You can change the style of your text to regular, bold, italic, bold italic, or writing style.
Changing The Font Size
You can change the font size. Type in a number, or click the arrows up or down, to increase or decrease the size of your text.
Changing The Letter Spacing
You can change the letter spacing of your text. Click the arrows up or down to increase or decreasing the space between the letters.
Changing The Line Spacing
You can change the line spacing. Click the arrows up or down to increase or decrease the spacing between lines of text.
Changing The Text Alignment
You can change the alignment of your text. You can align left, center it, or align right.
You can curve your text. Drag the button to the right or left to curve your text upwards or downwards. The further left or right you go, the more dramatic the curve. See our full tutorial on how to curve text in Cricut Design Space.
Ungrouping Text To Letters
Click ‘advanced’ and ‘ungroup to letters’ to separate the letters in the text. Now you can move each letter around individually and further customize your text.
Ungrouping Text To Lines
Click ‘advanced’ and ‘ungroup to lines’ to be able to manipulate a single line of text. Now you can arrange multiple lines of text exactly how you’d like.
Ungrouping Text To Layers
If you are using a multi-layered font, you can click ‘advanced’ and ‘ungroup to layers’ to deal with the layers separately. After ungrouping to layers you can also further ungroup to letters.
Changing The Linetype
Change the linetype to select whether you want your Cricut to cut or draw your text.
Changing Pen Type & Color
After selecting ‘draw’ as your linetype, you can click the box next to it and choose your pen type and color. If you select ‘cut’ as your linetype, you can choose your material color.
Color & Pattern Fill
If you would like to print and cut your text, choose ‘cut’ for linetype, and ‘print’ for fill. Click the box next to it to choose a color or pattern to fill in your text.
You will print this out with your printer, and then put that printed page into your Cricut for it to cut out around the text.
Use the attach feature in Design Space to attach text and shapes together. With this feature you can draw text onto another shape, or you can cut text out of another shape.
In the screenshot below I have made a birthday card.
I want the word ‘birthday’ to be drawn onto the banner with a pen, so I have attached those two elements together. I also want the letters to be cut out of the balloons, so I have attached each letter to a balloon. Now my Cricut knows exactly what I want it to do!
Using Flatten With Text
You can change multi-layered text fonts into a single-layered image with the flatten tool.
Select all and click ‘flatten’. Now you can use your text for print-and-cut. Print out the image with your printer, and then place the printed page into your Cricut cutting machine, and it will cut out the letters.
