I know a lot of crafters dream of starting their own businesses, but they lack the funds to actually get started. Is this you? If so, don’t worry – I’ve got some ideas for you.
Just like a car dealership is more expensive to start than a take out restaurant, some craft businesses are cheaper to start than others.
Let’s take a look at some of the cheaper businesses you can start with your Silhouette or Cricut.
Top 3 Cheapest Silhouette and Cricut Businesses to Start
Decals appeal to a wide variety of buyers because they can be applied to cars, computers, walls, windows, cups, and more. You can start out by offering a limited number of decal colors. As your business grows, you can expand to other colors and even patterns.
Custom made stickers are hot! 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. Start with basic sticker paper and add additional options like holographic or foil after your business is established.
The cheapest Silhouette or Cricut business to start is selling digital products. You could specialize in SVG cut files, fonts, seamless patterns, or printables. Since you’ll be selling digital goods, you won’t need any physical supplies!
Supplies: Design program like Silhouette Studio or Adobe
