There’s no shortage of tools to help the designer preview their creations, but the Cricut Explore really got our attention with its simplicity and reasonable price. Want to print out a prototype for a diecut brochure? This printer can handle anything from vinyl and fabric to card stock and poster board. Just slide in your material, set the cutting-depth dial, and you’re off.
You can also insert a marker or scoring tool into a special marker head, allowing you to write, draw or score the material at the same time that you’re cutting it.
Get it online in February or in select stores starting March 15th; price: $299.
