How to Upload a SVG
First of all, you may be wondering…
What the heck is a “SVG”?
Well, it stands for “Scalable Vector Graphic” and is just a fancy name for the file type that works best with cutting machines like Cricut, Silhouette, ScanNCut, etc (almost all cutting machine types can use SVG files).
SVGs are highly preferred over JPG or PNG images for a couple reasons:
- You can upload them as layered designs where you can easily ungroup the various pieces and cut them out of different colors.
- They can be resized to any size without getting pixelated. Pretty cool, right?
Now that you understand what they are and why they are the best files to use, let’s walk through how to upload them into your cutting software!
