Follow My Shirt On Twitter!

I really love Twitter, so much so that I spend a goodly chunk of my day posting my thoughts online and following other users.  One of the people that I follow, @corrinrenee, recently blogged about her new Twitter t-shirt.  I wanted one, but I would have to make it myself.  I already had iron-on transfer paper for the printer, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to put together, right?

The original EPS file can be found on @tedmurphy‘s site.  Ted created the file and allows others to customize it.  I didn’t have Illustrator, so I loaded the graphics file into Adobe Photoshop Elements instead.  This allowed me to add my own Twitter handle to the image and change the colors, although I had to change some preferences to fix the font kerning.

I couldn’t decide on a t-shirt color (“Twitter blue” or my usual khaki?), so I got both.  They were only $5 at Target, so worth the cost for this experiment.  After flipping the image, I printed it onto the iron-on transfer paper.  Following the directions, I ironed the paper onto the shirts for three minutes and then peeled the backing off.  They didn’t turn out bad at all.  What do you think?
