This year I have been doing a ton of tutorials all about the Cricut Explore machine. I am hoping I have answered most of your questions about the machine, how it works, and the different projects you can make with it. It is truly one of my most favorite crafting tools. I use it weekly on many projects that you can see both here on the blog, for my kids, and around my house.

  1. Hi Laura – what is the deal with the font cartridges for the Cricut? Is there a preloaded inventory of fonts that you can access with the software or are they all an additional cost? Seriously considering purchasing a machine, but want to figure out my all in costs. Thank you!

    • Kelly,
      With Cricut Design Space you no longer need physical cartridges for your machine. You can use any of the fonts you have on your computer. Because of this, you technically would never need to pay for a font, if you have free ones on your computer you are using. If you have a Cricut Access subscription there are a ton of fonts that are included with that, including a fonts only plan. There are also some Cricut fonts that are included with the software. Here is a helpful article about Cricut Access: Cricut Access Membership Plans. You can also sign up for a Cricut account before you buy your machine to try out the Design Space software. If you decide to buy, right now (through 10/31/17) you can get 10% off Air 2 or Air machine (includes bundles) + free shipping with code: OCTOBAIR at checkout.

      Please let me know if you have any more questions!
      xo,
      Laura
