Vinyl Buying Guide

Our vinyl sheets are compatible with all vinyl cutters including Cricut, Xyron, Silhouette, Craft ROBO, Graphtec, Quickutz, Inspiration, Pazzles, Wishblade.

MATTE & GLOSS:
Oracal 631 Matte & Oracal 651 Gloss Adhesive backed vinyls come in the sizes shown below in our size chart. These vinyls feature an adhesive back already on them. You simply cut with your cutter and weed. Then using our transfer tape you move your vinyl to your finished project surface.

USES:

Matte is perfect for indoor use on walls, glass, plates, and any application that will be used indoors. It comes with a matte finish, which keeps glare away. It's rated for 3 years, but from our experience it will last forever (or until your tastes change).

Gloss is perfect for outdoor mailboxes, boats, front doors, and any application that needs to withstand the weather. It's rated for 6 years outdoor and features a gloss finish. Also perfect for plates, tumblers, & key chains.

Our matte and gloss vinyl come in the sizes shown in the image below and also by the yard/rolls.

Matte provides a natural hand painted finish without reflection.

Oracal 651 Gloss is perfect for outdoor mailboxes, boats, front doors, and any application that needs to withstand the weather. It's rated for 6 years outdoor and features a gloss finish. Also perfect for plates, tumblers, & key chains.
Gloss provides more of a shiny finish (we think of it as a shiny new car) and reflects light.

HEAT TRANSFER VINYL:
Commonly known as HTV vinyl. Our heat transfer vinyl is perfect for fabric applications such as pillowcases, t-shirts, & bags. We have it in fun fluorscent colors, everyday colors, and even glitter.
It comes ready to use (no transfer tape needed). Simply place it clear side down in your machine, mirror(reverse) your image, weed, then flip over so the clear side is up. Now you can place on your garment. Apply with your home iron or heat press.
Our HTV sheets come in sizes 12" x 15", 15" x 24", and 15" by yardage.
