Is Cricut Access worth it? Or is it not necessary?
This is one of those things you need to know about Cricut! Today we’re going to give you a thorough review of Cricut Access – what’s included, how much it costs, the pros and cons, FAQS and all the rest.
Cricut Access is a subscription which gives you special access to images, fonts and projects in Cricut Design Space. Also included is Cricut.com shop discounts, free or discounted shipping, a priority member care line, and more.
Here’s what is included when you subscribe:
Unlimited access to over 400 fonts
Unlimited access to over 100,000 images
Total access to 7,000 projects
10% off physical products at Cricut.com, including machines, vinyl, accessories and more
10% off premium licensed fonts and designs, and ready to make projects from brands such as Disney
Priority member care line (50% less wait time)
You can actually get a free month of Cricut Access when you purchase a new Cricut cutting machine. This instantly gives you access to thousands of images, hundreds of fonts, and other designs and projects so that you can start creating right away!
How to Use Cricut Access
How do you know what’s included in your Cricut Access subscription and what’s not?
Well, in Cricut Design Space, all the images, fonts, ready-to-make projects and so on will be flagged with an at the top of the image if it is included. If it is not flagged, then it is not included in Cricut Access.
Access Fonts And Images
When selecting a font, you will see that all the Cricut Access fonts have the symbol next to them.
You can filter images by Cricut Access, so that you see over 100,000 images available for you to use. Just click the Access box on the left side to select it.
You can also filter the projects as well, to only show you ones included in Cricut Access. Click the filter at the top and select Cricut Access.
The answer to this question depends entirely on you! How much time do you have to craft? (Probably a lot, while in quarantine!) How passionate are you? What types of projects do you intend to make? What is your budget? How much money do you currently spend on designs and fonts? Do you have a Cricut business? Do you often make gifts for friends and family? Would a subscription actually be saving you money?
If you’ve got the time and money to dedicate to Cricut crafts then sure – a subscription is going to be well worth it for you! Especially if you’ve got a thriving Cricut business. You’ll be saving 10% off all your physical purchases too, and you’ll get great discounts on shipping (or even free shipping!). In that case, getting a subscription would save you money! You’ll have thousands of images and projects at your fingertips to let your imagination run wild – every craft fanatic’s dream!
However, if you’re just making the odd project here and there, then maybe an Access subscription isn’t for you. After all, you don’t want to be paying 10 bucks a month if you only end up making one project do you? If you only use free fonts and designs from the web anyway, then maybe you don’t need it! In that case, check out the resources down below.
