Cricut Access FAQ

What’s the difference between Cricut Access and Cricut Design Space?
Cricut Access and Cricut Design Space are two separate things. Design Space is the program you use to design your project. Cricut Access is a subscription based service that gives you access to additional designs within Design Space (and other perks).

Do I need Cricut Access?
If you plan to purchase more than a few designs a month, or if you order products from Cricut’s website on a regular basis, you’ll want to pick up a membership.

How can I tell if an item is included in my Cricut Access subscription?:
If an image, project or font is included with a Cricut Access subscription, it will have a green “a” at the top corner.

The green Cricut Access banner will appear whether you have a Cricut Access account or not. You will see that is says “Subscribed” and you can use it without paying anything extra, if you have an Access account. If you do not have an Access account, you can still purchase the designs, but it will be a separate charge.

What happens if your subscription expires?
If your Cricut Access subscription expires, and you don’t choose to renew, Cricut Access images will no longer be available in your account. This includes anything that you made previously with Access designs and want to make now.  Any images, fonts or projects that you have purchased, even if you got the Cricut Access Discount, will still remain in your account as purchased designs are yours to keep. Cricut Access auto renews, so if you do not want to automatically renew your order, make sure to contact Cricut or cancel it though your Cricut account.

TIP: The Cricut Access discount can be stacked on top of sale prices or other coupon codes you may have access to. (yay!)
