The silk screen Idea gave me another Idea. Try the new Iron on transfer
sheets that you can print on an Ink Jet Printer then Iron on to a tape to
sew on the shirt. I haven't tried it yet but I've seen demos that have
had T-shirts done and washed over 40 times and had barely faded. I'm
thinking of trying it for our new Troop neckerchiefs you could print
several neckercheif designs on a sheet of transfer paper cut them out and
iron them on. A lot of name tags could be done on a sheet.
As far as permanent ink try rubber stamp stores (decorative hobby
stamping) they now stamp T-shirts and have fabric ink in lots of colors.
