Does anyone know where I can get reasonably priced (translation: cheap!!!) decent band t-shirts? I'm sure most, if not all of you have got an idea of my taste...

There are a couple of band shirts I have been after for an eternity....that I can't really expect cheap...

Slowdive - Just For A Day shirt XL (yellow orange design on black shirt)
Wedding Present - Hit Parade 1 (gold design on green shirt - I actually have this, but, have accidentally put a blim hole in it...and it has faded a little over the years)

Any answers greatly appreciated....

Wow...that was quick...thanks, Sam :)
Looks a bit like a bootleg to me (slightly different design to what I remember), but, may well go for it anyway... :)

I used to have one of those, though not XL. I wonder what happened to it...

I think I may have given mine away to a charity shop because it was a bit too short - should have gone for XL!

Most shoegaze fans were midgets, to be fair. We never belonged, tonieee...

I've done well for t-shirt purchasements recently, a lovely screenprinted Gringo one, a green WeePOP! one and a h0tt Ghost Box one.

I'm all about the yellow/red combo.

We'll have to make sure we choreograph it so we're never seen wearing it at the same time. It would be just awful to be seen out in the same outfit as someone else - I'd simply die!

Making your own t-shirts

Post by alongwaltz » Fri Dec 11, 2009 23:39

I want to attempt screenprinting one day but right now I don't really have the resources or the facilities for it.

Anyone make up their own shirts?

I assume there's software and paper where you can print up your own iron-ons at home.

There's also probably stores or websites that will just do it all for you, right?

Actually I think most photo places do. Maybe even the photo hut at Wal-Mart.

Recommendations?

I'm not looking for mass quantities of 100 of the same shirt. I'm actually looking specifically to make one-off t-shirt designs to change up my wardrobe and make some fun zine shirts for friends.

I have a screen at home which I use for making shirts.
I got it as part of a t-shirt making kit from an art shop with everything included, even a pinny (!) for £30.
Rather than going through all the priming and exposing to light lark though, we just make a stencil and print through that.
Most recently I made a Husker Du shirt using a template off the internet and some acrylic paint (mixed with a textile primer).

In Nottingham there's a place in the market called Splat who will print anything you want onto a t-shirt for a tenner, or £12 for front and back print. That includes the t-shirt!
It's awesome!
They do image prints or vinyl prints if it's just one colour.
I'm planning on getting a Muffs t-shirt made up there in either pink sparkly print or leopard print.
Best thing about it, they do it While You Wait!
I imagine most cities will have a shop like this.

My girlfriend got me this shirt for xmas. It's my new favourite shirt.
I may be ugly and hate-filled but... wait, what was the third thing you said?

Pockets Filled With Matches are no more, but we still have copies of our e.p. 'If Time Heals You' for sale, if you'd like one

I screen print on my own. I would recommend doing iron-ons for full color designs and photographs. Screen printing is fantastic, but with the limited resources and money that I have, it's very difficult to do multi-colored designs. For instance, I screen printed my own Beat Happening shirt (their debut album cover), but I had to use iron-ons for my Psychocandy one.

Has anyone ever tried just drawing with marker pen straight onto a plain tee? I've done it a couple of times now.

The first time I tried it, I really wanted to go for that charming, homemade sort of look, but was left a bit baffled when a couple of friends asked where I'd bought my t shirt. The whole operation was undermined by my unwitting professionalism :(
