What kind of vinyl do you use for Cricut?

I’ve been mostly using their new lines of Patterned Cricut vinyl for all my projects.  It’s so on trend and fun, and you know I love a great pattern.

How does the Cricut vinyl work?

Cricut Vinyl is basically an amazing way to make your own custom stickers and intricately cut designs without having to find a custom cutting company.

Do you need transfer tape for vinyl?

It’s not necessary, but it’s SUCH a lifesaver!  My bestie and I were crafting one day and she’d had her Cricut well over a year, and when she saw my transfer tape she started laughing and mentioned she’d been applying all her letters by hand.  Individually.  Try transfer tape!!!  You’ll love it!

What will vinyl stick to?

I’ve used it on glass, vinyl, metal, plastic, and wood.  Computers, cars, water bottles, shampoo bottles, walls, windows, mirrors and more.  If the surface is nice and flat Cricut vinyl will probably stick to it.


From Cricut: Cricut Premium Vinyl – Permanent is ideal for projects that need to weather the storm, from mailboxes to mugs, to outdoor signage and more. It’s a water-resistant and UV-resistant film with an adhesive that can last for up to 3 years.

Can Cricut vinyl go in dishwasher?

I get this question a lot surprisingly.  Anything labelled “Permanent” vinyl is considered dishwasher friendly.  But what does that mean?  It means you can put it in your dishwasher and it should hold up great.  I’m a rebel and use my NON Permanent vinyl all the time on water bottles and just hand wash, OR know I’m going to be making something cute new and fun when it eventually needs to be replaced.  My kids are big fans of always getting to redo theirs so it’s never been a really big issue around my house.
