I had such high hopes for the 5K "Club Shannon" t-shirts. I was going to use new methods (transfer paper, fabrics, etc) and make them awesome. But I dropped the ball. So I ended up just using fabric paint. My method was not the best but it ended up working out. In the past I have used stencils and fabric paint to put words/phrases on shirts. But that was annoying. So this time I decided I was going to use stamps instead of stencils. This was also kind of annoying because the stamps that I bought didn't work that well. Anyways, this is what I did....
1. Buy t-shirt from Michael's (or wherever, they were $2.50 each when I bought them) and fabric paint
2. Wash the t-shirts
3. Lay a ruler on the shirt or mark the shirt with some sort of sewing marking pencil/pen so you know where you want your words and so they stay centered.
5. After you stamp each letter go over it with a paint and a paint brush to make sure the letter is all the way filled in. I had to do this because my stamps did not work that well. The stamps sort of just made an outline that I filled in with a paint brush.
6. Let these dry and present them to your friends on 5K day. It will make them super strong and ready to meet the challenge of running a 5K.
