I've been thinking the same as I bought a load of cheap plain t-shirts for the beach last month. Too many plain white ones now.bolda wrote:I've been umming and ahhing about printing a couple of T-shirts myself with some of those iron-on transfers you can print on yourself but I don't know how good they are.
I've used transfers before, knocking up a 'God Save The Queen' replica for a punk themed party I went to. They work really well, though I'm not sure how many washs they'll last as mine was slashed up a bit and went in the bin. Still, when you're using 3 for a fiver t-shirts they're fairly disposable.
My thinking was to do a few small logos on one sheet then cut them up and spread those across several Ts, as the paper is probably the most expensive part. That and I tend not to wear huge images across my chest these days as I don't have the shape for it (I really need to get back on the diet and go to the gym).
Still, a fiver for some shirts and a few quid for a few sheets of paper - you'll get at least a couple of decent shirts for under a tenner. Can't hurt to experiment.
If you've ever owned a t-shirt where the picture felt 'plasticky' and it all cracked when it was washed too hot/often, that's what the transfers are like.
