They come in different colors, materials, and designs.

Heat transfer vinyl

If you want to decorate a T-shirt with your own unique design, heat transfer vinyl is the perfect way to go. You can create unique T-shirts at home in minutes. You can design your own t-shirt in the Cricut Design Space and apply it to the desired shirt. To apply a design, all you need to do is follow the easy steps outlined below. Heat transfer vinyl comes in various kinds and you can use any of them with great success.

Screen printing

There are many advantages to screen printing on vinyl T-shirts, including the ability to make rich and vibrant designs. Unlike digital printing, screen prints do not crack, fade, or run and allow for high-volume processing. However, the process is expensive and requires specialized equipment, and is best suited for one or two-color designs. For photo-like images, you will need more advanced methods, including a flash dryer.


If you’d like to print your own vinyl T-shirts, you’ll need to cut out your design first. Then you’ll want to transfer that design to your shirt. The easiest way to do this is with a heat press. Heat presses use high-temperature water-based ink to transfer vinyl to a wide variety of fabrics. Heat presses also work on nylon and jute/hessian bags.


The film used in the production of vinyl T-shirts is called PVC. This type of film is thicker than standard vinyl and is more durable and stretchable. Its properties are perfect for use in t-shirt transfer graphics and it feels like part of the garment. However, it is not recommended for use on children’s apparel. PVC-based vinyl T-shirts should be used only for adult wear.

PU film

The Easy Cut Soft PU (20″ width) heat transfer vinyl is a versatile, eco-friendly material that is easy to cut, weed, and apply to clothing. The soft, flexible material allows fabric to stretch and holds its shape well. This type of film is perfect for printing high-quality designs, numbering, and lettering on garments. Here are a few examples of how you can use it.

CAD cuttable vinyl T-shirt transfers, also known as T-shirt vinyl and heat-pressed vinyl, are transfer materials that can be created using a vinyl cutter and vector software. Heat transfer films are ideal for creating 1-3 color logos that can be used with other technologies, such as screen printing or rhinestones. As an added bonus, they can last for the life of the shirt.

Artwork on vinyl t-shirts

If you’re looking for a fun, inexpensive way to personalize your t-shirts, consider printing your artwork on vinyl t-shirts. Printing vinyl uses a heat press to melt the designs onto the fabric. This method is ideal for customizing wacky concepts such as a musical or a theatre icon. Unlike screen-printed shirts, vinyl t-shirts can go through hundreds of washing cycles without peeling off.
