The Cricut IMAGINE Announced!

Provo Craft officially announced the new Cricut Imagine…even though we already had a good idea what they were going to say, right? Here’s where I posted about it earlier.

  1. Look’s like it would be neat to use. But the price is a bit scarey for me. I would really have to try this for a few day’s before I would even concider adding it for my personel use.

  2. I am quite content with my Cricut Expression and Design Studio. I have to admit being concerned that Provo Craft might be biting off more than they can chew.

  3. I thought I wanted it until I saw the price. Guess I will just have to be satisfied with what I have until the price comes down!

  4. I think it sounds great. Of course I LOVE technology and having options. “IF” I could afford it I would buy one, but since I can’t afford it I’ll just have to dream.

  5. I wonder how much the ink catridges will be…and how often they’ll have to be replaces…and how expensive the cricut imagine art carts will be…lots of extra costs with this one

  6. Looks cool but awful pricey! Plus if the ink costs are anything like printer ink, this could be quite an expensive venture!

  7. I can’t wait to check it out at CHA. It says you “can add patterns and colors when you pair original carts with the new patterns and colors carts.” So not only is it the initial investment of $600…but you also have to buy the new carts before you can do anything with it other than cut the images out like you would with an Expression. If I had a money tree (or a super cool blog like Super Joy), I might consider buying this. But I’m just fine working with all my gadgets and markers to get some “color and texture.”

  8. 600 buckeroonies!?! Not happening, I’m afraid. Provo prices everything high, even their shipping. lol!

  9. $600 plus the price of HP ink is way too much. I’d rather spend money on Carts, since I don’t have a lot of them.

  10. I’m with everyone on this one… It sounds awesome, but in all practicality, I’m pretty sure I will never be able to afford this. Ink, carts, blades, mats, paper, and machine are just way to expensive. I can barely keep up with the expression carts and accessories.

  11. When I found out that this was going to be coming out I told my husband about it and how much it was and he said that this sounded great…but that I also was not getting one…price is just too high…although he just got a new 50″ TV, so that might be leverage 😉

    1. LOL CroppinMomma! Yep the Imagine definitely balances out the TV! 😉 Tell him you can make him signs that point to the last place the remote control was spotted. LOL! I know we’re usually on the hunt for it here!

  12. I realize that Provo Craft is a business. I’m completely new to crafting. However, I don’t fully understand why Provo Craft doesn’t work on or design enhancements for existing products.
    I have a feeling that Provo Craft will come out with a brand new Cuttlebug that accepts wider paper or embosses large projects.
    Then, I think they will release an Imagine that accepts 12 x 24 paper. (I’m not sure why they didn’t create this one as such in the first place.)
    I don’t know a lot of people who have space, or the money, for all of these machines.

  13. Not sure if I will be getting one of those right now. Will have to think long and hard about it. Just sooooooo pricey !!!!!!!!

  14. Looks like an awesome machine and would be great if I owned a store. But for home the price is too high right now for a “toy”. If you can use it to MAKE money then mmmaybe. :~)

  15. I am excited about this too! The ink cartridges will be a factor to think about for sure! The base price seems pricey, but it is and all in one print, cut, texture diecut
    machine! Would like to see if all of the bugs are worked out before I’ll buy!!!!

  16. It looks cool but since I can’t import a jpeg or other file format … I may have to pass. I want to print and cut my graphics not theirs. I would like to be able to stamp an image, scan it in, place a cut line and print and cut it. I was on board to buy until I saw the videos. I stick with my wishblade for print and cuts. Why couldn’t they just have make this an open source software so we could use our own artwork?

  17. Looks really great, BUT some of us have trouble just buying the carts we think we need.

  18. Geez, they goes another hoby that is getting expensive. My Sewing/Embroidery machine was $2500 in 2002 and my hubby literally Sh@# when we purchased that. So, it is very doubtful I will be getting one of these anytime soon. At least, this will soften the blow for other things like new cartridge, accessories, and other stuff for us. 🙂

  19. I’ve never been first in line for any new technology, but who knows, I may enjoy it down the road. I’d like a larger Cuttlebug, if someone wants to push that idea. Thanks for the head’s up!

  20. Thanks for the info Joy! Please continue to keep us informed, especially if you, by chance, get to demo this new machine! Would LOVE to hear your opinions on it, since you are my “trusted Cricut advisor.” LOL!

  21. This is not enticing me at all at the moment, I feel it will take the love of paper crafting away by doing it all for me but I will wait and see once people start to use it.
