Help making Einstein Graphic Tee

  1. Jun 9, 2013 #1
    So, I'm a big fan of this t-shirt...


    However, I don't feel anyone should have to pay $30+ (after shipping) for a t-shirt. I've tried making pretty much the same image on one of these custom t-shirt sites, however whenever I add the image, the t-shirt color on the websites is a different shade of black from the one I use. Therefore, my shirt looks has a square outline of where the image was added. I've tried matching the colors, however I did not prevail. Can any one with better skills at photo editing point me in the right direction / how to get this for less money.. Thanks

    Can you make the black color "transparent", then save in a format (like .png) that supports transparency?
    Software like Photoshop or GIMP or ImageMagick can do this... there are probably online tools that can also do this.

    That exact same design is also on Society6 and the base price is lower there.
