Since launching this blog, I’ve received hundreds of emails about setting up vinyl cutting businesses.

Ten years ago the idea was unthinkable for most of us.

  • “I’m not creative enough.”
  • “I won’t be able to find customers.”
  • “I don’t have the technology to make crafts that would actually sell.”

Well, if you’ve found this page, you probably already know that ALL of this has changed.

The handmade crafts and decals industry has exploded in to a runaway success, and thousands of amateur cutting machine enthusiasts like you and I – armed with no more than a Cricut, Sizzix or Silhouette machine! – are able to make money selling simple designs online.

Thanks to platforms like Etsy, Instagram and Shopify, it’s never been easier to sell our work and build a brand using the winning combination of a cutting machine + our imagination + a little hard work!

Whether you are looking for a side income, a lifestyle business or simply a financial reward for your creative designs, there is a HUGE market of willing customers… if you know where – and how – to reach them.

And that information is what we’re offering today.

How to Launch a Successful Vinyl Cutting Business is a comprehensive and detailed step-by-step look at what it takes to build a vinyl or paper cutting business – from conception to launch. You can use this information to turn your passion in to something that makes money, regardless of whether you have any experience selling crafts in the past.
