Celebrate! The Cricut Offset feature has been added to the recent update of Cricut Design Space APP v5.6 This new feature is available for your IOS devices, including iPad & iPhones. I am beyond excited to show you how to offset on iPhone and iPad.
Just a quick side note for Android users. This offset feature is coming soon, just not yet. For Android users, you can use this method to make offsets while you wait for your update
Some may refer to offset as a shadow effect but I will only be using the wording of offset to avoid any confusion.
Also, if you are a new Cricut user, you may be wondering what all the fuss is about. The Cricut Offset feature has been available in the Cricut Design Space Desktop version for quite some time. Creators who did not have a laptop or desktop computer have been anxiously waiting for this exciting Cricut Design Space Application Update v5.6
This recent update also includes the addition of “Guides” for iPad & iPhone users too. I show how to use both new features in my YouTube video using my iPad.
You can watch the short video or just below I show the exact same steps using screenshots of the process.

WHERE IS OFFSET IN CRICUT DESIGN SPACE ON IPAD AND IPHONE
The Cricut Offset feature is located via the “Edit” option on both the iPad and iPhone. Please note the “Offset” button will not work until you have an image or text selected first.
STEP BY STEP TUTORIAL: HOW TO USE OFFSET ON IPAD
Select your image or text on your screen by tapping it. In the image below, you can see the tulip on the right has been selected. Then select “Edit”.
Next, select “Offset”
There are four easy steps to Offset
- Move the slider to the right for Offset. Move the slider to the left for “Inset”
- Select which corner design you prefer.
- Turn the weld feature on or off.
- Tap Done
Your offset will default to a black color. You can change the color by selecting “Operation” then choose your color, next tap “Apply”
The photo below shows the completed offset. I also tapped on the layers button so you can see it there too. When done with your design, you can click on “Make It”.
That is it! See how easy it is to Offset on Cricut App using an iPhone or iPad. Celebrate!
At this point, you may be wondering the difference between the “Weld” option is either on or off. The picture above I had the weld slider turned on.
The picture below shows how the offset would look if I had the Weld slider turned off.
As you can see in the layers panel, it offsets the tulip heads separate from the flower stem. Now this could be awesome if you only wanted an offset for the tulip heads and wanted to delete the offset for the flower stems. So it really depends on how you want your design to look.
I love the fact we choose to have the weld slider on or off. Below you can see when I moved the images apart so you can see the pieces better.
I know you all will come to love using Offset using your iPad and iPhones. You waited patiently and it’s here. Yay!
