Cricut Jukebox Q&A

The newly released Cricut Jukebox is already a hot seller. I guess you could call it the "Wii" of the scrapbooking world! (Yep, I guess it's obvious I have kids!) Anyway, if you are not really sure what it is, or even if you need one, this short Q&A will hopefully give you some insight. Personally, I think it's a great little gadget, and my guess is that the demand will outpace the supply for some time. My advice - if you want one and you see one for a good price, get it!

Cricut Jukebox

"I have a Personal Electronic Cutter and an Expression machine. Can I use it for both?"

First, let me say I am green with envy! You are very lucky to have both machines. Yes, it does work with both. Simply plug it in where the cartridge would normally go on either machine, and you should be up and running with no problem.

"Is it just a case for holding cartridges?"

Yes, it is a case for cartridges, but it is also much more! First of all, it has room in its base for holding your overlays and booklet.

The best part, however, is that it eliminates the need for constantly swapping cartridges in and out of your machine. I don't know about you, but I think switching cartridges is a real pain in the neck (and now that I have the Cricut Design Studio Software, I find I am constantly swapping them). The Jukebox eliminates this hassle, by allowing you to use six cartridges at one time without switching. You can also link up to three of them together, allowing you to use up to eighteen cartridges at one time.

 "I like to take my Personal Electronic Cutter to scrap meets. How portable is the Jukebox?"

It was built for toting around. Provo Craft was smart enough to add a handle on top too, so you should have no problem taking it anywhere.

"I have A LOT of cartridges, and I'm thinking about buying more than one Cricut Jukebox, but I don't need any more clutter in my scrapbooking area."

I know what you mean! The nice thing is that they are made to stack one on top of the other. So, whether you have one, two or three of them, it shouldn't really matter, because you can just build them up vertically.

If you have any more questions, feel free to post them below, and I will see if I can answer them...

    Is there a place to order just the 4ft cord without having to buy another jukebox? For someone who already has 3, it would be nice to be able to just replace the cord.

  2. Hi Judy, I would recommend directly contacting the customer service department for Cricut. Following is a link to their contact page:
