Many people prefer the more simplistic but easier to use design software like Make the Cut and Sure Cuts a Lot.

Copyright and trademark violations Having to buy commercial licences for any cut files you want to use Tax obligations Hiring staff Running a social media profile across multiple platforms Dealing with rude customers Expertly photographing your creations to show them in their best light Managing the logistics of receiving and completing orders

There are a couple of popular tools that will help you here:

As for customers, I have often offered trades, which led to big sales later. I did craft shows with already-made home décor items such as signs, tiles, jars, etc. I gave them to my daughters who gave them to friends whose moms went crazy for them and placed orders for stuff as well. Word-of-mouth is the best advertisement when it comes to your business and always offer something free to your customers, even if they are horrible! Many people write their own blogs and word will spread, even if it is negative. I have customers who found me through blogs that were written about me. Then, I started attending an online college, which put my shop on hold for awhile.

You may want to register a trademark for your business name once you have your website in place.

If you don’t buy a commercial licence, but use these designs to sell your own products, you’re essentially stealing — and you can be sued for this.

So, you’re thinking about starting a vinyl cutting home business.

When I first started, it took me about six months to get my business going. I didn’t do many sales locally because instead of a storefront, I had a home office and wouldn’t feel comfortable with strangers coming and going in my home. I have an online store (at Etsy) where I used to make about $800 per month just selling on that site. I did minimal work, meaning I designed the work, then posted my item and waited for it to sell.

Etsy was founded 10 years ago as a site where small craft makers could go to list their creations and connect with a marketplace.

I am a work-at-home mom who makes vinyl decals for a living. I love being with my kids and still making money. I don’t make a lot, but I can make a significant amount of cash from home.

It’s worth asking yourself if you could deal with the following:

Fern Wall Decal, Large Leaf Decals, Vinyl Wall Decal Leaves, Botanical wall decor, Botanical Decor, Earthy Decor, Fern Sticker, Home office

Welcome Home Decal, Welcome Home Door Decor, Home Decor, Welcome Decal, Home Decal, Front Door Decal, Entry Decals, Housewarming Gifts New

Once you have your machine, your software, and a growing confidence in your ability to make awesome vinyl crafts… it’s time to get selling.

It’s a perfectly understandable concern that most of us would rather come up with new designs and work with our hands than study the logistics of turning our love in to money.

Next you need to decide if you want to sell via a platform like Etsy, or direct through your own website. Or both!

No matter what art you make (text, simple shapes, photographs, or more complicated designs), you will have to convert it to vector art so your vinyl cutter can print it properly.

Once you’ve found an audience for your products, you’ll be more likely to find success when you branch out on your own.

It had collected over 55 million registered users by late 2014, boasting an audience of 19.8 million active buyers, and served by 1.4 million sellers.

Have someone you know invite friends and family over and show them some items you made using vinyl. Make school logos for fundraisers. Sell your designs wholesale to small boutiques and other local businesses to use as give-aways.

Sell your original sticker designs at craft shows. Set up an online store (like etsy.com).

Every cutter works differently, so you should read the instructions for how to feed the vinyl into your cutter before you start.

But it’s something we must do if our small business is going to be successful.

While for many people, owning their own vinyl cutting business is a dream come true, not everyone is cut out for it.

Obviously Etsy isn’t a charity and won’t handle everything for free, but fees are generally low and, we think, very reasonable. It’s free to open your store, ¢20 to list an item and they take 3.5% off the selling price once its sold.

local businesses party-givers and event-throwers schools or school-related events political events or organizations anyone who needs labels on their product fundraisers

Here we bring you our latest tips, tricks and guides for getting the most out of your craft cutter.

Of course, you’re not guaranteed success when you open an Etsy store for your home vinyl decals business.

Plus, there are some issues that inevitably come with owning a vinyl decal business.

At some point you may want to invest in marketing material, like business cards — especially if you plan on visiting craft shows and the like.

Below, you’ll find step-by-step instructions for exactly how to make a vinyl decal.

On the flip side, if you’re creating your own designs, you may want to consider creating your own commercial licences.

4 Social Media and Your Vinyl Decal Business

These apps work with vectors, which is essentially line art.

The size of the decals you make depends on what kind of machine you buy, but you can put stickers anywhere. For example:

An online presence — like a store, or a blog — means that your work can do the selling as people naturally stumble across it. You don’t have to be present.

First things first, you need to come up with a name for your small craft business.

Computer Design Program Vinyl Decal Cutter Vector Art Program Rolls of Vinyl Transfer or Application (App) Tape Scissors, Tweezers, X-Acto knife Squeegee or Putty-knife tool

A commercial licence is usually more expensive than a personal one, although you can occasionally find them discounted or even free if you look hard enough.

Our view is that any startup business checklist which involves an investment in a squeegee… can’t be too bad!

One way you can use social media to drive buyers to your site or Etsy listing is to stage a giveaway, or offer discounts — while these may not make you as much money in the short term, they’ll drive big numbers and create a ready-made audience for you.

