Where to Buy Vinyl, (Silhouette) Crafting Supplies, and Equipment for a Good Price

It’s great that these days we have options when it comes to buying vinyl and crafting supplies. Plus, there are so many different types of vinyl available in lots of colors, patterns, and textures. While it’s all very exciting, I think we all can agree that it can be overwhelming to shop around and compare. Who is reliable? Who has good prices? Who doesn’t overcharge me in shipping? All of these questions we have thought about.

Here’s a list of some of my favorite vinyl vendors I highly recommend for product quality, service, shipping, and reliability.

Heat Presses

Pro World

15″ x 15″ clamshell heat press

The 15″ x 15″ clamshell heat press with pullout drawer is a personal favorite for price point, size, ease of use, and it’s much easier to see your work and arrange it without bumping the heat platen.

The hat press is very handy for curved surfaces and it’s a great price.

Amazon

Amazon really is one of the most affordable places to purchase a heat press, but you have ot be careful which ones you buy, because some companies do not have good support or quality products, so here are a couple of my top picks in both clam shell and swing away styles.

The PowerPress is a best seller for a reason. It’s reliable, easy to use, and affordable. There’s no good reason not to buy it with over 1,000 reviews and 4.5 stars. You won’t be sorry.

The FancierStudio swing away heat press has great reviews. I have a swing away because I was looking for very even pressure upon closure for surfaces like glass as well as canvas, shirts, bags, etc. It’s a lot of effort to close mine, but not all are like that. I do believe a clam shell design is easier to close overall though. This heat press is about the best price you’ll find. It’s a work horse.

Shipping Supplies

Packaging Material Direct

They have a Black Friday Sale happening, so don’t miss out!

If you ship shirts, bags, hats, and other soft items to your customers, then you know all about poly mailers. They even have free shipping on them, so stock up while you can.

Be sure to check out their Specials section, as well, for tape and other supplies.
