Good point, but many processes nowadays will not print the color white.  It 
won't cover.  That is the reason for white shirts. For small runs, a 
computer-generated appliqué or decal is printed on transfer paper (don't 
know the correct name for it). It is applied in a heated press, like a big 
flat iron and for good color transfer, there must be polyester in the shirt. 
A pure cotton T shirt won't take the color as well.  Silk screening requires 
an initial screen outlay and then only through volume can the price be 
gotten down to a reasonable amount.
