Cheapest Silhouette and Cricut Businesses to Start

  1. Decals – Decals appeal to a wide variety of buyers because they can be applied to cars, computers, walls, windows, cups, and more. To start a decal business, you’ll need adhesive vinyl and transfer tape. Start out small offering limited decal colors and ship orders in photo mailers.
  2. Stickers – Custom made stickers are hot! (Read Amy’s experience with stickers here.) Whether you choose to market to the planner fanatics, teachers, or other small businesses you’ll need a good understanding of print and cut/print then cut, sticker paper, and sturdy envelopes to ship your stickers in.

  1. I have a question on the stickers. Any recommendation on waterproof paper/vinyl and where to purchase it? I make regular vinyl to crate decals but my husband would like to up his companies logo on his hard hat and I would rather print it instead of layer the vinyl. Any advice would be appreciated!

  2. Hi ! I want to start doing some crafting like invites and banners and things like that … do you recommend the cricut or the cameo ? Thank you

  3. Hi! I love your site and really enjoy and appreciate all the info you share. It is ALL fantastic!
    I wonder if you could check the link above as when I click on it, it says ‘Page Not Found.” It is the link in this part of the post: “… check out this post on the do’s and don’ts of selling cut files …” I am truly interested in this type of business, so am looking for all the info I can get so I start out on the right foot. Thanks for looing into this – and for all you do!

  4. I had a Shiloute Cameo for about a year and could never figure out how to use it. Everything I saw was for people that should already know how to run the computer program. Nothing like out of the box for dummies, so I sold it a year ago. Well I really want one and want to run a small business with it, so I just bought another one. Long question short (LOL) Is there anywhere to learn how to use it starting from taking it out of the box?
