Rated 4 out of 5 by cricut explore air Still trying to get into it but up till now it's ok made a couple of cards waiting for card etc to arrive and then I will be off Good machine love how I can work it from my iPad and wireless too love the writing element but so much to learn I will have fun 25 September 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by What an experience! I've been a Silhouette owner for about 6 years and had been looking forward to the arrival of the new Cameo 3 but I was so disappointed. I had so many problems, mainly bugs in the software that I returned it. I wasn't going to buy another cutting machine and thought I would just make do with my old trusty Silhouette SD. However, The Cricut Explore Air was demonstrated recently and I thought I would give it a go. when it arrived and I opened the box I could tell it was a quality product. The design of everything was very clean and the machine itself seems more solid.The dial to alter the pressure for cutting different materials is a dream. The blade cuts well and so far and the scoring tool is useful. However, I suppose it's because I am so used to using the silhouette program that it is really testing to use the Cricut software. I feel a bit uneasy because all the data is stored in Cloud but it means I can access it on my iPad when I am not in my craft room and design something in my armchair. there are many free designs to use and I feel that the selection is as good as Silhouette. But I am enjoying learning. I really am looking forward to becoming really proficient on it - and so far, so good. 21 September 2016

Excited!

Hi I ordered this product yesterday and Im excited to receive it! Can anyone let me know wether the tools needed to remove things from the mat come with this? I will be using this machine mainly for paper cutting and wondered wether the light grip mat would be better. My mum has the Scan N Cut and the paper sometimes becomes quite difficult to remove from the mat when its an intricate design

Answer: 
Hi xKatx
We're sure you'll enjoy the Air Gold, it's a great machine! Unfortunately you do not receive a tool to remove things from the mat, but you can use any plastic spatula-type object. regarding the mat, the one you receive with the machine should be OK to use with paper - see how you get on. I hope this helps,

Answer: 
Hi! I have only been using the new Cricut Explore for a couple of days and I have been using the blue 'light' mat, supposed to be used with thin materials like paper. I did order the green, which is for card which I usually use. However, the blue is sufficiently tacky for card and I'm not sure if I'll use the green as much. As for the tools, there aren't any included with the pack. I am going to order some as I think they will be useful. At present I'm using a pastry scraper to remove the little bits from the mat. One silver pen is included but I have bought a set of coloured pens, but I wish I had a pack of different sized black pens. I've joined the Cricut Facebook page and that is useful. There are loads of videos on youTube. Good luck - I hope you enjoy your new machine!

Answer: 
Tools are not included. My was supposed to receive the standard mat which isn't good for papercutting however I received the light mat so might be worth waiting for it to arrive before purchasing other mats just incase. Cricuts website has a list of items for each mat and blade on there website which I've found really useful. Enjoy your machine. You'll be hooked in no time

Answer: 
Depends whether you ordered the machine on its own or the package with the tools. I think the tools are really useful. There's no need to order the tools with the trimmer if you've already got a paper trimmer - you can get just the tools on their own a lot cheaper.

I don't know which machine to buy, a Silhouette Cameo 2 or this Cricut Explore Air Gold.

Do they do the same thing and what are the unique features of both?

Answer: 
I was looking forward to the new Cameo 3 but I had nothing but problems and couldn't produce one finished item, although I have been using a Cameo SD for about 6 years. After returning it I decided to try the Cricut Explore Air and although I've only had it for a few days, i am really enjoying it. it is well designed and seems more solid. I don't think I'll return this. I'm finding the software a challenge but I'm sure I shall soon master it soon, after all, I was sucessul with the Silhouette program and I look forward to exploring its capabilities. There are loads of informative videos on youTube which are a help. I would recommend the Cricut Explore Air - definitely!

Answers

Answer: 
Hi spotty
Thanks for your question. Cricut has advised the following:
Our products and offerings are designed for personal use. The Angel policy is an additional benefit designed for those who wish to sell their creations:http://us.cricut.com/home/legal/angel-policy. We believe the Angel Policy is the most generous policy in our industry. The Angel Policy authorizes you to sell up to 10,000 completed projects annually (i.e., cards, scrapbook pages, finished cakes), using cuts made with Provo Craft products. It does not, however, authorize you to produce and sell individual, unassembled cuts using Provo Craft products (i.e., mass producing individually-cut letters or shapes to re-sell) nor to produce and sell items that incorporate licensed content.

We hope this helps
