In this post, I’m sharing the ultimate print&cut test using 11 different materials mentioned above. This test relies on the Cricut print&cut functionality.
WHAT IS PRINT&CUT
The Cricut print&cut functionality allows us to first print out our graphics and then use the Cricut to cut them out thus freeing us from manually cutting everything. Cricut prints out a black guideline which is detected by the Cricut censor to cut out the graphics.
