Hi /diy/. Newfag here.
So I basically have 2 black t-shirts with stamps that I don't like. Both stamps are from their respective factories and are your regular shirt stamp, but a little bold/salient; you can really feel them when you pass your fingertip over it.
I want to take those stamps off because the shirts are great and I want to keep them. How do I do that?
I've browsed youtube and found some videos showing how to take off similar stamps from football/soccer shirts. I think the material for that kind of shirt is different from mine, so is the process the same? I've googled and stuff but I'm still anxious of damaging 2 great shirts.
Any tips? Here is one of the vids btw

Are they black? Cause thats all the info you given us sperglord. You didn't tell us what material they are made of. How can we tell you if they are the same material based solely on the description of "black t-shirt".

They're both made of jersey fabric.
I have an official football shirt and it's a different material than that. I'm not from a English speaking country, so, hoping the names for materials are the same, my football shirt is made of a material called 'dry'.

Also, I emphisized the black colour aspect because as far as I know, black can be a quite 'sensitive' colour to work with in fabric, as opposed to white.

Chances are the ink type is plastisol. It is an ink that is applied to the shirt, while the shirt is about 80 degrees F. After the ink has been applied, it is cured at 280-350 degrees F. After curing, you are not getting the design off the shirt.

The video you posted was of vinyl, cut out with a plotter, and manually "ironed" on with a heat press like in the picture shown. More likely of a chance to get it off the of the T-shirt, yet still very unlikely.
