Default Supplies

Hi everyone, I’ve finally gone and done it - I have my new press and Cricut cutter arriving in he next couple of days!

Can anyone advise where I can find good suppliers of vinyl and transfer paper?

Also, what is the difference between printable vinyl and transfer paper? Is it just the feel?

Im also looking for good quality tees - gildan?

Thanks anyone in advance!!

Hi Leeh,

For Gildan Tees, I find BTC Activewear the cheapest and they should charge carton rate for everything. If not you have Ralawise and Absolute Apparel who both should be reasonable.

For vinyl most people use mdp supplies or xpres they both sell the same stuff just rebranded so have a look at prices. There's a different vinyl sold by magictouch that is cheaper and you can buy it direct from magictouch although I can't confirm if it's sold in smaller pieces for your cricut.

Printable vinyl usually requires a solvent printer to print it before it is cut out, these printers are very expensive. Whereas transfer paper only uses an inkjet printer so is much more affordable. The feel is different as one is vinyl and one is paper.

+ 1 for MDP, BTC and Absolute Apparel. All give a reliable next day service.



Both BTC and Absolute offer £50 carriage paid ordering if you order on a Friday, which is handy for smaller orders/start-ups.


MDP are good for other supplies - also don't rule them out for a basic range of garments.They are a few pennies more than BTC, but if you can combine with a vinyl order then you will save on postage when compared with ordering from two suppliers.


Depending on where you live, MDP have 9 branches/trade counters accross the UK.
