Here's a link to all the detailed info you need to know about the Cricut Explore HERE (scroll to see the white sheets) and HERE.
Here's the basics:
1) Cricut Explore is a new die cutting machine that can cut materials up to 1/8" thick, including leather, chipboard, felt, vellum, copy paper and more (55+ materials). It also has scoring (with an additional score tool you must purchase) and writing capabilities (comes with pen).
2) To use the Cricut Explore, you will need to use the free, online based Design Space software. It only works with this software. It only works if you are connected to the internet.
3) Any cartridges you have linked or digital cartridges you have in the Cricut Craft Room will automatically be available in Design Space. There is a slot in the machine for you to link your cartridge to Design Space but you will not be cutting from that. This machine requires a computer and an internet connection.
4) Design Space offers a image rental program of $9.99 a month for up to 25,000 images (not licensed images). You can cancel at any time - it is a month by month program. You do not need to use the rental program - you can still just use your cartridge images for free. You can also purchase images for 99 cents apiece or in image sets (cartridge sets, if you will) for a variety of prices.
5) You will be able to use all the fonts on your computer, as well as any SVG files you may own (and other file types) for free. No rental needed. WOO HOO!
