Which Cricut Explorer Machine To Buy

The Cricut Explore made its debut in January 2014.  Have you gotten yours yet?  Why not?  You do not know what you have been missing.




I love my Explorer.  I received mine from Santa last Christmas.  I don't know what I did with out it.  I since sold my old Cricut Expression because the Explore is all that I need.  Yes, at this time you need an internet connection but coming soon is an offline version for the iPad.  It is being beta tested right now and should be released soon.


You can score, write, print then cut and more.  It cuts material with such accuracy that I could not ever imagined cutting with my Expression.  There is no guess work in trying to figure out pressure, blade depth, speed.  The Cricut Explorer has the settings built in.  It is as simple as turning the dial to your selected material.  Even has a custom setting for other materials listed in the Cricut Design Space software.




There are 3 Cricut Explorer lines to choose from:  the original Explorer, the Explore Air and the Explorer One.  The Explorer linecomes in a many color choices including a gold one.




Now you are asking...  but what one is right for me?  Below is a chart outlining the features of each. Hope this helps you in your decision. To get yours click the link. Cricut.com
