What Is a Cricut Machine and What Does It Do?

A Cricut machine is a cutting tool—but that is a lot more than it might sound like. You can create anything from kiss cut sticker sheets to greeting cards, gift tags, T-shirts, and more. Depending on your machine and accessories, your Cricut can draw, cut, and score a variety of materials, including various papers, vinyl, cardstock—some units can even work with leather and thin wood.

Create beautiful vinyl decals or create a beautiful, custom cake topper with your Cricut. There are so many possibilities with this versatile and easy-to-use tool. 

It's important to note, however, that the Cricut is about cutting—not printing. So, for example, if you're interested in making something like bullet journal stickers, you'd need to print them out first. Then, let your Cricut take over to cut them for you. Your Cricut machine can make beautifully detailed cuts easier than ever. 

It's an amazing tool for crafters, DIY fans, and independent artists who are looking to create and sell their own handmade merchandise.

What Is a Cricut Font?

Cricut fonts are the fonts included in Cricut Design Space—a free tool that is used to prepare and design your work for use with your Cricut machine. Your Cricut comes with a bunch of Cricut Design Space fonts included, such as Cricut Sans, a versatile sans serif font. Cricut writing fonts and Cricut fonts with layers have additional functionality. For example, check out some of the double layer font Cricut options next time you're in Design Space, under Font Style.

Note that not all Cricut fonts are free. Many of them require a subscription to Cricut Access, a premium program that gives you access to a library of fonts and graphics. It's got some pretty nice offerings, too. It's got some of the best writing fonts for Cricut, if you want the machine to draw solid lines. Keep in mind, however, that you can often mimic the solid writing of some of the best writing fonts for Cricut by choosing a thin font. 

However, your System Fonts can also work as Cricut fonts—fun and functional additions to your Cricut Design Space. This means that, in addition to the Cricut-specific fonts included with Design Space, you can also use other fonts installed on your computer. It's easy to add fonts to Cricut too.

Download Unlimited Premium Fonts (For Commercial Use!)

I get it—everyone loves free content. However, if you're a power user or you intend to create work that you want to sell, free content can be a real bust. Think about it for a moment: just because something is free does not always mean it's free of copyright or licensing concerns. 

It takes a lot of time and effort to find the perfect free font too. There might be a free price tag, but your time is valuable too. All that searching and the limited options can take a lot of the fun out of the design process.
