This is probably the most popular question we get in our inboxes. Understandably, our customers want to know which of the machines are best for their needs. The graphic below shows the differences among the three machines:
If you're a newbie in the crafting world, which machine is best for you?
With Cricut, there's no such thing as a beginner's machine. All three machines use Design Space - the Cricut companion app that lets you design and cut with your Cricut machines.
If you have space constraints, the Cricut Joy would be the perfect machine for you. The Cricut Joy is obviously a lot smaller compared to the other two machines. It's compact and portable - perfect for your small space. You can use it to create decals, cake toppers, personalized shirts and cards.
If you have the space and want to create decals, cake toppers, greeting cards, or stickers, the Cricut Explore 2 is a powerful machine that can do all those projects mentioned.
If you want to level your crafts up a bit with debossing and engraving, or want to work with materials like chipboard, wood, fabric - then the Cricut Maker it is!
