Save £166: Cricut has just pipped everyone to the best Maker 3 offer – you get the Maker 3 and a Smart Materials bundle for a healthy 31% discount. Both are reduced right now so the sale price to buy separately is less, but this is still a massive deal on this leading machine.
Cricut Explore 3:
£299 £229.99 at CraftStash
Save £70: The Cricut Explore 3 is the brand's entry level machine that can do much of what the more expensive Maker 3 can do, but it's a little less powerful and smaller, but not by much. The RRP of the Explore 3 is £299.99 so this discount is excellent, but CraftStash has sold the machine for slightly less in than RRP in the past. But £229.99 is the lowest price around.
Hello! Welcome to our Cricut Black Friday deals live blog. There are some fab offers around today, and I've posted some at on the front page of this blog. As someone who has a number of Cricut's it's always good to take a look at the deals on materials and tools too (machine deals are posted above).
There's an amazing offer right now at Hobbycraft that gets you the bustling Cricut Tools and Materials Mega Bundle for
£157.88 £75.00 – that's a saving of £82.88 on a bundle that includes every tool a new crafter could need.
If it's just materials you're after, Cricut has a great offer on its Smart Materials Essentials Bundle for
£186.92 £119.99, which is a 35% saving on a package of new materials for Cricut Maker 3 and Explore 3 (and tool sets).
If you're after a Cricut machine but don't want to pay for the latest cutting machine, then you can get a Cricut Explore Air 2 for $169 at Walmart – a $30 saving on this older model. Don't let the fact it's older than the new Explore 3 put you off, as the Air 2 is still a capable machine (but it can't use the new Cricut Smart Materials or Feed Roller).
Bundle deals are always a great way to grab a bargain when it comes to Cricut machines, and the official Cricut store is always one of the best places to get a deal. One of eye-catching offers is the Cricut Maker 3 bundled with Vinyl and Paper Learning Kits for
$489.99 $429.99. While it has been on sale cheaper the value of the bundle is $519 and comes with stacks of new Smart Vinyls, including Shimmer and Metallic Matt finishes.
While that bundle above is a new offer and currently only available in the US, UK crafters can get some good bundle deals too, including the Maker 3 'Everything Bundle' for
£654.86 £449.99 that, as you'd expect, comes with everything.
Black Friday is the ideal time for those who have Cricut machines to build their collection of tips and attachments. One of the best is the Foil Transfer Kit for Cricut Joy, which is now
£31.99 £19.49 at Very – a saving of £12.49 for UK crafters. The UK retailer has more Cricut Joy deals this Black Friday, take a look at some of the best below:
- Joy Gift Bundle:
£284.99£189.99 – save £95
- Joy Card Making Starter Kit:
£38.99£22.99 – save £16
- Joy Heat Transfer Fashion Starter Bundle:
£46.99£28.99 – save £18
The new Cricut Maker 3 is an outstanding craft machine, the older model is still an excellent buy, and it's almost half the price now. I've found a good deal on the original Cricut Maker Champagne model, which is now £249.99 in Ryman's Black Friday clearance sale. This is a £50 saving on a machine that still does everything, apart from using Cricut's new Smart Materials (I have one, and it's used regularly).
US readers, don't fear, I have a Cricut Maker deal for you too. The original Cricut Maker in white is now just $229 at Michaels, a $170 saving on the RRP of this excellent craft machine.
US crafters are also lucky, as the rarer Rose coloured edition is now reduced at the official Cricut store. You can now get the Cricut Maker Rose for $399 $249 at Cricut.
US retailer Michaels has the Cricut Explore Air 2 on offer in one of three colours – Mint, Boysenberry and Peacock – which is unusual as even the official Cricut store no longer carries all three colours. If you're looking to get someone a Cricut machine as a gift and want a slightly unique edition, I'd recommend one of these (Peacock is deep blue-green).
The Cricut EasyPress Mini is one of our favourite devices the brand makes, and it's now reduced at Michaels. Not only can you save money, but the store has the new Zen Blue coloured model for sale. This tiny iron is superb for heat press designs but it will prove invaluable to dress makers and quilters who need to flatten seams.
If you're unsure, read our Cricut EasyPress Mini review to see why we love it. Back? Then skip over to Michaels and get the Cricut EasyPress Mini for $39 – a modest $10 saving on a gadget every crafter needs. (This gadget retails at Cricut for $69.99, so it's actually a better saving than it first looks.)
