The website was home to merchandise from YouTubers Emma Blackery, Evan Edinger, Luke Cutforth, and Dottie James.
TenEighty was informed of the closure a month ago and has reached out for comment, but is yet to hear back.
No further information has been published as to the reason for Fireflight Merch’s closure. The website now redirects visitors to the creators’ own websites.

Updated 18 July 2016 to clarify when Fireflight informed TenEighty of their closure. Physical copies of TenEighty Magazine were previously sold through Fireflight Merch.
