Let’s face it, the Cricut Maker (and any of the cutting machines from the Cricut family) are pricey. But so too is a KitchenAid Stand Mixer and an acoustic guitar, which like crafting, are also considered hobbies .
Although for many of us, crafting is first and foremost a hobby that we enjoy, owning a Cricut machine does give you the potential to turn that hobby into a side hustle.

Building A Profitable Cricut Business
There are a few considerations to keep in mind as you’re thinking of selling your Cricut products.
Make products that are in high demand
This may seem obvious, but not everything we create makes a great product for sale. The best things to make for a business are those that others are searching to buy for themselves or others.
Think about how your creations can meet the needs of buyers for special occasions such as weddings, baby showers, or the holiday season. As you start to sell your items, you’ll identify some best sellers – keep building off of those to expand your product line.
Consider your costs
Be sure to keep close track of the cost of materials you use in your crafting to ensure that you’re going to be profitable with your handmade items.
Everything from the cost of the machine (be is the Cricut Explore Air, Cricut Joy or the Cricut Maker), the consumables (e.g. vinyl, paper, heat transfer vinyl, transfer tape, the surface you are using), cut file costs (or Cricut Access membership) are just a few costs which need to be factored in to your final price point.
Will you make custom designs?
The best part of Cricut crafting is the ability to customize and make trully unique items for your customers.
While adding that personal touch is always a good idea when building your business, custom work takes more time which will cut into the profibility of your products.
Do you need a commercial license to create your products?
If you are using your own designs for your cut files you don’t need to worry about a license for commercial use.
However, if you plan to upload digital files that someone else has made, be sure to check the licensing policies. Most free SVG files are offered just for personal use only. The Cricut Angel Policy outlines how images and cut files from Cricut Design Space can be used by small businesses.
