5 Stars4.8 / 5
Cricut Mint Explore Air 2 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 430.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brillaint, but not perfect. The Cricut Explore Air 2 is a beautiful machine, and comes with everything you need for doing your first test project. I've had it for less than a week and I've already made three sets of stickers, one of them for my business, and a complex stencil for my own use, and I've got some costuming projects in mind for it next. I'm knocking down one star because: - the software can be fiddly to use if you are printing anything you made yourself as opposed of using their pre-made designs - related to the above, the software seems unable to import images in the measurements they were created in; dpi are ignored and most people would initially settle for "aproximate" measurements by eye until they realise they can use the sizing setting in the toolbar - the print and cut option -useful for stickers- is limited to Letter size. It doesn't matter that the machine is sold outside the US where letter format is not common, and it doesn't matter that Letter is wider than our A4, it will still force-resize your images to fit within the width and length of a Letter page, unless you bypass that via system-printing Overall, a great machine, useful if you do scrapbooking, or have last minute card and decoration needs. Brilliant if you have a small business and need quick promo materials die-cut to your specs. Just be patient with the software.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unleashing my craft monster I’ve wanted one of these for a while and when I found I could get 20% off that was it. My long saved Christmas money was spent! Excellent machine and the design centre is well worth paying for for inspiration. Now to just decide what I want to make first!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic! The Cricut Explore Air 2 has so far been brilliant, I've used it every night for the week I've had it and will continue to do so! The only down side is we were told a scoring stylus came with it and didn't so we had to purchase one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent machine Fantastic machine. Easy to use. Not bulky, and the colour just sets off a professional look! Love the compartments for storing tools. Great how you can close it up to keep any dust off the runners when not in use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So glad I bought this ! I put off buying this as a large expense. But it's well worth it ! Made so many things already and discovering more every day ! Only lose a star as app function for design space not great and need to have a laptop to get full use of machines capability !

Cricut Explore Air 2 Q&A

The Explore Air 2 is ideal for crafters who wish to make their papercraft projects more intricate, as well as for creating personalised vinyl and iron-on designs. The Cricut Maker comes with an additional rotary blade for working with fabric-based projects, as well as for working with heavier and thicker materials. The Maker features all of the functionality of the Explore Air 2, with a more powerful cutting system.

Blade replacement depends on how much you use your Cricut machine and which materials you choose. They are designed to last well, but replacement blades are easily available for when you do require a new one. To get the most out of your blades, ensure you use the correct blade, housing and machine settings for your material.

All blades require a specific housing, colour coded for easy pairing. If you already have the correct housing for your blade and are simply replacing the blade, you will only need to replace the blade itself. If you are purchasing a new blade, you will need to buy the matching housing. This excludes the Quickswap range, which is interchangeable.

The Cricut Explore Air 2 cuts a wide range of materials, provided it is less than 2mm thick. This includes paper, vinyl, iron-on, cardstock, fabric, poster board, foil, burlap, canvas, sticker paper, craft foam, cork, duct tape sheets, thin faux leather, felt, flat cardboard, light chipboard, glitter paper, parchment paper, washi sheets, wrapping paper, wax paper, vellum and window cling.

Cricut Design Space is free, cloud-based software that is used in conjunction with your Cricut machine. It is available for download on iOS and Android devices, as well as desktops and laptops. An internet connection is required to use Design Space.

Within Design Space, there are thousands of images and projects that can be used to create your own projects, and you can also upload your own designs. It is free to use a selection of images available in Design Space and to create your own designs. Toaccess unlimited use of the full library of designs, there is a £7.49 subscription.

On first logging into Design Space, you will be taken on a tour and shown how to create your first project. However, if you need further help, there are lots of tutorials on the Cricut YouTube channel that take you through Design Space’s many capabilities.

Projects that are created in Design Space can be saved to the Cloud so that they can be accessed anywhere you are (as long as you have an internet connection). Alternatively, you can save projects to the device you are creating them on, though you will not be able to access these on any other device.

Design Space is free to use for your own designs. You can also access a selection of free designs in the library.

For unlimited use of the Cricut library on Design Space, there is a subscription for £7.49 a month. You can also purchase per image if you wish to access a particular design.

If you wish to create iron-on transfers to customise your t-shirts with motifs and more, both the Cricut Explore Air 2 and the Cricut Maker will achieve incredible results. If you wish to design personalised t-shirts with applique fabric details, use the Maker to cut designs into fabrics including cotton, fleece, denim, heavy leather and more.

Yes, the cartridges can be used with all Cricut machines. You can still use the content of the physical cartridges through Design Space. It's easy to link your account through Design Space using your Explore machine or a cartridge adapter. Click to view step-by-step instructions

Cricut Vinyl will stick to most smooth surfaces, including walls, glass, ceramic.
