It needed to be done.

My wife's "garage":



Seriously, a guy can appreciate the technical prowess that goes into using these.

Some problems:

Cricut figured out how to cheapen their cutting mats so they don't last as long as they used to.
Cricut branded vinyl isn't the crowd favorite - seems to pull off.
Cricut updated their software and nobody likes it. It snaps objects weird, but sometimes I can figure out why it does.
Cricut's software is online only.

But the things she's making is pretty cool, and while I would factor in the equipment costs into what she's saving now, sometimes one can justify that with "I'm having fun!" Like my oscilloscope, soldering iron, transistors, etc.

Wife has the OG CriCut and middle sized shirt press.

She did experience their vinyl being cheap and gets it elsewhere now

I'll say it. It's cool. My dad and I have already devised a plan to cut out resists for circuit board etching.

Having to figure out the software - that's kind of guy related. I imagine I'm a professional graphics artist working for a multi million dollar client.

It's a manual die cutting machine. You buy die plates, and can emboss and cut papers, and i think thin leathers. She's done a few cards with it, I think.

MANLY!

She did a few shirts with them and didn't turn out too great, bought some other brand and it seems leaps better.


Looks like it's an embosser.

I think its legit. Make cool stickers, t shirts, etc. I'm hoping my wife takes off with it and starts to make some money. She needs a hobby.

Man, I had to read through this to see wtf that even was. I was thinking it was some janky little vinyl cutter at first. Looks like the kind of thing that falls squarely into "buy it unless someone is bored and wants to waste time"

Wife has been using it to knock out gifts for friends and family and do things for her Dads business like shirts and mugs to give to customers.

I saw a YouTube where some girl prints a vinyl template for etching a beer mug. It was pretty cool.
