    Screened in T-Shirts?

    I don't know if anyone could help me out on this or offer any suggestions, but I have all of these old picture books, magazines, comics, etc that I like to use in crafts and one of the ideas I had was to use them as either t-shirts or totes.

    I thought I saw this at Michael's a long time ago but maybe I'm going insane. It's a program that you could use to trace the stencil and then iron it on.

    Is there anything like this or is there anything else that I can use? Maybe a cheap silkscreen? Thanks to all those who apply.

    What exactly are you wanting to do? Make screenprints out of the illustrations in the books? Apply the pages directly onto something?

    Probably the most instant-gratification way to put those pictures onto t-shirts would be to scan them and print them out onto iron-on transfer paper. I've had mixed results using the stuff - it can be kind of tricky, and not all brands of paper are the same quality.

    Scanning the images and making them into screenprints is totally possible, and can be fun - but I'll tell you right now, it's a multi-step, time-consuming and messy process. If that's what you're really interested in, I can give you more details.

    Oh yeah, and don't forget there may be copyright issues with the artwork.