One of my favourite machines of Cricut's new devices released this year is the Cricut Mug Press that enables you to make unique mug designs – I love it. Read our Cricut Mug Press review to see just why it's so much fun.
Right now there are some great deals on this machine. If you're in the US then you can save $50 on a Cricut Mug Press at Best Buy – now just
If you're in the UK, then there's a superb £55 saving on offer: get the Cricut Mug Press for
£179 £124 at Ryman.
If you're looking for a new Cricut deal but don't want to pay for the leading Maker 3 then the brand's entry-level machine, the Cricut Explore 3 is an excellent option. This cutting machine is a little less powerful than the Maker 3 but it can use the new Smart Materials, and is a cheaper machine overall. Read our Cricut Explore 3 review for more details on what it can do.
In the US right now Cricut itself is offering Cricut Explore 3 for
$319.99 $279.99 – a $40 saving.
In the UK the Cricut store also has a discount, you can get the Cricut Explore 3 for
£299.99 £259.99 – a £40 discount.
Yes, you can have your Cricut cake and eat it! Over at Very some Cricut deals are included in the retailer's Multi-Buy offer – buy one thing and get another for free. My pick is the Cricut Maker 3 for
£369.99 £379.99 (a modest £10 saving) but Very will add in the Cricut Smart Materials bundle for no extra cost – a total actual saving of £39.99.
This 2-in-1 deal just popped up on Currys in the UK. If you're a crafter and are looking for a new cheap laptop to use Cricut Design Space with then the Acer Spin 513 LTE 13.3-inch Chromebook is an excellent option. This laptop has a Full HD touchscreen, which is ideal for finessing your craft designs and the Acer Spin 513 is only
£499 £349 – a £150 saving.
Currys has a couple of other decent Chromebook offers this Black Friday with touchscreens which you'll need for Design Space. The Acer Spin 314 14-inch 2-in-1 Chromebook is now
£449 £269 – a £180 saving.
We have a whole guide to the best software for Cricut and one app that consistently comes up is Affinity Designer. This software can be used to create bespoke designs and then import your work into Cricut's Design Space app for printing and cutting.
Right now, there's 40% off Affinity Designer 2. This makes the best-in-class graphic design software a bargain at £35.99 and an even better deal for £9.99 for the iPad edition.
This is the new edition just released in November and features new tools and workflow aids, and it's a lot cheaper than Adobe Illustrator! If you're looking to create personal designs, especially for shirt and bag heat press projects, then this software is a bargain. (Read more about this app in our Affinity Designer news story)
Let's talk Cricut Hat Press. This little heat press device enables you to create cap and hat designs with its neat little curved heat plate and stand. It's one of Cricut's more niche devices but also one of the year's most innovative gadgets. Below are is the best Cricut Hat Press UK deal and best US offer.

The Cricut Auto Press released earlier this year and its a large and impressive heat press machine. If you're serious about crafting and creating professional quality shirts, bags and more with fast and consistent results then this is a great option.
It's also on sale, right now. The Cricut Auto Press has $200.99 off at Target this weekend, which is a 20% discount on one of Cricut's newest devices. If the price looks steep it's because this large heat press is designed for second incomers, semi- and professional makers. It could be a good investment.

If you're serious about crafting then you need a serious craft table. Herman Miller makes some of my favourite desks and these tables are large and solid enough to take a Cricut machine. The Jarvis Hardwood Standing Desk is my pick, as it not only has the width and depth to fit a Cricut Maker 3 but is robust enough to cut on.
Right now you can get the Jarvis Hardwood Standing Desk for
£1,333 £1,066.40 in the Herman Miller Black Friday sale. What I really love about this desk is its standing function, which means you can raise it from a sitting to a standing desk at the touch of a button – perfect for cutting and measuring your craft projects. There are also hidden plug sockets and cable ties to keep everything tidy.
If you're after a smart bag to take your Cricut Maker or Explore on the road, or just keep it safe and dust free, then the Homest Carrying Case is a great choice. This sturdy bag can fit a Cricut Maker 3, Explore Air 2, Explore 3 and the original Maker as well as your tools and some materials. There's a 28% discount on the Homest Carrying Case at Amazon – now

We'll go hunt for some brand-new deals right now, so stand by!
Morning deal hunters! The Cricut Maker 3 has be discounted everywhere to
£429.99 £369.99 but Hobbycraft has just topped everyone buy offering the same price plus a Smart Materials Bundle that originally retailed for £104.99. This means you can get £166 of value off a Maker 3 – now £535 £369 at Hobbycraft.
