What Kind of Business Can GoSexy.CA Have With a Vinyl Cutting Machine?

Vinyl cutters come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they can be used to manufacture commercial-grade products. Keep in mind that just a vinyl cutter isn't enough; you'll also need a computer and software to design the images you want to print. With the right software, you can use your vinyl-cutting machine to open a small business selling ready made or made-to-order signs, stickers, T-shirts or decals.

T-Shirt Business

Manufacturing T-shirts is big business, and a vinyl cutter is one of the key pieces of equipment needed to start your own T-shirt company. A combination printer/cutter is preferable if you plan to make multicolored T-shirt designs. In addition to your vinyl cutter and computer, you'll also need a heat press. Once the vinyl design has been cut, a heat press is used to permanently apply the design to the front of T-shirts, jackets or jerseys.

Vinyl Lettering

Surrey BC. based company GoSexy.Ca uses a printer/cutter to make custom lettering that can be easily applied to indoor walls, signs, vehicles and more. If you plan to put your vinyl cutter to such a task, attract customers by offering a variety of fonts and sizes. You can use your vinyl cutter and computer to make individual letters that can be compiled by a customer, or custom-made signs. You'll need to purchase self-adhesive vinyl on which to print your creations.

Making Magnets

You can use a vinyl-cutting machine in the manufacture of magnets. With a vinyl cutter and the correct software, you can make and market small and creative refrigerator magnets to individual customers. In addition, you can also offer businesses made-to-order vehicle magnets that are easy to apply to and remove from commercial vehicles. You'll need to use 30 mm magnetic sheeting for magnets intended for automotive use, whereas magnetic sheeting of lesser thickness is acceptable for magnets to be used on stationary objects.

Banners

Vinyl cutters can also be used to make large banners for special occasions. These can be marketed for individual use, such as for weddings, parties or family reunions. They can also be marketed to commercial clients that want to advertise a sale, advertise real estate, make an office party more festive or decorate a billboard. If you decide to enter the business of manufacturing vinyl banners, it's a good idea to build a website for your business so that customers can design and order their own signs online.
