Decals are a great way to make money from your Silhouette or another vinyl cutter you may have. Over and over, decals have proven to have a low cost with a high profit. A quick search on Pinterest can also show you that weddings are popular events to make custom items for with your vinyl cutter.
A huge trend for weddings are custom signs for things like the entryway, favor tables, guest books, and more. While some of these signs can be custom made and hand-lettered, sign decals are a great way for customers to gain a custom sign at a lower cost while still making you a profit selling it.
Wedding Welcome Sign
This sign was made with just over two feet of FDC Decal Vinyl in Crystal White. This vinyl is sold for .95 a foot, meaning this sign was less than $2 to make! Welcome signs can be easily customized for the couple at the event, using very little time to set up. Decals for signs like this can sell for $40, making you $38 in profit.
Small Guest Book and Favor Signs
These two signs can have stock designs that can be easily customized with a date or the names of the couple. Depending on the size of the signs, the decal can also be made using scrap vinyl that may be left over from other signs made. Both of these signs may cost around $1.50 in materials, but can be sold for $15 and $20, making you a profit of over $30!
Custom, hand-lettered signs and mirrors for weddings can normally run anywhere between $50-$100 a piece, so more and more brides are turning to custom decals that can be applied to any sign for their custom wedding needs. With these three projects, the decals can be sold collectively for around $80, making you a profit of $76.

Mini Marketing Tip
Research your the niche. Weddings are considered a niche market. Look at what is trending, how they’re making it, and what they charge. Then, look for similar wholesale items buy and pair that with popular wedding themes that tend to last, and then price competitively. Also, don’t be shy to partner with other wedding businesses in your area, leaving brochures or business cards with coupons so customers can find you, or even displaying your pieces in their business.
