How To Create Signs Without a Die Cutting Machine

If you are anything like me, you are probably intimated by the thought of having to buy a cutting machine, learn all the programs and tech behind it, and buy all the fonts to use for commercial use just so you can make and sell your creations. It took me a long time and a lot of money to learn all of these steps for my Silhouette  in order to create the signs and business that I have now. I’m going to be honest, it hasn’t been easy. There has been numerous rolls of vinyl wasted (and if you know me and the Prairie Pine Designs mission, this makes me cringe!), numerous hours spend on software gliches and downloads, and precious time spent on weeding and transferring of designs.

I am here to tell you there’s a better way! You no longer need to figure out a fancy machine or waste vinyl on one design. Now, you can make multiple signs and designs in the time you would spend making just one! It’s so crazy to see the time and money I have saved in these past two months since discovering Chalk Couture!

As you can probably tell, I have fallen in LOVE with Chalk Couture! The products have made it so simple and easy to create beautiful home decor pieces that are both temporary and permanent. I was introduced to this new company at the end of July 2017. As soon as I saw the products in action, I knew I had to get my hands on some product and be apart of this awesome company!  Chalk Couture has literally transformed how I make signs and other home decor designs. It has saved me time, energy, and material that I would otherwise be using on cutting vinyl and weeding. It has also increase my sales and profits because my production time has increased tremendously! 

You can check out Chalk Couture products in action by watching this FB #Live where I demonstrated some of the REUSABLE transfers…..

As you probably saw in the video, Chalk Couture can be used in so many different ways, and it allows sign makers like myself create even more in half the time ; ) If you have ever wanted to create your own decor, make handmade gifts, or create your own at home creative business, then Chalk Couture is definitely something to consider!

By the way, these products would be really fun for a  DIY night, Christmas Gifts, Wedding or Baby Shower signage, Birthday gifts, and more! 

With all of that being said, I want to be totally honest, Chalk Couture is an awesome company, but it is a Direct Sales Business. I have always stereotyped Direct Sales and told myself that I would never be a network marketer. I had no interest in this sales/business model from past experiences with friends and family. But, once I saw what these products could do for me and my business, I took a leap of faith. Chalk Couture just launched in July of 2017, and I became a designer on August 1, 2017. I am thrilled to be apart of a ground floor opportunity that is changing my creative business by leaps and bounds and is helping others just like me. If you are at all interested in trying out these products for yourself, please feel free to shop my chalk shop at

So what does it mean to be a designer? By becoming a Chalk Couture Designer, you are able to purchase ALL products at a 40% discount (Score!) while also receiving a free transfer every single month in the mail!

You can also purchase your own inventory and attend vendor shows, craft fairs, DIY make & take parties, etc. When customers by from your inventory on hand, you will receive a 40% commission! How awesome is that?

What is required to become a designer? To become a designer, you will need to purchase a Chalk Couture Starter Kit for $99. This kit included over $200 worth of Chalk Couture product that you will need to get started. A monthly fee of $25.99 is also required of all designers. This fee covers your costs for the online website and chalk couture phone app. Lastly, you have to purchase $150 worth of product every quarter ($600 a year). At first I was really intimidated by this. My budget didn’t allow for that much in purchase. But, what I didn’t realize until further research is that the products you buy to hit you personal volume (the $150 per calendar quarter) is part of your inventory and should be sold for profit!
