ST. LOUIS, MO – Coastal Business Supplies targets the crafting and hobbyist market by offering a selection of Siser heat transfer vinyl products in 12” sheets. Popular colors in the EasyWeed, EasyWeed Stretch and Glitter vinyl product ranges are stocked by the sheet, making efficient and convenient purchasing possible for customers with Silhouette and Cricut setups.
“Our biggest priority at Coastal is offering the products our customers need to succeed and ensuring they get them as quickly as possible,” says Coastal Marketing and Communications Manager Candis Spraul. “We recognized that many of our lifelong vinyl customers utilize desktop production setups for their small businesses and crafting endeavors, so we made it a goal to provide them with supplies that are perfect for their needs.”
Previously, Coastal’s customers could only purchase heat transfer vinyl by the roll. For those individuals seeking the HTV supplies needed for small runs or craft projects with multiple colors, purchasing specific vinyl colors in bulk can sometimes be inconvenient and unnecessary.
“We realize that the demand for custom one-offs is on the rise, and not every customer is regularly producing large-quantity runs,” says Spraul. “Anyone can get their hands on a vinyl cutter these days and we want to make sure we offer the supplies people need to let their creativity reign – whether that means adding small accents to a larger design, or fulfilling a small order of shirts. Coastal is there to support and supply everyone with the tools for success, from the crafting weekend warriors, to the Etsy start-ups, to your favorite t-shirt store.”

It is February and Valentine’s theme is all around us. With that in mind, we are bringing you detailed instructions on customizing and creating your own rhinestone template designs that you can fall in love with! All you need is the Cameo, Silhouette Studio Designer edition, Sticky Flock, and of course – rhinestones!
To install the Designer edition- open the Silhouette Studio® software program, go to the “Help” menu, select” Upgrade Silhouette Studio”, enter the following: Designer Edition license key, Silhouette account email address, Silhouette account password. Click on the “Submit” button. The license key will then be applied and the software will be upgraded immediately. If you need to locate this number, you may find it by signing into your account either in the Silhouette Design Store in the software, or by signing into your account through the website. Once logged in, you may go to the My Account page. Your license key code will be listed under Silhouette Studio Keys. In the Silhouette Design Store, the number is listed at the bottom of the main account page. The Silhouette Studio Designer Edition code can only be applied twice.
You can create designs in Silhouette Studio’s Designer Edition by converting simple images to rhinestones, by point and click or completely freehand drawing. In our example, we have combined all three options.
DO NOT resize your design once it has been converted to rhinestones. The rhinestone size has been set and drawn exactly as is, so if you resize and run it through the cutter, the holes will not match the rhinestones.
