I'm seeing a lot of excitement coming in from the Cricut groups on my Facebook feed. Cricut has released their Print-then-Cut feature(PtC) for the Cricut Explore! The Silhouette's Print-and-Cut (PnC) is my favorite thing to do with paper and I am happy that the Cricut fans can now enjoy it too. I have been playing with the Cricut Design Space for the last few months and while personally, I still prefer using Silhouette Studio (version 2.8.16d! I'm still not liking v3.1.417), I am curious how the Cricut's PtC compares to Silhouette's PnC.
Here's a video from Cricut that explains how their Print-then-Cut works:
If you have already tried out the Cricut's Print-then-Cut, do share what you think of it. You can post in the comments below or on my Facebook page.
My Cricut Explore has been sitting on the floor since early June. Despite my increasing frustrations with Silhouette America (deteriorating customer service and lousy software upgrades), I have been happy with my Cameo machine and what I have been able to make with it. There simply was not a good reason to try out the Cricut Explore.
Perhaps the time has finally come to give it a shot.
