So my friend is running for school president and we need to make about 50 shirts! I was wondering what would be the cheapest and easiest way to make them...they just need to say vote for me kinda thing.
We were thinking iron on but i think that could get expensive. Personally i'm a huge fan of freezer paper but making 50 of the same stencil seems like too much work. Any ideas? i was thinking maybe make one spencil out of something hard and spray painting i dunno i don't want i to look cheap and crappy we have to get college students to be willing to wear them.

Any help would be gladly appreciated! Thanks so much for reading -ashgav

One idea. You can get letter stickers, big sheets of them, at Wal-mart. They come in a few sizes. And use them to put your message in the shirts. Then do a paint splatter kind of thing over the letters. So when you peel the letters off you, have a splatter with the words inside. Then you won't have to cut anything out (which is the most time consuming part) and you can reuse the letters. Hope this helps  Smiley

You could try the cheap silkscreening method. http://community.livejournal.com/craftgrrl/3674467.html I've never used it, but I bet it'll work well for this type of thing.

You could always get you hands on some transparencies (Office Supply Shops have them as well as your local Wal-Mart, or equivalent supercenter), and print on it with your printer...and cut out like a normal freezer paper. Use a little spray adhesive to attach to shirt....use, over and over again...

I haven't tried this method but i bet it will work just fine if you have a few shirts to make
