I am a runner and would absolutely kill to have woot shirts available printed on technical fabric (those lovely moisture-wicking/dri-fit tees). They would probably cost more than $12, but I would much rather pay more to buy cute/clever workout shirts at woot than something boring from brooks or nike. What do you say, woot? Hook a sister up!!!

Mmmmmmmm... hard to print, impossible to cure. Look at the high tech shirts out on the market. They are either blank, have something sewed on them, dye sublimated(bike spandex) or have a very small one color logo strategically placed. Post a link if you,ve have had a different experience.

I'm just an unfrozen caveman and don't know very much, but wouldn't a huge blob of inks on your fancy wicking tech shirt rather negate the functionality of it?

move along

Yeah, there's that too. Large prints like The Realm of Every Game are pretty "unbreathable".

I suppose if Coffee Levels Critical or Green Space was offered, it could work out ...

This is another reason bike jerseys and the like are Dye Sublimated(white fabric is dyed instead of printing to retain flexibility and breathability). That process is done before the garment is assembled.
