Well if the feel of it is rubbery, chances are it's a screenprinted with a Hi-Density gel, or some other specialty ink that's on the market. The vinyl tends to feel a little more plastic & as stated previously can be very expensive. Do some research on specialty inks & get some sample sent to you from some ink manufacturers. Hope this helps...

I'm a little confused about the stretchability factor but I'll take a stab at the answer. I believe what you are looking for are the Inkjet For Darks transfer papers finished with a glossy overlay sheet. The sheets are available to purchase separately and are applied on top of the transfer.

I believe this is going to be the closest answer I have found..Im going to try the glossy overlay paper.. keep in mind, the shirts the local hip hop shops are FULL COLOR IMAGES, or B&W IMAGES. I dont think any screenprinting is involved with this procedure.. its definitly some kind of heat transfer.

i think you guys are heading in the right direction. being from new york, i have seen those shirts all over the place, and i have heard that they are made with some form of a clear plastic sheet, that is heat pressed over the design! keep up the good work!

The glossy overlay will make it glossy but it will not help it stretch.
