Wondering which vinyl transfer tape is best?

If you want to perform a flawless transfer from craft vinyl to a substrate, you should use adhesive transfer tape. With this tape, you can pick up even the tiniest details of your design and place them exactly where they need to be.

The key to good transfer tape is not just in the adhesiveness. It’s also important to know how good the tape is for certain vinyl types, how static it is, whether it comes with a grid, the price, size, and many other parameters.

This article will guide you through some of the best transfer tapes of 2020, taking a closer look at their unique characteristics.




What is Transfer Tape & What is it Used For?

Transfer tape has an extremely important place in the crafting world. It does exactly what its name says – transfers your vinyl design from the backing paper onto a new surface.

DIY Easter Egg Decor

Adhesive vinyl might seem like a regular sticker that you can just simply stick to a substrate. But, vinyl is really thin and it can be challenging to move it by a hand. It can lose its shape, the edges can stick to each other, and you won’t be able to place it in a perfect position to your surface.

Also, many projects that use adhesive vinyl are delicate designs with a lot of tiny details. These thin layers are impossible to transfer without good transfer tape.

So, if you are serious about your work, you should get transfer tape, together with some adhesive vinyl tools which will help you to apply the tape smoothly.


When to Use Adhesive Transfer Tape?

If you’re crafting a project with adhesive vinyl, you should always use a transfer tape.

First, you should prepare your vinyl design. Most crafters use a vinyl cutting machine to cut out the letters or shapes that they want, but you can use other accessories, or cut out shapes by yourself.

Once you remove unnecessary parts around your design by weeding your transfer, you can rub your vinyl transfer tape over the left-over design.

how to use transfer tape

Set the tape over the vinyl and flatten it out. The design will fix to the transfer tape and you can easily transfer it to another substrate.

what is vinyl transfer tape

This way, your design will stay solid and you will be able to transfer it in the same shape and form.


Can I Use Transfer Tape for Heat Transfer Vinyl?

Using transfer tape for vinyl is usually not necessary for heat transfer. You generally only use it with adhesive vinyl.

Most heat transfer vinyl (HTV) doesn’t require a carrying accessory since it won’t stick. You can place it on any substrate freely before you apply the heat to melt the adhesive into the fibers of the fabric. In order to do this, you need an iron or a heat press machine.

Heat Press Machines vs. Cricut Easy Press 2

You do however need to use heat transfer tape when you are working with printer heat transfer vinyl. However this type of vinyl differs from the type we are discussing in this article today.


When Should You Use Adhesive Vinyl?

Whenever you want to decorate a solid substrate, you can use adhesive vinyl. You can use it to place a logo on the door to your business, decorate the walls in your room, bring life to your windows, and so on.

You can learn more about the types of vinyl, as well as which the best adhesive vinyl is in our guide.
Removable Adhesive Vinyl as Wall Decal

There are different types of adhesive vinyl.

Permanent vinyl is a strong, durable material that can last many seasons. Rain, snow, heat, and other unfavorable weather conditions shouldn’t affect it. This type of vinyl has a super strong adhesive for obvious reasons and therefore you need to use a super tacky transfer tape in order to release the vinyl from the carrier.

Permanent Adhesive Vinyl on Car

Temporary adhesive vinyl on the other hand has been designed to only last for a short-term period, usually under a year. Therefore this type of vinyl has a light adhesive. 

Here is our guide that fully explains the difference between Removable vs. Permanent Vinyl.


Can I Use Adhesive Vinyl on T-Shirts?

No, you should only use heat transfer vinyl to decorate clothes. Adhesive vinyl will not stick as well to cloth and it will fall off after a couple of times in the wash. If you want to transfer vinyl to your clothes, you should get a t shirt heat press.


Where to Buy Transfer Tape for Vinyl?

You can typically find transfer tape anywhere that you can find vinyl, some of my favorite places to source vinyl is:

  • Amazon - They have some cheap but great transfer tape for normal adhesive vinyl. Some of the favorites from here include Craftopia Angel Crafts.
  • Swing Designs - They sell the good stuff! The brand-quality transfer tape that can be hard to find elsewhere, great for Oracal type vinyl and speciality vinyl such as glitter vinyl. Click here to shop.
  • Cricut.com - The best and cheapest place to get Cricut transfer tape. They offer normal transfer tape rolls, bulk transfer tape and StrongGrip transfer tape. Click here to shop


Which Type is Best for Which Material?

As mentioned, it is important to match your material to the right transfer tape. Different brands have different strength to their stickiness.

If you get a tape that has a stronggrip, it might destroy lightweight material. Get a tape with a light grip and you will be frustrated that it isn't picking up more textured material.

Here is a great guide to mix and match your tape with your type of material.

  • Best overall transfer tape for a variety of crafts: If you aren't sure exactly what you will be working with, we recommend Craftopia - it is cheap and works with most materials.
  • Best transfer tape for car decals: It depends whether you are using a permanent or removable vinyl. We prefer using Oracal 651 permanent vinyl for our car decals which works fabulously with R-TAPE
  • Best transfer tape for glitter vinyl: We love using Siser Easy PSV transfer tape for textured vinyl such as glitter or 
  • Best transfer tape for Oracal 651: We love transferring our Oracal 651 decal designs with R-TAPE. R-Tape is a high tack rubber adhesive transfer tape.
  • Best transfer tape for Cricut vinyl: We recommend Craftopia for your Cricut vinyl, it is cheaper than the Cricut transfer tape and works beautifully. 


Transfer Tape Buyers Guide

There are different types of transfer tapes that work well with different types of adhesive vinyl. Here are some parameters that you should always look for in a transfer tape.

Size

If you are going to transfer just a few decals, you might as well get a 12” x 12” piece of tape. However, most of the tapes come in big rolls of over 10 feet.

You will be suprised how quickly you can use up a big roll of transfer tape!

Type of Vinyl

Siser EasyWeed Glitter Vinyl

Not all tapes work with all vinyl. Most of the versatile tapes (from Amazon) are good for vinyl of normal thickness. But you need to match your strength of adhesive on the transfer tape to the type of vinyl you using.

For example, you should use StrongGrip transfer tape if you’re looking to transfer Glitter Vinyl, whilst normal paper transfer tape will work well with your thinner vinyl. We will outline what each brand of transfer tape listed below could be used for.

Also, consider using branded tapes for different vinyl brands. For example, it’s best to use Oracal tape for Oracal vinyl, or Silhouette tape for Silhouette vinyl, etc. as the brands typically do plenty of test-runs to ensure that their tape work brilliantly with their own products.

Grid or No Grid?

Many transfer tapes come with a 1” x 1” grid that helps you position your design perfectly to the surface. However, some prefer gridless tapes, since grids can distract you and cover some important details on the decal.

Paper or Clear Transfer Tape?

