Such as Epson will serve for the PVC though you will have to seek advice from the printer maker Epson/Canon about ink suitability.
Bottom feed ptinter[HP] would have potential feed problems.

As for the 5mm Acrylic- if you think it will take a warm iron. think about 'Inkjet transfer media.
Primarily for fabrics- cotton T shirts- it may do the trick
