CRICUT MACHINE SETTINGS GUIDE



Hi Everyone,

I came across this great Cricut Machine Settings Guide that I thought would make a handy reference guide for our customers with Cricut Machines.
I hope you find this helpful.

Please keep in mind that all machines are different and that this is just a general guide,
Example: a friend's machine cuts paper on blade depth 4 and another friend's machine cuts paper on blade depth 2.
