Not So Sure!
I tried the universal overlay and it works fairly easily. I like that. How do I store this? The packaging does not offer storage. Also, how is this new system saving ME money? The cartridges are just as costly as they ever were and the content is comparable. Is this ONLY to save your company money? If that's the case, I would prefer the old system with individual overlays.

I prefer individually overlay

Ok .... but
When I purchased a new release cartridge I also had to purchase this overlay. Not a problem BUT ...... I have to buy something close to size to store OR have to store in one of my older cartridge containers. And, while this "works" I would as a customer still paying the same price as before for my cartridges to have the individual overlays. This is not a savings for us YOUR CUSTOMERS .... it is a savings for PROVO CRAFT!

Like the old overlays
I have bought the new cartridges and a universal overlay for them. I prefer to have individual overlays to go with the cartridge. I do not like the new books that come with the cartridges either.

Not a fan
As the cartridge prices have remained the same, this is only saving Provo Craft money. I don't like the universal overlay. Bring back the individual overlays.

Ok, I went to buy a new cartridge and found out that in order to use it I need to purchase tis universal overlay. Why?? I like having individual overlays. Where is our savings as your customers?

We aren't stupid
now we have to buy a separate overlay if we buy a new cartridge AND cartridge prices have not gone down. So this costs us money saves you money. obviously not "for the customer" Bring back the old overlays, or adjust the price of cartridges. I prefer and overlay that I specific to my cartridge.

New and Easy
I just purchased a new cartridge with the universal overlay and I like it! It will take a little bit of time to get comfortable with it, but I think it is very useable! The only problem I have right now is finding one at the local stores!

This is easy to use, but no storage. I also miss the pictures on the box for easy reference. I probably won't buy any more cartridges - will make do with what I have.

More Earth Friendly
I've read the reviews and I do agree, it would be nice if these new cartridges were cheaper for us customers, but I do like that there is less plastic waste, smaller book size (which I find is easier to flip through and the table of contents page to make searching images easier). I don't have a problem 'storing' it either, I just keep it in a quart size ziplock bag in my cartridge drawer of my craft organizer.

Disgusted with new overlat
I have not done this yet but I plan on making a copy of the overlay and just looking what button matches with the overlay....I do not like that I have to purchase this separately. It was not told when I purchased a cartridge that I ALSO had to purchase this. Shipping something that costs $2.99 is a waste!! :-(

Marketed as saving money, but cartridge prices aren't going down. My preference is individual overlays - agree with previous reviewer that I'll likely not purchase more cartridges but just make do with what I have.
