    @masked, sorry to tell you the answer is no, the inkjet printer won’t do that sort of work, you’ll need a screen printer for that.

    But there are Vinyl inkjet materials that will work quite successfully, you can get several different types of Vinyl, and I am sure one of them would suit you needs, you can also get inkjet Vinyl sample packs to help you with your choice.
    Check it out, they are located in Texas.

    Yeah it would need be around 0.5-0.8mm thick for it to stay round ? Didn't think vinyl would do this tbh

    can you use this type of printable vinyl with adhesive backing to stick it on your vinyl plates ?
