It would be cool though to have a personalized image alongside the Age of Strife & Gaming figures logos :D

Pretty much anything can be put on them, take a look at the normal Spreadshirt site here: http://www.spreadshirt.net

However, if you wanted the Age of Strife logo on anything you customise yourself I'd first have to release the design into the marketplace so that it's available to use on any item.

I don't think you can put multiple things on a single "side" (eg front or back) except for multiple lines of text, but I haven't delved too much into the customisation options.

You can design your own logos to put on pretty easily - you just need to be able to create a vectored EPS file (not a Photoshop EPS as that's just a bitmap file in a Postscript wrapper, it has to be a proper vector image), I use Inkscape to create mine although you could use Adobe Illustrator or another commercial package. Both Inkscape and Illustrator are able to convert bitmap (ie BMP, JPEG, TIF, etc) images to vectored by tracing the outlines of the images, but you may well find you'll have to do quite a bit of tweaking to get it to look right. Once you've got the EPS you can upload to Spreadshirt and once they've approved it (they need to check that the design is actually able to be produced by their machines, and that you're not using copyrighted images) then you can put the design on pretty much anything they sell - although for small items your image needs to be scaleable down to small sizes.
