How Do I Prepare a Graphic to Be Used in a Shirt?

Is there easy instructions or a guide that I can use to create a simple image to be used to print a t-shirt? It will be solid color text on a plain background.

This is the text I got from the person who will be printing the shirts:
The max imprint area for the front and back of the shirt is 12" W x 17" H. If you can send the original vector art for the design, that is preferred. Otherwise, please send whichever file you have and we can typically work with it but will let you know if we need a different format.
I am on a university campus and have access to photoshop. Is that the best program to do this, or something else? Is there a guide somewhere that would explain how to take text and get it ready for printing based on those specifications? Or can someone provide instructions?
I'm reasonably computer competent (I know things like basic html/css, R, STATA, latex, etc.), I just haven't done much on the design side of things before.