There's a caveat, the Smart Materials Bundle is reduced to
£104.99 £39 so you in the sale the overall value is a little less, but outside of Black Friday it does sell for more – so this Maker 3 offer remains outstanding value.
Looking for a good Cricut machine for less? Then perhaps the new Cricut Explore 3 is worth looking at. This machine is the brand's entry-level craft cutter, so it can't quite match the 300 plus materials of the Cricut Maker 3, but for everyday crafting it's a good machine. Read our Cricut Explore 3 review for a detailed look.
Right now you can find a number of deals on Explore 3. The RRP of an Explore 3 is $319.99 / £299.99 so keep this in mind when judging discounts.
If you're in the UK then Craft Stash as a selection of eye-catching bundle deals, including a Cricut Explore 3 with the Foil Transfer Kit for £309.99 – which is a modest £9 saving. If you're simply after the machine, then get an Explore 3 from Cricut for
£299.99 £259.99 – a decent £40 saving.
US readers can get a $40 saving at Michaels, the store is offering a Cricut Explore 3 for
$319 $279. Cricut itself is offering an Explore 3 Essentials Materials Bundle for $486.91 $329.99.
Cricut Joy is the brand's breakout hit that is a great addition to any crafter's collection of gadgets, whether you already have a larger Maker or Explore. The compact design means this is ideal for taking to a friend's house for an afternoon of making, and the easy app means kids can get involved with card making too.
Right now in the UK there are a number of deals but you can save £56 on a Cricut Joy at Ryman – now
£185 £129. This is £10 less than Hobbycraft, Currys and Cricut.
If you're in the US there are a number of good deals, but the Cricut Joy for
$159 $129 at Michaels is an excellent offer (a modest $30 saving). If you're after a bundle, then the best place to go is the Cricut store, as the brand itself has a number of Cricut Joy bundle deals for $149 – choose from iron-on materials to card stock and more.
Crafters! I'm going a little off piste right now and will give some space to the best Cricut alternative Black Friday sales on at the moment. If you need to see what these are in detail, read my guide to the best Cricut alternatives and my feature on Cricut vs Silhouette.

I'm diverting out of the Cricut lane here as Michaels has some good offers on sewing machines, including the excellent range of Singer Heavy Duty machines (we reviewed the Singer Heavy Duty 4423 earlier this year).
If you're a keen crafter and Cricut user then eventually you will need a reliable sewing machine to use with your craft cutter. My pick of the deals for Cricut users would be the Singer M4452 Heavy Duty that has $50 off at Michaels, making it $199.99. This is a good sewing machine with a powerful motor, solid build and plenty of pre-installed stitches.
If you want to spend a little more you can get the computerised Singer HD6700C Heavy Duty for $279.99 – a $70 saving. This is more advanced and features more stitches, including basic, stretch, and decorative stitches as well as fonts and lettering – ideal for quilting and Cricut projects.
UK crafters can now get the CricutMug Press Starter Pack for £179.99 (save £30) and it's selling fast on Very. This bundle includes the excellent Mug Press along with Infusible Ink Sheets, the Infusible Ink Pen set and a two pack of 12 OZ Ceramic Mug Blanks.
US readers can get a similar bundle deal at Michaels: get the Cricut Mug Press Pop Beveled Bundle for $169 – a saving of $67.95. This bundle features the Mug Press along with two Cricut Beveled Ceramic Mug Blanks (Miami and Ocean) as well as some unique Infusible Ink Sheets (Purple Watercolor Splash and Pink Lemonade).
If you're looking for more info on what Cricut machines to get and the differences between them, we have you covered here at CreativeBloq. For starters we have a guide to everything in our best Cricut machines buyers guide, and we have our Maker 3 review and Explore 3 review to read.
Don't forget to take a dive into our Maker vs Maker 3 comparison, as Cricut's older machine has a good deal on today (see the top page of this Live Bloq) and is still a quality craft machine.
Finally, head to our Maker 3 bundles deals page where we've gathered all of Cricut's best machine + bundle offers – there are some huge savings on offer.

Cricut's entry-level machine is currently having a beauty of a discount – the Cricut Explore 3 cutting machine may not be as powerful as versatile as the Cricut Maker 3, but it's still a very good machine, especially for beginers to intermediate crafters, and is currently down from $319.99 to $279.99, saving you $40.
