Draft versus Best Quality Printing on the Cricut Imagine Machine



Above is a photo showing the difference between the draft and best quality settings on the Cricut Imagine machine using Georgia Pacific white cardstock from Walmart. Best to print on best quality setting, don't you think? But good to have the option of draft so you could do some test cuts.

  2. I usually do a draft print when printing out color coupons so I don't use up too much ink! Thanks for all the info you've been posting. By the time I get my Imagine, I will know how to operate it BLINDFOLDED!

  5. question here...since the best is better than draft..it would use the ink faster..would it make sense to just use blackout line on color cs??? is that possible??

  8. Looks like with the right image the Draft option would be great for a Shabby Chic style. It's already a bit muted to begin with and could be ready to add to a distressed card.

  9. Thank you for showing that. Now my next question is are the number of pages that they have predicted per ink cart for best or draft?

  12. You can tell the difference, just depends on what you are using it for and how much ink you want to save. Thanks for the sharing, now when I get that machine I said I wouldn't get I'll know how to use it.

  13. Hhmm. Not that I am getting an Imagine ; ) BUT I think the draft version would come in handy for embellishing. Stickles and the glaze pens would stand out better or at least have a chance of enhancing the image more.
    THX for showing us the dif.

  14. Just a difference in how much ink you want to use, and if you wanted a muted tone versus true color.

  15. Good to know the difference - thanks for posting. I guess if you wanted a "watermark" effect you could try the draft quality. :)

  18. Wow! That's quite a difference!!! Do they have anything in-between? (like on a printer, everday fast printing is better quality than draft, but not as good as presentation)
