Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows

CNET Editors' review

Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows is a program that you can with Cricut Personal and Cricut Expression die cut machines to cut shapes and letters made with True Type fonts.

Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows has a stylish interface that features a self-healing mat as the background. We entered some sample text into the program and found that you can change the text size by clicking and dragging one of the corners of the bounding box, as you can with most page-layout and shape-drawing programs. Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows has some common shapes built into the menu, and a feature called "Welding" allows users to create new shapes out of overlapping shapes. You can import SVG files, a handy feature for users who use other software to create graphics. You can save your files and you can activate your Cricut machine with the "Cut" button through the program's menus. There is not a way to print or Export artwork created with Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows, but that might be asking for too much, since the program was designed to be used with Cricut machines.

Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows has a good Help file that includes instructions on how to use the program as well as how to hook up your Cricut machine to your computer. The program does leave a watermark on your artwork during the trial. For users who have Cricut Personal and Cricut Expression die cut machines, Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows is a useful tool.

    "NOT for Cricut"

    September 21, 2011  |   By toeke2

    Version: Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows 3.007

    Pros

    Many possibilities.

    Cons

    Not working with Cricut.

    Summary

    Although the description mentions the Cricut over and over, this version is NOT compatible with the Cricut. You need an older version for that.
    This information is wrong !

    "Say ByeBye to what was a good software"

    July 2, 2011  |   By neferladybug

    Version: Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows 2.030

    Pros

    none as it cannot be activated

    Cons

    You can no longer buy an activation key for this software due to "PC" taking legal action against the software producer

    Summary

    Waste of time even downloading it now as you will only get a demo version that outs lines through anything you try to use.

    "Excellent, versatile, fun to use."

    November 19, 2010  |  

    Version: Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows 2.030

    Pros

    Can use any true-type font, can make your own die-cuts, easy to make the project the exact size you need. Lots of tutorials available.

    Cons

    Can be tricky getting the workspace organized.

    Summary

    The ability of SCAL to use any true-type font makes the program incredibly versatile. You can manipulate the fonts on the workspace to see exactly how they will look. You can add special effects, such as welding letters, adding shadow, and cutting on a slant. The program is easy to figure out and there are many tutorials available to help you create what you want.

    "Wow, what a great product for the price"

    July 8, 2009  |   By snownut

    Version: Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows 1.016

    Pros

    Very easy to use

    Cons

    No con to the software, but I do wish the download was more of a trial version that really showed what you could cut and did not have lines through it. This would make me more sure before I purchase full license.

    Summary

    I plan to purchase the full version. I think it is a great piece of software for using with my Cricut machine. Wish I'd discovered it before I purchased Cricut software for $100

    "Works perfectly. This software cuts anything you want!"

    July 6, 2009  |   By jdowns11

    Version: Sure Cuts A Lot for Windows 1.016

    Pros

    Costs the same as a single Cricut cartridge. Cut with regular fonts you already have on your computer, or download thosands more for free on the internet. Developer is constanly releasing free updates to improve product.

    Cons

    Images you want to cut must be in SVG file format. Not a big deal as there are programs that will convert your existing artwork to SVG.

    Summary

    You can find it cheaper. Just Google "sure cuts a lot".

    Cons

    I had to download the upgrade to my cricut before i could use it and you have to have a cartridge in to use this program.You do have to buy the special usb a/b cord also.
