Personalized T-Shirt

Postby Schabow » Mon Jul 16, 2007 11:44 pm

Does anyone know where I can get a personalized t-shirt made in Madison? For instance, I just want to put one picture on one white T-shirt (and the quality isn't that important)...and I would rather not do it on-line. I remember when photo-places use have that service, but I'm not seeing that anymore. I don't know, anyone know anywhere?

If you buy new shirts you gotta wash them once because sometimes the shrinkage factor + the design do not wind up so happy after their first trip in the laundry.
I suggest hitting the thrift stores and looking for those $1 shirts which are prewashed and preowned! Thats how Hoedunk got so rich on our merch sales.

I'm a busy man...I don't have time for that shit. I would much rather pay someone to do it. They used to have those services around...but now it's all on-line, where I don't like doing my biznezz.

Read the instructions on the transfers ... transfer types vary! Some want you to wash the shirts first, some prefer fresh, un-washed shirts (because detergents interfere).

As for the "wait 5 minutes," that also varies. Some transfers you need to pull IMMEDIATELY after ironing. Waiting five minutes will leave you with a piece of paper permanently bonded to your t-shirt.
