How To Print On Fabric With The Cricut
It is very important to prepare your compatible infusion ink blank. Go over the entire printing area with a lint roller. Check heat settings and all steps online at Cricut Heat Guide.
Following the heat guide instructions, set the EasyPress 2 and preheat your blank.
- Place a small towel, then a piece of cardstock inside the bag.
- Place design face down on top.
- Cover design with butcher paper and press with light pressure at 385°F for 60 seconds. When timer is up slowly lift press, remove butcher paper and remove liner while warm.
The big reveal is so exciting. The results are so professional. Add a zipper charm for a fun detail.
