How Fat Cat Apparel was born

I have always loved to scrapbook and every Christmas I make calendars for my friends. I used to do these all by hand until I met my friend Chris who introduced me to the world of graphic design. I slowly started learning how to use the adobe programs and began making my calendars on the computer. Before long I was even designing my own scrapbook paper. I decided that I wanted to sell my paper and so one Christmas I started an Etsy site. However, instead of selling scrapbook paper I ended up selling my custom photo ornaments, which took off. I kept saying that eventually I would get my scrapbook paper up but I was just too busy and could never seem to find the time. Almost a year passed and I hadn't accomplished much. That was when Chris purchased a direct to garment printer for his print shop. At first I didn't really think much of this new piece of technology. Then one day I was at work, board and was surfing the net. I found a shirt I liked but didn't really want to pay a huge amount for it. That was when it suddenly hit me that I could make my own shirt, not only that, I could make shirts and sell them on Etsy. So I added the apparel half to my shop. When my first shirts started to sell I was so excited and I couldn't wait to make more. I ended up scrapping the scrapbook paper idea and began focusing instead on t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, baby one pieces, baby t-shirts, toddler t-shirts, tote bags, stickers, and custom photo ornaments.

And that is how Fat Cat Apparel came to be.