In this article, you will see both paper and clear transfer tapes. The differences between them are minor. With clear transfer tape for vinyl, there’s a possibility of air and wet bubbles to appear since it isn’t breathable. So, if you’re transferring a wet vinyl, it’s better to use paper.

On the other hand, paper tape is opaque, so you can’t see your design perfectly while you’re applying it. We much prefer clear transfer tape.

Price

The price of transfer tapes can vary depending on the brand and type, but the average price is around $1.5 for one foot of length.

Still feeling stuck on how to use transfer tape? Here is a great guide for you.

Best Transfer Tape for Vinyl Decals

So what is the best vinyl transfer tape? Here are some adhesive transfer tape reviews to help you decide. 

I will outline the top features, the pros and cons of each in detailed reviews, which should help you choose the best tape for your type of vinyl.

1. JH Best Crafts Vinyl Transfer Paper Review

This JH Best Crafts vinyl transfer paper comes at a reasonable price and is 10 feet long. Once you buy this tape, you will have enough transfer paper for multiple crafting projects.

If you want to do multiple transfers at the same time, you can use the same piece of transfer tape four times before the stickiness wears out. Re-using tape is a good way to save time and money.

The tape works with a wide range of vinyl types. It is an appropriate transfer paper for Silhouette vinyl, but it also works with Cricut vinyl, Oracal vinyl, and many others. You can transfer it to various solid substrates both indoors and outdoors.

This transfer paper is transparent and it has a red grid which will help you center and fix your design. This is particularly important when you’re transferring a small design, where you can’t get the full picture until you move away from the substrate.

Since it comes at a reasonable price for a high-quality paper, any crafter can appreciate this product.

However, it has a small downside. It is not completely transparent and you may not be able to see some smaller details.

So, if you tend to transfer simpler shapes or letters, you won’t encounter any problems. In other cases, the inability to see smaller details while transferring might frustrate you.

Pros

  • Reasonable price for the quantity
  • The tape can be reused
  • A grid for precision
  • Versatile tape

Cons

  • Not completely transparent

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​2. Angel Crafts Vinyl Transfer Paper Tape Review

This transfer paper tape comes in a standard 12” width and 8 ft. length. The thin paper releases the vinyl easily, so you can avoid any rips and other kinds of damage.

It’s a versatile transfer paper that works well with different types of vinyl and cutters. When you purchase this tape, you’ll also receive a guide on the best way to use it depending on the type of vinyl. You can easily use it with Silhouette, Cricut, or any other vinyl cutter.

The paper is transparent enough and comes with a red grid that will help your perspective, so you don’t accidentally transfer anything out of place or askew.

With the help of this 1”x1” tape, you can easily place even the smallest details with geometric precision. Also, because of the low opacity, you won’t miss out on any detail.

Considering the medium-to-high tackiness, you can reuse the tape many times during the same project. However, the stickiness will start to wear out after a few transfers due to air exposure. Make sure that you do all the transfers as quickly as possible if you want maximum efficiency.

On the downside, this transfer paper doesn’t work too well with Oracle 651, and you might have to look for another transfer paper if you work with this vinyl type often. The stickiness of the paper will require you to rub it many times before it eventually releases the vinyl.

Pros

  • Low opacity, transparent
  • Reusable
  • Works well with Silhouette and Cricut vinyl
  • 1” x 1” red grid for precision

Cons

  • Too sticky for some vinyl types, doesn’t work well with Oracle

3. Craftopia Vinyl Transfer Paper Review

What separates Craftopia transfer tape for vinyl from others on the list is its complete transparency. With this design, you’ll have full awareness of how your decal fits the surface. This means you won’t have to worry about whether you missed any little details.

There is also a 1” x 1” blue square grid which further helps you to place your design. This grid combines with low opacity well, helping crafters focus on the position of their decal.

Looking for the best transfer tape for glitter vinyl? The Craftopia transfer paper works well with glitter vinyl, Cricut, Oracle, Silhouette, and various other types.

With the Craftopia transfer paper, you will also get a cyan or pink felt tip squeegee. This accessory is important to polish the tape with the vinyl beneath. This can get rid of any bumps or bubbles, making your vinyl flat.

The roll is 12 ft. long, which is more than most other rolls in the same price range.

Unfortunately, this transfer paper may take a little more effort to pick up certain vinyl types. Make sure to rub it well and use a good amount of pressure when you stick the decal on the surface. If it doesn’t apply well, the paper will pick up the vinyl too once you try to remove it.

Craftopia is one of the top sellers of crafting gear and accessories, and they have an impressive money-back guarantee. So despite some downsides, it’s still one of the best transfer paper options on the market.

Pro

  • Completely transparent
  • Blue, precision grid
  • Works well with Cricut, Oracle, Silhouette
  • Affordable product from a well-respected manufacturer

Cons

  • Takes some effort to release certain types of vinyl

4. Cricut Transfer Tape Review

The Cricut Vinyl transfer tape comes in a size of 12” x 48”, making it smaller than other tapes on the list. When you compare the prices, you’ll see that the Cricut vinyl is also more expensive.

However, if you’re mostly working with Cricut vinyl, you should consider getting this transfer paper from the same manufacturer.

If you’re looking to work on some bigger projects or want a larger roll of this tape, it comes in four different sizes. The largest one is around 30 ft., which is more than enough for any long-term crafting project.

Once you cut your vinyl, apply it to any solid surface and make sure to apply enough pressure with a scraper or a squeegee. If you don’t, not even Cricut vinyl will stick to the substrate well enough.

Because of the stickiness, this is also a great transfer tape for glitter vinyl, as long as you use it correctly.

Since the paper is completely transparent with a discrete, black grid, you’ll be fully aware of the decal’s position. Overall, it is a very effective transfer tape that works well with Cricut products.

Pros

  • Great for Cricut vinyl
  • Works well with glitter vinyl
  • Transparent with a black grid

Cons

  • May be too expensive

5. Oracal Transfer Tape MT80P Review

This tape works best with Oracal vinyl. It is the best transfer tape for Oracal 651 and Oracal 751, as well as with Oramask.

If you don’t use Oracal vinyl at all, you can use this product, as long as you have a good scraper. You will need to burnish the vinyl well once you apply it to the substrate if you don’t want the paper to pull it back up.

The great thing about Swing Design is that you can order the exact amount of transfer paper that you need. So, if you’re working with a smaller design, you don’t have to order a 10-foot roll. Instead, you can save up money and order a few 12” x 12” sheets.

On the other hand, the 10-ft. roll is extremely affordable too, compared to some other offers. So even if you’re unsure how much tape do you need, you won’t regret buying it.

Overall, this Oracal transfer paper is a great choice for the price. The fact that you can order a 300-ft. roll for an amazing discount makes this transfer paper one of the best options if you plan on buying a larger stock.

