ADDED 7/23: You can see the Patent Pictures and INFO here!
Looks like you can choose to print, cut or print and cut– and possibly merge images with the machine? Also looks like it will still take our catridges–whew!
Hmmm…we know ProvoCraft is coming out with some kind of new machine in time for CHA this month. But did you also know that…
According to recent trademark filings with the US Patent & Trademark office, that machine may be an offering called the Cricut Imagine that will both cut and print – a first for the company as well as for the scrapbook industry’s highly competitive electronic die cutting segment.
On March 19th, attorneys for Provo Craft filed an application to receive a trademark on the term “Cricut Imagine”. The description for the usage of the trademarked term reads:
Electronic cutting and printing machines for cutting and printing on paper, cardboard, plastic, and other materials in flat form, and accessories therefor; blades for electronic cutting machines
There’s also a reference to the term being used to market “Computer software containing fonts and graphics for use in operating electronic cutting and printing machines for cutting and printing on paper, cardboard, plastic, and other materials in flat form” as well as “plastic cutting mats”.
So….could it be the big machine coming out at CHA–I don’t know, but I do know that I will be there to take first hand pictures for you! 🙂
I did find this picture floating around the Cricut Circle Messageboard. Could it be?
