http://bluepdx.com is pretty good.

I printed 500 shirts a few months ago at a different press. Colored  
shirts (Gildan 1000 for unisex; Bella for girls) with three ink tones  
came to $6/shirt, as best I recall. Next time, I'll probably try and  
find something to replace the Gildan 1000s; they aren't the best  
shirts... they're just decent. See if you can get a heavier cotton  
weight, they'll drape better/crinkle less.

Other thoughts: if you make the shirts generic enough - more about  
Portland and Perl than about the Portland Perl Mongers, I wouldn't be  
surprised if we could sell a 100-150 (25 to current members, 75+ to  
the attendees) charging, at say $15/shirt.