Pros

  • Great with normal and glossy Oracal vinyl
  • Extremely affordable
  • Various sizes

Cons

  •  Doesn’t work as well with non-Oracal vinyl

6. Silhouette Transfer Tape Review

This is a transfer paper for Silhouette Vinyl that comes only in a 6-ft. roll. If you’re working mostly with Silhouette Vinyl, it’s a good idea to get this specialized tape even if you don’t need that much at first.

With this transfer paper for vinyl, you get a standard 1” x 1” red grid to help you place your decal better. But the tape itself is not clear, though you can still see the design underneath. If you’re crafting smaller details, you might look for a clearer tape.

Best transfer tape for vinyl decals

When you use this tape with Silhouette Vinyl, you’ll have no trouble removing the tape once you place the decal on the substrate. However, if you try to use it with some thing other than standard vinyl, removing only the tape becomes more difficult. That’s why you should always have something you can use to burnish the vinyl under the tape once you place it on the surface.

In short, it is a great transfer tape but you should primarily use it for Silhouette Vinyl. If you try to use it with something else, you may get frustrated quickly.

Pros

  • Perfect for Silhouette Vinyl
  • Affordable
  • Sticky and precise

Cons

  • Not fully transparent

7. Siser EasyPSV Application Tape Review

The Siser EasyPSV comes in four different sizes, so you won’t have to overpay for tape that you will never use. At the same time, you can save money thanks to the discounts when you buy in bulk.

This roll is medium tack, which it the best transfer paper for vinyl of various types. Glitter and high-gloss vinyl will require a bit more pressure to stick. But with the medium tackiness, you can skip the frustrating part where the decal doesn’t want to peel off the tape.

So, whether you use a normal vinyl or a special type, you should consider this tape. It comes at a far lower price than some other branded vinyl tapes but it does the job well.

If you want to buy the biggest roll, the size goes up to 150 feet. Since you can save almost double by buying the biggest roll, this is one of the best choices for serious crafters who require a great deal of tape. The size of the smallest option is 12” x 12”.

When it comes to opacity, this tape is completely transparent and has as very discrete 1” x 1” grid.

Thanks to this semi-transparent grid, you can see exactly what is going on underneath the tape, and you won’t miss out on any smaller details when placing your decal.

Pros

  • Extremely affordable
  • Versatile tape that works well with all vinyl types
  • Various sizes to choose from
  • Semi-transparent grid for better vision

Cons

  • Slightly pricey in comparison to other brands

8. Oracal HT55 Transfer Tape Review

This transfer tape works best with various Oracal vinyl types and decorative window films. You can use it effectively with dusted glass, frost glass, etched glass, as well as precise and glitter vinyl. It is our go-to tape for speciality type vinyl.

This is a huge Oracal roll with a 300-ft. length. The first thing that will catch your eye is the price, as it is up to three times cheaper when you compare it to some other offers. But you need to buy a large stock of transfer tape to get this discount.

You will notice that the tape is not fully transparent, and it also lacks a grid. So if you are a perfectionist when positioning your design, this tape may not be for you.

But if you frequently use a lot of transfer tape, don’t discard it out of hand. This transfer tape is sticky enough to pick up the smallest of details and will remove the decal easier than some other tapes on the list.

Also, buying 300 ft. of high-quality transfer tape for the price three times lower than some other brands is a great deal if you’re into crafting professionally.

Overall, this is an effective and affordable vinyl transfer tape roll that can save you a lot of money without compromising on the quality. It is an especially great choice if you’re crafting commercially.

Pros

  • Extremely cheap when buying in bulk
  • Works great with all Oracal vinyl
  • Effective and easy to use

Cons

  • Lacks transparency and a grid

9. StyleTech High Tack Transfer Tape Review

The StyleTech tape is especially useful when you’re working with thick vinyl. With this tape, transferring glitter vinyl and Oracal Oramask should be an easy job.

The stickiness is really high, so you should opt for different tape if you want to transfer normal vinyl. However, it can work well with Oracal 651 and 631.

It’s important to note that you can reuse this transfer tape many times. Start with using it for thicker vinyl, and then as the adhesiveness wears away, you can move on to thinner vinyl.

The tape is fully transparent with a red grid on the back, which will help you adjust the angles and position your design.

Unfortunately, the roll comes only with a length of 30 ft. This can be a bit too much tape if you don’t use transfer tape for glitter vinyl regularly.

However, considering that this tape can help you avoid a great deal of frustration, you should consider getting it even if you won’t use it all.

It is best to get both a high tack transfer tape and a medium tack transfer tape for vinyl decals that have more small details. So, you should always have a transfer tape like this one around even if it’s not your go-to choice.

Pros

  • Perfect for transferring thicker vinyl like glitter vinyl
  • High stickiness
  • Transparent with grid

Cons

  • Large size
  • Too sticky for everyday use

10. Frisco Craft Transfer Roll Review

This transfer roll is for crafters who want to stick to the basics. While it’s not the best vinyl transfer paper for detailed work, it has some very useful traits – it’s versatile and extremely adhesive.

The Frisco Craft is a 50-foot long roll that comes at a low price. It is completely transparent, and that means that it also lacks a grid, which is why it’s not right for some crafters.

On the other hand, the clear tape helps you get a full picture of what your decal will look like on your surface of choice.

Note that this tape does not come with release backing. It is easier to take the amount of roll you need, cut out the rest, and just stick it over your vinyl for transfer.

When it comes to versatility, you won’t be disappointed. The tape should work well with Cameo, Silhouette, Cricut, Oracal and many other types of vinyl, and you can use it on any surface that you prefer, from wood to glass.

If you prefer a thin, clear, quality transfer, this one is for you. Unfortunately, it only comes with a 50-foot roll, which may be too much for some.

Pros

  • Affordable and universal
  • Completely transparent
  • High adhesiveness

Cons

  • Comes only in a roll of 50 ft.

Verdict: What is the Best Transfer Tape for Vinyl?

If you consider everything from price and size to versatility, the Siser EasyPSV tape is probably the best choice. It comes in various sizes for an affordable price, and it works well with all vinyl types.

If you’re looking for tape for a specific vinyl, it is better to get one of the branded tapes from the list. Also, if you want to buy in bulk, Frisco Craft may be the best option. Wanting a cheap option and usually only working with standard vinyl? Craftopia Transfer Tape is a hot favorite.

All these tapes have their good and bad sides, so you have to find the most effective transfer tape for you. To do so, you need to consider how much transfer tape you need and what vinyl types you use the most often. You should also consider whether you like working with a grid or consider it irritating.

Once you venture into crafting, you’ll purchase plenty of different tapes anyway, and you’ll do your best work if you experiment. So don’t think too long about the selection – instead, you can pick one right away.

Cheap Vinyl Cutter Machine Reviews

So what is the best vinyl cutter for under $300? Here are some reviews to help you decide. 

I will outline the top features, the pros and cons of each in detailed reviews, which should help you choose the best cheap vinyl cutter 2020 has on offer.

