Default a newbie's problem with simple text on a tshirt

Hi, I am embarassed to ask but I tried for a couple of hours at Spreadshirt trying to design a simple t shirt with my own graphic and I could not get it to look good:

I am using Paint Shop Pro to put up a text graphic using a handwriting font (which was why I did not use the text mode in Sprshrt). I saved it in .png using the PSP png exporter with 1.7M colors and transparent checked for white but when I uploaded it, I could not read the text on the sample shirt. It was black text on a natural color shirt.

Now, I don't know if this is wysiwyg or just a representation for positioning the graphic on the shirt but I did not want to spend 20 bux and 2-3 days to find out. How come these guys don't have a tutorial for Noobs?

So can anyone provide a magic solution before I give up Thnx in advance
