Today I wanted to share information about the SUBSCRIPTION PLANS for the new Cricut Explore. First, lets clear up a couple of things people seem confused about.
The Cricut Explore is the name of the new Cricut die cut machine.The internet based application you use with your computer and Cricut Explore die cut machine is called Cricut Design Space. This is the software you log in to on the internet using the web address @ www.cricut.com/design.
Cricut Design Space is FREE to use. No charge for using it at all. Isn’t that nice ?Whether you have a Cricut Explore or even if you don’t own one yet, you can use your current Cricut.com account log in info (or create an account if you don’t) and play around in Cricut Design Space, creating projects and saving them. Click HERE to log in or create an account to check out Cricut Design Space.
But wait, why is Cricut trying to have you sign up and pay for a SUBSCRIPTION to Cricut Design Space if using the software is free ?
The SUBSCRIPTION PLANS are access to the CRICUT IMAGE LIBRARY …over 25,000 single images, and image sets (cartridges or digital sets) you can use in Cricut Design Space to make your projects.
…but what images are included in the CRICUT IMAGE LIBRARY? Lucky for us, Cricut has made a handy LIST OF CRICUT LIBRARY IMAGES so you can know what is included in the subscription…see the entire list HERE.
- New images will be added to the library as they are released so the list will grow !
- Not included are LICENSED (like Disney, Hello Kitty, etc), RETIRED ( ) and ENTITLED (part of past Cricut machine bundles)
There are two SUBSCRIPTION PLAN OPTIONS:
MONTHLY for $9.99/month which is option that you can cancel any time**
YEARLY for $99.99 which is a better value, making it only $8.25 a month **
IMPORTANT TO MENTION: with a subscription you are basically “renting” the images to use during your subscription period BUT you do not own them at the end of the subscription.
**Access to purchase SUBSCRIPTION PLANS will be available soon at Cricut.com
