The cricut expression is bigger i know that for sure and cuts larger sizes of your design--it depends on what you are needing it for.

I bought it to mainly cut fabric, and tried it out on my friends and since buying my own, I haven't had the time to use it. I plan on selling mine--brand new and with 2 cartridges and extras that came with the bundle for $200.

I have the expression. Larger cutting surface and a few more options. Yes, it can cut fabric but you should back it with wonderlite or some similiar iron on stabilizer.

the cricut is great for cutting SOOmuch it worth the investment if you use it. I recommend getting the SCAL program with it, you wont ever have to waste 75$ on cartiages again!

The expression is wonderful and so versatile! Make-the-cut is a newer software that I have and love it. www.make-the-cut.com

I have not bought a cartridge since I got this! I want them, but anything I want is pretty much free or really cheap on the net.
The expression is nice when you have a program like this because you can design everything right on the computer and know where to put the paper. Much less guessing and waste!
Good luck!
