this is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

We are excited to be apart of what is truly the NEXT HOTTEST THING in crafting! Allow us to introduce you to 

Infusible Ink by Cricut!

Infusible ink is a revolutionary product that gives creatives of all skill level to personalize and create projects with vibrancy and permanence!

While Iron-on allows you to create projects using vinyl which can be susceptible to peeling and cracking, Infusible Ink is permanent becoming one with your fabric and/or blank.  It’s something you have to truly see to believe so lets get started with a couple of projects! We chose the Cricut Infusible Ink Compatible Tote and the Cricut Infusible Ink Coasters.

Here is what you need to get started with both projects:

Cricut Infusible Ink Compatible Tote

To make our tote, we chose the Infusible Ink Tote & Water Color Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet and used an image from the Black History Month collection in Cricut Design Space. Since we didn’t need the actual layers, we welded the image to create a silhouette.

Now that we’ve prepped and sized our image, it’s time to cut! A few things to keep in mind prior to cutting your image:

  • Load your Infusible Ink Transfer Sheets shinny side down. The pattern will be right side up!
  • The Cricut Maker makes choosing your material simple without the hassle of guess work by simply selecting Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet in your material settings . If using a Cricut Explore model, turn Smart Set Dial to Custom first; the pressure setting is 260.

Unlike Iron-on that requires “weeding” with your weeding tool, your design is “revealed” on your Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet using your hands! (Make sure your hands are COMPLETELY dry and free of oil). Gently roll the design to make the cut lines appear more visible and carefully remove the negative pieces leaving your design on the liner.

Now that we have our design, it’s time to make magic happen with the Cricut Easypress! Each blank has it’s own settings which again alleviates the guess work.

Since we’re using the Infusible Ink Tote, set your Cricut EasyPress to 385° F/ and 15 seconds.

This is also the part where your cardstock, butcher paper and lint roller comes into play:

  • 1. Place cardstock on top of Cricut EasyPress Mat, then position both inside tote. The cardstock will protect your mat and project.
  • 2. Use a fresh adhesive to lint-roll the entire surface. Even minuscule debris or fibers may create imperfections in the final transfer.
  • 3. Cover blank with butcher paper.
  • 4. Do not skip this step. Preheat application area to remove moisture and wrinkles that result in unwanted effects.
  • 5. Remove butcher paper and let tote cool completely.
  • 6. Place your design face down on tote. The clear liner should be on top and the printed side of the Infusible Ink Transfer Sheet should be against the tote.
  • 7. Place the butcher paper on top of the design.
  • 8. Press with Cricut EasyPress for 40 seconds
  • 9. When the time is up, slowly lift press. Try not to move the stack, including the butcher paper.
  • 10. Let project cool completely. Slowly remove butcher paper, then slowly remove the liner


Cricut Infusible Ink Compatible Coasters

The process for using the Infusible Ink for the coasters is very similar to the steps above when we made our tote.

Here we chose images from the Coffee Helps collection in Cricut Design Space and resized to 2.7 inches wide to fit the coasters

Follow the same steps above that we used to cut our design for the tote.

Now its time to make MORE magic happen with our EasyPress! Here are where things differ depending on the Cricut Infusible Ink product you are using.

Since we’re using the Infusible Ink Coaster, set your Cricut EasyPress 2 to 400° F and 60 seconds.

  • 1. Use a lint-free cloth to remove any debris from coaster.
  • 2. Cover Cricut EasyPress Mat with cardstock to protect your mat.
  • 3. Place design face-down on coaster with clear liner on top.
  • 4. Place coaster onto cardstock and mat with design facing up.
  • 5. Cover coaster with butcher paper. (included with your Infusible Ink sheets)
  • 6. Press using correct time, temp, and pressure settings from Cricut
  • 7. EasyPress Heat Transfer Guide. For this project press at 400° F/ 205° C for 60 seconds using no pressure.
  • 8. When the beep sounds, slowly lift press. Try not to move the stack, including butcher paper.
  • 9. CAUTION: Coaster will be very hot. Let cool completely before handling. Then slowly remove butcher paper, tape, and design.

    Thank you for this detailed blog. I was able to watch the launch. Your blog helped visualize it better. So thank you. I do have questions however as to limitations i.e. do the shirts have to be Cricut product? Can a regular nom-Cricut heat press be used?

    Thanks again
