I know a lot of crafters dream of starting their own businesses, but they lack the funds to actually get started. But, did you know that some businesses are cheaper than others to start? Makes sense, no? Let’s take a look at some of the cheaper businesses you can start with your Silhouette Portrait or Cameo and Cricut Explore or Maker today.
Cheapest Silhouette and Cricut Businesses to Start
- 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.
- 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.
- Cut Files – Possibly the cheapest Silhouette Cameo or Cricut business to start is one selling cut files to other Silhouette Cameo and Cricut crafters. Since you’ll be selling digital goods, you won’t need any physical supplies! If you are interested in going this route, be sure to check out this post on the do’s and don’ts of selling cut files or get some inspiration from browsing Jeanna’s Etsy shop with 40K plus cut file sales.
