I want to stencil shirts and then sell them...but I'm not sure if I can sell a shirt that has a tag in it,(Hanes, for example).  Does anyone know where I could buy plain cotton shirts that don't have a company tag in them?,, if that is even possible. ( Or would i have to sew my own shirts Shocked )

You can resell shirts without a problem, it falls under the "first sale" law.  As long as you paid for the shirts, you can sell them, no matter their tag or company (unless it specifies that it is not for resale, but I've never heard of that on a shirt).  American Apparel is very popular for stenciling shirts.

The bigger issue is the images.  You can not use copyrighted or trademarked images (ie band logos, brand names, copies of Threadless shirts, etc).  It's also wrong to use someone else's stencil without express permission to sell them (I wouldn't sell shirts with Banksy/Shepard Fairy/Logan Hicks* images).  The best idea is to make your own image and create your own stencil from that.  Originality sells better than copies, especially in the craft community.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.  I just researched a whole bunch of copyright info for the ATC forum.

*If anyone can recreate a Logan Hicks stencil, I would love to see it....that man is inhuman in his talent
