Note: Cricut no longer manufactures or sells pens for these machines, but it is possible that other vendors may still have stock.
Gel Pens: Cricut gel pens came with a special housing. Simply insert the pen into the housing as instructed in the pen packaging, and then replace the blade housing with the gel pen housing. Your images will then be drawn instead of cut.
Cricut Inks: Cricut Inks pens were formatted to be used in place of the blade housing. No special housing is needed to use these pens with your Expression or other machines. Simply replace the blade housing with the Cricut Inks pen and your images will be drawn instead of cut.
Important: These pens are not compatible with Cricut Explore or Cricut Maker machines.
