I am wanting to buy a Cricut. I want to be able to create invites, party decor and so much more. I am having a very hard time figuring out all the differences in the different machines. Any help?

i would wait until the E2 comes out. Otherwise for sure get the expression. You can't go wrong. With the Expression and the E2 you can make BIG stiff. 12x24 size stuff. with the other machines you can only do 6x12.

GO BIG!!! you will not be sorry!!!

Do these print as well or only cut? I am pretty lost on these.

The only machine that has printing capabilities is the Imagine.

but it does not print from your computer. you would only be able to print from the imagine cartridges.

I'd definately go for the machine that cuts 12x12 (Expression, E2 or the Imagaine). as far as which one to get ... what do you want to spend? what ultimately do you want to be able to do with it?

I would suggest getting an Expression. It will cut as large as any machine but does not print.

The Expression is easy to learn, cuts wonderfully and is large enough to handle all kinds of projects. I wouldn't suggest the Imagine; I cannot 'imagine' trying to learn on it, although I love mine. I use my Expression with my Imagine even now. I wouldn't suggest the Personal Cutter (Baby Bug) or the Create because you are really limited on paper size! I gave my Baby Bug to my daughter and now I find it a pain to trim down the paper when I am helping her.

You can usually find a good deal on the Expression on line. I got mine in 2006 for about $150. There are lots of bundled machines out there that offer cartridges, which you will want plenty of!

The only reason I am not suggesting the E2 is that it is not out yet! And, with it being brand new, there could be bugs to be worked out. The Expression is tried and true.

No matter which you decide on, you will love it!!!

As someone else mentioned, only the imagine prints from carts, BUT you can buy markers for the expression to insert in place of the blade and then it will draw the image instead of cutting it. I say go for the expression or e2. My hunch is that if you wait until the E2 comes out you can probably find the expression cheaper…. Be sure to check out ebay and/or cricutmachine.com for sales or good prices….