1. Silhouette CAMEO 4 Review

silhouette-cameo-4-latest Silhouette Machine

The Cameo 4 is Silhouette’s latest cutting machine. It was released in September 2019 and boy are we excited by the under $300 price for this brand new cutter!

This dual-carriage machine is Silhouette’s top die cutter yet it’s affordable. It can work with a range of materials and connect with the most popular operating systems. If you need a potent DIY machine, this might be it.

The Silhouette Cameo 4 is a desktop vinyl cutter made for serious enthusiasts. It is a fabulous cutter for home crafters, but it is also a great option for small business who are starting out.

What is the newest Silhouette Machine

It offers a wide range of possibilities. Compatible materials include cardstock, fabric, vinyl, and most types of paper. The maximum supported sizes are up to 12” wide and 150 feet long.

The Cameo 4 features high-quality cutting blades with auto speed and depth. The maximum cutting depth is 3mm, which is standard at this price range. This a dual-carriage cutter which means it can perform two different operations in parallel. 

You can connect the Cameo 4 to all currently supported versions of Windows and Mac OS. Additionally, you can use Bluetooth to hook it up to your smartphone or tablet. It also has support for Silhouette Cloud, which can be great collaborative teams. Other supported technologies include PixScan and Print & Scan.


Pros

  • Dual-carriage
  • PC and Mac compatible
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • 3mm cutting depth
  • Speedy

Cons

  • Not the most elegant in looks

>>> Read more reviews on Amazon, grab more info on the cutter in our Cameo 4 review post or click the button below to check the price.


3. Cricut Explore Air 2 Review

The Cricut Explore Air 2 is arguably the world’s most popular vinyl cutter.

It offers standard connectivity options, dual-carriage construction, adjustable blades, and a highly competent design software. The secret has long been out about the Cricut Explore Air 2. It’s a safe choice that you can’t go wrong with. Here are some of the reasons why.

The Cricut Explore Air 2 is an easy-to-use vinyl cutter. While vinyl is the primary material, the Explore Air 2 can work with faux-leather, specialty paper, adhesive foils, cardstock, iron-on vinyl, specialty vinyl colors, and poster board.

In terms of size, this cutter has a 12 x 12” StandardGrip cutting mat, which is on par with the majority of similar models. You can use this cutter for vinyl stickers, greeting cards, custom home décor, as well as custom-printed t-shirts and baseball caps.

The Explore Air 2 is a dual-carriage model and it can perform two actions simultaneously.

You can combine between cutting, writing, and scoring any way you like.

The cutting blades are made of German carbide and you can adjust the depth and pressure via the onboard Smart Set dial.

In the compatibility and connectivity section, the Explorer Air 2 lets you connect to Windows and Mac computers. Bluetooth allows it to hook up with iOS and Android devices.

The Design Space design software lets you create your own designs.

Pros

  • Dual-carriage
  • Works with various materials
  • Win, Mac, iOS, and Android compatible
  • 12 x 12” cutting mat

Cons

  • No automatic pressure and speed adjustment

3. Sizzix 9” Big Shot Plus Review

The Sizzix Big Shot Plus is the beefed-up version of the Big Shot, Sizzix’s wildly popular small vinyl cutter.

It can do everything the standard Bigshot (which comes in multiple sizes) can, only that it has a bigger 3” opening. It is for cutting and embossing projects and Sizzix markets it as a hobby and small business model.

The Sizzix Big Shot Plus is based on… take a guess, the Sizzix Big Shot. The two look very much alike and they come in multiple sizes. This particular Big Shot Plus has a 9” opening.

Despite the larger size than the standard 6” model, the Big Shot Plus can easily fit any desktop. It is compact and portable, perfect for those who work in more than one location. This cutter measures 15-3/4” (W) x 11-3/4” (D) x 7-1/2” (H) and around 16 lbs.

The Big Shot Plus is a manual vinyl cutter, which you might expect at this price. It has an ergonomic handle wrapped in a comfortable rubber grip. The improved design is more ergonomic, which puts less stress on your hands and wrists.

This cutter can work with the entire Sizzix library, including Thinlits, Bigz, Textured Impressions, Framelits, Impresslits Embossing Folders, and Texture Fades. Only the Bigz Pro dies are out of its reach. You can also cut and emboss multiple small dies simultaneously.

The machine is made up of ABS plastic housing, solid steel gears, unibody cast roller housing, and solid-core steel rollers. The package includes the machine, adapter A, adapter B, platform, and two cutting pads.

The standard warranty on this model is 1 year, though you can extend it to 3 years if you register your cutter on the manufacturer’s official site (assuming you bought from an authorized dealer).

Pros

  • 9” opening
  • Cuts and embosses
  • Sturdy
  • Lightweight and portable

Cons

  • Can get tiring in extended use

4. Mophorn Laser Plotter Review

The Mophorn Laser Plotter can be used with a wide range of materials and it’s fairly fast. The Mophorn Laser Plotter is an affordable cutter/plotter for the hobby and DIY crowd. 

It offers decent power and speed, though perhaps not enough for heavy duty production use. But you’ll have no problem using it in a typical design agency or other small businesses.

In terms of material compatibility, this plotter can work with Kent paper, postcards, drawing paper, scrapbooking paper, inkjet photo paper, and other types of paper. It can also work with soft polyester and PVC films of up to 0.1mm thick.

Its maximum supported cutting width is 11.2”. The maximum supported length is 78.74”.

The Mophorn also has adjustable speed and pressure. The speed range is 10-800 mm per second and there are seven preset speeds. The pressure goes from 10 to 500 grams, and against with 7 presets. The controls include “Forward,” “Back,” “Align,” “Test,” “Cancel,” “Start/Pause,” and “Power.”

In terms of compatibility, this plotter can only work with Windows. Mac and Linux systems are not supported and there’s no plan for future support.

You can use SignCut X2, FlexiSIGN-PRO, WinPCSIGN, Artcut, EuroCut, Adobe Illustrator, CorelDRAW, and Auto CAD to prepare your projects.

Pros

  • Doubles as a plotter
  • Easy to use
  • Onboard controls
  • Excellent design software compatibility

Cons

  • Can’t engrave or emboss

5. Vevor Vinyl Cutter and Plotter Review

Plotter and cutter combos are very popular in vinyl cutter circles as they can handle a wider range of projects. And the Vevor Vinyl Cutter and Plotter is as affordable and capable as they come, what with its adjustable pressure and speed and comprehensive onboard controls.

The Vevor Vinyl Cutter and Plotter is a compact desktop machine with a maximum material handling width of 13.8” (but note that the maximum cutting and plotting width is 11.2”).

When it comes to speed and pressure, the Vevor model is second to none in its price class. It allows you to adjust the speed from 10 to 800 millimeters per second and the cutting pressure from 10 to 500 grams.

