I offered to buy hers, but she wanted to keep it as a portable option - she bought a huge heat press because that's her main reason why she uses her Cricut - iron on stuff.
At first I wasn't going to purchase one because I don't use iron on as much as paper and regular vinyl, but after using it and seeing the huge difference, I knew it was worth it! I looked at all the usual spots searching for the best price and lo and behold it was Walmart. Not Walmart.com - oh no it was more expensive than my local store. I got the 9x9 for $148!
I am so excited and I can't wait to unbox it and use it for the first time!
These are not my images, but I did get mine in raspberry.
So, if this is something you're considering, I say GO FOR IT! Be sure to check your local Walmart since their regular price was better than any sale price I saw.
