The Vinyl Stand, B-Flex & Orafol, OH MY!
Welcome to our first blog post! We are so excited to take you along this crafting journey and hopefully help you all learn your machines a little better!
The crafting world is forever changing, evolving and it can be very overwhelming! Look no further because here at The Vinyl Stand, we have your back! This blog will serve as an outlet for you to come learn about your machine, the vinyl, the best up keep, my favorite blanks, and so much more! I am so excited for you all to be on this journey with me! Before we can really start, allow me to introduce myself, this company and the awesome items we sell!
My name is Candace and I am a small business owner and a sales associate at The Vinyl Stand! I am in college, engaged and raising a sweet little puppy along with working at The Vinyl Stand, my church and babysitting. My schedule is pretty packed but I love staying busy! I have been using Silhouette products for the last 4 years and I just got a Silhouette 4, which I LOVE! I have used the Curio, Cameo (1, 2, 3 & now 4) and the Silhouette Mint! I love each of them for different reasons and I hope that you find your fit too!
Enough about me! The Vinyl Stand is there real reason you are here! The Vinyl Stand is a new vinyl company in the Evans/Augusta area! We carry B-Flex Heat Transfer Vinyl, Oracal Vinyl, Flex Presses, a limited selection on Cricut products and more! We are one of the only local business that keeps Comfort Colors shirts in at all times and are the only store in the area that sells a 50/50 blend on Gildan shirts!
B-Flex heat vinyl is one of the most underrated vinyl of all time. B-Flex vinyl is a premium heat transfer vinyl that lasts over 100 washes. The colors that we carry in B-Flex are always being expanded upon to give you the biggest selection for all your crafting needs! B-Flex has a few different lines of heat press vinyl such as: Gimme5 Specialty, Glam, Metallic, Flock, Fatty and more! The heat transfer vinyl that B-Flex produces presses at a low heat for a short amount of time, which is like magic! I have loved every product I have ordered and I cannot wait to try some other vinyl from their vast selection!!
The other product that we carry comes from Orafol! Orafol makes a lot of different lines of vinyl! We carry two lines in the store: Oracal 631 + Oracal 651! Oracal 631 is a matte finished which is a temporary vinyl. Oracal 631 will last between 1-3 years depending on what it is put on and how its handled. Oracal 651 is more permeant and this has a glossy finish. We almost every color in the Oracal 651 series and we also sell the transfer tape that is made for Oracal products. Oracal 651 is meant to last 4-6 years depending on how it is handled and what it is applied to. Oracal 651 is also the most used for products such as cups, cars, and windows.
Hopefully this post showed you a little more about us and what we sell! Keep checking in, these blogs are going to be something you do NOT want to miss!
