you can download a month-long free trial of the entire adobe suite from their website. it's a great way to dive into the software and see which software you prefer to work with before you purchase...

There's a ton of helpful stuff here- just be aware some of the presentation formatting stuff has changed.

T shirt etc templates here and also some extras here

If you don't have software, you ideally want something that will let you draw in separate layers. If you're using a drawing tablet, or scanning in ink drawings, you could try GIMP (free software, look around on google). If you're drawing using a mouse straight onto the screen, you will probably want to look into vector graphics - Inkscape is a reasonable free option.

Look at the link Pyne shared - and read through it all before you start designing and submitting, it will help you a lot and save you some headaches.
