Good quality white t-shirts are about $6.00 USD. (because I know
what I pay for them in CDN$). Silk-screening on shirts is all
about setup. So if you leave out the price of the t-shirt, it's
only marginally more money to print 500 shirts than it is to
print 100 shirts. If I were doing 100 shirts, I could sell
them for about $12.00USD and that's 4 color. For B&W, I could
sell them for about $11.00USD. There's no compelling reason to
go to B&W just to save $1.00 per shirt. (B&W is a 1-color
process since the 'white' is the t-shirt itself). All the
money is in the setup.
Again, I've actually _done_this_. I know what I pay.
I sell my NetBSDiality shirts for $20USD because I only made 40
of them when I had them made and there was screening on front
