It looks too complicated for vinyl, I can't imagine how long it would take to weed if it was??

I would guess at screen printed as well.

My guess would be some form of screen printing, simply just because I cannot fathom the weeding required on that design! :)

There is a gold vinyl, but I dont think this is done with vinyl. It apprears to be screen printed. If you are looking just for the gold vinyl, you can find it at places like imprintables and specialty graphics. I think heatpressvinyl also has it. There are several places that carry the metalic vinyl. But I still say the image above is more then likely screen printed. Hope this helps :)

Agreed. I've used the foil from Imprintables & you won't be producing anything that intricate with it. That shirt must be screen printed.

Actually, it looks like there are some plastisol transfer companies that do foil transfers like this in a one step process. Check out this page from AirWavesInc: Contemporary Graphics

The bottom left one has foil designs like the one above.
so do you think i would have to still get it printed like plastol and put foil over it then press it? i seen i video out there some where but cant find it

I'm not sure how it's done, but if you contact a few of the companies that do this, they should be able to give you all the details on how to order and how it is applied.

That particular transfer I linked to said it was "one step", so I'm guessing you don't have to put foil over it and press it.
