Thorough Product Review of Cricut EasyPress 2 + Iron-on Project Tips

Are you thinking about buying the Cricut EasyPress 2? If so, then you’ll want to read all that I have to say about this amazing must-have Cricut product. The Easypress 2 makes iron-on projects easier and is a fabulous option for your Cricut Infusible Ink projects.

What is the EasyPress 2?

The EasyPress 2 is a device that allows you to place your iron-on and Infusible Ink designs onto the material of your choice. With an even disbursement of heat, it’s a much more reliable option than using your household iron. Iron-on vinyl and other Cricut projects require heat to transfer your completed design onto the material of your choice.

That’s what the EasyPress 2 is made to do, transfer your designs that require a heat transfer onto your projects quickly and evenly. Since each iron-on or Cricut Infusible Ink project requires a different level of heat and pressure, the EasyPress 2 helps remove any variables that arrive when you’re using an iron or other heating option to transfer your designs onto your material.
What is the difference between EasyPress 2 and EasyPress?

The EasyPress 2 heats up about 25% faster than the original EasyPress, it also reaches a temperature of 400 degrees. The original EasyPress only goes to 350 degrees. The medium size EasyPress 2 takes just two minutes to eat up, and the smaller EasyPress 2 takes a minute to heat up.

EasyPress 2 Tips and Tricks

In conclusion, the EasyPress 2 makes it easier to create your special projects using the Cricut Design Space with ease. There are some tips and tricks I’ve learned during my time using the EasyPress 2 and here are some of those tips and tricks I wish to pass along to you:
• Work on a firm surface and always pre-press your material before transferring your Cricut Design onto the material.
• Use an EasyPress mat to ensure your heat is transferred evenly onto your material for the best Cricut craft results.
• Always use a protective sheet between your iron-on transfer vinyl and the heat press to avoid having any material melt onto your EasyPress 2.
• Keep EasyPress 2 firmware updated at all times.

That’s all I have to share for today about the Cricut EasyPress 2. I think you have enough information to get started thinking about using this fabulous device for your next iron-on or Infusible Ink project. I can’t wait to see what you create.

    Love the idea of this. I recently bought a small draw string bag for headphones and it was a simple bag with a simple design on front but it wasn’t cheap. So thought it’d be good to make my own and sell them on Etsy – this machine would be great for adding the design to them.
