Sound Off: Cricut vs…

This Sound Off is all about those electronic die cutting systems.

The reason I put “Cricut vs. … ” in the title is Cricut is probably the most well known system, however I know there are tons more on the market. Here’s your chance to let us know about all of them.

So let us know about all of them! Do you own the original Cricut or the new Expression? How about a Wishblade? The only criteria is that it be an electronic die cutting system that has some type of user interface. We aren’t looking for systems that use dies an have an electric motor pushing it through.

So now here’s your chance. Let us know what you think. Please use the following format so everyone can easily see which product you have and what you think. Please be as constructive as possible and note that posts that are overtly derogatory or inflammatory will be deleted by our editors. You are encouraged to use your name… but anonymous posts will be accepted.

For example:
Product Name
# of Stars (out of 5)
Your comments

So leave us comments and let us know about any system you have ever used. And be sure to tell your friends, we want to make sure that anyone who has used any type of systems shares their expertise with our readers. Thanks for sharing!
