I think I posted this on the wrong forum so am re-posting here.


I need to make a 12" tall K using the Chalkboard Cartridge and the Type Candy Cartridge. I can't figure out how to set the Expression correctly. It keeps telling me the letter is too large.

I am using vinyl that is 12" X 24".

Can anyone tell me what my settings should be on the Expression?

Also, I am just doing this on the Expression as I don't know how to use Craft Room yet.

Thank you for any help or direction to look for help

You can't get every image to 12 inches {actually 11.5 inches because there is 1/4 inch on each side of the mat that the blade can't reach} because the Cricut increases {or decreases} the height and width of the image to keep it in proportion. The "K" on Chalkboard Fonts is wider, so it hits the 12 inch width before it hits the 12 inch height.

Using CCR and your 12 x 24 mat, you could rotate the image and get a bigger "K". It looks to me like the "K" from Type Candy fits.

You will love CCR when you start using it.
