Since becoming more involved with Cricut over the past few years, Cricut users have asked for a specific feature loud and clear: an easier way to curve text. Previously, users could curve text in the Design Space program by ungrouping each letter of a word of text and manually curve the text. This could be time consuming and tedious. The Design Space developers at Cricut listened, and now curving text couldn’t be easier!
Within the Cricut Design Space text editing panel, a “Curve Text” icon now appears anytime a user types a line of text. The user can click the icon and use the slider to curve the text in either a concave or convex shape. The text can also be curved into a circle. It really is as simple as that!
I created a quick video to demonstrate how to curve text in Cricut Design Space. Watch it below to see for yourself how easy creating custom text for your projects can be.
Keep in mind that the curving text option only works for a single line of text. For instance, it you type a sentence of text that is in rows, the curve text icon will not appear.
I have heard users comment that they believe this feature will take their projects to the next level! It definitely takes the guess work out of curving text. Users can also insert a image or shape and curve a line of text around the image. I will definitely be using this for iron-on vinyl projects in the near future. My friend Jessica from Everyday Party Magazine has already used this feature on a cute shirt. She circled her text around an adorable dog image cut with the new Cricut Patterned Iron-on.
