There are a lot of cartridges that you can buy for the cricut for less than 15.00 on ebay. Also, with Design Studio on your computer you can design things using basic shapes from the cartridges like George and Plantin Schoolbook. I have created the statue of liberty and the state of Texas. There are lots of free .cut files out there.
However, boy would it be cool to be able to cut True Type fonts. I think i just might like to have both. lol.
