Design Space Updates March 2021

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably noticed that there are some changes coming to the Cricut Design Space platform. If you pay the $9.99 a month for the subscription, no worries. But if you’re used to using the free version of Cricut Design Space, you’re going to notice a difference!

Cricut is now limiting you to 20 uploads per month in Design Space, unless you pay the $9.99 membership fee.

How to use Cricut for free

You can still use Design Space for free, but you will be limited to 20 uploads each month. You can also use Silhouette Studio for free (with no limit), but if Cricut is limiting the uploads, that may not be a viable work-around.

What can we do?

When a company does something we don’t agree with, all we can do is let our voices be heard!

How to contact Cricut

Call 877-727-4288 and press 7 to speak to an operator.

We aren’t the only ones wondering why in the world Cricut made such a big change without much warning at all!

When you call Cricut, BE NICE TO THE PHONE OPERATORS! They did not make this decision, and most probably don’t even agree with it.

You can say something like:

“I am calling to voice my concerns over the new changes made with Design Space” and CALMLY and NICELY tell them you want your voice to be heard.

Will this work? We have no idea, but there are hundreds of thousands of Cricut owners, and if we all take a few moments to make a phone call or send an email, we WILL be heard.

You can also email Cricut, which is faster but may not be as effective:

[email protected]

We are not sure why the changes have been made, but we have reached out to them. We will update this post with a response from Cricut if/when we get one.

Sign the Cricut Petitions!

If you’re upset, you’re not alone. There is now a petition to try and get Cricut’s attention. Here’s another petition to sign.

  1. The bottom line is Cricut is being greedy!! Not only do we pay for the machine, tools and supplies. Now they want a monthly fee!! You should be ashamed Ashish!!! You are greedy at this point

  2. If this goes through I will switch to a different system. I’ve had it almost 4 years now. I’m not about to start paying for software that has more cons then pros already

  3. I am currently talking with Cricut support supervisor. I’m not getting anywhere meaning my program keeps freezing. New update tomorrow may fix it. It is such a poor product for the money all of a sudden. They are refusing to let me speak to anyone higher. Cray

  4. I will not pay for this either. Why all of a sudden have us pay for it now? I will find something else to use if I will have to pay for this…sorry

  5. My husband bought my Cricut for me as I gift back in October under the terms I would be able to create as many designs as I would like and use it as I please. I am currently not working and I don’t have the extra money to keep this up just to use a machine that was a gift to me. My materials were also gifts to me so I am sure many more Cricut owners stand where I do with this. I understand 10$ doesn’t seem like a lot to most but when you don’t have 10$ to throw out and you’re saving your vinyl scraps because they cost so much….it seems very disheartening to have to be required 120$ a year to pay for something you own.

  6. I don’t agree with a monthy fee. After being free. They get you to buy the product and all what goes with it and you now need to keep paying for more is crazy. Next there going to tell you when and what days of the week your going to used your machine.
