does anyone know anywhere to get this done?
There are quite a few places that will do that for you - there was a recent post in the general running section asking the same thing.
I've had tops printed by Tinwolf - though the printing is reflective for night time use, maybe not what you want. try your local Tshirt printers, most towns seem to have one these days.
bondaweb...print your name out in a chunky font, trace it backwards onto bondaweb, cut out leaving a half cm border. Iron onto your "name" fabric, cut out again right on the line. Peel off the backing, iron onto your T shirt. Use a pressing cloth and a dry iron.
...or you could carve your name in the back of your head with clippers, couldn't you KI?
I'm not allowed in hobbbycraft.
Kwilter - how does bondaweb stand up to washing?
and what about longevity?
Does it start to peel?
Just curious as it seems quite a good idea - though worried about the extra weight of the fabric - have you used it much with tech fabrics or fabrics with holes in?
I do like complete control over the process.
I really must get back into screen printing.
To be honest, when I bondawebbed my name on my vest, I went over it with a sewing machine just to make sure.
I've done some hot pads for in my kitchen with bondaweb though, and missed a couple of bits out for over sewing. It's held up fine to repeated washing at 30-40*, and hasn't peeled at all. That's 100% cotton though, not tech fabric.
I used cotton scraps on my vest, and it's fine.
Never tried screen printing, but between quilting, knitting, cross stitch, scrap booking and spinning, I think Rattler would divorce me if I came home with another new craft to try.
Thanks Kwilter for the info and PS + Loulabell for the laughs.
Maybe just get a fabric pen and write your name on the top.

, but if i put them acroos my shorts on the bum part it may look a tad strange if LOU drops off and im running on along with 'labell' printed across me bum!
My shorts have my Club-name across the 'rear' (& down the legs)...... but, that is the cycling shorts (and the Skin-Suit, & Bib-Tights)
** 'FastTrax' in Ilkley (West Yorkshire) offer one-off designs, on a range of clothing
At the minute, I'm looking into getting a training/after-race jacket embroidered up in the same font (& close as possible colours) to the running-club vest design.
'FastTrax' provide our vests, so I'm awaiting a reply from them
