Are you looking for a change of business or just something to ignite that passion for designing and creating new things?
Have you ever heard of the wondrous thing known as a vinyl cutting machine? Perhaps you have recently purchased one and are curious as to what you could do with it or maybe you are simply looking for a great business idea.
First things first, what exactly is a vinyl cutting machine? It’s a small machine that can transform regular items around you into artistic products and items of value. As the rather self-explanatory name suggests, it can be used to cut flexible and practical sheets of vinyl into whatever shapes you like. As well as vinyl though, it can also be used to cut a number of other fabrics and materials too.
There is real potential to make a profit if you start a vinyl cutting business. In the following post we will look at some of the extremely cool things you can do with one of these great machines.
Design Clothing and Apparel
All you need is a plain jersey, t-shirt or some other type of apparel. Along with a heat press to set whatever graphics and designs you make using your vinyl cutter onto the t-shirt you can create bespoke and unique products to sell.
Stickers and Signage
You can also use a vinyl cutter to make a wide array of different stickers and signage. You could either make a batch of pre-determined stickers and signs or offer the service of making signs and stickers to fulfil customer orders.
Painting and Woodworking
If you are a dab hand with carpentry and are looking for interesting ways to add a touch of flair and commercial appeal to your creations, you could use a vinyl cutter to cut some fabric to cover that pencil box or trinket box you have made.
Make Wall and Ceiling Decals
another great use of a vinyl cutting machine is designing and making decals that can be sold to stick to your customer’s walls or ceilings or even bathroom tiles. You could figure out who your target audience is and identify the shapes and styles to create decals in.
Calendars are highly profitable products and can be easily created to target a specific group of your target audience. Everyone likes to stay on top of their day to day life and keep everything they do and with who, organised. You could create a whole selection of different calendars designed to target different people.
Greeting Card Designing and Making
Greeting cards are always needed and if you have a quirky concept or are just really good at vinyl cutting, you could use the vinyl cutter to design and make greetings cards. If you can hit upon styles and themes your audience love; you will be more likely to see a return on your investment quickly.
Protect Your Electronics and Gadgets
You know when you bought your current smartphone, tablet or even widescreen television or laptop and it had that protecting covering that kept it safe from dirt, acids and other dirt and grime? With a vinyl cutting machine and a supply of silkscreen labelling you can create these handy and protective coverings. These are always useful for people looking to reapply protection to their devices or even if they are looking to sell them and want to give them more of a professional layer of protective coating.
As you can undoubtedly see from the above, there are many cool and interesting things you can do with a vinyl cutting machine. This opens up a world of opportunities to either expand an already existing business you may have currently, or to start a completely new venture – especially if you are looking to break out from the rat race and start working for yourself.