When it comes to materials, the Vevor Cutter and Plotter can work with various types of paper in addition to vinyl. You can use this plotter cutter to make stickers, prints for T-shirts, greeting cards, labels, home decorations, and other stuff.

Perhaps the Achilles’ heel of this plotter cutter is that it is only compatible with Windows PC. Even if that’s not a problem, people might get the impression that it’s not cool enough for Mac!

Luckily, it is very easy to operate. It has a backlit LCD display and the controls include an emergency start/stop button. The installed pinch rollers are compatible with affordable Roland blades.

Pros

  • Compatible with Roland blades
  • Easy to operate
  • Wide range of applications
  • Adjustable speed and pressure

Cons

  • Doesn’t work with Mac

>>> Read more reviews on Amazon or click the button below to check the price.


6. Brother CM350 Electronic Cutting Machine Review

The Brother CM350 is a budget cutting machine that perhaps outside of its price range. With this cutter, you’ll also be able to scan and edit your designs. What’s more, it can work in standalone mode if need be.

First of all, this electronic cutting machine is jam-packed with modern features. The high-resolution 4.85” touch LCD display is the centerpiece, not the least because you can’t miss it. You can use the LCD to create and edit your design with the help of the built-in ScanNCut 2 application. This is especially handy if you don’t have your computer around.

The Brother CM350 can also double as a scanner – and a good one at that, which is near impossible to find at this price range.

The maximum width is 12” and the included cutting mat is 12 x 12”, which you can upgrade to a 12 x 24” cutting mat if needed.

This cutter is compatible with Windows Vista, 7, 8, and 10. It is also wireless-ready for use with the ScanNCut Online app and ScanNCutCanvas. The former is an online transfer app while the latter is a cloud-based storage app. There is no support for Mac or Linux.

Pros

  • Doubles as a scanner
  • 85” touch LCD display
  • ScanNCut onboard, online, and cloud apps
  • Wireless ready
  • Works in standalone mode

Cons

  • The app isn’t the easiest to use on the machine itself and doesn’t support Apple devices

7. Gemini by Crafter’s Companion Review

Crater’s Companion makes two versions of the well-known Gemini die cut machine – the Gemini and the Gemini Junior. The standard Gemini is the topic of this discussion. It is a die cut machine so it can both cut and emboss.

The Gemini by Crafter’s Companion is ideal for hobbyist cutting and embossing projects.

It is compact and lightweight and not intended for heavy-duty commercial use. The Gemini weighs around 15 lbs., which gives it just enough heft to not move around when it’s working hard.

Make no mistake about it. This machine works fast at a 16-second pass-through at A4 or letter size.

This is impressive considering the fact that it is a made for casual and light commercial use. Needless to say, the much smaller Gemini Junior is going to be much faster, i.e. 10 seconds for a pass-through.

This cutting and embossing machine is compatible with the majority of embossing folders out there. Also, it can work with a wide range of materials, including vinyl, fabric, foil, cardstock, and paper. It works with thin metal dies and has a decent pressure for a hobby machine.

The highly responsive control buttons are one of the highlights of this model. They include start/stop, pause, and reverse. With them, you won’t have to do things manually anymore.

The cutting mat is 8.5 x 11” and can cut edge to edge A4 and letter-size formats.

The package also includes two clear cutting platforms, a metal cutting platform, plastic and magnetic shims, rubber embossing mat, several Gemini dies, multimedia die, 3D folder, user guide, and power cable.

Pros

  • Auto feed
  • Physical control buttons
  • Plenty of accessories
  • Versatile

Cons

  • Not wireless

8. VEVOR Vinyl Cutter 28" Review

The Vevor 28" Cutter is aimed at dedicated vinyl cutting businesses. We won't recommend this one if you only enjoy vinyl crafting as a hobby. 

The cutter comes with a stand, which is great if you are limited in desktop space. It is pretty speedy and has a cutting range from 10-800 mm/s.

The large LCD screen makes it easy to read stats, and the large buttons make it easy to set your desired speed and force. Talking about force, this cutter plotter has a cutting pressure of 10-500g.

It comes with two fully-adjustable pinch-rollers. It has a max paper feed of 28.3" and a large cutting width of 24.8".

Pros

  • Improved cutting speed and efficiency
  • Large 24.8" cutting width
  • Comes with a stand
  • Roland compatible blade holder

Cons

  • No Bluetooth Functionality
  • Doesn't work with Mac

9. Silhouette Portrait 2 Review

The Silhouette Portrait 2, the long-awaited update to the very popular original Portrait, came out in November 2017. If you are after a cheap Cricut machine, then this is it.

It is a compact and lightweight machine with excellent connectivity and multitasking abilities.

If you’re looking for a cheap vinyl cutting machine that can hold its own against expensive heavy-duty machines, you may not have to look any further.

The relatively compact and highly portable Portrait 2 measures 18 (W) x 8 (D) x 9” (H) and weighs 3.5 lbs. This cutter can work with 8” wide dies and 2mm media with its deep cutting blades.

This cutter has closed the gap with the top-of-the-line Silhouette Cameo 3, with which it shares a number of features. It has the same automatically adjustable blade that adapts to the thickness of the material. It can cut up to 2mm thick materials, just to name a couple.

The Portrait 2 excels in connectivity options. It can work with all the currently supported versions of Windows and Mac OS. Additionally, you can connect it to iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth and control the cutting process remotely. You can also connect it to your Silhouette Cloud account as one of your 5 devices.

In terms of materials, Portrait 2 can work with paper, transparencies, vellum, cardstock, vinyl, fabric, magnet paper, and heat transfer material. This is why it’s often marketed as a die cut machine rather than a vinyl cutter.

The Portrait 2 can handle materials of up to 10 feet long. However, it doesn’t have the power and build quality to withstand heavy commercial use. Instead, it is best used as a hobby device or for small workshops with moderate daily output.

The package contains the cutter, 8 x 12” cutting mat, autoblade, A/C adapter, power cable, USB cable, and Bluetooth removal tool.

Pros

  • Versatile
  • Relatively affordable
  • Wireless connection
  • PC and Mac compatible

Cons

  • Not a production quality machine

The Curio by Silhouette is a versatile and small vinyl cutter machine. It is among the cheapest options on the market and a great option for hobbyists. Aside from cutting vinyl, this cheap vinyl cutter machine can do many other things.

The Silhouette Curio is a compact machine made for desktop use. It is lightweight and has a small footprint. This modern cutter can cut thicker materials than its predecessors up to a maximum media thickness of 2mm. It also has an 8.5 x 6” base. However, you can buy the 8.5 x 12” mat separately if you have bigger projects. The deep cut tungsten alloy blade is one of the highlights.

This highly popular little cutter can also perform stippling, sketching, etching, printing, and embossing duties, making it one of the most versatile affordable cutters. As you might suspect, don’t expect commercial-grade quality from the Curio as it is made strictly as a hobby machine.

