Hey there! It’s Jess from Everyday Party Magazine. I recently joined the Cricut Maker Facebook Group (you can join it here) as a co-administrator…and I am seeing just how many folks don’t have Cricut Access and aren’t even sure of what the benefits of having it are! Say what? I have had Cricut Access for several years now, and I cannot imagine not having it!
If you have a Cricut, you should have a Design Space account. This is free to set up and use, even without Cricut Access. You can upload your own fonts, images, and SVGs. You can even purchase cut files and fonts to use as needed for your projects. Images and fonts begin at just a couple dollars. You can also purchase digital cartridges. Cartridges have several cut files included. Finally, you can purchase fonts as needed as well.
However, Cricut Access has three subscription tiers.
The next tier is the Cricut Access - Standard. This subscription allows users access to the 350+ fonts, as well as 30,000+ images and cut files. Additionally, this subscription offers a 10% discount on images and fonts not included in the subscription. It also offers a 10% discount on product purchases, exclusions apply.
This subscription can also be billed monthly or annually. The monthly plan is just $9.99 (and can be canceled at any time), and the annual subscription is $95.88. Annual subscriptions save $24 on this plan!
The final tier (and best overall value) is Cricut Access - Premium. The Premium subscription is just that, premium! It includes all the fonts, all the images, but, it also offers a half off discount on images and text not included in the subscription. (Exclusions apply) This subscription also offers 10% off your purchase of product purchases (Exclusions apply).
While this subscription level has the most access and is the best overall deal, you can only purchase this subscription annually for just under $120.
All levels of Cricut Access allow you to upload your own designs and images. And Cricut Access automatically includes all of the fonts on your computer.
* 50% off does not include images, fonts, or cartridges from Walt Disney Company® (Disney Consumer Products, Inc.), Sesame Workshop™, Sanrio Hello Kitty®, Boys Scouts of America®, Anna Griffin®, Lia Griffith™, Simplicity®, and Riley Blake Designs licensors. Discount cannot be combined with other discounts, including Cricut Circle, promotions, and promotion codes and cannot be used for in-app purchases. Cricut reserves the right to add or remove content and to otherwise modify this offer at any time in the sole discretion of Cricut.
