Print a t-shirt


I went to http://www.stamps.com to order US Postage stamps with a photo that I choose to upload: no Elvis stamps for me.

 

There are also sites (like www.pictureframes.com) that will print/frame and deliver a customer photograph to any address: a great way to send framed pictures to relatives.

 

Printing a photo on a t-shirt is a great gift idea too. My loving wife gave me a photo t-shirt of our daughter for Father’s day many moons ago.

 

We’ve tried printing our own photos on t-shirt transfer paper, but that is a rather involved process: print, iron, press, hope it’s straight, package it, put the right postage, etc.

 

Also, of the t-shirts we’ve made, the ones done professionally by Kinkos seem to have lasted the most launderings.

 

A while ago, I heard that Kinkos was bought by FedEx. So it occurred to me that I should be able to go to Kinkos web site, upload a picture and have it delivered anywhere. No fuss. No muss.

 

Alas, that site doesn’t seem to have this service.

 

So I Google for “photo print t-shirt” and found several sites like www.choiceshirts.com

 

Amazing how easy it is!

    Yeah, I’ve been using CafePress for a while for this as well. Works for small quantity promototional shirts. I still get a handful of Web Connection shirts from them from time to time to give away at trade shows.

    The main problem is that you need to order a minimum quantity with most of these so one off shirts are not an option I think.

  2. Looks like Zazzle (http://www.zazzle.com/create/help/faq.asp) doesn’t have that limitation, if I’m reading properly.

    I have 5 grand-kids, a photo of them on a t-shirt sounds like a cool idea.
