Are you trying to cut each individual letter, like A D A M, or are you trying to cut the name with the letters attached, kind of like cursive?

Ideally I would like to cut the letters out attached if possible , but if not I would like to just be able to cut the entire name like "Adam" all at the same time

If you are using a cricut cartridge wth letters you would need to use the design studio program to connect the letters. If you have make the cut program you can join the letters in it. I use make the cut for all my designs. It is known as MTC. It is very easy to use, you never need to buy cartridges and it is very affordable. You can use any font on your computer or you can go online and get lots of fonts for free.

ditto. Teh Cricut by itself will only cut individual letters. I have Sure Cuts A Lot, which I'm not fond of, but you do need a design program to hook the letters together.

Thanks so much for the replies . I was afraid that this would be the case. Going to check out MTC and SCAL

It's what you call "weld" the letters together. Very easy but you do have to get the MTC or Sure Cuts alot. I have them both and love them both. If you own Cricut Design Studio there is the weld option to use on this and you can select one of your alphabet cartridges.

It's in the property box window. One of the little boxes you get when you start SCAL.