The bestselling Silhouette Cameo 3 and the Cricut Explore Air 2 both boast a low price tag, but their technology has launched many small businesses that are now worth considerably more.

Depending on how complex your design is, cutting may take seconds or hours, but most simple decals are done in a few minutes. When it’s done cutting, use scissors to remove the cut section from the roll.

But what’s perfect as a personal machine is not necessarily the best machine for running a commercial business.

Facebook and Instagram are also a good idea — just ensure that you take the time to capture excellent photos of your creations for the best results and user engagement.

While the evidence suggests that setting up a small craft business to sell vinyl decals is quite cheap, there are a few costs that you should be aware of.

Different vinyl cutters have different ways of connecting to your computer, but most will do it via your USB port. Once you’ve installed the drivers, established the connection, selected the correct port in the cutting software, and switched your cutter to the online mode, you should be good to go.

Once you have created your artwork, you’ll import it to your vinyl cutting program which will allow you to format, frame, size, scale, rotate, and manipulate the image many ways before you send it to the vinyl cutter. If your cutter didn’t come with a program, there are many on the market to choose from: Flexi Starter 10, SignCut, DragonCut, etc. Many vinyl cutters aren’t particularly Mac friendly, so if you’re a Mac user, you’ll probably want to go with DragonCut or SignCut.

Certain platforms are well designed for setting up a small craft business. Pinterest is particularly excellent for vinyl crafts and the main platform for many of us crafters.

Note: Photoshop uses raster graphics, which is essentially… dot art. Pixels instead of lines. Unfortunately your machine cannot read dots. It uses a blade that can only follow lines (vectors).

Do you want to become the next vinyl decals ‘work from home’ success story?

Note: We are big fans of Adobe Illustrator. It is available as part of a rolling cloud subscription fee of $19.99 per month. A good deal for some of the best software in the business.

Here’s a few tips and tricks we’ve learned over the years about how to run a successful Etsy store:

We Ship within the United States only. We support the United States Military and mail to APO/FPO Military addresses, too!We ship small decals First class mail and Larger decals Priority Mail. We ship out mail Monday through Friday, unless it is a Postal Holiday causing no delivery.

Thank You.

Here are the pros and cons of starting a decal business: Cons: Let me tell you, this is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It is not kick-back-and-relax type of job. There is real work involved. You will need to invest in some expensive supplies and equipment, set up your cutter, and use software to design the work. Don’t even think about trying to do this if you don’t already have a computer with design apps and know how to use them. You’ll also need to be an outgoing person in order to make connections with a steady supply of customers and continually expand your network. Pros: This is a fun way to earn a living and not much overhead is needed. Assuming you already have a computer with design and vector-art-making programs, after the initial purchase of your cutter, all you will need is vinyl, app tape, various blades, and motivation. Starting a small home business like this can cost as low at $700.00. I bought my vinyl cutter on Amazon and it came with a design program. Plus, you can work wherever and whenever you want, and how much money you make depends on how much time and energy you put in.

This is fine — especially when you’re just starting out — but you must ensure that you buy a commercial licence for the design if you intend to sell it online.

Be sure to visit the many small crafts forums around the web.

That was the extent of it, really. My advice to people who are considering this is that you really can’t expect that the cutter will arrive and then it will somehow magically make money for you. It all comes down to you and how you choose to get your product out there. But keep in mind, I did this with a very minimal advertising budget and I was making $800 a month on average.

Even so, we’re not talking more than a $50 investment to have enough vinyl to get started.

Unless you are truly a supremely talented designer, the best way of building a small business is to focus on the latter:

Classroom Teacher Wall Decal Work Hard Stay Focused Get Stuff Done Class room Rules High School Teacher Decor Office Wall Decal Decorations

So stick to the most common colors, or those that you will definitely use.

What are the advantages to running an offline vinyl decals business?

There is a steep learning curve for using the software for your cutter, but you’ll probably get the hang of things pretty quickly. After that, it all depends on how good you are at following through on projects, finding customers, and delivering good product quickly. Since you won’t make much selling one decal at a time, you should think big when promoting, marketing, and approaching potential customers.

If somebody has a need for your work, they won’t automatically find you.

Make sure that your business name is available on Etsy and open your store Add a cover photo and your business logo, as well as an ‘About’ section Create an item listing, which should include a good description, photograph, price and shipping costs.

Make sure that your listing is populated with keywords that a buyer might use to search for that item. Be descriptive! Decide what payment types you are willing to accept Add your billing information securely Publish your store policies and your shipping timeline Add your location so local buyers can find you

Two of the most popular blogging platforms where you can build your online presence:

Think big—sure, friends and family will buy a sticker or two, but to whom can you sell a bunch of stickers at once?

If you’re not designing your own cutting creations, chances are that you’ll be downloading other people’s designs to use.

