Thirty years ago, I remember my dad buying bulk t-shirts from one of several companies advertised in the back of magazines. These shirts would have random company logos in random languages, and were clearly a way for t-shirt printers around the world to get rid of overstock. It was like a surprise box every time.

I want to make a custom t shirt (mainly as a gift). I want decent quality shirts with a simple print on the front. Very small batch, between 2-10. Any suggestions online or in SF? I want much better quality than cafe press or whatever.

Going back to work after maternity leave, but a size bigger so I have to get new clothes. I hate clothes shopping and I don't have time to browse the stores anyway. My work wardrobe staples are bootcut jeans and fitted jersey long-sleeve t-shirts with a nice-looking print. I got jeans but I'm missing the top part! [more inside]

MeFi, I want to flex my muscles! More specifically, I want a T-shirt that looks like a muscular male chest. Cartoon abs would be ideal but photorealistic abs will be okay too. I would like the shirt to be in color, have the printed abs be wide enough to cover my chest so it looks like I have a six pack rather than looking like a picture
of abs, and be available in a men's/unisex small. Under $20 including shipping would be ideal too.
is the closest I can find to what I need but is too large, too expensive and I'd honestly prefer cartoony abs. Halp?

A large group of friends will be running a 5k in October. I'm wanting to get some custom team shirts designed for the group, but I don't want to have to fool with collecting money from everyone. So what I'm looking for is somewhere...
I can upload my design for the shirts.
I can send out a link to the participants and let everyone order on their own.
The shirts are not openly available to folks outside the group. (I understand that someone might be able to forward the group's link. I'm just not really wanting it available on the open marketplace.)
From what I'm seeing on sites like Cafepress or Spreadshirt, I can't limit who can buy or will I have to place the whole order myself. It is entirely possible that I'm missing something, though.
Decent quality is a plus as well.
Thanks in advance!!

I'm from Canada and I am attending a conference and need to select my t-shirt size from a supplier in Denmark. Does anyone know how a women's 2XL compares to a 3XL in Denmark - like what the bust and waist measurements are? Would these sizes be similar to a US/Canada 2XL and 3XL?
Here is the polo t-shirt that we're getting.

Please help me, Mefi!!! I have been looking for the perfect t-shirt for years, with little success. I want those t-shirts I see all the other women wearing - soft, lightweight but not completely see-through, baggy but not boxy, loose but still flows nice on one's curves.

My husband really likes this t shirt
and his birthday is in a few weeks. Problem: website is in Kanji (I think-?) and I can't see the 'Happy Birthday' one anywhere. It it can't be found online, do you know if the site has an actual physical shop anywhere? I have friends in Tokyo/Kyoto who might be able to send it over if it's available. HALP (and thank you!)

My favourite t-shirts are on their last legs, and the place where I bought them (Principles for Men) no longer exists. They're black, v-neck, with side seams and vents, and very much designed as outerwear. The fabric is heavy, perhaps even a little heavier than Hanes Beefy or Fruit of the Loom Heavyweight (6.1oz) and most store/fancy-brand shirts use much thinner cloth. Any suggestions? US sources as a first option, but ones in the UK are useful as well.

My current wardrobe consists of jeans and a Gap V-neck T
. I am at the point where I need to replace my t-shirts (they are wearing out). Do I stick to the Gap shirts or is there something better out there for a similar or lower price? Some options I've found are Uniqlo
(but they always seem to be sold out) or Everlane
. Also, any sizing suggestions would be great too! I currently wear a large Gap shirt, but with Everlane it looks like I'd need to go up to an XL (I figured this by comparing chest size from Gap to Everlane). Is that correct?

Lands' End used to make what they called a heavyweight shirt. It was 100% cotton, tagless, fabric was a little coarse and it had a very satisfying weight. They also weren't too long and fit my somewhat-short torso well. They don't make it anymore! Do you know the shirts I'm talking about? Have you found a replacement?

My boyfriend has an awesome new t-shirt with a large, thick, flat image screened(?) on the front that bunched up and creased after the first wash-and-dry. Is there a way to get rid of the creases and folds in the image? And then what's the best way to care for it from here on out? [more inside]

I want to buy a shirt with a slogan on it, but no shirt with that slogan exists. Thus, I wish to cause its existence. Because my skills of an artist are meager, I don't want to do this myself on cafepress/spreadshirt/etc. Thus, I wish to ask YOU, metafilter, these questions: (a) where can I go or whom can I ask for my t-shirt-slogan-designing needs? (b) how much is this sort of thing likely to cost? (If too much, I'll just pass.)

I want to start my own T-shirt company (i know I know. Don't roll your eyes). I am a graphic designer and would like to create shirts that are stylish. Basic screen printed shirts with sayings etc. While I know how to screen print I think my best bet is designing and then getting them printed through, well, an online shirt printing company. The trouble is most of them are very limited and have just the tacky crew neck shirt kind of thing. I don't want to do cafe press or zazzle style printing. So, What's a good company to go with? any suggestions? For example take a look at JacVanek.com Not crazy about her designs but her shirts are what I'm looking to print on. That urban outfitters style! Thanks!

I need a ridiculously soft white t-shirt to complete the perfect pyjamas, the most comfortable money can buy. What brands would you recommend, and where can I buy them (delivery by Friday to, or physically in, London)?
Additionally, what goes towards making a t-shirt soft?

I've been toying with the idea of starting a website that's sort of half forum, half store. I have a general understanding of how the web works, but I haven't done anything web design-ey for about ten years, and even then I was definitely quite amateur. What would I need to do to get going?
