Before selecting craft vinyl, take the time to understand what craft vinyl is and the main differences between the types of Avery™ craft vinyl. Besides learning about the kinds of vinyl Avery™ offers, it's also crucial to know about the styles of vinyl you can choose from and the many benefits of using Avery™ craft film.
Craft vinyl refers to a subcategory of vinyl films. Crafters can use these films with hobby-style vinyl cutters, such as the Cricut and Cameo models. Typically, people use craft vinyl to produce decals and small lettering.
Usually, you can identify craft vinyl by its higher tack and its permanent adhesives. Craft vinyl doesn't have air release channels, much like those found in vinyl wraps. Since craft films utilize transfer tape, air channels would make it so the vinyl sticks to the tape instead of the substrate. In place of air channels, craft vinyl's self-adhesive, pressure-sensitive layer goes on the vinyl's back, allowing it to adhere to several surfaces, ranging from semi-rough to smooth.

These calendered craft vinyl films are well-suited for crafting projects in the office, school or home. They're also quite cost-effective for those on a budget.
