Best Apps and Websites for Cricut, Silhouette, and Cameo Users. These are my must-have apps when working with my Cricut. There are many variations of a lot of these apps. These are the ones I have found the easiest to work with.
On the Wordmark.it website you can type whatever text you are working with and it will show you what it looks like in every font on your computer. This is a huge time saver compared to trying to look up each individually. (especially with how slow design space is)
Font Squirrel posts fonts that are free for commercial use! They also have a font identifier, so you can upload and image and it helps find the font on it.
So helpful in multiple ways. You can share your listings to help get more traffic and sales or find ideas and tutorials.
Raise is an awesome site that helps save money when buying supplies by buying people’s gift cards they don’t want at a percent off. They have gift cards for most stores that offer them. It’s very easy to use and the gift cards come up pretty quickly so each time I am buying something online I see if that store offers a gift card. You get $5 off your first order and they frequently send coupon codes to your email for an extra percent off certain stores. Currently, there are cards for up to 18.1% off Michaels and 10% off A.C. Moore. It’s a pretty significant savings especially since it’s a gift card you can use it with other coupon codes.
5. Watermark App
6. The Image Converter
Easily converts images and documents to nearly any image format including .SVG!
7. Monogram It!
Easily Create perfect monograms backgrounds for your phone that you can download and email to yourself to use in design space. You will save time not trying to resize all the letters and get the perfect shape.
Take a picture with your phone and it instantly converts it to a scanned image.
9. Eraser App
Allows you to erase the background of pictures. Great for using pictures for listing products. Make sure you take the photo of the product against a drastically different color to make it easier to recognize the background.
10. Font Candy
Allows you do download fonts to your phone and instantly uploads them into design space.
This is similar to Inkscape, but for your phone. Allows you to make vectors on your phone and save them as .SVG
Even if you don’t plan on selling a lot I suggest starting an Etsy shop. I just list things that were easy to make after I’ve made them for myself or as a gift that way you can make a little bit of money and since you have a “business” you can deduct your craft supplies. 🙂
15. Quickbooks Self-Employed (If you sell your crafts)
I recently got this because it has a 50% off promotion for your first 6 months. I don’t know if I can ever go back. It syncs with all of your bank accounts/turbo tax and makes budgeting and taxes so much easier. It also tracks your mileage if you would like so you can easily deduct post office and craft runs from your taxes.
If you know if any others please feel free to comment. 🙂
