What are you printing on? Shirts - could embroider the first, or screenprint or DTG, transfers are cheapest, sublimation etc.
The second is a simple label and should be screenprinted for longevity - but you need to pick the ink and media carefully.

Woodblock printing or relief printing was the first method used. It involved cutting out a design in relief on a block of wood, that is the design was left on the surface after the spaces between were cut away. The ink was applied to the surface portion and not allowed to run into the cut portion. The paper (or vellum) was then pressed onto the woodblock and picked up the ink from the surface of the wood. The printed portion of the paper, depending on the pressure, was compressed because the paper had been moistened slightly before pressing in order to pick up the ink more easily. Maps or prints made in this way are called "wood cuts" and this method was used until the early1500s.
