    Where to get T shirts made?

    Where have you gotten/recommend getting printed shirts made? We would be getting about 8-10 for our roadtrip to the A&M game.

    Re: Where to get T shirts made?

    Depends if you want them to say "ISU" or "Iowa State" in any way, shape or form... I know atleast one place in town used to have minimum orders more like 15-20

    If you know anything about screen printing, you can use the Memorial Union workspace, but it may be too late to take the class to be able to do it if you haven't already

    It's a good option if you take the class though



    EDIT: If you haven't taken the course do what I did and find someone that has

    Professionaly, there is a place above Dogtown but I think their minimum orders were around 15 shirts, and you'd need to get permission to use trademarked stuff like ISU or Iowa State

    Not sure if they still do this, but T-Galaxy always did great work with screenprinting

    A & R Marketing. I've used them many times in the past, and they always turn out great. Very friendly, very helpful, good quality, and as cheap as you'll probably find.

    Dogtown or Intensitee (on welch)... If you were in the West Des Moines area, Americas Best Apparel or something like that were really good to work with.

    On the cheap, get some Epson Iron On Paper and make your own. Make your design, mirror it and print it on a color ink jet and grab the iron.

    Won't last forever, but for only 8 shirts it would be the way to go.

    This, but yeah don't expect it to last much past your trip. Sold at Walmart with the printer paper

    Yeah, it'll start fading sooner than later, but for a small order for a one time event it may be a feasible way to go.

    I know Broken Arrow only requires you to place an order of 6 shirts minimum.

    Playing favoritism here, but Signify in Ames also does custom screenprinting with a low minimum order.
