Cricut Infusible Ink will change your life! For all of you Cricut fans out there, this is something that blew my mind! I love this new option for use with my Cricut craft projects and am excited to tell you everything you need to know about this option.
What is infusible ink made of?
Cricut infusible ink is essentially an iron-on ink. The process is much similar to iron-on vinyl, but the infusible ink is transferred into the fabric, not onto the fabric. With the name infusible ink, one would assume that it’s infused into the fabric, and that is very true. The infusible ink for your Cricut projects will essential dye the material that you’re working with. This process occurs when the heat is placed over the infusible ink design that you’ve created using Cricut Design Space.
What can I use Cricut infusible ink on?
You’ll notice that the infusible ink comes on sheets of solid ink. These sheets of infusible ink include solid colors or pattern options to use for your next Cricut creation. You’ll notice that your Cricut infusible ink sheets look like iron-on vinyl, but the sheets are a little thicker overall. Infusible inks will work with any compatible material, it’s best to read the package to make certain you’re purchasing the right Cricut infusible ink options for your Cricut crafts.
