Since i work for a t-shirt company i thought maybe it would be a good time
to jump in:

Shirts are relatively easy. Cafepress blows. Well - they are awesome for
quick one offs and what not. But if you want a good quality print or
t-shirt, you will have to have it done at a professional screen printing
place. It shouldn't be too hard to gauge how many people are interested and
then make an order.

Chicago has a bundle of great screen printers.

At threadless we use a place called Shirts our business (
http://www.sobltd.com/). They are really solid. The only catch is that you
have to have a batch of 144 or more before they will print anything. We also
use sharprint (http://www.sharprint.com/), although i think they also have a
minimum order. If 144 is too many (it probably is) then propaganda(
http://www.propagandatshirts.com/) is pretty decent.

Any of those places could help move art from computer to shirt and help
scale and color it appropriately.

Hope this is helpful.
