The shop, launched on anticipation of the August 15, 2014 release, features official and fan generated designs on a robust selection of merchandise that pays tribute to the best-selling novel by notable author Lois Lowry.

“We’re excited to partner with The Weinstein Company on ‘The Giver’ given the success of the book,” says Ty Simpson, Vice President of Business Development. “CafePress is thrilled to establish partnerships that offer fans products that aren’t sold anywhere else.”

The Giver joins other premiere licensed entertainment properties that have sought to diversify merchandising through CafePress, a company recognized for fostering partnerships with major global entertainment companies. The customization leader is already highly regarded for its broad collection of partnerships that include an immense selection of wildly popular film, television and animated properties.

By providing a selection of user-generated designs and wide array of unique products such as apparel, drinkware, totes, and phone cases, fans are given the opportunity to further engage with the film even after the credits roll. These products include:

The film is based on the best-selling book The Giver by Lois Lowry, the haunting story of The Giver centers on Jonas, a young man who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Yet as he begins to spend time with “The Giver” who is the sole keeper of all the community's memories, Jonas quickly begins to discover the dark and deadly truths of his community's secret past. The movie is quickly gaining popularity with praise reviews and its A-list cast like Brenton Thwaites as Jonas, Meryl Streep as Chief Elder, Jeff Bridges as The Giver, Katie Holmes as Jonas’s mother, and Alexander Skarsgard as Jonas’s father.