Regardless of whether you choose to sell on a platform like Etsy or on your own website, one of the best ways to drive traffic to your listings is by creating a social media profile.

You can buy snazzy fonts or cool pre-made vector art that’s already cutter-ready. For really complicated designs, it might be worth it to save yourself some time by sending it out to have it vectorized or purchase software (like Vector Magic) to clean it up for you.

Now, you don’t have to invest in either CorelDraw or Adobe Illustrator, but if you plan to sell your crafts online — as opposed to serving local clients — then you will be competing with lots of other talented designers.

Just make sure that you’re starting a decal business with your eyes open and your expectations not too high — at least at first.

You can check domain name availability using a resource like this.

If you see anyone using your work without permission, you can request a lawyer send them a cease and desist letter. You may be able to pursue a legal case against them — remember to consult with a lawyer on whether this is worth your time and money.

Chances are that if you’re considering home business ideas like selling vinyl decals online, you already own a vinyl cutting machine.

To stand out, you must improve the quality of your designs. While you can design in programs like Silhouette Studio and Cricut Design Space, you don’t have as much creative freedom.

Of course, a vinyl cutting machine isn’t enough to get started. You need to actually cut material in order to sell it!

The answer is to become proficient at using the software and design tools on the market.

At the very minimum, we would recommend that you’re passionate about vinyl cutting and know your way around a craft cutting machine already.

Once you’ve found your footing with Etsy, you may want to take more control over your sales (and avoid those pesky Etsy selling fees!).

Because the cutter cuts but does not remove the negative parts of the image, you’ll have to “weed” (remove by hand) all the pieces of vinyl that are irrelevant to your design. If you did a good job setting up the cutter blade, your artwork should weed easily, but this part of the process usually takes some time. You may need to use tweezers, a weeding pick, and/or an X-Acto knife to remove the parts of vinyl that don’t belong in your decal.

Vector art is different from raster art. Raster art, including bitmap and .jpeg, is made of pixels, which are a bunch of different-colored dots without clear edges, while vector art has clearly defined edges and lines. Vinyl cutter-ready vector art (aka VCRVA or VCVA) can’t be saved as .jpeg, .gif, .png, .bmp, .psd, or .tif. With raster art, the edges will become fuzzy and distorted when the picture is enlarged, but with vector art, the image stays the same, no matter what size it is. In raster art, you’ll have thousands of different colors, but in vector art, the choices are limited. Thus, vector art is much clearer and easier to print. Your vinyl cutter can cut circles, lines, and arcs but it can’t cut a pixel so when you first bring an image into your cutting program and convert it to vector art, you’ll probably have a big mess to clean up. The cleaner the art you start with is, the less time you’ll spend cleaning it up.

VOC paints are a green friendly paint with low odor or no odor. These types of paints will repel removable vinyl decals and make them “fall off/roll off” your surface.

It’s possible to build a small crafts business on a shoestring budget. Passion trumps Capital.

The tools above will help you in the cutting process, but our view is this:

The last step is to put the stick on your sticker. You’ll want to choose a tape that stays flat or else the edges of the decal will begin to curl up and attract dirt. Remember that sometimes you’re planning on putting the sticker behind glass, and in those cases you’ll want the adhesive attached to the front, not the back, of your design. Transfer tape (or application, aka app tape) is like masking tape but has a different tack for adhering to your vinyl but releasing it on the target surface. You can buy this tape in different widths, but if you have an image that is bigger than the tape you have on hand, you can always lay two or more sections of tape down side-by-side, overlapping each section a quarter inch or so. Use a squeegee or a hard, flat tool to press the transfer tape onto the vinyl to ensure good adhesion.

Aside from your cutting materials, you’ll need a few more supplies to get your vinyl business off the ground:

You’ll select blade depth and pressure. Some machines require you to push the blade down manually while others have a button that does this for you. You’ll need to adjust the blade every time you change the type of vinyl you’re using—even if you think you’re using the same vinyl, its quality and thicknesses may change from roll to roll so you may need to readjust. Every cutter is different and you should follow the instructions. This step may take a little practice.

Many of those 1.4 million sellers are thriving small businesses; run by individuals with a passion for crafts and — thanks to the new Internet age — a huge global market accessible from their home computers.

These computerized craft cutters are more expensive than the Silhouette and Cricut ones, but are perfectly tuned to cut the most accurate vinyl decals in the fastest time — ideal for a successful home business.

A vinyl cutter is a computer-controlled machine that “reads” your design and translates it to an outline, then uses a sharp blade to cut that shape from a sheet of vinyl. After you’ve designed your art in an art program, you send it to the cutter which cuts the image. A small vinyl cutter might look like your computer printer and the big ones hold large rolls of vinyl.

Also, with graphics programs like Inkscape or Adobe Illustrator, you can create your own shapes and designs and prepare vector art specifically for cut vinyl.

It can be hard running a business: you want to be sure that you’re able to produce quality products that will satisfy your customers and make money without causing you too much difficulty.
