I’ve been wanting to give you more on the Cricut Imagine – and I just am now getting around to sharing some more info.
Lets look at some of the Promo Pics from Provo Craft and talk a little bit about the goodies
The printer/cutting machine in one
Its truly amazing and you can do a TON of great things with it!
The top ldc screen and much of the same interface as the Cricut Gypsy, but more to it. There is also a port for both the Original Cricut Cartridges and the new Imagine Cartridges that will contain color pallets and patterns to print fantastic colors right onto your cuts. Talk about customization!!! You’re going to love it!
The ink cartridges are made with the great quality of HP Inks, but the ink cartridges are specific for this machine….not just any HP cart will work…. Good news is that the price point on these ink cartridges are no more than standard HP Ink Cartridges….
The Cutting Mats I’m thrilled to say, are really cool. They have redesigned the cutting mats with a new kind of adhesive and also have changed the plastic that the mat is made from for better wear and tear. The only thing to note is – you can’t use your old Cutting Mats with the new Imagine Machine, but you can use the new cutting mats in your old Cricut Machines.
Here is a look at one of the Imagine Cartridges – and from what I understand the one that is going to be coming with the Imagine Cricut Machine. I do not have ALL the info on this…but this is what I wanted to share. The initial designs are beautiful and Provo Craft has done much work with the artists from Cosmo Cricket for their first set of designs.
Few other things to mention… The Imagine will work with ALL your current cartridge library. The Imagine Machine will also work with your Gypsy and you will be able to done TONS more with your Gypsy in the VERY near future…including that awesome Photo App I talked to you all a little bit about. The new Imagine Cricut Cartridges will only work with the Imagine Cricut Machine…this is because they contain color palettes and patterns that your original Cricut will not be able to do anything with. Also to mention, from the understandings, you will be able to link your new Imagine Cartridges to your Gypsy for even further design options, but once again will have to cut/print with the Imagine for those cartridges.
Ok so thats what I’ve got to give you for now – the Cricut Imagine Premiers on HSN on September 14th and as soon as my machine is in hand I will be sharing it with you further
Feel free to comment with questions – though I can’t promise I will have any answers Just wanted to share what I could and more to come…..
