    I don't know but you better get advice from someone who knows what to use
    and where to get it, because some of that iron-on stuff plain sucks.

    No to iron on's, they will not last after a few washes, plus they will get very hot on the patch it self (body).

    Get some prices on silk screen, you might be surprized at the cost, I took some polo shirts to the chick that does mine, she just charged a set up fee of $40.00....so what ever I want to take to her she will do, towels, shirts, polo, I just pay for the ink and labor, pretty cheap.

    screen printing is cheaper and better quality.

    I think that screen printing on shirts is your best option and is probably less expensive then you think. Iron-ons will fall apart like others have said. I have embroidery done on polos and woollies.

    Dlawns,

    In your experience with silkscreens, what has the set up cost been?

    One thing that no one has mentioned yet-

    When you iron on a design, and you have black space, such as space between letters, where the color of the shirt would show through, it will be white, no matter what the color of the shirt.

    It will look like you slapped a sticker on the shirt with your logo on it, it really looks unprofessional.

    I got a local printer to embroider my shirts, for $15 each, including the shirt and embroidery, with no minimum. I paid them $15 up front to convert my logo to their format, but my logo was easy. I'm not sure that you can do it yourself for that price.

    Screen printing had something like a 100 minimum from them, but I like the stitching much better anyway.
