A couple of notes:
- American Apparel make (popular opinion) pretty great quality shirts. I
prefer to use these when I'm making t-shirts that people intend to wear for
longer than one event. They're pricey though - starting at $15. They rarely
go on sale - it's worth being on their mailing list to catch deals if you
intend to do a lot of this.
- You can get pretty good shirts (personal opinion) at Joe Fresh -
they're usually $8, but now and then you can get them as low as $3/each on
- You can get cheap, mostly awful shirts at Value Village. The Sally Ann
does 50% off Fridays all summer, so you can pick up ugly shirts for
sometimes less than $1.
- For practice, you can get free/nearly free shirts through the various
local freecycling groups, although "shopping" on the forums can be a bit of
a pain. uOttawa has a freecycling "store" on King Edward that's usually
stocked with worn student hand-me-downs.
- Also, ask around - most people have a heap of beat-up t-shirts on
their way to the rag bin that they'd be happy to give you. Good for
finessing your squeegee skills before you press your masterpiece.
