Hi all I am wondering if you can print an image on say some siser easyweed stretch or any other tshirt vinyl and then press that image onto a shirt? Thanks so much to anyone who can help me out!

The different media are for different ink types.
I have samples of Color Jet III multi ink dark but have not tried them yet. They are injet printable with pigment.

As Olga1 noted, the answer to your original question is no. There are several different kinds of inkjet-printable vinyls available. The right one depends on what kind of printer and ink you have.
Siser does have several printable films, but they're for thermal resin (Gerber Edge, Summa DC3) or solvent based printers (PrismJET, MUTOH ValueJet, Roland etc).
For use with a common desktop inkjet printer there are lots of options, some of which "CutterPros" mentioned.
SignWarehouse offers a film similar to ColorJET III called EnduraTex DarkJet. It's designed for standard aqueous inkjet printers. These films are good for application on dark fabrics, but work best in a print and cut system with a vinyl cutter that can read registration marks and produce a "contour-cut" decal.
Otherwise, you'll have to cut around the print with a pair of scissors or apply a white square to the garment; not very attractive.
A recent blog article I wrote may shed more light on your options.

Peter,
That's a definite maybe. :) We don't have a Brother printer here to test it on, but if you'd like some sample sheets with which to do some testing of our own, I'll be happy to send you some.
We have tested it successfully with standard aqueous inkjet printers, Sawgrass ChromaBlast ink and the GO UNO laser printer.
