What is Print and Cut

A Cricut machine is essentially made to cut out designs from materials. Sometimes, however, you need to cut out printed designs. This is referred to as print and cut. You can not do it with your Cricut machine alone but need a printer to first print your design on the sticker.

We recommend using your Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker with an inkjet printer. Make sure you first print then cut and never the reverse.

What is the best Cricut Machine for Stickers?

When it comes to printing and cutting, the size of the machine is very important. This size requirement automatically disqualified the Cricut Joy due to its very small size.

The Cricut Maker and Cricut Maker 3 are good for print and cutting. However, we recommend the more affordable Cricut Explore 2.