If you're still looking in the UK, there's an equivelent deal – get the Cricut Explore 3 for
We're veering a little into Cricut-adjacent territory here, as we know many Cricut users also use sewing and embroidery machines in their craft. There are some nice Black Friday deals on sewing machines going around, and one we wanted to flag up this offer on the Brother FS100WT sewing/embroidery machine, now £289.99 on Amazon, down £130 from its RRP, and the lowest price we've recorded for it this year. Brother is a quality maker of sewing and craft machinery, and this model is a good budget alternative to the altogether more imposing – and expensive – Brother Innovis NV1800Q, so as far as general-purpose sewing machines go, this is a deal to consider.
Cricut Joy is the brand's small and compact little cutter than can, and you can pick one up this Black Friday for as little as
$179.99 $129.99 in the US at Cricut. This small craft cutter is capable of making cards, iron-on designs, and Mug Press designs.
If you're in the UK you can get a similar value deal, with the Cricut Joy reduced to
£189.99 £139.99 at Cricut – a saving of £50 on one of the brand's best and most unique craft machines.
If you need to know more, read our Cricut Joy review.
Stop the presses! UK crafters can now get a huge £70 discount on RRP of the new Cricut Explore 3 at CraftStash. The UK retailer is offering a Cricut Explore 3 for £229.99 (this usually retails for £299.99 though CraftStash has recently sold it for a little less).
The Cricut Explore 3 is one of the brand's newest craft cutting machines and can make use of the new Smart Materials range, which means you can cut without a mat. This is a powerful and versatile machine. Read our Cricut Explore 3 review to find out more.
The Cricut Autopress is the new, large heat press machine that has been quietly discounted this Black Friday. This is a big and almost industrial-level heat press that will help any crafter develop a studio or small business.
The Cricut Autopress reduced to
$999.99 $799.99 at Walmart, a decent $200 saving on this new and elegant heat press. Walmart also has an Autopress bundled with a selection of iron-On materials for $999.99 but I'd say this isn't the best value, as you can pick up the same materials for $99 at Cricut.
The $200 discount on the Autopress only really is the best deal around on this advanced heat press machine.
Just in! Walmart is undercutting the common Cricut Joy deals by $4.49 – yes, really, Cricut Joy is now $125.50. It may not be a huge difference, and you may prefer to stick with a favourite retailer such as Michaels or Cricut, where the same cutting machine is $229. This usually retails for $179.99, so whichever store you go for you're getting a good deal today on a wonderful compact craft machine.
The excellent Cricut Tool Organiser is now
$32.99 $18.54 at Amazon, which is an impressive 40% saving on a little gizmo every Cricut crafter needs. If you're a serious Cricut user then you'll have an number of expensive blades and tool attachments and this smartly designed box keeps them safe and clean.
An older craft machine but still a good one is the Explore Air 2, this is very similar to the newer Explore 3 but it can't use Cricut's new Smart Materials – its range of materials designed to be used without a cutting mat for extra length and ease.
But, Explore Air 2 remains a sound craft machine for beginners and there are some cheap Cricut deals in the sales today. You can get a Cricut Explore Air 2 for
$199 $169 at Target – a 15% saving on this older model. It means you can get a Cricut craft machine for a lot less.
The Target offer is on all four colour models of the Explore Air 2 – Mint, Emerald Green, Blue and Lilac – which is a little unusual right now, for example Walmart is still selling the Lilac model at full price.
The Cricut Roll Holder is now
$54.99 $27.49 at Best Buy, which is a fantastic 50% saving on this essential attachment for the new Cricut Maker 3 and Cricut Explore 3. The Roll Holder enables you to use large rolls of Smart Materials – 4-75ft (3-22.8 m) – and extend your crafting projects.
A Roll Holder means you can now create larger makes, and even design and make your own wallpaper on your Cricut machine. If you're lucky enough to have one of the newer compatible Cricuts released this year, then you need the Roll Holder to get the most from your new cutting machine.
Head to the Cricut store for bulk deals on Smart Materials and more, including almost 75% off 12ft rolls of Iron-On materials –
$40.68 - $78.99 $18.99 – all colours so pricing varies.
Cricut's Iron-On materials can be used with Cricut Maker and Explore machines and the EasyPress machines for heat-pressing the materials to shirts, bags and more. These material colours can be layered for extra effect and last up to 50 washes.
The older model Cricut Easypress 2 (12x10) in raspberry is now
$239.99 $149.00 at Walmart – a 38% saving. This may be Cricut's later device, replaced this year by the new EasyPress 3, but the only substantial difference between the two heat press machines is the connectivity to the new HeatPress app. Other than that, EasyPress 2 is an excellent and consistent heat press that rethought how these devices should look and work.
