Well, I've been playing around with www.cafepress.com and zazzle.com where you can upload a picture, and turn it into a T-shirt. Remember those 'Got Armor?" Tees? I even did some of the Bermuda Triangle Expeditionary Force 1997-1955. Fun stuff. You can't sell copyrighted art but you can make your own.

http://www.cafepress.com/tk560 is my shop with some experimental goodies on it. but right now my billing is messed up.

I have been think about doing that myself with CafePress. Sound easy enough, just have to put the ole noodle to work and design a few things.
Thanks

Before you "waste" to much time, I'd suggest you create 1 tee and order it. I doubt you will be happy with the quality. I know I wasn't. The tees are just iron on. Same thing you can get at Walmart and print on your own printer. I won't even wear it.

Thanks for the heads up, I hate the cheap stuff, I want to wear it in 10 years from now.

The black t-shirts I agree are not that great. But I've had great luck with some of my T-shirts made of the nicer quality shirts, not those really cheap ones. Also, there are 2 ways you can print on the shirts, and one is direct printing, much better than the 'heat transfer'.

Jim

Zazzle.com also has this as an option.

Hey GoldCylon,

There's something in your signature file that upsets my browser... I get a dialogue warning that byyourcommand.net is trying to intercept my communications with this site.

Could you take that out, please?

First, it's not the quality of the shirt itself, it is the quality of the heat transfer. I can't remember if the quality of the shirt. But, I would say it is equal to purchasing a $6 Hanes/FTL tee and a $15 pack of iron on transfers and a decent color printer. It doesn't matter how awesome the printer is, when you transfer an 8.5" x 11" sheet to a t-shirt.. it sucks.

Now, the mugs, and other products (from what I have seen in pictures, I haven't actually purchased) they look great.

As for the siggy, it's because he is using https:// and the cirtificate the site is using is owned by another .com, so it gives you a warning to let you know that you are pulling something over an encripted connection that isn't "owned" by the site you are pulling it from. GoldCylon, try changing the https:// to just http:// in your sig and it should go away.
