Comic Con Africa is excited to announce an epic partnership with Cricut. With their tools that have completely transformed the way that people think about crafting and creating, there couldn’t be a more perfect match than Cricut and Comic Con Africa fans.
Cricut makes at-home cutting machines and heat presses – both incredibly versatile tools for Cosplayers, artists, and crafters to bring their designs and dreams to reality. “Part of Comic Con Africa’s commitment to our fans is to expose them to the latest tools and equipment. This is why we have decided to partner with Cricut. The machines they bring to the crafter’s table takes crafting to the next level – a level with results that would otherwise be impossible without expensive industrial machinery or third parties. Cricut enables professional quality cutting in the home and we can’t wait to see what our fans will do with Cricut” says Carla Massmann, Comic Con Africa’s Show Director.
Cricut is bringing loads of exciting features to Comic Con Africa to excite fans as our official Artist Alley partner, including our most epic Artist Alley Spotlight stage to date. This is where fans will engage with local and international artists in Q&As and watch live draws.
Cricut’s space on the show room floor will be a highlight for fans who want to take their creativity to the next level and it will be a chance to see how incredibly far your creativity can take you. With machines on display for test run, experts on hand will show you how to make the most of them, this is the place for fans to see how they can bring their ideas to life. Think precision cutting for Cosplaying props, custom apparel, personalised everyday items, stickers, art, and beyond.
Cricut Director of Sales & Marketing Middle East, Turkey and Africa, Martin Kruger, says “The Cricut team is super excited to partner with Comic Con Africa this year. Our brand is fun, vibey and growing super-fast globally, much like Comic Con. From the beginning our dream was to help people lead creative lives by providing them with tools and a platform to make DIY project fun, easy and accessible.
Our members are the heart and soul of what we do as a company and we can’t wait to host them at Comic Con as well as open up our world of creativity to so many new members that don’t know about our brand as yet. Our super passionate ambassadors will be ready to welcome everyone into the Cricut world and take you on a fun creative journey.
We believe Cricut should be in every home as is can provide a creative outlet for anyone. The opportunities are endless where you can simply use Cricut to personalise and customise your world or turn your hobby into a full blown side hustle or micro business. We have hit the South African market with a storm and there is so much to look forward to as we are just getting started.”
