentally hidden from view.

yippee! Mine is so worn out, was trying to figure out if there was some way I could get another one made. It leads to so many discussions about iNat when I am out observing.

Yes @taogirl! My T-shirts have also opened many opportunities for me to share my enthusiasm about iNat.

I just ordered one of these. I can t wait to start wearing it and spreading the word.
Ironically, this summer, I had asked if there was a T-shirt I could buy, to help support and get the name visually out there, not just word of mouth to folks asking me what I am photographing and what do I do with the photos.

@tonyrebelo that's an awesome idea! Can you imagine a group of iNats' walking around with those shirts on? If that does not spark interest, something is wrong! (lol)

Cool! Be very interested in hats too.

Whopee!! I'll get one (or two), but can't wear them for about 6 moths. T-shirt weather usually starts in late May in a good year.

Wow! Got an email today that my shirt has already been shipped. I must have got my request in before they got swamped by all the orders from iNat folks who have been wanting logo shirts. Thanks so much for making this happen!

nope i love Gerald and there is a great idea for a Gerald t-shirt on this topic on the inat forum here: https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/how-did-the-observation-of-gerald-the-muskrat-go-viral-on-inaturalist/7851

Yes i think we should make a Gerald t-shirt

Posted by hedgehog111 5 days ago (Flag)

But, but....look at the havoc that Gerald has wreaked! That's playing with fire!

Posted by mamestraconfigurata 4 days ago (Flag)

No its not havoc and Gerald hasn't wreaked anything. Gerald is just become the most famous observation on all of iNat
They should make a T-shirt of him

Posted by hedgehog111 4 days ago (Flag)

All right, I give in. We probably should have a Gerald T-shirt.

Posted by mamestraconfigurata 4 days ago (Flag)

On condition that every community can have its own "Gerald" ...
