Lyrical Lettering Cricut Cartridge FAQ

I have received some questions about the Lyrical Lettering Cricut cartridge, and I thought I would share my answers here with everyone.

In case you have not had a chance to see this cartridge yet, it's great!  It offers seven different font sets.  Each set includes both upper and lowercase letters, as well as extras, including numbers, symbols, phrases, and shapes.

Here is a preview shot of the different types of fonts available on Lyrical Lettering:

Now, on to the questions...

Some of the letters are very delicate, and I keep tearing my paper and card stock when I try to cut them.  What can I do to prevent this from happening?

The easiest way to overcome this problem is to set your machine's speed to slow and lessen the pressure of the cutting blade.  When you remove the die cuts from your cutting mat, make sure you take extra care, and consider using the spatula tool or a craft knife to lift the die cuts from the mat.

Does the Lyrical Lettering Cricut cartridge have a shadow feature?

Nope.  I know - it's hard to believe, isn't it?  Almost all Cricut cartridges have a shadow feature, but this one does not.  However, you get an entire extra font set instead.  If you ask me, it's a pretty good trade off.

I see there is a creative feature called "Connected".  Will the letters I cut with this actually be connected?

No.  You still will need to use the Design Studio Software to weld the letters together into words.  However, the die cut letters created with the Connected creative feature are designed so that you can cut them out individually, but them place them together so that they do actually look attached.

Well, I hope you enjoy the Lyrical Lettering Cricut cartridge as much as I do!  As always, if you have any other questions, feel free to post them below.  I will do my best to answer them...
