I’m often asked “Where is the best place to buy….?” or “Is ‘XYZ’ a good product to use?”
There are so many options that it can often be overwhelming to know where to start, so I’ve compiled this list of brands and suppliers I know and trust, along with some discount codes that will save you a little money. There’s a lot of information here, but I hope it will be helpful to you!
Some of the links are affiliate links, which means that if you click on the link and make a purchase, I may make a small commission at no extra cost to you. I will continue to update the list from time to time as I discover new materials and more great places to shop 😉.
If you ever have a less-than-satisfactory experience with any vendor on the list, please let me know so I can re-evaluate my recommendation.

VINYL – HEAT TRANSFER & ADHESIVE
When buying Heat Transfer Vinyl, you can’t go wrong with brands such as Siser, Chemica, and B-Flex. For adhesive vinyl, I prefer Orafol products. These brands are all sold through distributors, both locally and online.
