The sets on this list are full of vibrant colors that won't fade after a cycle in the washing machine. They're also generally quite affordable, so there's no reason not to pick up a pack, unleash your creativity, and turn a plain T-shirt, skirt, or hat into a masterpiece.

Editor's Notes

September 25, 2019:

Made sure to include plenty of variety regarding both color and thickness, as some projects require very thin pens while chisel tips work better for others. Some options, like the Creative Joy Brilliant and the US Art Supply Super, have dual-tips, so you can work with each color in the thickness of your choice. If you have limited time, make sure to check how long it takes for the ink to set. Some simply need to sit for a few days, while others need to be ironed or put through a hot cycle in the dryer in order to cure properly.
