View Full Version : New- machine suggestions? like/dislike
06-30-2007, 04:57 AM
I'm Carol and new to this forum. I have the first Cricut machine and love it except its obvious limitations ($ fonts etc, no usb). My question is what machines do you like and why. What don't you like about it. Money is not unlimited and it is only for hobby use (for now lol) so I am asking for suggestions or warnings...I do like that the new Cricut Expressions machines does cut 12x12 though so if its USB was working, I'd still consider it since I have invested so much in cartridges. I am leaning towards the WB...any suggestions? Thanks

I have loved my wishblade - I would never ever even thought about giving it up - it has been the best machine!!!
Then I became a designer (so I want to offer my files in all the formats) and I have started my own business cutting titles for local stores - so I have just paid my deposit on the KNK..... only because now it is my job - not just my hobby.
I will be selling my wishblade soon.... with huge huge tears as I love it soo much!!!
If you are just using it as a hobby machine - you can not go wrong with the wishblade!!!!
Thats my 2cents worth!!!

Welcome Carol! I suggest you go here http://www.paperthreads.com/forum/showthread.php?t=2014 and look at the comparison chart. I might choose one machine because it suits my needs while another might not like the machine I choose because it doesn't suit their needs. You know what you want and need! I bought the Wishblade originally and have loved it! If I had to do it over again, i would probably have gone with a Craft Robo. It is the same machine, but it allows you to cut directly from Illustrator. Wishblade no longer has that capacity. But that might not be an issue to you. KWIM? I ordered a KNK that should arrive mid July. I ordered it because of it's ability to do more . . . cut chipboard, greater pressures, etc. I plan to keep the Wishblade as I love it too! I'll probably use both! So I suggest you go to the chart and decided which machine is best for you!
Good luck and hope you find that perfect fit!
