  1. Being totally new to this stuff I kinda guessed at what to make my prices at. I came up with a number for doing basic easy smaller stuff but lately trying to help a buddy do bigger stuff for his truck im really not sure what i should be charging. I had a whole page wrote then deiced not to post numbers. So will ask this, how do you figure out prices for cutting stuff when the Customer supplied the vinyl?
  2. So A club I deal with wants a new outdoor sign, the one they have now is maybe 4 foot by 6 foot maybe its a banner. they want something that will hold up in the weather (wind,rain,snow (maybe) this is GA we don't get much snow. But anyways they know i do vinyl stuff and asked what would be the best material for such a thing. I have only used Corrugated blanks, I have used smaller ones, 2x3 ft maybe, And the wind seems to really bend them if not supported well. 4x8foot I thought about maybe just putting vinyl on Plexiglass but unless it was pretty thick there is chance of it cracking . needs to be kinda strong so the grass cutter cant crack it with a rock or something. any suggestions? they like to keep it cheap as possible. Thanks

    Best material to use for large (4x8ft) outdoor sign?

    Thanks everyone.
  4. Ok so most of my shirts seem to do fine but a few of my shirts days after I pressed them.a couple of letters want to peel back but not the same letter and not in the same spot. Almost doesn't make sense to me. What are the reasons would cause this the htv is all the same htv. Sisser easyweed. Temp 310 15 secs pressed what I think is good pressure but I might need more pressure then I'm using... Now that I think about it I don't think it's easy weed it's got a white backing on it got it from the local vinyl shop only this color is doing it it's foresent green do the foresent act driffrent? Thanks for thoughts

    1st welcome to the site, lot of helpful folks here.. It can do it, getting it lined up so that the vinyl will track straight it the hardest part. A truck bed is the biggest ive cut it was 6 foot long.

    Best vinyl for outdoor vinyl banner?

    Thanks for asking that i was wondering if the 651 would be okay or not on a banner.. i probably will be getting some for Christmas signs for the yard this year. so mine just need to last hopefully a few years for what 5 weeks out in the weather. i normally start decorating to turn on on Thanksgiving and take down on New years day. I have one sign with 651 on it out in the weather now its been there 2 months in the wide open sun,rain. whatever and still looks as good as the day i made it. its on coraplat sign. wasn't sure about banners

    Printable vinyl

    A local Vinyl shop just posted today that they now have in stock Inkjet printable HTV selling it in sheets of 8 1/4 x 11 $2.25-2.99 depending if you want light or dark.. I never heard of this before I thought to be able to print your own you needed a 8K printer

    Who's selling on Etsy

    Just got a email that prices are going up on fees I set up a shop about a month ago but i didn't realize how cheap others were selling decals and shirts hard to compete with the others but what your selling custom signs look nice.
  13. Talking about Football teams like GA bulldogs and Alabama and Atlanta braves Big known teams and companys like Monster energy drinks and things along those lines. There is a guy driving around in a Dale Earnhardt NASCAR theme truck. i know cause he wanted me to add more to his truck and i told him i couldn't cause be copyright now sure how the last guy that did it for him got by with it.
  14. it seems many just do it and get away with it.. People on this site warn not to do so. But i see people selling stuff daily that is copys of others. I try to make everything i put online be my own

    Hi all!

    Welcome, I myself also have a SC2 i have been enjoying it.
  16. Since its part time for you and you enjoy doing online, how do people local to you find out about you to want stuff done? That seems to be my issue is no one knows I do it here in my town. And i have seems like 20+ others around the outside of my town doing it too.. but they mostly do small stuff if i could get bigger jobs I would do them. Thanks
  17. WOW 1500 ads... man..
  18. Thanks for the info, I will check that site out, never knew anything like that was available, Ive been trying to come up with my own stuff so not to get in trouble with copyright or trademarks. No clue you could find files and or buy files that you could sell.. I guess Ive just not found the right part of this hobby yet. as someone who's been out of work for a yr i would love to make even $25 a hour if i could make it for at least a few hours a day right now i would love to make $100 a week that would be a HUGE help but so far only money i've made was from a family reunion t shirts bunch i did for my wifes dad side of the family.
  19. I do have a 24 inch cutter but trying to cut anything over 3 foot with it is a pain but honestly i don't have a clue what kinda design to try to sell that could make $25 each on. or a set or whatever. Guess im just not that good at coming up wish designs that isn't a copy of someones out there already. how do you ship bigger decals? small ones mine are 6x6 up to 10x10 inch now. those would fit in a padded envelope with some cardboard around them thats how i have shipped so far. bigger then that would need be i guess rolled up and put in a box.?
  20. your the 2nd to say that but i just don't know what to try to sell I really don't want to sell Decals at all would rather sell just t shirts but no luck at those either.
  21. WOW, guess im glad id iddnt try amazon, I just started trying on Ebay and no luck yet, I guess its all these people who are selling decals for $1-$3 i don't understand how there making anything off them. I already know min charge for me to ship is $3.50 just dont get how people can sell and ship free shipping.
  22. Okay so over the past few weeks i keep seeing people posting custom shirts on facebook local groups for like $10 a shirt. or $12 a shirt how are they selling so cheap? are they looking at it as well if i sell 100 shirts at $10 i will make $1000 but if i only sell 20 shirt cause there $20 im only making $400. cause i know when i first got into doing this i looked around and seen some peoples prices and i just manly came up with shirt price, HTV price added those together and put in $5-8 for myself to make.. We all have to buy the shirts and HTV at some point but do some people just sell cheaper to make sure there able to sell a lot of shirts? I mean i can make a shirt in about a hour if its a new design and the customer replies right back to me on saying they like the design or not. even tho this hasn't happened it so far its been friends and they tell me what they want and we talk back and forth over a few days i get the shirt i get the colors of HTV then we agree on the design then i make it. just looking for input i guess. Ive got a web store and got it linked on my facebooks and its on the front of my truck ive had Zero sales from it. Im just thinking of lowering my prices or just put free shipping one or the other. right not there like $18 shipped. maybe $12 would sell or maybe just no ones been to my site. not sure... I feel my name is still isnt out there good enough yet.

    how are they selling so cheap?

    My EIN number is right here in my business Folder. with all my other paper work, As i could find online it seemed that was pretty much the only legal thing you needed to do to operate as a Sole proprietor business. so i was trying to be legal about it and signed up for one with the IRS website. I also decided to get one in case i wanted to open a separate bank account it said it would help with that. So your saying anyone can sell anything they wish in the Vinyl world w/o any type of IRS number just by using there SS number?
