There 100's of diff. types of vinyl that can be used for diff. applications. Vinyl's used for sign making are subject to how long you want them to last, if you want to cut them, print on them, laminate, apply wet or dry. If it is for perm. or temp. use.
Solvent printers use water based inks to print on certain vinyl and UV on others... Some vinyls can be used for textiles. Again some are cut only and some can be printed on and both are heat transferred with a heat press.
What are you trying to do and maybe I can answer how you can accomplish it....

vinyl is good for numbers on t's and jerseys
but gives a heavy plastic look on designs.

Now, there are new products that look and feel less shinny and more like screen printed. They are flexable and made for spandex, Ultraspan 2 or suerflex, etc.

Also, LabelTrans, is clear so it can be used if you want to create tagless tees.

So, not the old vinyl that we used to use for numbers and names on jerseys...
