We have a local screen printer who gives us a good price. The
cost of the shirts are: Youth $3.50 each and Adult $4.50 each. We
sell them all for $6.00 each. The t-shirts are Hanes Beefy Tees, so
$6.oo is good price for such a high-quality shirt. As for the
design, each teacher in the district submits 3-4 pieces of artwork
from her students. The guideline is that it can only be 4 colors
(black counts as a color). What most of us do is just save any work
that fits the criteria and is appropriate and then send it in for
the contest. The kids don't know it's a contest, they are just
doing assignments. Then if their work was entered, we give them a
certificate. No one from my school has been chosen (yet!) so we
haven't made a big deal of it.
If you are thinking of this, ask your local screen printer about
prices, then just think of a topic that kids can do a painting on
and limit their pallette to 4 colors. Choose the one you like best
(or have a committee) and take orders. The first year we weren't
sure how it would go over, but we had an overwhelming response!
Especially to see their own artwork on a shirt!
Oh, there is also a company that was in attendance at the TAEA
convention that does student artwork on magnets, shirts, mousepads,
etc. They do it as a fundraiser. I can't think of the name right
off, but I'll find it and write back. Maybe you could contact them
for your first time! Good Luck!


(sorry so long....)