The Curio uses a dual head carriage, meaning it can do two things at once. For example, you can cut and score at the same time. Additionally, its cutting force of 210g is significantly lower than the other Silhouette vinyl cutters.

In terms of compatibility, you can connect this cutter to both PC and Mac via the included USB port. It uses Silhouette’s proprietary Silhouette Studio program and pulls resources from Silhouette’s own Design Store. It is easy to control and operate and equally easy to maintain.

Additionally, you can count on Silhouette’s excellent customer support and the large tight-knit community of Silhouette users whenever a problem arises. The package contains the cutting mat, embossing tips, USB cable, AC adapter, and installation CD with the app.

Pros

  • Very affordable
  • Versatile
  • Strong cutting blade
  • Windows and Mac OS compatible

Cons

  • Strictly for hobby use

Buyer’s Guide on How to Find the Best Vinyl Cutter Under $300

When shopping for a cheap vinyl machine, you should take some things into consideration. First, consider the type of motor the cutter’s equipped with. After that, you should look into compatibility and connectivity options.

Besides that, the compatible materials are a given – everyone knows how important that is.You should also consider other features, such as tracking precision, material size, speed and pressure adjust-ability, and noise levels.

Finally, you might as well look into the warranty and customer support quality.

Just because you are chasing cheap vinyl cutters, doesn't mean that you need to buy 'crap'. So here are some guidelines for you to follow.

1. Type of Driver Motor

There are two main types of driver motors used in vinyl cutter machines – stepper and servo motors. Let’s take a closer look at each option.

Stepper motors are affordable. They’re less sophisticated and precise than servo motors. Instead of smooth gliding, they move in small steps – thus the name.

If you’re working on small designs, a stepper driver might not be able to cut with perfectly smooth edges. They’re mechanical in nature and quite a bit noisier. Think of the dot matrix printer – about the same kind of noise.

If you can only afford to purchase a cheap vinyl cutter, then you will most likely have to settle for a stepper driver - and then just expect to have a bit of noise as it cuts.

Servo motors are driven by digital encoders that translate the commands sent by software. They offer smooth and relatively quiet operation.

Also, they’re far more precise than stepper motors, allowing you to create complex shapes and work with fine details. However, they can be significantly more expensive so you might not find them in cheap machines. If you can raise your budget a bit and prefer to get a machine with a servo motor, you should hop over to our vinyl cutter reviews here.

2. Compatibility and Connectivity

Digital cutters can work with a wide range of devices, and some of the more expensive models can also work on their own.

If you’re shopping for a budget cutter, you can assume that they all support the latest Windows operating systems. Think of it this way. If you’re a manufacturer, you can’t sell a lot of products if you don’t support Windows, though many of them support Mac OS X as well.

Decide if you want to go wireless or strictly wired. Bluetooth receivers are the most common option. They’re mostly used to connect the cutter to online design apps, cloud-based storages, and or design stores.

You can connect Bluetooth-enable machines to iOS and Android devices. This is helpful for whenever you can’t access your computer.

3. Type of Material

While all models can cut vinyl, they can work with other materials as well, including various types of paper, such as drawing paper, cardstock, postcards, Kent paper, scrap paper, and inkjet photo.

In addition, a large number of cutters are also able to handle fabric and clothing. Some models can work with faux leather, genuine leather, and even wood. So think about what other materials you’d like to work with.

4. Tracking Precision

If you plan on working on highly detailed projects, you’ll need a cutter with high tracking precision. Those with digitally driven servo drivers can have up to 10 times better tracking than those with standard stepper drivers (but again will probably cost you more than $300).

The quality of the built-in software also plays a role in tracking precision. The more comprehensive apps will let you iron out minor imperfections in your design for superior tracking precision over uneven surfaces.

5. Project Size

Vinyl cutters vary in size and capacity. Desktop models typically feature 6 to 12” opening and 12” cutters are most often equipped with cutting mats of 12 x 12” to 12 x 24”. They are great for smaller projects and light workloads.

On the other hand, commercial use cutters can go over 100”. With them, you can take on the biggest and the most demanding tasks. By commercial use, we mean production quality. That’s if you’re producing products for sale.

You may not need a commercial cutter for other business uses. If you run a design agency or print shop, for example, any of our recommended machines may serve your needs.

6. Adjustable Pressure and Speed

The pressure determines the type the thickness of compatible media. You may find 500 to 800 grams of pressure to be enough as found in most budget machines. The more sophisticated models can adjust the pressure on their own to fit various materials and thicknesses.

You might have to take the cutting speed into account as well. Commercial machines are swift and have variable speeds. Almost all models can adjust speed automatically, but some of them may also let you set your own speed.

7. Noise

Vinyl cutters are not quiet machines by any stretch. However, there are significant differences in noise levels. The mechanical gear on those with stepper drivers tends to be pretty loud.

On the other hand, those with digital servo motors are considerably quieter. They also tend to be more expensive and harder to operate due to the installed software.

8. Warranty and Customer Support

Finally, you may want to take the warranty and customer support into consideration before making the final decision. You might find US companies to offer the best customer support overall.

The warranty is a bit more subjective. If you’re like many Americans, you might look at a machine breaking down as an excuse to buy a new one. In any event, the standard warranty is 12 months. These are mechanical devices so most manufacturers are not going to offer very long warranties.

Some may extend the warranty if you register your cutter on their official site. That alone is controversial as well and many people don’t bother. It might seem free but it’s not. You’re going to have to provide your personal data and guess what they’re going to do with it? Facebook anybody?

Final Verdict​​​​​​​​

So, is there such a thing as the very best vinyl cutter machines under $300? Not really. It’s better to break them down.

For one, the Sizzix Big Shot Plus is the best option if you’re looking for a manual cutter. It’s sturdy, portable, and capable of cutting and embossing. It is also the cheapest vinyl cutter on our list.

But if you need a quality digital cutter with good compatibility, the Silhouette Cameo 4 is perhaps your best bet. It is a dual-carriage model with PC and Mac compatibility. It is way more than just a vinyl cutter, so it is brilliant for those who enjoy a wide range of DIY projects.

On another front, if you are looking for a dedicated vinyl cutter and plotter combo, the Vevor Vinyl Cutter and Plotter. You can expect intuitive onboard controls, adjustable speed and pressure, and excellent reliability.

Now that you have found a new budget cutting machine for your home, why not hop over to our craft blog section. We have loads of tutorials, project examples as well as step-by-step posts to help you get started. You can also grab some steps on how to use your new cutter on WikiHow here.

Buyers Guide for the Best Vinyl Roll Storage Racks and Holders

best vinyl roll holder

Here are some guidelines for you to help you figure out which storage option is the best option for your craft room. These are all ready-to-purchase options. But of course you also have the option of grabbing a DIY vinyl roll holder tutorial and building one from scratch. We love this one by Jennifer Maker.

