This Cricut font cartridge is easy to use and is perfect for scrapbooking formal events or European vacation attractions such as Buckingham Palace, Changing of the Guard, etc. The "blackout" feature looks fantastic! The only thing I don't like about any of the Cricut cartridges is that the "shadow" feature produces such a narrow shadow as to be barely visible. The Wal-Mart price is significantly lower than Michael's, A.C. Moore, and Cricut.com (with free Wal-Mart site-to-store shipping).
This is one of the few Cricut cartridges that does not include a handbook, mainly because the font and images are limited to what's on the keypad. However, if you love the "Old English" look (as I do), you will love this cartridge. It does have that medival or gothic appeal with alphabet and numbers in that style. In addition to the font, the images include a fleur-de-lis, shield, scrolls, 2 frames, and a Bookmark option. The three phrases are "The", "and" and "to".
My scrapbooking and card making efforts includes a lot of European/Medieval pages. Blackletter is the perfect font for this.
I had 2 layouts waiting for this alphabet so I could finish them -- a Halloween one and a Renaissance Faire one. This alphabet is perfect for these themes and cut out all the details perfectly even at fairly small sizes. I'm looking forward to using it on something less typical now!
The product is the same no matter where you get it but WalMart's price is the best I've found. With ship to store I saved shipping costs.
