Create a print, then go on.
You may remove extraneous portions of your work by converting images, typefaces, and writing styles into the Write line type.
After printing these, you can either manually cut them out or remove them with a punch. You may punch or cut them out whether you print them with or without a background form.
If you have a Cricut, you are undoubtedly well aware of the many customizing options it offers. The Cricut Print Then Cut cartridge is my go-to.
It may be used to cut custom images made in software other than Design Space. This article provides instructions for using a Cricut machine to print and cut graphics.
Along with a thorough explanation of the Cricut Print Then Cut feature, a thorough explanation of the best printer for Cricut is also provided.

The lesson that follows will teach you all you need to know about this subject, and at the bottom of this page, you can download a free diagram to use while you study.
Cricut Print-and-Cut Materials
- 5 × 11 sheets of white cardstock paper
- Explore Air-2 Cricut
- A grip-friendly standard Cricut cutting mat (Use cardstock rather than computer paper if you are using a fresh mat, or get it a bit filthy first. Use a light-grip cutting mat for cutting computer paper or anything lighter than cardstock.)
- Practice guide for using Christmas trees (may be found in my collection of FREE resources Learn more at the bottom of this article.)
TIPS Before You Start
- Only white or extremely light-colored paper should be used with the Cricut’s Print Then Cut function.
- Your picture will need to be cropped down to suit the 9.25 by 6.75-inch cut portion.
- Make sure your printer is calibrated to get clean cuts along all the lines.
- If you need further support with your Cricut, check out this website.
- Cricut Design Space for Desktop is used to complete this course.
- The app may not work the same on tablets.
Print the font styles on a patterned background
- Kindly fill out the form you want to utilize for your project.
- Modify the dimensions and form as required.
- Select a writing-style font, write some text on the canvas, and then give it a color.
- Text should be positioned on top of the project form in the proper sequence.
- Be careful to keep the text entirely inside the form to prevent clipping.
- In the Layers box, click Flatten after selecting All.
- Use your home printer to print and cut out your picture by clicking the Make It button.
Print the font styles on without a patterned background
- Add text to the canvas, switch the font to a writing style, and then decide on a color for the text.
- Your project’s text should be formatted according to the guidelines. The relative positioning of text is preserved by attachment.
- From Write on the Line, go to Print. The choice of hue is up to you. Press Create.
- Decide how many project copies you want, then click Continue. At this time, printing is not feasible without the cut sensor marking.
- Select your printer from the list by selecting Send to Printer after determining the number of copies to print, and then click Print.
- Click Cancel to exit without cutting the printed page.
You are now done!
If your cut lines aren’t quite straight, calibrate your printer to the Cricut.
Before selecting SEND TO PRINTER, choose ADD BLEED from the Printer Options panel to print with the required margins.
But keep in mind that even the best sublimation printer can only print on fabrics and not on other materials.
My favorite feature of the Cricut is the Print Then Cut option in particular. Despite its flaws and size limitations, the Cricut has changed how I use it.
It is one of the elements I use the most often in tasks like paper crafts and pastimes like custom t-shirt screen printing.
