How to accidentally start a vinyl decal business...

I wish we could say that Hapa Designs was some well thought out and well planned company, but that would be too easy! I own a small specialty sporting goods company and we purchased a vinyl cutter in order to make camouflage stencils. Unfortunately, this is right about the time that the water printing process hit mainstream and anyone with a kiddie pool could print anything they wanted on their gear. The vinyl cutter sat unopened in the corner and I kicked myself for waiting 35 days to try and return it. Due to a 30 day return policy it was mine to keep.

A few months later my sister asked if we could make some decals for my niece's 1st birthday party. Thrilled to do something with the cutter I got to cutting vinyl like a madman. The decals were a hit at the party and people asked where they could buy them. Always the entrepreneur, I answered that I would be happy to take their order and Hapa Designs was born (actually we called ourselves J2S Vinyls but that is a different story)

All of this happened at just the right time as a month or two after we opened we saw a HUGE increase in sales of a single item, a pair of glasses that goes on your Mac laptop { Check it out here: https://goo.gl/FsxBVE ) we went from 3 to 4 orders a day to hundreds of orders a day. A call from my sister to tell me that our decal was featured on an Apple commercial for the MacBook Air blew me away. This huge volume of sales allowed us to expand the company and add custom embroidery, 3D printing, dog tags and custom banners. As of recently, dye sublimation printing, laser engraving and screen printing have been added to the rapidly growing list of ways to customize and personalize just about anything you can think of.

One thing that has stayed the same since the first day is our commitment to our customers. Our tagline, Bringing you the best products at the best prices with the best service, is not some marketing ploy, it guides us in every aspect of the business. We will never trade profits for service and quality.

I am always available to our customers, if you send an email on a Saturday night at 1:00am there is a good chance you will get a reply within minutes ( it is currently 10:52pm on a Friday night).

Please feel free to reach out if I can be of any service. We happily make donations to non profits and schools so please let us know if we can help out!

Thank you,

Shop members

  • Jonathan

    Co-owner, Maker, Head Tractor Driver

    When not in the office, which lately isn't often, he enjoys spending time in the outdoors with his family or on the water. He also enjoys firearms training and can often be found wrangling one of our many ducks.

  • Koihana

    Co-owner, The Bosses Boss

    Koi is just learning her way around the vinyl cutter and sublimation. When she’s not working on brushing up on her dog tag making skills, she’s probably outside playing with Leila or petting one of her favorite chickens.

  • Kalani

    Marketer, Big Sister

    When we need to know what’s trendy, Kalani is the go to person. When she’s not too busy playing soccer or talking to her friends, she’s entertaining her little sister. She starts high school next year and she’s looking forward to it.

  • Jonah

    Kiddo, Big Brother

    Jonah still likes helping out in the office, but he’s busy with middle school. Lately he’s been a little preoccupied with baseball to slave away in the office but that’s ok. Everyone should have an interest.

  • Leila


    Leila decided to make Koi's birthday a special one by letting us know she wanted to get to work early! Though she was born over a month early you would never know it now! She is healthy, growing and can't wait to learn how to make vinyl decals!

    Director Of Security

    Zivah is a spirited German Shepherd who ensures that all of our merchandis and trade secrets are properly guarded. She is in training as a protection K-9 and just recently celebrated her 5th birthday. On breaks, she enjoys chasing after the chuck-it.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through Etsy.com or its related sites and services.
This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that I do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.
Information I Collect
To fulfill your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, mailing address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order, for example), if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
• as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
• when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
• if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
• as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) Providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
• Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
• Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
• Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
• Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
How Long I Store Your Information
I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 7 years.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as ZOHO is Privacy Shield certified.
Your Rights
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
• Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
• Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
• Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
• Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
How to Contact Me
For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Jonathan Hebel, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at privacy [!at] hapadesigns.com .
