Girls? Clothes???????????????
Okay, I Prettymuch Wear The Same Outfit (Different Clothes But The Same Style) Every Day. Flannel Shirt And Jeans. I Don'T Like Brand Names, Sweat Pants, Or Sweaters With Hoods On Them. What Should I Wear To School? I Like Wearing Different Things..... I'M A Girl, 15. And No Spandex Either.

Try taking some fashion risks, things that maybe other girls arn't wearing. I'm 15 also so i understand the whole fashion delema. All the girls in my school seriously all wear the same ****. Slutty shirts, and tight jeans. I wear more of whatever comes to me, i used to be a tomboy, until i started getting into modeling and now i'm a total fashion fanatic. Baggy sweatshirts, leggins and heels are a cute outfit. khaki skinny jeans and a sweater are cute also, sweaters are very in this season. I know you said you don't like sweatpants but they now make skinny sweatpants, that are super cute.

I would try stores like forever21, and h&m. They don't normally have brandname stuff, and they have very unique styles, and they don't really sell sweatpants,sweatshirts with hoods, so try there.
Goodluck 🙂

Screenprinting from a hand-cut stencil is easy. Just get some screenprinting paper (it's smooth on one side, rough on the other), cut out your design, put the paper on a screen with the smooth side towards the screen and print with a squeegee. A screen is made like a frame except you don't have to mitre the corners, just but them, then staple on a screen (traditionally silk but now polyester), tape around the edges. A squeegee is a long (same width as your inner screen) piece of wood with rubber running along the edge. Buy screenprinting ink (for textiles). Place the screen over the fabric, put the ink on top of the screen and pull the ink down with the squeegee. You should get about 20 or so prints out of this. It sounds complicated but is really easy. If you're near an art school where they do printmaking, you can drop in and they'll show you. Art schools are usually pretty friendly. Good luck.

How Do I Get A Design I Made On Photoshop Onto A T-Shirt?
I Want To Make An Origional Cobra Starship T-Shirt Using Pictures I Got At Their Concert, But I Don't Know How I Would Get The Design Onto A T-Shirt After I Designed It. I Don't Want To Make It Look Cheap, I Want It To Look Good, And I Don't Know What Products Or Programs I Need On The Computer To Do That, Or If There Is Another Way, So If Anyone Can Help Me Out, It Would Be Really Appreciated!

If there is a shop near where you live that make prints on T-shirts using the silk-screen or iron-on process, then you could call them and ask them to help you. You can bring your own design for them to put on a t-shirt that you will buy at their shop.

Another far less expensive way is using the iron-on pages of T-shirt transfers (they work only on white t-shirts). You take a page, print the design on it with your inkjet printer and then you can iron the design on a t-shirt. You can find these and more info on their website www.myPrintWorks.com

How Does Screen Printing Work?
I Am Looking To Make A Shirt. I Have No Experience In Screen Printingg, And I'D Like A Crash Course In It. Of Course, I Am Going To Do Further Research (I Just Like To Stress Out All My Resources). Basically, The Things I'D Like To Know Are: How Does It Work? What Are The Steps Involved In Transferring It Onto A Shirt? Are There Any Better Alternatives To Screenprinting Onto Clothing? Am I Able To Get An Image I Have Created Online (With Lots Of Various Colors) And Somehow Get It Transferred Exactly Or Really Close To How It Looked From On A Computer To A Shirt? What Are Some Good T-Shirt Making Websites? Preferably Ones Where I Can Buy One Shirt And See If I Am Satisfied With Their Services. Or Should I Disregard Online Services And Go To A Local Shop?

Screen printing involves using a fabric with holes in it (like a window screen but finer) and some of the holes are blanked. The screen is laid down on the surface to get an image - shirt pulled tight, paper, canvas, metal, glass - and a thick paint or ink is pushed across the screen and through the holes with a rubber squeegee.
Masking the holes can be done manually or with photo sensitive emulsion.
To do multiple colors, several screens are required and some alignment method is required.
Because of this doing a one off in multi colors is about as costly as doing ten or more and they will want money up front.
Other choices are printing the image on special paper with inkjet inks and ironing the back of the paper to transfer the ink - multiple colors, hard to do intense colors
or printing directly onto the cloth with an inkjet printer designed for the purpose - you can see these (I believe) in mall kiosks that will take a picture and print it on the shirt - although some or most may do it by printing with common printer and ironing on. Go and check.

Getting A Drawing Screen Printed?
Ok I Was Just Wondering When U Get Something Screen Printed On A Shirt Can You Jus Hand Them Like A Drawing And Have Them Screen Print That Or Do U Have To Like Put The Drawing Like Some Form So That It Can Be Screen Printed

The screen printers I know realize most people don't know how to make the screens themselves, so turning the art into a usable screen is part of the service they provide. Some prefer finished camera ready art work, or a hi-res jpeg image file. If you don't have that, then they can have a staff artist render your drawing so it's suitable for screening, at a cost, needless to say. If there are colours then you assist in colour selection. For large orders they will make a prototype or sample, then you approve the sample or ask for changes, then the final screenings will be done.

You can get varying service from different screeners, so you might want to shop around, especially if it's for a band shirt or a team shirt. Ask to see samples, ask for references, check with the better business people for complaints and don't pay everything up front, pay a bit at the beginning, then pay the remainder on delivery.
