Question by Sara: how do cricut machines work?
I have a small business making hairbows, clothes, and accessories for kids. I have been looking into expanding a little bit. I have seen several different websites for similar businesses where people have put designs on serving plates, dishes, ornaments, etc. Just looking at the pictures they don’t look like they are painted on. I was wondering if anyone knew if maybe they are using a Cricut machine? It seems like a good idea, but I’m not exactly sure how they work. I have watched the video on the website but it didn’t really tell me a lot. Does it work as a printer as well or just cut one color of paper/vinyl? Can you hand wash items if you were to put a design on a serving dish? That’s just a couple of questions. Anyone that has one of these machines that could give me some insight would be great! I would love to get one, but that’s a good bit of money to spend if it’s not what I need. Thanks again everybody! 🙂

I would not get the Cricut machine to etch on glass. It just done’t work that well for this purpose.
It’s main use is to cut out die cut shapes and letters from cardstock.
Ink for a regular printer would be cheaper to use.
