    I¡¯ve been trying to get into the T-Shirt biz for some time now and I decided to stop putting it off and go for it. This….machine….is AMAZING! You can cut vinyl, you can cut paper, you can cut iron on, card stock, bonded fabric, poster board…if you can dream it; you can make it! Worried about it being complicated? Stop! It¡¯s not. It¡¯s so easy you¡¯ll be making whatever your heart desires the day this gets delivered to you. I did my research on machines and I was sold on this one. I am impressed beyond words on how easy and versatile this machine is.

    I LOVE this machine and have absolutely no regrets. I’ve made cards, banners, a shirt with iron on vinyl, wall art… The possibilities are truly endless! The machine cuts so quickly and precisely–it’s a work of art just watching it in action. I have been wanting a Cricut for YEARS and I am SO HAPPY I finally bought it.

    I am obsessed with this machine! When I first received it, I was completely overwhelmed. I didn’t even take it out of the box for a while. Then I slowly did research on YouTube, Facebook beginner cricut boards, ect. and learned how to make projects. The machine is more than paying for itself just from me making things for friends and family. It’s helped to supplement our small income. Don’t be overwhelmed when you receive it! There is so much great advice on the “cricut newbies” board on Facebook. They are quick to help and there are lots of files available too. Have fun crafting!

    So far so good. Set up was very very easy. Watched a few YouTube videos to see what I needed to buy/ how to get started. Very easy to use machine and the app for it is great. I have made a few projects so far and love it! Occasionally the vinyl needs to be weeded on my own, but that is not due to the machine not cutting, it is due to me choosing a very skinny font. When beginning I would suggest bolding a word when you try it out just to get the hang of it using a thicker piece of work. Once you get it then move on to skinny fonts. Love this machine !

    I am in love with this machine. I am making all of the flowers out of paper for my wedding. I did alot of research about die cutting machines trying to find the right one to help me out. I chose this machine based on reviews and am so please. It is SO easy to use. Setup instructions are simple clear and easy to understand. Design space download and set up were also incredibly easy to navigate. The machine itself came in clean working condition. Shipping was very fast. All around great buy! All my wedding flowers look AMAZING!

    My wife loves this thing and for that reason so did I. Seeing the pure joy in her eyes was rivaled only by things like our wedding day and our children’s births. As time has gone by though I’m beginning to suspect that she loves it more than she loves me. She spends all her time with it and when she’s not using it she’s talking about it. She’s taken to snuggling it in bed and when I came home from work the other day it was sitting in my chair at the dinner table. My children call it Daddy. I was getting tired of it and tried to confront it but my dog started snarling at me. It’s too late for me but you’ve been warned: this machine is a homewrecker.

    This machine is AWESOME! The software to use this machine was easily downloaded on the cricut website! I¡¯ll admit, it¡¯s a bit of a learning curve but YouTube has tutorials for everything! So far I¡¯ve made 3 cards and a label for our brush (affectionately called The Egg Brush because it is shaped sort of like an egg). Keep in mind before purchasing that there will be more you¡¯ll need to get such as weeding tools, transfer paper, a standard mat and vinyl. All in all including machine I think I¡¯ve spend close to $300-$320. To me this investment is worth it! It¡¯s fun and has many different uses.

    Bought this Cricut machine to make t-shirts and its quickly become a favorite for my kids who Love making their own decals. We¡¯ve made shirts and sticker using both the web-app as well as the iPad app and it¡¯s such an easy process even my kids have done it themselves. For Spring Break we took the family to Disneyland and had planned to wear matching shirts that I designed. Initially I received quotes from online shirt makers and the cost of that one project was easily higher than the cost of a cricut machine + materials. So we decided to make them ourselves. The shirts came out amazing and even after a few washes they still look brand new.

    This machine is wonderful and i have used it for so many things. The machine itself is very easy to get the hang of, I would say the most changeling part is learning to use the cricut design space and working with different vinyls but after every project it gets easier and easier. You WILL waste materials when fist starting out if you are new to this like i was so don’t buy the most expensive materials at first. and btw you DO NOT have to pay for design space, there are tons of free fonts and images on the internet and even in design space.

    Love is a strong word… but I love my Cricut! At first when I bought this machine, I thought, I’m really not all that crafty and I probably won’t ever use this machine and it’ll collect dust just like all the big dollar items I’ve purchased over the years BUT little did I know that I’d start cutting vinyl and end up making a business out of it!!! I now have a steady flow of customers that buy from me on Etsy and eBay daily! I’m definitely more creative than I thought I was and I actually love sitting down to design decals and cut them out with my Cricut Explorer Air 2! Even though I’ve only mentioned vinyl, this machine does SO SO SO much more. I believe it cuts 100 different types of materials including vinyl but I’ve had so much fun cutting vinyl decals that I’ve yet to explore any of the other projects that you can make with this little work horse!

    I love this little thing. I have tried to make pajamas for my kids and fail miserably at the top. With this, I just have to see the pants and buy a t-shirt that I can customize with the heat transfer vinyl. I loaded up on some cricut branded materials. They aren¡¯t bad – but you can get cheaper that works just as well. My wife is really excited to use this for PTO/room parent projects for the kids classrooms and teachers. I like that you can add markers and write/draw just about anything. We made the teachers some cards and they came out really nice. The materials can get expensive, so make sure you nest your cuttings well and save scraps. Still learning all of the things I can do with this. I¡¯m looking forward to cutting out stencils that I can use to paint wood projects I have planned. This thing is incredibly versatile and I¡¯m sure I¡¯ll still be coming up with new uses for it years from now.
