Check out this post for the best place to buy a Cricut machine in Canada.
Living up here in the great white north comes with a few pretty unfortunate side effects. For instance, there were a few days this winter that the school buses didn’t run because it was -40. Or, more to the task at hand – the lack of craft stores and online shopping compared to our American counterparts.
Thankfully for you, I’ve gathered a list of my favourite vinyl sources that are available up here in Canada. Keep reading for the best scoop and deals!

Where to Buy Vinyl in Canada:
I generally get most of my vinyl through Cricut’s website. The website is listed in US$ but they do ship to Canada, and there is usually a free shipping coupon code for over 99$. They sell various types of vinyl, including removable (similar to Oracle 631), permanent (similar to Oracle 651), glitter, foil, dry erase, patterned, and even bulk rolls. Prices start at $2.99USD for a 4′ roll of vinyl. They also offer heat transfer vinyl (HTV, or iron on) in glitter, patterned, metallic, holographic, and sports flex, plus many more. Check out the new shimmer line, it’s my absolute fave!
Cricut has material sales quite often, so its easy to get a great deal on vinyl. You can also take advantage of your access discount (if you are an access member) or use a 10% off coupon (valid on $50+ orders but not machines) such as SPRINGMAKERS. These coupon codes change every three months, so check to see if yours is up to date. Also, it’s important to note that Cricut handles duties and custom fees, so you won’t have any nasty surprises when your parcel arrives.
I find the prices great on Cricut (plus the frequent free shipping which means I can order blades, mats, and materials in one shot), which is why I usually order from there, but there are more options, like…
Happy Crafters Canada
I just discovered Happy Crafters Canada and love their selection of vinyl, both adhesive and heat transfer. They offer all of the usual suspects (the Oracle line for adhesive and Siser for heat transfer) with a few additional types that Cricut doesn’t carry. For instance, I am madly in love with the ombre shimmer HTV, and also the flocked HTV.
Shipping isn’t free, but I have heard that free shipping is one of the coupon codes they often offer. There always seems to be a sale on some type of vinyl, so it’s best to check back frequently (or better yet, subscribe to their newsletter). Shipping is a flat rate of $9.95, which is not horrible, and all prices are in CAD, so you don’t have to worry about the exchange rate. If you’re local to Brampton or the GTA, you can even order online and pick up in store, which will save you the shipping fee.
Ahh, good ol’ Amazon. When all else fails, check Amazon. You will find a lot of different types of vinyl (and prices) on Amazon. It’s kind of like the Wild West (and admittedly, not as great as Amazon.com). But, if you have a prime membership, you have access to a lot of products that will ship for free and arrive quickly, like this 10′ Oracle roll for under $20.
Plus, if you are a Prime member, you can score free shipping on a lot of the listings AND receive it in two days!
If you need your vinyl or HTV right away, your best bet would be Michaels. While it isn’t as cost effective as some of the other online options (especially since you can’t use their coupons on Cricut or Silhouette items), it’s your only surefire in-person hit (unless you live in the Happy Crafter area of course and can pick up in store). They just released the machines at Wal-Mart and Costco. Maybe, fingers crossed, we get more access to cutting materials through those stores soon as well!
