Creative Fabrica is best known as a marketplace for digital files, like fonts, graphics and machine embroidery designs, created for crafters. What that means for Cricut owners is thousands of beautiful graphics and fonts and many other things we can use with our Cricut machine. It’s a game changer.
Why I Like and Use Creative Fabrica – The Video
Why Do I need Creative Fabrica?
If you are a Cricut owner and create products for yourself or others, you need Creative Fabrica. Inside their web site you will find thousands of images to use with your Cricut for HTV( heat transfer vinyl /iron on ), adhesive vinyl, and Print then cut (pnj-jpeg graphics ).
There are also thousands of fonts to choose from. How many times have you searched for hours for the right font, find it and then realize they want to charge you. Creative Fabrica has so many fonts, it’s hard to believe you can’t find the perfect font here and with the monthly subscription it won’t cost you more.
If you use designs for projects and then sell them, you need those designs to have a commercial license. Every graphic and font you download includes a commercial license.
Also included in your Creative Fabrica subscription are classes for Cricut and so many other things. I am really surprised the amount of information and tutorials Creative Fabrica has available on their web site.
How Does Creative Fabrica Work?
You have two choices. You can choose to buy fonts and graphics per item or you can choose to purchase Creative Fabrica’s subscription. When you have the subscription, everything on the site is now yours to download.
If you ever cancel, all that you have downloaded will be safe on your device you downloaded it on. You can’t lose with Creative Fabrica.
Is Creative Fabrica Free?
No. Nothing is free these days. But the cost per item isn’t high.
The cost of the Creative Fabrica subscription per month is about the same as one graphic or font file if you were to just buy it outright.
Creative Fabrica usually has sales, for instance, right now the subscription rate is $59.16 per year or less than $5 per month. The usual subscription rate is
$348 per year. What a savings!
If you decided to subscribe to Creative Fabrica right now, your downloads would be immediate. But if you aren’t happy with their service, cancel anytime.
How to use Creative Fabrica with Cricut
To use Creative Fabrica designs with your Cricut, all you need to do is download the design you like. Once it’s downloaded, find the file and you will need to extract all the files inside. So click on the file, then at the top of the page it should say “Extract All”. Click that. Now each piece of your design will be right there. At this point I usually go through the files to see what I have and how they have the pieces laid out. Once you find the pieces you want (write down the file names), then up load it to Cricut Design Space.
If you download a font, you will need to download that to your computer and then you will need to force a reload on Cricut Design Space. Look under View (top left hand corner) to find force reload. This is make your font available. Super simple.
How to Cancel a Creative Fabrica Subscription
