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 at school gearing up for 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!

  • Zivah

    Director Of Security

    Zivah is a spirited German Shepherd who ensures that all of our decals and trade secrets are properly guarded. She is in training as a protection K-9 and just recently celebrated her 4th birthday. On breaks, she enjoys chasing after the chuck-it.

  • Denali

    Assistant Director Of Security

    Denali was rescued from Taiwan when she and her 2 sisters were 10 weeks old. She is currently in training as a service K9 and loves to come to work and greets all visitors. Her hobbies include stealthy counter surfing and sunbathing.
