Finally Print then Cut is available in larger print sizes. It is only in Beta version right now, which means they are still getting the bugs out, but some of us can get it to play with.
To find out if you have the Beta version of the new Print then Cut, on your Cricut Design Space, click on the 3 lines in the top left hand corner, then click Settings and click the Beta box…if you have it. From there you can calibrate your machine, just for good measure, and then you are ready to try out the new Print then Cut feature on Cricut design space. Check out my video on how to use this few feature below.

Print then Cut New Sizes
Here are the new sizes – both paper sizes and print sizes.
As you can see, there are changes from the old 9.25″ x 6.75″ print then cut size. So let’s learn how to make these new sizes. It took me a minute to figure it out. Once again, all of this info is in the video above if you would rather watch than read.
Print and Cut Instructions
Now that you have already found out if you can use the Beta version and have calibrated, lets get started.
First add an image on your Cricut Design Space Canvas to play with and make sure it is flattened. The flatten feature is on the bottom right hand side. Click your image, then click “flatten”. Now it is ready to print.
Drag the image large enough that you will see a red exclamation icon in the layers panel for your image.
As you can see, if you click on the red icon, it tells you what size it is fitting it to (Letter) and the size limit for the letter paper size. If this is the size you want, click “Auto resize” and you are done.
If you want it larger or smaller, click “Change Page Size”. The repeat the process of enlarging till you see the error message again. Look to see that it changed the paper size and if it did, click Auto Resize. If it didn’t change the paper size (Letter, Legal, etc), do the process over again.
You can also change the size when you click through. Once you see it on the cutting mat, you might decide you want it bigger. On the left hand side click on the sizes. It will only size up from here, not down.
You are now ready to print then cut your image. Continue as you would with any Print then Cut project.
