    I really want to have one done. It would be great just to wear it around and be able to say "I made this". [​IMG]

    I'm working on a picture I want to put on one... as well as a slogan, which I'm at a dead end with. They cost about $30... so not TOO bad... [​IMG]

    I'm not clear. Are you printing it yourself or having it done? Shouldn't cost near that much.

    Oh yeah, I would like to have one printed. Sorry if it wasn't clear! I've changed the title of the thread [​IMG]
    I haven't got a clue how to print one myself, but if anyone's ever done that, that's cool too. [​IMG]

    The cheapest I could find was $14, and it was one of those shapeless tees that come in one size fits all. [​IMG] I think I'd be willing to splash out on something that would look a bit better. [​IMG]

    I've had several printed from cafepress.com. I've also made my own using transfers purchased at any office supply section and running through my printer. Now if you're talking about embroidery I could see them costing a bit more, but a heat transfer shouldn't cost too much.

    Do you know how much it would cost to get a printer to get them done at home? I can't really buy things over the internet yet due to lack of payment methods. [​IMG]

    I just bought a printer. It is a Lexmark fax/printer/copier all in one style. It was $119 however I know for a fact it can be purchased for less. The transfer paper can be bought at walmart for less than $15. There are printers that cost less, and of course the option of going to a copy shop.

    OK, that's pretty cool. I might see if I can try that. Thanks for the info. [​IMG]
    This might make a good gift idea for people in the future... [​IMG]

    You can get a decent one at WalMart for $29.00. This is the one I use. I've been really happy with it:

    They also have the transfers:

    I had one done by Vista Prints with my rooster Nick on it, but darned if I can find it. I've never worn it either.
