As for the brand of paper to use, if you find paper at a store such as Walmart, Michaels, or even from trade shows, odds are it will not last. Avery is the exception here which can be purchased at Walmart or Office Supply stores, but it is expensive and should only be used if you are making 5-10 shirts.
I use avery and they are the best I've found. I've had the package for a long time and just can't see buying more (in any brand) till I use it.
Just thought I'd throw a testimonial in:
I have used the lower quality stuff and it will last longer if you trim your picture or text out, but tends to crack and fade each wash and sticks together if it gets warm. Which will rip or tear your picture when you remove it from the dryer and sometimes washer.
Go with the nicer stuff people trust me! It's so worth the money! I can't remember how long I've had my avery package, but if you are doing small numbers of shirts like me it's just fine to get. Mine cost 5.00-ish and had 12 sheets in it. It has lasted at least four years but I don't sell shirts or anything like that. I just like to be able to make some for swaps. Which I have done:
But walmart has changed prices since then so I have no idea what the going rate is.

Blank shirts can be found at Michaels usually for $2 each. Walgreens has also been selling cheap shirts for $2 each. i especially like them because they have some Gildan shirts which is what I use.
Another place to look is walmart! When stuff goes on sale it goes on sale! And hobby lobby has shirts for 3.00 which is not bad since they have up to 3x!
