If you dont want to worry about copyright laws etc when making your own tee, here's a quick fix...
After finding that lots of the pictures I wanted to put on tees were copyright and noncommercial license only blah blah blah... I got sick of the search. So decided I'd try and make my own... Oh... and please dont steal my images... its easy enough to make your own :)

    First find a corner in your house where it's not too dim. Now cellotape two pieces of white paper on each wall close to the ground/table. Then place a piece of paper on the ground table so you're creating a white corner.

You could buy some iron transfer paper and print them onto that using an inkjet printer then just apply them with an iron. This method is ok for small prints, but if you're going to go a full A4 page, I'd recommend using a heatpress (sometimes companies will do it for next to nothing)... hope this helps Happy

It's too bad that my printer sucks because that's awesome! How do you apply them to shirts?
