Credit Boosts and the Design Store

Silhouette Design Store

The Silhouette Design Store is an online marketplace with nearly 100,000 designs from artists around the world. Most designs in the store are $0.99 and fonts are $2.99. Once you purchase a design or font, you can use it as many times as you want without having to connect to the internet to access your designs. This means that while designing in Silhouette Studio®, there is no lag time between performing an action and having it happen on your design screen. And if your computer crashes or some other accident happens, don’t worry! Any design you have download from the Silhouette Design Store is recoverable. Plus, if you store your designs on the Silhouette Cloud, you will never lose anything and you can access your designs from multiple devices.

How Can I Buy Designs From the Design Store?

There are two ways to buy designs from the Silhouette Design Store.

  • À la carte
  • Subscription

À la carte is a pay-as-you-go system. You can purchase a design or two whenever you want using your credit card, PayPal® account, or download card.

The second way to purchase designs is through a subscription. Subscriptions give you a certain number of credits to use each month. If you download more than a handful of shapes each month, Design Store subscriptions can provide significant savings over the pay-as-you-go service. For example, a basic subscription of $113.89/year will give you $25.00 worth of designs each month! Subscriptions credits can be used to buy any design, even ones on sale or in the clearance section. Unspent credits at the end of the month rollover and are available for up to 60 days.

What is a Credit Boost?

You already know that a Silhouette Design Store subscription can offer huge savings for anyone who downloads frequently. For the more casual downloader, we’re introducing Credit Boosts. A Credit Boost is a great way to load up on Design Store credit and save money at the same time. The more you buy, the more you save—up to 50%! Credit Boost credits never expire so you can use them whenever you’d like. You can even spend your credits during design sales to get even more value. If you’re a subscriber, you can use Credit Boosts, too. They’re the perfect way to supplement your credits during those months when you want to download even more designs than usual.

Who Can Benefit from Credit Boosts?

You can! Whether you buy one design at a time or you have a subscription, Credit Boosts can be beneficial to you. If you know you will eventually be spending $50.00 in Design Store purchases, purchase a Credit Boost for $30.00. For $30.00, you will get $50.00 worth of credit on your account to buy any of the nearly 100,000 designs in the Design Store. That is 40% off every single design! Plus, credits never expire.

If you don’t download enough to justify a subscription, Credit Boosts the way to go! You can save up to 50% on each design when using a credit boost compared to buying designs á la carte. Credit Boosts gives a freedom that subscriptions don’t. They don’t expire and they don’t have monthly limits, so you can buy a Credit Boost and download designs when you want them.

If you are an avid downloader, the subscription system is still the best value. But if you want to download more than your subscription allotment for the month, buy a Credit Boost! This can save you money on any additional designs you may want to download during the month.

How Do Credit Boosts Work?

When you purchase a Credit Boost, you will still buying the designs à la carte. But, you will have bought the credits at a discounted rate, so you will be getting a discount on every single design that you download. Plus, you can pair your Credit Boosts with Design Store sales to save even more money on each design! So, if you download inconsistently or if you just don’t download very many designs, the Credit Boost is the best fit for you.
