If you are looking for the perfect lamp for your DIY projects, Cricut now has the solution for you!

Indeed, Cricut launches today its new Cricut Bright 360 LED lamp created and designed especially for all your projects! Whether it’s for scrapbooking, sewing, model making, jewelry making or simply weeding and so much more!

In fact, I say ITS, but I should rather say THEIR, because yes, the lamp comes in two models, a table lamp and a floor lamp.

See more and do more!

If your work table is poorly lit and you tend to tear your eyes out on your projects, you’ll appreciate all the features of both Cricut Bright 360 models:

  • LED lamp offering bright and uniform light, without shadows or hot spots.

  • A large and wide lamp head that illuminates up to 4 square feet of work surface (that’s 4 Cricut 12×12 mat (30 cm x 30 cm) placed in the shape of a square!?)

  • 4 points of articulation with counterweight allowing easy movement in all directions.

  • Dimmer allowing adjustment up to 1500 lux for the table lamp and 3000 lux for the floor lamp
  • A second dimmer allows the adjustment of the temperature (colour) of the light. Adjustable from warm (yellow, 2900K) to cold (white 5200K). To compare, the daylight is 4400K.

  • Colour rendering index at 95+ (in short, it means that instead of going under the sunlight to find out if it’s navy blue or black you have in hand, you’ll know it directly under the lamp! ?)

Experience optimal lighting!

Both models of Cricut Bright 360 have an array of LED bulbs in the lamp head. These long-lasting LEDs have been tested to last more than 40,000 hours. (I did the math, it’s 4.5 years if it stays on 24 hours a day!!! ?) So no need to worry about changing the bulbs!

In addition, since they are LED lights, the lamp will never get hot. The lamp can therefore be handled easily by the head and moved in all directions.

As the Cricut Bright 360 offers equivalent light (and even more) to daylight (4000K), they are also the ideal lamps for taking photos and videos giving them a professional look!

Where and when can I get the Cricut Bright 360?

At the moment, the Cricut Bright 360s are only available in Canada and the United States and can be ordered as of January 27, 2022 on the website.

Which model to choose?

Well, only you can know! But here is some food for thought:

  • How big is your work table? Would you have enough space to add a lamp with an 8.5-inch (22 cm) base?
  • To enjoy the full movement of the lamp, I estimate that it will take a clearance of at least 12 inches (30 cm) behind the lamp (I am waiting for additional information on the subject). As in the photo above, it would therefore be better if the lamp was not completely against the wall.
  • Do not forget that in full extension, the lamp has a horizontal span of 39 inches.
  • If you think you can give it a double utility (I know that’s what I have in mind!) take the floor lamp so you can rotate it, for example, between your work desk and a reading chair! ?
