This is a common question we get asked all the time, we are pleased to confirm, All GM Crafts vinyl will cut on the Cricut Joy, please refer to our own tried and tested cut settings that can be found on our website blog click here.  Please do follow the test cut advice on this link, using a small triangle or star is best approx. 2-2.5cm in size, as this saves time, waste and any frustration for you, some vinyl and some designs will not cut fine or intricate fonts or details and this is why the test cut is so important- as this will help you determine if the design needs a tweak and the blog explains fully how to do this, and how to create a custom setting too. Most products need to be used with the Cricut mat for the machine, unless they are matless compatible, or Smart Media.

We also have our own brand of exclusive GM Crafty Vinyl in a matt free size compatible for the joy- click here– allowing you to cut mat free in a much longer length.


Our new range of Crafty Vinyl is a self adhesive vinyl that is exclusive to us, with a recyclable release (backing) liner that allows it to be used with Mat free compatible cutting machines, including but not limited to the  Silhouette machines with and without the roll feeder and the Cricut Joy, Maker 3, and Explore 3, it can also be used on a cutting mat for those wishing to use up off cuts or on machines that do not offer Mat free cutting capabilities.- Please see our cutting recommendations Blog for further details on settings and test cuts prior to use that we recommend click here.

We offer this in a variety of choices of colours and designs as well as different sizes and these can all be found if you click here

What else can my Cricut Joy cut?

The Cricut Joy can cut many materials, however unless using a matless compatible, or smart media you must use the cutting mat, it is worth noting Cricut official mats and blades only are recommended, due to their calibration and set up with the machine. Most materials will need cutting down to size to fit on the mat, this can be done with scissors, guillotine, or even a craft knife as appropriate.