1. Why Should You Organize Your Vinyl Roll Storage?

It’s important to have all your rolls in one place. This way, you can easily arrange them, access them, and protect them from damage.

I also know that you will most likely have way more adhesive vinyl and HTV vinyl in your craft room than you need. You can also save up some space in your room or office by storing these on the back of the door (shoe holder), under the desk (wrapping paper containers) or on the wall (see racks and vinyl wall holder ideas below).

2. What Dimensions Should I Look for in a Vinyl Rack Holder?

A standard vinyl roll is up to 12” in width and around 48″ in length, though there are wider options you can use for special projects. Always consider the width and diameter of your vinyl rolls that you typically buy when you are looking for a holder.

3. Price

A standard mounted vinyl holder can go up to $15 for a capacity of 20. But the price varies a great deal, depending on the material quality, capacity, and brand. This article will demonstrate why some holders are much more expensive than others.

 

Top 15 Vinyl Holder and Storage Racks

We scouted the internet and asked other crafters what type of storage they like using to help compile a lovely list of vinyl roll storage ideas of the BEST ways you can store your collection of vinyl. I’m sure one of these will be suitable for your room.

1. ArtBin Vinyl Storage Rack Review

ArtBin’s rack is a budget-friendly wall mount vinyl rack storage option. There are two holes on the top, so you can also place it on your wall. Since its size is just around 16.5“ x 8.6“ x1”, you should always have enough space for it.

To assemble it, simply unfold it and it will lock into position. There are no additional screws or other accessories that you need to use if you want to use it as a standing rack. You’ll need to apply two screws or sturdier nails and easily mount it to the wall.

There’s a space for 12 rolls, with each hole being 2” in diameter. You’ll have a hard time finding a cheaper vinyl roll storage rack that can fit 12 rolls and almost any space.

Pros

  • Low price
  • Easy to assemble and disassemble
  • You can mount it to the wall
  • Good utilization of space

Cons

  • Looks unimpressive
  • Cheap vinyl storage

2. Etsy Craft Vinyl Holder for the Wall Review

vinyl wrap rack

Looking for a gorgeous unique vinyl roll wall rack? We absolutely love the elegant look of this rack that is backed onto a beautiful piece of wood.

The board is 37″ long and fits 8 rolls. If you would like to customize the rack, you can message the seller and request to do so – how handy is that!

You can choose to have the backboard in either white, black, ebony, jacobean, true brown or espresso. You also have the option of requesting the wood to be either natural or stained.

Pros

  • If you would like a longer board, you can order customization
  • Ready-to-hang
  • You can pick from a variety of colors to match your space
  • You can mount it to the wall
  • Good utilization of space

  • Pricey delivery fees

3. Harper Blvd Leal Black Storage Rack Review

If you want a vinyl roll rack with a modern and elegant design, you should take a look at this black vinyl wall rack.

With a size of 27.5“ x 35“ x 46“, you shouldn’t have trouble mounting it to a wall. But if you don’t have enough wall space, you can also use it as a standard rack.

The top pole connects the two sides of the rack that help it stand. You can disconnect it by unscrewing the sides from each other. Then, you can hang the front side to the wall and use it as hanging vinyl storage.

The aesthetics and space-friendly features are a considerable upside, but this rack can only fit up to 8 rolls. So, if you’re looking for higher storage capacity, you may want to skip it.

Pros

  • You can hang it on a wall
  • Elegant design
  • Space-friendly with 27“ wide and 35“ high

Cons

  • Small storage space

>>> Click here to grab this rack from Amazon

 

4. Signworld Vinyl Storage Rack Review

This storage rack has a bigger capacity and uses up a little more space than some other models. It’s 70” high and 33” wide, so you will have to find a proper place for this one. But once you find where to put it, you will have a place for 40 vinyl rolls.

The powder-coated steel material prevents damage and corrosion while keeping the whole product stable. You just slip a roll into one of the arms on the holder, and it will stand. Each one can hold up to 30 lbs. of weight. You won’t need to worry about the rack breaking under the weight of all your rolls.

However, there might be a problem if you want to place smaller rolls on the arms. Most 30” rolls will fit perfectly, but you may have difficulties with other sizes.

Pros

  • Holds up to 40 rolls
  • Strong and durable construction
  • Stands still

Cons

  • Might not fit rolls with a small diameter
  • Challenging to assemble

5. The Roll Keeper Craft Vinyl Storage Review

This vinyl roll holder has an interesting, mount-only design. It can hold 25 vinyl rolls in a very tight space. Since it doesn’t have legs, you can only hang it to the wall or door. It is only 6” wide, so it won’t take up a lot of space on your wall.

If you don’t want to spend much money on vinyl storage racks, consider this one, as it is both affordable and has a lot of capacity. You can even get bigger storage from the same manufacturer, holding up to 50 rolls.

Keep in mind that the hanger is not the most durable so don’t stack it with heavy rolls, as it may break.

Pros

  • Large capacity
  • Takes up very little space
  • Convenient to use
  • Comes in larger sizes

Cons

  • Can’t stand, mount-only
  • Not the strongest hanger

>>> Click here to try out this cheap option for storing your rolls

 

6. Holdin’ Storage Hanging Holder Review

The Holdin’ Storage is another mount-only vinyl roll holder, but this one has space for much more than just rolls. It’s made from a durable, soft fabric with pockets and sleeves for various accessories on each side. At the center of the holder, there’s a strong metal bar that keeps everything in place.

Just hang the 360-degree hook on a pole in your room and you’ll have all your crafting accessories in one place.

You can fit up to 20 rolls inside this storage option. However, the accessibility and organization are not ideal since there are no separate pockets for your rolls. You always have to open the holder and dig through.

On the upside, the outer pockets fit scissors, ribbons, tapes, cards, pens, highlighters, and any other crafting accessories. This storage is quite affordable and it’s one of the more interesting-looking options around.

Pros

  • Stores up to 20 rolls
  • Pouches for other accessories
  • A unique design

Cons

  • Sorting and organization are difficult

7. Alvin King-Size Mobile Storage Review

This one has 4 built-in wheels that make it your personal storage cart. It has a simple cube-like fence design with four different openings for your rolls. All these openings are 9“ x 14“, so you can sort different rolls in different pockets.

The best part about this storage is its mobility. You can push it around and it will smoothly glide through the room.

But you should know that you need to assemble this product yourself. Since it comes in many different parts and requires some additional tools, it’s not easy to put together. If you don’t consider yourself handy enough, you should probably skip this one.

Pros

  • 4 built-in wheels make it mobile
  • Big enough pockets for more than just vinyl rolls
  • Sturdy steel construction

Cons

  • Difficult to set up

>>> Click here to grab these wheeled roll storage trolleys

 

8. Stanton Wrapping Cart Review

Here is a versatile vinyl roll stand with three drawers. This wooden construction is designed to help you keep gift wrapping supplies organized, but you can also use it for vinyl rolls and other supplies too.

