What do I get with my purchase?
Each cuttable file here at CrowsLanding contains files in SVG, JPEG, and PNG format, compressed into a zipped folder for ease of downloading. If you are unfamiliar with zipped folders, please visit our How-To Guide for step-by-step instructions on how to unzip your folder.
How do I get my purchase?
Once your payment is confirmed, you will receive a confirmation email containing links to download each purchased listing. Alternatively, please know you have 30 days to download these files before you no longer have access. So please save the files on your hard drive before the 30 day period.
What is a zipped file, and how do I open it?
Everything you purchase here will come to you in a compressed format, otherwise known as a zipped file. Compressed files take up less storage space, and can be transferred to you more quickly and efficiently than uncompressed files.
Opening your zipped file will vary depending on the computer system you use, so we’ve broken it down here for you:
Your purchase can be found in your browser in the Downloads folder. Simply double-click the zipped folder to open it and reveal the uncompressed files within. You can then copy the files and save them to your desktop or any folder on your computer.
Windows 7, 8.1, and 10
Locate the zipped folder that you want to unzip (extract) files or folders from.
Do one of the following:
To unzip a single file or folder, open the zipped folder, then drag the file or folder from the zipped folder to a new location.
To unzip all the contents of the zipped folder, press and hold (or right-click) the folder, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.
Can I use my mobile device (phone or tablet) to download my purchase?
No, you cannot use a mobile device to download zipped folders, as these devices do not have the capability to deal with these types of files. If you attempt to download from a mobile device, this will simply use up your downloads without any files to show for it. Instead, please download all purchases from a computer.
How do I know which file type I need?
This will vary, depending on the machine you use, and how you plan to use the images. Let’s break it down:
Cricut Expression 1 and Expression 2 Machines
The Expression series operates primarily via physical cartridges that you plug into the machine, as well as via an online portal called Cricut Craft Room. Please be aware that Craft Room can only use .ccr file types, which Cricut and Provo Craft have exclusive distribution rights to. With that in mind, you cannot use any of the files sold here at SVG Salon with Craft Room.
However, the Expression machines are able to be connected to a program called Sure Cuts A Lot, which can use SVG files, which we offer in all of our listings. Should you have this program, please ensure that you have verified that the version you have works with your machine prior to purchasing any files. Currently, only Versions 1 and 2 will transfer files to an Expression machine.
Cricut Explore, Explore One, and Explore Air Machines
The Explore series accepts both physical cartridges, as well as digital files via Cricut Design Space. All of our listings here at CrowsLanding are compatible with Design Space, using the SVG file.
Silhouette Cameo, Curio, and Portrait Machines
The Silhouette Cameo, Curio, and Portrait machines all use Silhouette Studio software, which is broken down into two editions: Basic and Designer.
Silhouette Studio Basic Edition
This software is a free download that comes with your machine. If you use the Basic Edition of Studio, please use the JPEG file included in the listings. Please note that these files will take more time to cut on your machine, and can sometimes result in a slightly less “clean” cut than the SVG files. This is due to the makeup of the file type itself, and is not a reflection on the quality of the design. Additionally, JPEG files will show up in your software and you will need to trace these files to make them cuttable.
Silhouette Studio Designer Edition
This is a paid upgrade to the basic software that came with your machine. Here at CrowsLanding, I highly recommend purchasing this upgrade, as it enables you to use the SVG files included in the listings we offer. You will find that using an SVG results in cuts that are cleaner, faster, and easier to manage visually, as each layer loads in full color.
Sure Cuts A Lot
The Sure Cuts A Lot program is compatible with all of the listings in this shop using the SVG files included in your download.
Make the Cut!
The Make the Cut! program is compatible with all of the listings in this shop using the SVG files included in your download.
The ScanNCutCanvas program is compatible with all of the listings in this shop using the SVG files included in your download.
Both the JPEG and PNG files in the listings here at CrowsLanding can be printed with any standard printer, should you wish to make a framed print of our work, or print it with iron on transfer paper.
