Get vinyl project ideas and other vinyl and HTV crafts you can sell for your Silhouette CAMEO, Cricut Maker, and Brother Scan N Cut on the So Fontsy Blog. Learn how to use So Fontsy’s SVG designs and commercial use fonts and then put them to good use in your small craft business.
I put together this easy tutorial, check it out below!
To start you want to find your sticker design. So Fontsy has a large collection of sticker designs and SVG design sets that can be used as stickers you can pick from. After downloading the sticker designs import them into your software program – such as Silhouette Studio.
Did you know you can add adhesive vinyl to paper cards and other paper projects?
For this framed paper sign, we created the design using a design in the Handwritten Wedding Mini SVG Bundle from the So Fontsy June 2019 Bundle.
Cut the vinyl design as you normally would and weed away the excess vinyl. You can use Oracal 651 or Oracal 631 vinyl for paper projects.
Use light tack transfer tape to pick up the vinyl design off the backing. Position it over the paper and apply. Burnish the vinyl decal through the transfer tape to get the vinyl to stick to the paper.
Remove the transfer tape at an angle.
Place the paper into a frame and you’ve created yourself a beautiful custom sign. This technique can also be used for card, scrapbook pages, or other paper projects!
Mock Up photos help sell physical goods and digital designs by letting potential customers ‘see’ the finished product without you actually creating it first. Put it to you this way…which of the above sets do you think sells more?
Craft mock ups are a huge help in selling digital products as well allowing designers to show examples of how their cut files can be used. These five tips will help you take your mock up game to the next level so you can sell more – and at a higher price!
Before we even into how to create mock ups in Silhouette Studio – a warning. Always make sure you have mastered how to make the actual product you’re selling. It’s great if you can make that custom shirt made with HTV look good on a mock up, but if the HTV is peeling off the finished product because you haven’t yet mastered heat transfer vinyl…that’s false advertising and the quickest way to kill your Silhouette business.

Silhouette School and Swing Design – who will begin pre-orders of the Silhouette CAMEO 4 in late summer – were both at Silhouette America’s 2019 Summit meeting in Hawaii earlier this month. The Silhouette CAMEO 4 was just one of several new Silhouette machines in 2019. Silhouette America also announced it will release a 15″ Silhouette CAMEO Plus and 20″ Silhouette CAMEO Pro. Both of the wider Silhouette machines are expected to be released in early 2020.
You can use So Fontsy SVG designs with Cricut or Silhouette as a single color vinyl decal or as a multi color decal! designs … it all depends on how you cut your design. If you need to cut it on multiple colors of vinyl, ungroup the design after its in your software program and cut each piece on a different color vinyl.
