Hi Dandi Crafters! Happy New Year! A while back I posted about needing to upgrade my Sure Cuts Alot version 1 to a more updated program. I asked you my readers what you thought and which you used. I was pleased that so many took time to help me out and post. It really helped me make the decision! I upgraded to MAKE THE CUT!! YEA!!!!
I guess the main reason I went with this program is the print and cut capability that Make The Cut offers. It was a real adventure purchasing MTC, however. When I went to purchase it from the site, it applied tax which although was not advertise I was OK with. Then when I went to check out it applied the tax AGAIN!! I tried purchasing from the site directly and like 3 different affiliate sites too. I finally ended up purchasing from scrappydew.com. Rob helped me with the glitch on the website REALLY FAST. He also gives you a starter pack of SVG files to get you started too. Which is very cool. I have been too busy to look at them yet but just the fact that you get a little something extra is cool.
I am really liking the program so far. It is easy to move around in and seems pretty straight forward. The only thing I find odd is picking the speed to cut. This is what put me off about the program when I was in trial mode. It cuts very slow and is rather choppy even though in the end the cut does look good, however they say that this has improved a great deal. I am sure once I figure out how to speed up the cutting and not have mtc tell me try again this time turning down your speed. I will be very happy with it. Right now I export everything to SVG and cut in SCAL 1. LOL. Once you get used to a program it is hard to stop cold turkey. LOL
So in the next foreseeable future Take Out Tuesday downloads will not change, they will be available as they have always been in SVG format and SCAL 1 scut format. I am sure that will change as I learn my way around and end up preferring Make The Cut more and more.
Thanks for everyone who stopped by to help me make the decision. I am really happy with my purchase.
