Rat Trap Press is no longer in the t shirt printing business. Sales dropped off considerably over the past six months. There are several reasons, but I think the biggest is the number of people printing bike designs. When I started selling on Etsy a few years ago there were just a handful of bike designs, now it seems like there are hundreds. I've had fun printing. I made some money and met lots of really nice people from all over the world (online of course). It's time to try something else.
I've already sold off some of my equipment which is going to pay for my son's college books and bills. The good thing is that after selling my equipment I was finally able to buy a bike. I bought an 80's Takara Overland touring bike this afternoon. Some of you may have seen it on Craigslist today. I cleaned it up a little this evening and took it for spin around the block. It shifts great but I need to adjust the brakes and true the wheels. I'm looking forward to working on this bike.
