I have found the Expression with two cartridges for $219. That doesn't include shipping and the cartridges that come with it are Accent Essentials and Plantin Schoolbook. It seems like a good price, but I wanted to check with the experts. I want one so bad!!!
Also, I am getting the Cricut more for title than anything, so what would be the best cartridges to get?
I'm new around here but that price for the expression seems great!!! I just told my DH who was also impressed with the price since he bought me the Cricut Personal Cutter (6x12) for close to that price!
Cartridges alone range from $30 to $90 each!
I wonder if he'd let me get the Expression as well....
I am not sure about the pricing, as mine was a gift from my MIL. But, I do have the one that came with Plantin and Home Decor. I'd much rather have Accent Essentials than Home Decor!
I would say that it is worth $219 given all that it can do. A di-cut that does the same kind of cuts from Stampin-Up would be about $150, and then $20-50 for each template. The expression is much more versatile than a manual di-cut, and more economic. I use a lot of embellishments on my pages, and so even if I had bought the machine myself, I am sure in the long run I will save money (as long as I am sensible about what accessories and cartridges I buy)
But as far as will you find it cheaper elsewhere, I have no idea.
The Plantin Schoolbook has lettering that is good for titles. It is nothing fancy, but you can mix it up with italics and a few other variations they have on it. Most of the font cartridges I've seen are $30. I think it just depends on what style of font you will use a lot. I am working on two books right now- Jonah's baby book and my wedding album. So, I would get the most use out of a playful almost childish font, and another more elegant font, at the moment.