This offer at Walmart is on larger 12x10 inch model, but the smaller 9x9 version is also in the Cricut sale this Black Friday. The EasyPress 2 is 9x9 is just $189.99 $99 at Walmart.
Save 50% off Cricut materials, tools and accessories at Michaels. This includes blank mugs and t-shirts for use with Cricut Mug Press and Cricut EasyPress, as well as blades, the foil transfer kit for Cricut Joy, and the Smart Materials.
Cricut only released its Glue Gun weeks ago and now you can get 50% off at Michaels. The new Cricut Glue Gun is now
$39.99 $19.99 – a fantastic $20 saving on the newest craft accessory for Cricut.
The Cricut Glue Gun features all the little design notes we've come to expect from this brand, for example the device features a small tip for accuracy, a silicon surround for easy-cleaning and a smooth trigger that offers exact and steady glue flow.
Safety features include an auto-shut-off and an LED to let you know when its at the perfect temperature.
The tiny Cricut MiniPress is one of our favourite craft devices here at CreativeBloq, we scored it 5/5 in our EasyPress Mini review. This Black Friday you can get the EasyPress Mini and materials bundle for
$140.93 $79 – a saving of $65.93.
This bundle offer includes:
We're back championing the smart Cricut Joy as the Cricut store on Amazon has a number of deals this weekend. Whether you want to pick up the machine on its own for less or grab a machine and bundle deal, this fun little craft cutting and design machine is worth a look, especially at these prices. Below are our favourite deals, which all include the machine and digital asset bundle as standard:
- Cricut Joy: now
$179$125.30 – save 30%

Just a quick reminder, some of the best Cricut deals around at the moment are on the craft lamps the company makes. For example, you can get the excellent Cricut 360 Ultimate LED Table Lamp for $199 $129 at Target – that's an impressive $70.99 / 35% saving. The offer is valid on both the white and indigo lamps.
Now, I'm off for a cuppa tea and a biscuit. More deals soon.
We mentioned a Black Friday Cricut glue gun deal earlier today, and here's another one – this time in a bundle with a weeding kit, mat and other tools that come in Cricut's essentials bundle. This is a Cricut Black Friday deal from the brand's own online store, saving $47.95.
Released very recently, the Cricut Glue Gun has an small, accurate tip, it delivers smoothly and it has a silicon surround for easy-cleaning.
- Cricut Glue Gun Essentials Bundle:
$147.94$99.99 at Cricut
We mentioned a while ago the Amazon deal on the Cricut Joy – reduced from $175 to $125.30
One of the best things about the Joy is its portability, so you might also want to pick up the Cricut Joy Tote Bag, which is reduced from $39.99 to $19.99 at Amazon. It's padded inside to help protect your little craft machine, there's a pocket for tools or other accessories, and it has a strap that makes it easy to carry.
The Cricut Explore Air 2 may be an older model, but it's still a perfectly capable craft cutting machine. Over at Amazon you can get $10 – making the Cricut Explore Air 2 $169.99. It's easily the cheapest of Cricut's larger cutting machines, and it can cut over 100 materials, including cardstock, vinyl and iron-on materials as well as glitter paper, cork and fabrics.
Cricut's newest heat press device is the Cricut Hat Press. It's a nifty machine for pressing to caps and hats – perfect for quickly turning out branded merchandise for a small business. Amazon has the Cricut Hat Press reduced from $149.99 to $129.
It's reduced from £139.99 to £109 in the UK.
Hi there crafty deal hunters. Welcome to the Sunday portion of our weekend-long mega blog, where we'll be finding out if retailers are going to bring in some brand-new deals for Cricut Cyber Monday, or just stick to the Black Friday Cricut haul we're already deep in.
One of our favourite deals from Friday is still going, this chance to get 13 per cent off Cricut Explore 3:
£299.99 £259.99 at Cricut. We love the Explore 3, as our Cricut Explore 3 review shows. It's fast, smart and you don't need a mat. You can use smart materials with it, too, so we highly recommend checking out this Smart Materials bundle, price slashed from £104.99 to just £39 at Hobbycraft.
Cyber Monday deals are looking a lot like Black Friday deals, which is still good. While all eyes are on the newer Cricut machines, it's possible to get good deals on Cricut Maker – the original hit craft cutting machine from Cricut.
