    How many of those did you sell?

    1. Jim Cook says:

      Good question, Ross. The answer is somewhere in the tens for each design… much, much lower than the demand for presidential election-related items was in 2008.

  2. Tom says:

    What do you attribute that to Jim? Do you think it’s due to the poor economy (so many people out of work, the high prices of energy and food, etc.), more voter apathy now for politics due to the fact that nothing is changing for the better no matter who we vote for (both parties being two sides of the same corporate-backed coin), some combination of the two, or something different?

    1. Jim Cook says:

      I attribute it to the poor economy, yep. A lot of people are not spending money on items unless they’re absolutely necessary. I agree with you that voter apathy is part of it, too, but I think there are two reasons for that apathy. The first is disgust with Democratic Party continuity with the Bush years on a number of policies. The second is that a lot of people can’t handle the fact that there are 535 members of the House and Senate, and they want a single celebrity presidential race to focus on. The American people are kind of like monarchists in that way.
