When you purchased your Cricut, you may have been offered a 30-day free trial for Cricut Access.
Cricut Access is a subscription-based program that gives you access to images and fonts without an extra charge, provided your subscription is up-to-date. The images and fonts are only available to those with an active subscription and if you don’t pay, you’ll no longer have access. The subscription is use-only; it does not allow you to keep the images and fonts. That is a common misconception.
How much you use your machine will determine if it’s worth it for you to subscribe. If you’re a heavy user and make a lot of different items, then a monthly or annual subscription might be right for you. This is a good choice if you’re a crafter making a variety of items to sell.
Country stores and those selling folk art sometimes can’t keep up with the demand for wooden or chalkboard signs. Sayings and inspirational quotes are popular right now, and if you’re one of the lucky ones profiting from the craze, you’ll get your money’s worth from the subscription.
If you’ve decided a subscription is the way to go, there are three options:
The monthly basic plan currently costs $9.99 per month and is billed monthly. The annual plan is $7.99 per month with a one-time annual billing of $95.88. The premium plan costs $119.88 annually.
Of course, you might be able to find a coupon code online and save a few dollars, and the premium subscription will give you 50% off on images and fonts not included in the basic subscription.
Cricut Access is used with Design Space.
