And as and alternative for those outside EU:

Several sources in Thailand provides better T-shirts with excellent quality,
but beware of mispeling :-) and Un-American  XXL sizes :-(
(Witness locals from The Stammkneipe with excellent T-Shirts in lavish sizes
of a quality in both printing and fabric that promises to outlive the wearer :-)

If someone chooses to purchase a few kilos of printed T-shirts then I would suggest Frankfurt am Main (or vicinity) as a practical place to mail from. 
Deutsche Post AG gives an excellent compromise for both price and speed of delivery.
A Maxibrief would cost EURO 4.50 for max 500 grams within EU. (www.post.de)
