I received a cutting machine for Christmas a few years ago. At first it was just fun to make things for my three girls and friends. I started out monogramming things for them, then onto shirts, and that was a lot of fun. I was starting to have more and more friends wanting shirts. My husband then encouraged me to make it into a business and with his help, that's exactly what I did.

I knew I wanted to have the word vinyl in the name. We live in the Nashville area and our area code is 615, which is kinda a big deal locally, lots of pride. You see it on hats, shirts, bumper stickers, pretty much anything. My husband suggested what about “vinyl615”? I said “yes, that's it” The rest is history, as they say.

My biggest challenge is I'm a perfectionist. I want it to look perfect, so it can be rather time consuming.

I'm good at getting my product to the customer in a timely manner. I would say I'm easy to work with. I want it to look perfect for my customer, so I'm always letting them see the design before I cut it. I also try to create things that you have not seen anywhere else.

vinyl 615 logoStacey Huddleston

I define my success by being able to create something that someone else is going to enjoy. Having money come along with that is not bad either :-)
