So ... I was looking at another blog the other day who's owner was touting the wonders of these new pen's that work in the Cricut. They are magnetic and the holder for them fit's in the Cricut just like the one that Provo Craft makes.
I haven't bought any markers or pens yet, because you have to buy the holder too. And the whole thing is rather expensive.
These new pens are not made by Provo Craft, who has been conspicuous in their silence about them. So I sent PC an email to ask them about the magnetic properties of these pens and whether or not the use of magnets will harm my Cricut, and if it would, would that then void my warranty.
The response I got was "these pens are not made by Provo Craft," (I knew that)and "the use of any non PC item will indeed void the warrenty."
Well that was part of the question. But they didn't answer me about the magnetic issue. I know that magnets can do damage to lots of things. But I still don't have the answer to that. However, I guess I'm not going to use the other pens, even though they are cheaper. I just don't want to do anything that will put my machine in jeopardy. It is rather an expensive thing to have to replace!
So anyone out there who has these pens. If something goes wrong with your machine (I sure hope not!), maybe you shouldn't tell them about using anything other than PC add ons. I don't mean to promote lying, I just want you all to know about the company's stand on this issue.
Anyway, I guess I'll save my pennies to get the pen holder. Living on a fixed income is a real pain in the pocketbook!!! I wish some of our polititions, or maybe even all of them, from the President on down, should live for a year on the average Social Security income. Maybe they'd understand what it's like to be the average
OK well, enough whining for today. I hope everyone is having a great day, week, month, year... life! :)
