Great article on how to create files in Inkscape and then cut in SCAL

For those of you who want to be able to cut all of the fonts you own as well as SVG files others & perhaps yourself have created, this is something you need to read. Click on the title for a very informative post--and a very informative site all together.

Inkscape is free, SCAL is usually around $70.

Click HERE to learn more about & download Inkscape.

Click HERE to learn more about & purchase SCAL. Note: the makers of SCAL are now allowing other retailers to sell their product. You may want to Google it to see if you can find a better price.

Provo Craft isn't fond of SCAL (made by Craft Edge) because they believe it reduces the number of font cartridges they sell. Thus, in some of their Design Studio updates they put code in that disables SCAL. Thus it is hard for people like me who want to use both. Right now the makers of SCAL have overcome the last block and you can use SCAL even if you have Design Studio updated.

In order to use SCAL, you do have to download the trial version of Cricut Design Studio. You can do that HERE. I had problems bringing that site up, but I assume that it was just my computer. Would someone let me know if they have trouble bringing it up as well?

Click HERE to learn how to download fonts if you are in to SCAL, or if you just want more fonts on your computer.

  1. Thanks for posting this! I'm newer to the Cricut world and this helped me understand how the two work together!

That information has been moved to the Imagine That Plus site so that this site will load faster (that one doesn't have as much, and everything is pretty much in posts & not at the bottom of every page so it loads at a pretty good rate).
