Vinyl excels in one area more than others: the ability to produce dark-colored shirts in small runs. Great for customizing names on athletic apparel, or any sort of 1-3 color custom stuff on dark shirts. So if you're looking for more opitons when printing on a few shirts at a time, a vinyl cutter may be beneficial =)

Basically, yes. There are some nuances to make the best quality, however - getting different ink, trimming the transfer out, etc.
