Cricut Explore Air 2

I remember when I first heard about Cricut, cartridges were required. I really liked what it could do, but I wasn’t so crazy about having to find and buy cartridges for images I needed. Fast forward to the Cricut Explore Air 2 that I use all the time. A lot of people still ask, “Will I be required to use cartridges with the Cricut?” And the answer is no!  (But if you still have some cartridges from older models, you can link them to your Design Space and still use them. There is a little slot on the Cricut Explore Air 2 where you can insert the cartridge. see the picture below.)

Instead of cartridges, Cricut now offers Cricut Access.  There are three different plans available. You can click on any of the plans below to purchase.
