How to use a Cricut EasyPress for perfect results

When Cricut told me they were releasing the EasyPress 2 I jumped at the opportunity to blog all about it! I was lucky enough to get access to the first EasyPress before it released and it was a game-changer. I’m even more excited about the EasyPress 2. It comes in a variety of different sizes making it perfect for whichever project you have planned.

The EasyPress that’s pictured above is 12″ x 10″ making it ideal for T-shirts, blankets and large tote bags. It heats up even fast than before and it has an auto-shut off feature. Which lets be honest, is a necessity for us busy moms! I’m always getting distracted mid-project.

How to Use an EasyPress 2 Instead of a Heat Press

The EasyPress has adjustable heat up to 400℉.  Now you can create professional-looking apparel in less than 60 seconds. The best part is the Cricut team has done all of the hard work for you and they’ve rigorously tested every type of Iron-On with every type of substrate and provided you with a chart for perfect results!

It’s amazingly simple to use. On the left hand side tap the power button, then tap the temperature button. You can increase or decrease the temperature by pressing the plus or minus button. Next, select the timer button located below the temperature. You can increase or decrease the timer by using the plus or minus button. Make sure to refer to the EasyPress chart for perfect results. Select the green Cricut button and the EasyPress will begin counting down for you. You don’t need to worry about projects getting ruined from too little or too much time now. Isn’t that SO nice?