You can get a Cricut Maker for £259 at Ryman – a saving of £50 on this still-excellent machine (I have one and it's still going strong after three years of regular use).
Over in the US, you can get a Cricut Maker for £229 at Michaels – a good $20 saving. This isn't a huge saving, but makes it less than the Explore 3, for example, and it's a little more powerful.
The only drawback to Maker over Maker 3 or Explore 3 is it can't use the new Smart Materials or Roll Holder. but can use all other Cricut materials and standard card, wood, fabric and more.
That deal on Cricut Maker got me looking at what offers are available for the older Cricut Explore Air 2. Just like Maker the Explore Air 2 is a good but older machine, and it's only drawback is a lack of Smart Materials use – if you use a craft cutter for normal materials and don't mind a mat, it's fine.
Some of the best Explore Air 2 deals this Cyber Monday and Black Friday US:
- Cricut: Cricut Explore Air 2 now
$249.99$169.99 – save $80
- Target: Cricut Explore Air 2 for

I'm sticking with Cricut Hat Press for this next deal focus, as the Cricut Store has some new deals for Cyber Monday. Some of the best if you are looking to get this new heat press device, are the bundle deals on offer. These Cyber Monday deals direct from Cricut are US-only:

Let's not leave Cricut's newest and most powerful craft cutting machine out of the Cyber Monday and Black Friday deals fun. This machine is a powerful and adaptable cutter that can handle over 300 materials and many attachments. Right now there a are a number of price reductions.
If you're in the US then you can get a Cricut Maker 3 for
$429.99 $379.99 direct from Cricut. UK crafters can get Cricut Maker 3 for £429.99 £369.99 from Cricut. Both deals are good, if not spectacular and buying from Cricut you know there will be good aftercare service.
While we're here for the best Cricut deals, don't forget there are some other craft machines we love too. Right now UK Cyber Monday and Black Friday deal hunters can get the excellent Silhouette Cameo 4 Pro for £576.75 at Craft Stash – this is huge £192.24 off of the UK RRP.
This is a great Cricut Maker 3 alternative that is larger and slightly more powerful than the Maker 3 – but it's also usually much more expensive and has fewer blade attachments than Cricut's machine. Read my Silhouette vs Cricut guide for a full comparison.
Keep in mind when looking at this deal that this is for the Cameo 4 Pro – the largest and most expensive model.
If you're in the US, you can get a Silhouette Cameo 4 Pro for
$499.99 $459.99 at Michaels – a modest $40 saving this Cyber Monday and Black Friday. But you can be part of the fun too!
If you're looking for a good heat press and want a little extra, then I've found the deal. You can get a Cricut EasyPress 2 9"x9" with 12"x12" Mat - Mint for
$169 $129 at Target. This is a nice bundle on Cricut's older model heat press, and the store also has a similar bundle EasyPress 12"x12" model.
I'm back hovering over the deals at the official Cricut store's Cyber Monday sales. The 'Doorbusters' bundles have impressed me a lot recently as they offer exceptional value for money if you have a newer Cricut Maker, Joy or Explore 3 – or are getting one – and would like to pick up materials and tools at a bargain price.
Best US 'Doorbusters' Deals
- Glitter Vinyl Materials Bundle: $128.41 $44.99

If you're new to Cricut or digital craft machines then we have some excellent guides and reviews to help you understand what all this fun is about. For starters, read my guide to the best Cricut machines and the best Cricut alternatives to see what these machines can do. I'd recommend reading our Cricut Maker 3 review and a Cricut Explore 3 review too, as these are Cricut's most expensive machines.
One of the newer and more fun new gadgets from Cricut is the Mug Press that let's you print your own mug designs. You can get a Cricut Mug Press for
$199.99 $149.99 at Walmart – a good 25% saving.
Note, you can't create new designs on the Mug Press, though you can use the new Cricut HeatPress app to design them. You'll need a craft cutting machine to trim the designs from Iron-On materials. I'd recommend the Cricut Joy discounted to $123.50 at Amazon. This is 30% price drop on a small craft machine that's an ideal companion device.
If you're getting a new Cricut or have one and need to get more from it, then you'll need a good laptop or tablet. The best Black Friday and Cyber Monday laptop deals around right now mean you can get a bargain.
You'll ideally need a large touchscreen to make the most of Cricut Design Space and you can use Apple, Windows or Chromeook with the app. Below are some of the best Black Friday and Cyber Monday laptop deals to use with Cricut:
