Hello all,
Come and join our latest Design Contest! It's going on for the next three weeks, leading up to the launch of the full Extreme Fonts cartridge!

http://www.cricut.com/home/extreme

We’ve gone to extremes with our latest cartridge! Extreme Fonts features five new fonts: two that can be cut up to 23" high and three that can be cut as tiny as ½".

To celebrate the launch of Extreme Fonts, we’re holding a design contest!
• We’ll offer a selected font from the cartridge as the Free Cut of the Week.
• You can design a project with the featured font of the week and submit it along with instructions.
• The contest will run for three weeks, with three different featured fonts. That means you can enter up to three projects for a chance to win!

Excited to see what you all come up with!

Mallie @ Cricut

Wow-Sounds fun, I like the idea of a new font cart......Thanks for the info CricutMallie. :)

Yikes-this font don't weld right. I'm trying to use the font like cursive writing, but it won't work. Weird thing is it looks like it's in cursive format. It doesn't line up right. :(

Thanks so much.
I haven't gotten email alerts from PC in a long time even though I have it marked in my account so these kind of announcements help to keep me in the loop.

JD - Can you use the little circular logo (on the bottom left corner when you first get handles around your image/s) to turn the letters a little and then move them over into each of the other letters? I'm not home, but I do want to look at this when we return home in a few days.

Hi Mallie,

I have a question about the rules. What exactly is, "(5) large cut size for week 1&2"? I'm guessing that the 5 means 5 cuts, I'm confused about the, "large cut size" portion, how large is large?

Thank you,

Sue Kracker

Hi Sue,
That's a great question... I think they rec'd cut size is up to 23"-- so I'm pretty sure that's what the qualifications meant.
Pretty sure :)
Can't wait to see what everyone loads up!

I didn't understand a word of that.....so I guess that I'll just stick with my already posted entry, I haven't seen ANY entries using a HUGE font and the biggest cut I could get with this week's font is 10". But then I haven't seen very many entries either.

Wish we could get a sneak peek at tne next font, I'm already planning that project but it's all just guess work until we see the font.

I'm at a bit of a disadvantage due to the fact that I live in a little rural town with no craft supplies so I have to work with what I have on hand.

Thank you,

Sue Kracker


The (5) refers to the criteria list number in the rules.
(1)creativity
(2)overall aesthetic
(3)use of the Extreme Font images
(4)project category
(5)large cut size for week 1 & 2
(6)small cut size for week 3

Since the ad for the cartridge when you first come on the site says can be cut up to 23" or as small as 1/2" it seems to me they are looking for some large projects for week 1&2 like the locker example in the picture there and something using a very small size for the week 3 font.

They really should have added a size range in their rules for clarification purposes.

Hope this helps.

Hi D,

Thanks, that was what I thought at first also, BIG fonts but then all the posted projects used just regular sized fonts so I went ahead and posted mine...

oh well, i guess that leaves me out of the big ones, I don't have anything big enough for big cuts and if I order it online it won't arrive until after the contest ends. I don't know why we aren't given any real time to get things made, every time there is a contest posted, they want it right now it seems, not fair to those who work full time or like me live in a back woods town where finding a spool of thread is hard to do. SERIOUSLY!!!!!!!!

Hi Sue - I might be wrong, but I get the impression that "Large Font Size" is referring to the name or characteristic of a font style that hasn't been released/activated on CCR yet. The reason I say that is because of the name of the cartridge (Extreme Fonts - with an "s" as in more than one), and also the picture and description on the contest page. The pictured font doesn't look a thing like the one offered this week, which I'm assuming is the Basic Font. Also, the description (under the picture) says: "Extreme Fonts features five new fonts: two that can be cut up to 23" high and three that can be cut as tiny as ½"....
• We’ll offer a selected font from the cartridge as the Free Cut of the Week.
• You can design a project with the featured font of the week and submit it along with instructions.
The contest will run for three weeks, with three different featured fonts."

Anyway, that's just my interpretation of the way PC wrote it... I might be wrong.
HTH.

PS - I'm also guessing that the reason only regular-sized projects are posted right now is because the "Basic" Font is the only one available to use at this time. Again, I might be wrong, but I get the impression that you can cut these in any size you want/need for your project and that "Large Font Size" is just referring to the name/feature on the cartridge. It also probably cuts best at larger sizes in comparison to the "Small Font Size" cutting better at small sizes. Again, just a guess & I might be wrong...

Cindy J,

Thanks for the input. The rules ARE confusing, aren't they? And that "cryptic" reply I received when I first posted didn't really explain anything at all.

I believe that I've figured out a way to use 12 x 12 paper for bigger cuts, I sure hope it works and that my idea for week 2 will end up working out, it's kind of hard to get started plotting out a project when you don't have all of the elements at hand. I wonder what time tomorrow the new font will be released, I have something in mind to whip up IF I can get things to work out the way I want them to but we all know how those plans can go, don't we?

Yes Char, but that's not the problem. The problem for me is the way the letters actually connect, they just do not line up right. Have you had a chance to look or play with it yet?

For the week 3 font there kind of is...

When you are in CCR go to my cartridges and click on Extreme Fonts.

When it opens there will be 2 tabs one says basic and the other is blank.

The basic tab was for the week 1 font and if clicked the keypad will be blank.

Click on the second, blank tab and this week's font will come up on the keyboard.

Hope this helps. (also sending you a PM)

They were supposed to notify the winners via email by 2-15 and the winners have a certain amount of time to respond to their winning emails. My guess is that after they have heard back from all of the winners then they will post them.
I figured the losers might get a rejection email but I guess not, I didn't get one.

That was my understanding also BUT they announced week one winners on Facebook earlier today.

Thankfully MelodyLane saw it and posted the winners in the Cricut Chat thread.

I DO NOT do Facebook.

The official rules also said they would announce it on Cricut.com but I can't find it anywhere.

I've been checking on that... I don't have an answer for you yet, but we were under the assumption that the order had been placed and sent to the winners... I'm going to keep checking until everyone gets their prize--- including our Canadian friends :)
