This is  covered by existing ASF trademark policy.  See the section
called "Using Apache trademarks on merchandise" here:

The simplest method, I think, is to have have a volunteer design a
shirt, seem permission from the PPMC for the use of the logo and then
work with a 3rd party, like CafePress, to print the shirts.    There
are probably other, less expensive options, but they would be more
complicated, in terms of funding and distribution.
