Raised printing is ushally achieved by using specialist inks that expand when they are cured. This link is from another forum member I'm not sure how these are done but I would guess they are transfers that are heat applied. http://www.addventurepro.com/3dt-three-dimensional-t-shirt-graphics.htm
Using a special effect on a computer might give this look when printed but it will be a 'flat' print.
You can use a "puff" additive for screen printing inks to give printing a raised look. You can also ask the screen printer if they can do "high density" printing, which will give the design a raised look (it will actually be raised on the garment).
If you want simulate the look, you could probably do this with your graphics program with varying degrees of success.
you can use the embossing tool to make your art have depth. In order to get the raised fell on the shirt you will need to print using specialy inks, such as Puff like Rodney mentioned or any of the other specialty inks, High Density, Rock Base, Crackle, Sponge and gells to name a few.