As it is only 20” wide, you can fit it in most spaces you can easily move it around since it has 4 built-in wheels. Drag it from corner to corner until you find a perfect spot.

The top part consists of long poles which act as roll holders, while the drawers are on the bottom part. The rolls also fit into the drawers, but you can use them for accessories and various other things.

The Stanton cart is a reliable, great-looking product with multiple uses. However, it may strain your budget.

Pros

  • Wooden, modern furniture design
  • Doesn’t use up a lot of space
  • Has good capacity
  • 3 drawers for storage
  • 4 built-in wheels for mobility

Cons

  • More expensive than most vinyl holders

9. Signworld Vinyl Storage Rack Review

Signworld racks come in various sizes and this one can fit 20 rolls. Design-wise, it is simply a smaller version of Signworld’s popular 40-rolls rack.

In this case, you get a 26” x 32” x 16” storage rack that you can mount to a wall or any other hanging space. When you unpack the rack, you need to make two holes and put up two screws or hooks. These hanging accessories don’t come with the product.

When you mount it, you’ll get space-saving, 20-roll storage that can hold up to 600 lbs. of weight overall.

As with its larger model, the arms on this Signworld holder are a little too big for some smaller rolls, so depending on your preferred vinyl rolls, you may want to consider a rack with thinner arms or poles.

Pros

  • Good utilization of space
  • Reasonably cheap
  • Strong construction

Cons

  • Not suitable for rolls with small diameters

>>> Click here to buy this roll rack on Amazon

 

10. Signworld BV38 Holder Review

It can contain only three rolls on its stainless steel poles, but these rolls can be 42” wide. As it fits a 7” diameter, this holder is perfect for bigger vinyl rolls.

As with most of Signworld’s vinyl roll storage holders, you will need to hang this on a wall. There are two holes that you can mount on two hooks or screws and it should hold well. Each pole is extremely strong and it can hold up to 77 lbs.

Pros

  • Perfect for big, heavy rolls
  • Fits seamlessly into any environment
  • High-quality material

Cons

  • Only contains 3 rolls

>>> Click here to buy this roll holder

 

11. Whitmor Clear Vinyl Wrap Roll Holder Review

 

The Whitmor organizer is for those who want to save a lot of space and don’t need to organize their vinyl rolls very precisely. It is a very convenient way to keep all your rolls in one place and store them away when you don’t need them.

You can place around 25 rolls inside of this organizer, but keep in mind that the measures are for standard gift wrap. The organizer is 31” long, and it is made from a clear material and has a zippered top.

You can zip up all your rolls in this holder and the impenetrable material will keep them from damage. If you opt for the Whitmor, you won’t have to worry about moisture or any other external conditions. So if you need a super cheap, spacious, and portable organizer, consider this one.

Pros

  • Good protection from moisture
  • Easy to move around or put away when not needed
  • Stores a lot of rolls

Cons

  • Hard to organize
  • Not for serious crafters

12. MISSLO Organizer Review

The MISSLO organizer is also a holder that requires a wall or a door to set up. However, unlike other mounted-only storage options, this MISSLO comes with two hooks so you can place it on a door right away — no need to do any additional drilling and assembling.

Since there are six different-sized pouches, you can store not only rolls but also various other things like crafting accessories and items of clothing. The pouches are waterproof, so your rolls and other vulnerable objects will be safe as long as you don’t overload the holder.

The organizer is 59” high, but with only 14.5” wide. So, you’ll have a lot of storage capacity in a small space, and you can even take it traveling.

Pros

  • Comes with two hanging hooks, setting up takes minutes
  • Waterproof, protective material
  • Low price

Cons

  • Can’t hold too many heavy items

13. IRIS Storage Box Review

If you’re looking for a discreet storage box that you can hide away when you don’t need it, consider this one. This plastic box is 33” wide, so it should fit most of the standard rolls.

It gives you a 33”x12” space to fit your rolls. The product comes with a divider and an accessory box. You can place it inside and make a separate section, where you can place scissors or other accessories that you use together with your vinyl rolls.

You can easily put this box under your bed and store it away when you don’t need it. It is also sturdy and big enough to store some other things inside. But if you want to store only rolls, there are cheaper and more easily organized alternatives.

Pros

  • A section for accessories
  • Easy to put away
  • You can use it as a regular storage box

Cons

  • The price

14. Wallniture Multi-Use Brackets Review

With this wall vinyl holder, you’ll get a modern, minimalistic design to fit in your household interior. Place it directly on the wall, or under a shelf, and it will look appealing as well as being useful.

It comes with two brackets with a set of 6 circles on both sides to hold your rolls, maps, other long objects. The circles are durable, with a diameter of almost 3”. The best thing about them is that you can choose the length of the holder since the two sets come separately.

Despite all the great features, this holder still contains only 6 rolls, and for the price, you can get a better value; however, if you like the design, you won’t regret buying it.

Pros

  • Pick the length of the holder yourself
  • Durable material
  • Looks great in any room or office space

Cons

  • Expensive considering the low storage space

 15. AdirOffice Mobile Storage Review

This is a storage option for professionals. This sophisticated wooden storage can fit up to 20 regular-sized rolls regardless of length. You can easily organize your vinyl rolls and access each one without any trouble.

The storage is made from durable wood and it should last for a long time. There are 4 wheels at the bottom which make this storage easy to move around. There are also two handles, so you can also effortlessly carry it around.

If you’re serious about crafting or if your business involves blueprints, maps, or another type of paper rolls, consider this storage. However, you should know that it is the most expensive one on the list.

Pros

  • High-quality wood
  • Serious design that fits any interior
  • Top-notch organization
  • 4 wheels for moving it around

Cons

  • Very expensive

>>> Click here to grab this nifty storage cart for your vinyl rolls

 

16. PACON Classroom Keeper Storage Review

Although it has “Classroom” in its name, this PACON holder is suitable for plenty of other spaces. It’s interesting, colorful design can add life to a sterile environment and the 27.8 x 25.1 dimensions mean you can fit it into any corner and small space.

The best thing about the storage is that you can use a divider to set up the size and the number of slots. For example, you can make 4 big slots or 16 small ones. Thanks to this, you can customize the holder any way that you want.

On the other hand, the cardboard material makes it one of the least durable options on this list. So you get a good looking and spacious holder, but it may be easily damaged by moisture or improper handling.

Pros

  • Small and spacious
  • Possibility to adjust the size and number of slots with divider
  • Simple, colorful design

Cons

  • Not very durable

>> Buy some of these boxes from Amazon and give them a try

The Cameo 4 Silhouette has the ability to draw and cut on over 100 different types of material and we love that it can cut material that has a width of up to 12 inches by a crazy 10 feet long. And we love the fact that it has the ability to cut materials without the need for a cutting mat!

We love our Cameo 4 and it is one of the best selling machines from our affiliate links on our website as well.
