What is Cricut Access and Do I Really Need It?

One of the most common questions I get asked is about Cricut Access. It can be a bit confusing, so today I am going to go over all of the options for Cricut Access and help you decide if you even need it at all.

Many years ago all of the Cricut Machines used cartridges. You had to buy a new one (usually about $30-$50) for each image set you wanted. One of the common frustrations was spending all that money when you may have only really wanted a handful of the images.

Fast forward to today. All of the Cricut Machines now use Design Space instead of cartridges. Besides being able to manipulate the images, one of the best features is that you can purchase images one at a time as you need them.
