After a bike is carefully packed and ready to ship, the final step is to spray paint the CETMA stencil. I like this step because it’s a nice personal touch and a good symbolic “bon voyage” ritual for me.

Note: The stencil in this photo was done with a new paint pen instead of spray paint. I didn’t like it—I’ll use spray paint from now on.
