Noel Leeming's Computer City, Harvey Norman and those kind of shops have packs of the special paper that you print on then iron onto teeshirts. The Warehouse Stationery did too last time I was there.

Can't say whether the shops will do the printing for you... they might be more willing to take your pictures, convert to transfers then put them onto the teeshirts for you. You can always ask them though. :-)

A few tips: make sure you have good quality teeshirts otherwise they'll look ghastly after a few rounds in the washing machine. I would buy one and give it a wash to test it first rather than buy a handful and find out they're rubbish. Some go really out of shape after getting a dunking.

Also, when you've got the print on wash and dry them inside out to stop the print fading too quickly. :-)

I haven't bought any of those teeshirts before so I couldn't say. It would be a good idea to try one first. Better to find out if they wash up well before rather than after, wouldn't it?
