The best Cricut pens can enhance your crafts, incorporating all kinds of inks from vibrant colours to glitter and metallic finishes. 

To help you find the Cricut pens that will take your crafts to the next level, we've looked at pens for everything from writing to drawing and illustration, colourwork, and printing onto textiles, making sure we've weighed up the cost and performance of each and detailing our findings. We start with pens that are compatible with the Cricut Maker and Explore before moving on to the Cricut Joy, and have included non-Cricut branding options, too.
