Fabric Decals?

Does anybody know what exactly the vinyl-eqsue decal material occasionally seen on commercially manufactured plush is? To be specific, the markings on these Kyogre/Groudon/Rayquaza plush (though I've seen it used on a fair amount of non-Pokemon too):

I imagine that intricate details would require some stellar xacto knife cutting skills for something better done with an embroidery machine, but the material might be useful for details on smaller plush or otherwise trying to mimic a UFO catcher plush look. Does it have a specific name and is it available for purchase anywhere?

Hmm, they remind me of iron on transfers.. I don't know much about those though.

I suspect its silk-screening.
