How To Use Any Pen With Your Cricut Machine

For those of you who may not know, inside of clamp A on your Cricut machine you have a pen adapter. And this adapter is actually removable!

That means you can change out the Cricut adapter for new ones that will hold a variety of different brand pens.

Even if one of the adapters is labeled “BIC markers” to use with BIC pens, that doesn’t mean there may not be other brand pens that work with that adapter!

I discovered that my Tombow duel brush pens work with the Uni-ball Signo adapter. Can you say, hello flawless brush calligraphy?!
