Craftey Tells All: What Are the Different Types of Vinyl and How Do I Use Them?

This week we're excited to bring you a brand new series to the Craftey Blog: Craftey Tells All! 

Craftey Tells All is dedicated to answering your most asked questions about crafting, vinyl, tips & tricks, and pretty much anything else you'd like to know. We're an open book! 

We're kicking things off with one of our most asked questions from newbie crafters: "What are the different types of vinyl and how are they used?"

To sum it up, there are two main types of craft vinyl: Adhesive Vinyl and Heat Transfer Vinyl. You can create some truly AMAZING things with both types of vinyl but the kind you choose comes down to the type of project you're creating and the final product you want.

Have a question you'd like us to answer in our Craftey Tells All series? Send an email to, DM us on Instagram, or leave your question in the comments below. We can't wait to hear from you!

Be sure to head over to the Craftey shop to find all of the materials used in this project, including our full line up of heat transfer vinyl and adhesive vinyls. If you're looking for more fun project ideas, tips, or free cut files, head over to our Community site and join in on the fun!

And don't forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more videos like this one!
