Introduction

The all-new Infusible Ink system by Cricut delivers seamlessly smooth, professional-quality transfers that become one with your material – and last a lifetime.



The first thing I need to tell you is I am a crafter through and through and have been for years. Anyway, I saw a teaser just last week about a new product from Cricut.

I could not wait to find out what it was because I love every Cricut product I have ever tried. When I found out it was Infusible Ink I was really excited. My biggest issue with iron-projects is they never seem to last.

I used to become frustrated when something I worked so hard on started to peel in just a couple of months. Not only is this ink wash-proof, flake-proof and peel-proof, but I can make even more unique and creative designs now.

When I realized how long my iron-ons would last I did the happy dance. Literally. Every time I use my EasyPress 2, I can transfer the ink right onto the blanks just by ironing them.

This is the smoothest ink I have ever used. It infuses right into my blanks. This means I finally have a more permanent solution. I doubt I will ever use a traditional iron-on again.

Have you ever become frustrated because your iron-ons peeled or just seemed to flake away? Are you excited when a new crafting product becomes available? If you have, you are going to love the new Infusible Ink by Cricut.

The Ideal Product

Do you enjoy making gifts for your friends and family? Are you always searching for something new and exciting? If you answered yes, this is the ideal product. You can make incredible gifts. Do not forget to make something fun for yourself.

Cricut’s Infusible Ink has revolutionized heat transfers. You can finally achieve the professional results you have been dreaming about. The ink sits right on top of your material.

You can use Infusible Ink for t-shirts, backpacks, cushions, tote bags and so much more. Just let your imagination run wild. You can wash what you make without losing the luster of the colors. You will not have to worry about peeling or fading.

The Items Being Released with the Cricut’s Infusible Ink

There are two sensational new items that have been released with Cricut’s Infusible Ink. The first is Infusible Ink pens and markers. These are some of the coolest things I have ever seen. The possibilities are almost endless.

You can use your creativity to make your own unique designs. All you need are the Cricut drawing features and a blank transfer sheet. If you are really creative, you can even draw freehand.

The second new item is the transfer sheets. These are sheets of patterned and solid ink. Just use your Cricut to cut them out.

The Way Infusible Ink Works

You start by choosing your Infusible Ink material. You can either create your own blank or use a pre-designed pattern or color. At first, I was disappointed because the colors looked dim.

Once I ironed them on I was delighted. They really pop when they are activated. If you want to draw on your own sheet, you get to use the Infusible Ink markers or pens. Just be sure to choose the right colors for your design space.

Make sure your ink is side up before you start cutting out your design. Your EasyPress 2 makes it easy to infuse the colors right into the print. I even heard Cricut is going to release their own blanks.

Can you imagine having blanks specifically made to use with Infusible Ink? If you are new to crafting, you may not understand the difference between Infusible Ink and iron-on yet.

An iron-on is used on a blank. You can use it for a lot of different surfaces. Even something like canvas or wood. The difference with Infusible Ink is it actually becomes part of your blank. This is the reason it will not crack or peel.

There are different uses for every material. A good example is iron-on is still preferable for specialty effects such as holographic or glitter or for layering.

The Variety of Projects You Can Make

There is virtually no limit to the kinds of projects you can make. You can use Cricut’s Infusible Ink for shirts, costers, onesies, bags and more for creative, unique and personal iron-on projects.

You can make all of the same projects you enjoyed in the past. The difference is it is easier, more professional looking and you will not have to worry about fading, cracking or peeling for a really long time.

If you are excited about the line of blanks Cricut will be releasing, you are not alone. They have been tested specifically for numerous uses including t-shirts, coasters, and bags.

I have no idea how much they will cost because I have not seen anything about it yet. I figure the price will be about $15 because that is what Cricut sells their iron-on for.

You can use the Infusible Ink with all of the Cricut machines including the EasyPress. The ink was actually created for the EasyPress 2. This is because some of the blanks need a higher temperature than what is offered with the original EasyPress.
