I don't care for the font, but I like it for cutting shapes now and then - I don't really have anything else with just basic shapes on it, well, Plantin Schoolbook, but that really doesn't have very many. George is how I usually cut circles if I don't have a punch in the right size. It also (I just realized) has a couple nice speech bubbles if that's your thing.
Wow, actually, maybe circles are ALL I've ever used it for, which is kinda sad. I thought I had used it for a star, but no, that was a Sizzix die.
Jarvae, this is sooooo your lucky day! I do have 2 of these carts. My Cricut came with it, I have no clue where I got the second one. But I have an extra, and if you play your cards right, it could be yours
LOL!!! I wish I had something in my vault to fall out the window and into the mailbox for a page of tags! Alas, all I've got in there are uncut diamonds, tried and true treasure maps, and scads of nonsequential, unmarked bills.
It's actually just one cart, Henri Jean, but the name makes it sound like 2, lol. It has what I think is a good everyday font and then lots of the basic geometric shapes on it. It used to come standard with the original machines because it is a good basic cart to get started with. I still use it quite a bit, as I said earlier I really like the font so it is my go to cart when I want something quick and basic.
Jane, I've been finding that their prices are coming down. For a while they were pretty high but last night I found an unlinked one for $15 and a new in box one for $30. I think it might have to do with the time that I was looking... I let them both go and neither had a single bid. But other times they'll have several bids. I just wait those out.
Does anyone remember a few years back where someone figured out how to make a George cartridge out of cardboard and foil. ( I believe that's what it was )
From what I read back then, George is installed on every machine because that is how they get tested at the factory.
Trish, I have seen that. I actually tried it but sad to say it didn't work for me. I might have been doing it wrong... I didn't exactly spend a ton of time on it. I just gave it the ol' 5 minute try and then decided to just find the cart.
