Well hey there–it’s been a while! I suppose I could offer an explanation.
I founded Black Peak in 2015 to sell the run of 80 series recovery points I had manufactured in Spokane, Washington. In developing the brand, I made a few t-shirts, sold on various sites and eBay (what a nightmare!) and generally had a ton of fun doing it.
In late 2016, several things happened:
- American Apparel (my preferred t-shirt blank provider, Made in the USA and all…) declared bankruptcy. The supply of AA shirts dried up pretty quickly, or became cost prohibitive.
- My hosting became obsolete. It’s a long story, but I essentially lost my entire website, blog, product catalog, etc.
- I sold out of recovery points, v1.0, and had no inclination to have more manufactured, as v2.0 was prototyped
- I graduated, got married, moved, bought a house, and started a somewhat adult job
So, that was a lot.
In response, I threw up a very basic site, retooled the shirt catalog, and now have a small selection of shirts available. I pulled back from all other sales outlets, and now sell exclusively through blackpeaksupply.com.
On the plus side, Black Peak is now a registered trademark!
So, what lies ahead?
