Cheap custom t-shirt website

Where can I order 25 color shirts with a single-color custom design (that I can upload) on the front? I'm looking for as cheap as possible.

I need to do the shirts for a camp that is starting on Sunday. The shirts need to arrive by next Thursday, and I can't spend more than $200 total. I have my own design ready to upload, but I haven't been able to find cheap non-bulk places.

A friend's screen printing operation - shipping may be extra. He's good people.

Response by poster: Thanks for the links, but it looks like both of those put me over $200, unfortunately.

Given your tight timeline, I would think a local shop would be your best bet. You would definitely save shipping time, and possibly shipping costs as well. Try looking for "screen printing" in the phone book.

If the online and local options don't work out, as a last resort, you can use iron-on transfer paper. Be careful to use the right paper for white/light vs. dark/color shirts. Craft stores and office supply stores should carry this stuff. Some papers require you to use 100% cotton shirts. And practice first! Good luck!

Response by poster: Ok, I calculated incorrectly, was pretty cheap--just about the cheapest place I found, and the owner is really nice, offered to expedite the shipping and even gave me a discount!
